Are you Well....???

Check yourself. An evaluation of your 8 Dimensions of Wellness for Women who are bossed up. In every aspect of life.
We are back and just as we are venturing in another week of social distancing, quarantining, masking and glove wearing, we all are at a pivotal point where we will need to check our emotional well being to make sound decisions as we move into creating new norms.
“What does it really mean to be well. I'm not sick?.”
Wellness involves being aware of ourselves as whole people, including a sense of balance and contentment. It is the feeling that things are going well for us today, and can continue to go well for us tomorrow. It is the belief that we have meaningful relationships and a sense of meaning and purpose. Although we may have setbacks, or experience stress, we are resilient and we have strength, material resources, and the support of others to survive and thrive. At the Institute, we believe that helping people improve their personal wellness, as they define it, is critical.
Wellness involves a sense of empowerment. Each day we wake up we can make choices. Empowerment goes hand-in-hand with taking personal responsibility for our day to day choices and our lives. Wellness and balance are defined by you, based on what you think is important and needed, as well as on your personal goals and values.
Wellness is not the absence of disease, illness, and stress but the presence of:
• Purpose in life
• Active involvement in satisfying work and play
• Joyful relationships
• A healthy body and living environment
Wellness is a conscious, deliberate process that requires being aware of and making choices for a more satisfying lifestyle.
A wellness lifestyle includes a self defined balance of health habits such as sleep and rest, eating well, productivity, participation in meaningful activity, and contact with supporters. Wellness is multi-dimensional: physical, spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, occupational, environmental, and financial.
Scale 1-------10. 1:Broken, there is a lot of work that needs to be done here. 10: is being really blessed, I am happy with my level of relationship and I would not adjust anything. Trust your intuition. Your first number that comes to mind is your first real answer. Write your number down.
Dimension 1: Physical Wellness
Do you like the body you are in? Do you have a physical health routine? Are you engaging in a healthy regime that you enjoy? Are you genuinely happy with your health and do your actions align to your beliefs? Can you answer the questions, I consume foods that are healthy for me? I get enough sleep, which promotes a well rested mind?
