What is wellness? Wellness is most importantly a choice to assume responsibility for one's quality of life. It is an active process that allows people to make positive choices in creating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is not simply the absence of disease, but a robust state of well-being that recognizes the existence and importance of the mind, body, and spirit connection. Today, many wellness models focus on achieving balance amongst several dimensions of one's life: intellectual, emotional, cultural, occupational, spiritual, physical, and social.

Some practical suggestions for balancing each life dimension are the following:

  • Intellectual Wellness: have an open mind when encountering new ideas and concepts; attend an event or seminar on campus on a topic of interest.
