The Eight Dimensions of Wellness

Environmental- is the ability to recognize our own responsibility for the quality of the air, the water and the land that surrounds us.

Financial- is the ability to maintain a balanced budget with current and future financial situations.

Intellectual- is the ability to open our minds to new ideas and experiences that can be applied to personal decisions, group interaction and community betterment.

Occupational- is the ability to get personal fulfillment from our jobs or our chosen career fields while still maintaining balance in our lives.

Physical- is the ability to maintain a healthy quality of life that allows us to get through our daily activities without undue fatigue or physical stress. 

Psychological- is the ability to understand ourselves and cope with the challenges life can bring.

Social- is the ability to relate to and connect with other people in our world.

Spiritual- is the ability to establish peace and harmony in our lives. 

*Faculty and Staff Wellness is not a part of KU Recreation Services, or any other department on campus.  The Wellness Committee consists of individuals who have a passion for wellness and has an interest in helping the University of Kansas’s Faculty and Staff.
