Finding Me Now Learning Center Wellness

 

A wellness plan is a plan of action geared towards achieving personal wellness. Personal wellness implies many aspects of health and satisfaction. There are many elements to personal wellness, and each must be nurtured, developed, and maintained for optimal overall well-being. A wellness plan should take into account all of these varying parts of wellness: physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social, work-related, and financial.

There are many aspects of ourselves that we must evaluate when we are seeking well-rounded wellness.

  • Physical wellness–health and fitness
  • Nutritional wellness–how you fuel your body
  • Mental wellness–how you cope with life
  • Spiritual wellness–how your values affect your actions
  • Emotional wellness–how you handle difficult emotions
  • Cognitive wellness–how you are challenged to keep learning
  • Social wellness–how you relate to others
  • Occupational wellness–how fulfilled you are in your job
  • Financial wellness–how you create financial stability
