What Is Wellness?

Did you know that health and wellness are about more than just exercise?

There are 8 components to wellness, each of which can be thought of as a single spoke on the wellness wheel.

Neglecting one of the areas of the wheel may compromise your ability to confront challenges in life (like trying to drive a car with a flat tire).

If you don't listen to your needs, you're more likely to:

  • Be exhausted or overwhelmed
  • Experience low moods
  • Experience resentful thoughts
  • Take your stress out on others
  • Feel anxious or depressed
  • Develop a mental health condition

So it's important to notice any changes in habit, mood or attitude to see how you're doing.

Taking care of one area of wellness will also help them all: for example, caring for your physical health by getting more sleep will also benefit your academic health and help you be a better student.
