8 Dimensions of Wellness
Wellness is often thought of as physical, emotional or mental health; however, our health and well-being is influenced by so much more.
Our health and wellness efforts at the University of Kansas are focused on the 8 Dimensions of Wellness below:

Of these eight dimensions, it is natural for some dimensions to be more important in your life than others and everyone's routines and values are different. For example, some people exercise regularly, may be more social than others, recycle, or love reading books. Your level of wellness within each dimension also changes over time, especially during life events. We will all go through highs and lows, so during times of uncertainty look at the bright side, remain hopeful, and adapt.
The Faculty and Staff Wellness Committee encourages and promotes the well-being of KU employees through education, prevention and support for development of healthier choices.
