The Eight Dimensions of Wellness

Wellness Round Up January 12, 2024 – The Eight Dimensions of Wellness

8 dimensions of health

“Check out this episode of the Library Leadership Podcast – The 8 Dimensions of Wellness for Librarians for an exploration of them in libraries.

One of the things I like about them is that there are so many places to succeed. If you are struggling, pick one and focus on that.

The eight dimensions are:

  • Emotional – coping with life’s challenges and having meaningful relationships
  • Physical – nutritious food, good sleep habits, preventing injury, managing chronic illness
  • Financial – feeling in control and satisfied with current and future finances
  • Social - a sense of connection and belonging
  • Occupational/vocational – purpose, satisfaction, growth, and work/life balance
  • Environmental – care and design for your personal environment for stimulation and well-being support
  • Intellectual – continuous learning, creative expression, new skills and knowledge
  • Spiritual – sense of purpose and meaning, beliefs, morals, and ethics.

If you want to explore the eight dimensions further, here are a few resources.
