6 Dimensions of Wellness You Need to Improve to Have a Better Life

Wellness is not only a part of your life, but it is the whole life itself. It is not about how many calories you have a day, how many fats you pile up in your body, how many hours you spend to jog every morning. It is more than that.

It is about all of the combinations of behavioral choices. Wellness is the varied dimensions of life that holistically form a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a term used to describe the combination of physical and mental health. So, it will be about balancing those two dimensions.

It will be such a waste if you have a good career achievement but you only sleep three hours at night. Or you enjoy your social life at fullness, partying every night, but you do not have any good achievements in life. In other words, it should be balanced to taste the sweetness of the value of life.

Here are six elements of wellness in your life that you should put more attention to reach the endless happiness of your life. You can inspect yourself in these six elements, whether you are good enough or still lack in some of them. Grab your notes to mark some points!

1. Spiritual

By spiritual, it means that you must try to find the meaning and purpose of life. This way, you will find the value of your life. You can start joining in activities that can make you feel that you are needed by somebody else. There are many people who need your creativity, your energy, your dedication to continuing their life. You know, everybody has a role in this universe.

2. Emotional

Understanding and respecting your feelings, values, and attitudes may put you in a good state of emotion. Embrace every emotion that you feel, be it’s sad, angry, or happy. All of them are just something common that everybody has. “It’s okay not to be okay” is the most common quote to embrace the sadness. You only have to manage and do not deny it instead.

3. Physical

You have to put your physical state in good condition. In general, it is about health, you have to start to eliminate the “bad food” from your storage and change it into the “good food”. For the outside aspect, trying a light workout 30 minutes every morning may increase your healthiness.

4. Career

By working on your career and achievement, you will fill a place in your heart called satisfaction. As a human, we cannot deny that we need some bucks to live our life. But it’s not the only goal. The goal is you love what you do to get that achievement.

5. Social

Start to build a positive relationship with others and you will get positive feedback in return. Not only giving care to others, but you also have to let others care about you. We do need somebody to lean on in our darkest day or in our happiest moment in life. Share every moment with others!

6. Intellectual

Learning about something new will give you not only a new point of view but also new skills and creativity. It will make your life more valuable and become meaningful.
