"It doesn’t even look like it was built," I said. "It’s too beautiful. It looks like something alive that just *grew* here."

Last year in my introductory course to health sciences, Determinants of Health (HSS 1101) I’ve learned that besides physical wellness, health encompasses 6 other dimensions: (1) social health, (2) emotional health, (3) spiritual health,(4) environmental health, (5) occupational health, and (6) intellectual health.
Taking this class and learning about the 7 dimensions of health made me realized that wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Each of these seven dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to our own quality of life.
Wellness is achieving one’s full potential. It is self-directed and an ever-evolving process that follows a lifestyle of balance in health that ultimately decreases the likelihood of becoming ill physically, mentally, and spiritually. Comprised of seven dimensions and characteristics, wellness is achieved when a person’s life includes all seven elements in combination and in whole.
Yes! Yes! Yes! Wellness and health are not just about what you eat and how much exercise you do.

In response to some requests from wildlife rehabbers (aka my heroes), I’ve put two free English printable PDFs on my site. If you find them useful and are able, support me by grabbing something in my store.
