Physical wellbeing is probably the most addressed out of all 7 categories of wellness. Physical wellbeing can consist of metabolic health, weight, blood pressure, and all things related to your physical biology.

Intellectual Wellness

Intellectual wellbeing considers whether the individual is intellectually nourished. Are they actively using their brain? Are they struggling mentally? How is their mental health? All of these factors are related to our quality of life. When we are not intellectually well, it can affect the greater ecosystem of our wellness.

Emotional Wellness

Emotional wellness is becoming more and more talked about, thankfully. Wellness looks at the whole of a person’s emotional state: are they more often happy than sad? Are they emotionally stable or out-of-balance? All of these things play a large factor in the overall wellbeing of a person. When we have more emotional stability, we navigate life more rationally and from a more grounded place.

Social Wellness

Community is ingrained in us as humans. We are meant to have community, to spend time with others, and to build meaningful relationships. When we lack relationships, fulfillment is hard to achieve. It actually directly affects our health and happiness.

Spiritual Wellness

For all people, having some spiritual connection is a crucial aspect to wellness. Whether you follow a specific religion or belief system or you choose to nourish yourself independently, believing in something bigger than yourself is imminent. Spiritual wellness is not to be overlooked.

Occupational Wellness

Nowadays, more and more people are beginning to disidentify with their jobs, and seeking more opportunities to work in ways that are better for their health. Occupational health tends to get curious about how your job is overall contributing to your wellness. Is it adding to your sense of fulfillment? Is it taking away from your happiness? Is it contributing to weight gain, stress, lack of sleep? All important questions.

Environmental Wellness

Finally, environmental wellness asks about the wellness of your living space. This term considers the state of your home, toxins we’re exposed to, the city you live in, the country you live in, etc. This is yet another valuable contribution to our overall wellness.
