Nine Dimensions of Wellness
The Nine Dimensions of Wellness
The OSU Lima Student Wellness Center operates on a nine-dimensional model of wellness. We believe that to achieve overall wellness, a person must be well in all nine dimensions. Peer Coaches are trained in each dimension and can offer advice and resources if you’re struggling with a particular dimension.
What are the nine dimensions?
FINANCIAL - Manage resources to reach goals
PHYSICAL - Ample sleep, plenty of nutrition and exercise,
and avoid drugs, tobacco, and alcohol abuse
SPIRITUAL - Self-discovery for meaning, purpose, and direction
SOCIAL - Support network of friends and family, and engage in
relationships consistent with personal beliefs
CAREER - Professional engagement and work/life balance
INTELLECTUAL - Civic engagement, critical thinking, and expanded world-views
CREATIVE - Participate in the arts and culture for self-expression, stress relief, and skill-building
ENVIRONMENTAL - Protect and improve the environment
EMOTIONAL - Build resiliency, self-esteem, and personal responsibility
