Incorporating healthy eating habits, increasing daily activity and spending time focused on mindfulness can lead to a happier, healthier you with an increased quality of life. Making an effort to lead a healthier lifestyle not only sets a good example for those around you but can increase satisfaction in other areas of your life as well! However, wellness is much more than just nutrition and exercise. It is intertwined with other dimensions of life, such as having a healthy environment, understanding and coping with emotions, feeling fulfilled intellectually, getting support socially and feeling confident and healthy in your own skin. There are eight key dimensions that make up overall wellness. Learn more about the Eight Dimensions of Wellness and Tips for Creating a Balanced, Healthy Life!
