Wellness is a journey and the Wellness Network is on that journey with you.

Wellness is a holistic way to approach our health and wellbeing. Mental Health and wellness is impacted by different areas of our lives that interact and influence each other. Everyone’s ideal wellness will focus on different wellness dimensions based on many individual factors such as family history, education, health, income, relationships, personality and so on. As we make our way through life, different dimensions will come in and out of focus. We can explore the different areas of wellness in our lives and determine what dimensions may need more energy to bring us greater wellbeing.

Learn more about each of the 7 Dimensions of Wellness and discover peer-led courses and programs to meet you with what you need right where you’re at.

Physical Wellness

Physical wellness is developed through the combination of positive physical activity / exercise, healthy eating habits, and avoiding harmful substances.  Components of physical wellness include building muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular strength and endurance and flexibility. Physical wellness is also concerned with developing personal responsibility for your own health care, such as caring for illnesses and knowing when professional medical attention is needed. Developing physical wellness empowers you to be able to monitor your own vital signs and understand your body’s warning signs. You’ll understand and appreciate the relationship between good nutrition and how your body performs.

Social & Cultural Wellness

Social and Cultural Wellness refers to one’s ability to interact with people around them. It involves using good communications skills, having meaningful relationships, respecting yourself and others, and creating a support system that includes family members and friends.

Cultural Wellness may be defined as the actions, values and beliefs shared by a group of people, such as an ethnic, racial, geographical, religious, gender, class or age group. Everyone belongs to multiple cultural groups, so each individual is a blend of many influences. Culture includes or influences fashion, language, arts and music, religion, customs, food, laws, social standards, and beliefs. It plays an important role in how people of different backgrounds express themselves, seek help, cope with stress and develop social supports.
