Your Wellness

When you think about wellness do you think only about your body? Many things affect wellness. There are eight aspects to your wellness. They are body, mind, environment, spirit, community, emotions, finances and work. Each can affect your quality of life.

Struggles in one aspect can affect other aspects. For example, your finances might affect how you feel you can succeed socially. Or your work may suffer if your mind is not challenged. Take time to focus on each area of your health everyday!
