CHWB - Wellness
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence. We never arrive at a point where there is no room for improvement. The traditional wellness model has six dimensions: physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, social, and occupational.
The Emotional Dimension
Emotional wellness emphasizes an awareness and acceptance of one's feelings. It also includes how one feels about themselves, the ability to control one's feelings, and to express one's feelings.
The Intellectual Dimension
Intellectual wellness encourages one to participate in mentally stimulating and creative activities. Improving intellectual wellness can happen in and out of the classroom. It is the ability to think clearly, reason objectively, and to make responsible decisions.
