Edmonton Wellness Clinic
What is wellness? Wellness is more than just a “buzz word”. Although there is no universally accepted definition of wellness, it has been defined as “a multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of well-being.”
The multiple dimensions which make up wellness are:
Physical: The physical dimension includes proper nutrition, exercise, rest and of course a healthy spine and nervous system. Other lifestyle factors also play a role.
Emotional: Emotional wellness centers on the acceptance of your emotions and feelings. Included is the ability to realistically evaluate your limitations and effectively cope with stress.
Spiritual: Spiritual wellness involves the exploration of the meaning of life. It seeks the development of a deep appreciation of all life and natural forces in existence. The question “Who am I and why do I exist?” is the starting point of your journey into spiritual wellness.
Social: The social dimension encourages contributing to the common welfare of your community. It emphasizes the coexistence of you, society, and the environment along with the pursuit of harmony in your life.
Intellectual: Creative and stimulating mental activities are the basis of intellectual wellness. An intellectually well person uses problem solving, creative thinking and learning to expand their knowledge and skills for the betterment of society.
Occupational: Occupational Wellness involves gaining personal satisfaction and finding enrichment in your life through work. Your choice of profession, job satisfaction, career ambitions, and personal performance are all important components of occupational wellness. You are on the right path when your work and hobbies are exciting and rewarding
When all of the above dimensions are in harmony, individuals achieve a greater sense of balance enabling them to live and enjoy life optimally.
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence.
- “Process” means that improvement is always possible
- “Aware” means that we are continuously seeking more information about how we can improve
