Wellness Wheelhouse

It can be hard to concentrate on your studies if you’re worried about a fight with a friend. Or you may notice your body feels "off" if you haven’t spent much time outside. That’s because all parts of your life are interconnected and can have positive or negative impacts on each other.

Maintaining a healthy emotional life is important to overall health. Some ways to stay emotionally healthy are to manage your stress level, stay on top of school and work, get eight hours of sleep, ask for help or see a therapist at the counseling center.
Physical wellness involves moving your body through exercise, eating well-balanced meals, sleeping, managing stress and receiving preventative medical and dental care, as well as sexual health screenings.
Financial wellness means taking steps to live within your current financial means and targeting future financial health. You can do this by planning financially, creating a budget and learning to be a good consumer.
Intellectual wellness means staying curious by learning new things, engaging in creative activities, reading for pleasure, building awareness of social and political issues or joining a club that focuses on enhancing intellectual interests.
Spiritual wellness involves understanding the beliefs, values and ethics that help guide your life. Whatever your preferred approach, spending time in reflection and exploring your spiritual life can play an important part of your overall well-being.
Social wellness involves having a strong social network that can you give you support and guidance when you are stressed.
Environmental wellness means taking care of your global environment and your personal surroundings. Decluttering your room, recycling your trash or volunteering to clean up your environment can improve environmental health for you and those around you.
