Addressing the six dimensions of well-being in our lives creates a holistic sense of well-being and fulfillment. I believe that there are six key components to health. Physical, intellectual, spiritual, emotional, environmental and social. Let's talk about each of these areas and some key components of health in these areas.
The six-dimensional model of well-being was created by Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Institute of Wellness (NWI). Many wellness organizations use this popular model to obtain resources and services. Physical well-being is achieved through the combination of exercise and good eating habits.
It involves personal responsibility and care. The emotional dimension recognizes the awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. Emotional well-being includes the degree to which one feels positive and enthusiastic about oneself and about life. It includes the ability to manage one's feelings and related behaviors, including the realistic assessment of one's own limitations, the development of autonomy, and the ability to effectively cope with stress.
I have experienced this personally, while living in a toxic environment, all other areas of my health were negatively affected.
