Below is the Wellness Wheel, which is a good model to consider when you think of your overall wellness. Wellness is when there is a degree of balance among all these areas: Emotional, Physical, Social, Intellectual, Environmental and Spiritual.

Wellness is about how all these dimensions work together, it is an ongoing process that involves personal time and commitment. Like a wheel, if all of the spokes or dimensions are functioning at optimal levels, the wheel rolls along smoothly. If, however, one of the spokes or dimensions becomes weak, the wheel will run off course. Wellness is a choice and a way of life. To learn more about various types of Wellness, please select one of the topics below and explore various websites that will help you on your journey to Wellness. You can also take this free online Wellness Assessment created by Testwell.org and the National Wellness Institute to determine what areas you need to focus on in your life.
