“Wellness” is a term that is defined by a variety of factors that affect your healing process. If any of these needs are not being met in your life, then it is likely the reason why you are not healing, despite all of your efforts.
The following are all of the needs that you must meet in order to be truly healthy.
Maintaining emotional wellness is more than just being able to handle stress. It also includes being able to analyze your thoughts, feelings and behaviors whether they are positive or negative.
Emotional wellness is the ability to accept your feelings instead of just denying them. You should be able to experience disappointment and frustration, yet still have an optimistic outlook on life. You can do this by:
Being aware of your thoughts and feelings
Having a positive attitude
Seeking support and expressing your emotions in a healthy manner
Accepting your mistakes and learning from them
Intellectual wellness is defined as being able to constantly expand your knowledge and improve your skills through the use of learning resources as well as through scholastic, cultural and community activities.

Challenging yourself to see more than one side to every issue
Recognizing that the concept of “learning” is a lifelong process
Physical wellness is taking proper care of your body in terms of functionality and health. It mainly consists of two components: exercise and nutrition. Exercise ensures that you are able to easily move your body, while good nutrition provides you with energy throughout your day.
Both of these factors help ward of the common ailments and diseases that many people face, as well as make us feel better about ourselves in general. Some ways that you can improve your physical wellness include:
Getting at least 30 minutes of physical activity everyday (can be split up into three 10 minute sessions)
Taking the stairs instead of the elevator
Standing instead of sitting
Making sure you get a variety of nutrients from many different food sources (vegetables, fruits, grains, meats etc.)
Getting at least seven to nine hours of sleep at night and maintaining a regular sleep schedule
Social wellness refers to the relationships we have with other people and how we interact with others on a day-to-day basis. Having healthy social wellness can be defined as building nurturing and supportive relationships with those around you, as well as having a genuine connection with certain individuals in your life.
You can improve your social wellness by:
Reflecting on yourself and your social needs (what do you enjoy about your social life? Are there any parts of it that you feel need improvement?)
Making an effort to keep in touch with supportive friends and family members
Taking part in group discussions
Join a club or an organization
Environmental wellness means you are living in harmony with your surrounding areas, and nature. Having improved environmental wellness means you are aware of the impact you have on the environment and you make a conscious effort to reduce this impact. It will not only improve your wellness, but the wellness of future generations as well.
You can improve your environmental wellness by:
Walking or bicycling instead of driving
Respecting nature and the other species that live in it
Protecting yourself from environmental hazards such as noise, air and water pollution
Reducing waste and recycling
Becoming educated on environmental issues
Financial wellness is feeling safe and secure with your finances and being able to set and attain financial goals that you feel will improve your life (buying a car, paying off your mortgage etc.).
You can improve your financial wellness by:
Being fully aware of what you are spending your money on, and prioritizing your spendings
Making sure that you are earning more than you are spending so that you can set money aside to reach your financial goals
Planning for unforeseen emergencies that may require money such as medical or legal issues
Having an independent and trustworthy source of information that can guide you in the right direction when it comes to buying expensive products or making investments
Spiritual wellness is a very personal issue regarding the values and beliefs that provide a purpose in your life. Although the definition of spirituality varies from person to person, it is generally considered to be a search for purpose and meaning in one’s own existence.
You can improve your spiritual wellness by:
Making time for relaxation in your day-to-day life
Making time for meditation and prayer
Making sure that your decisions and actions are based on your own values
Respecting the beliefs and views of others around you.
So, if you want to live your life to the fullest and drastically improve your overall health, you will make a conscious effort to improve your emotional, intellectual, physical, social, environmental, financial and spiritual wellness.
