What is Wellness?

  • Holistic… involving the whole person
  • The connections between the Mind, Body & Spirit
  • The product of many choices we make daily

A Multi-Component Model of Wellness

We believe that holistic health means looking at the entire person and how that person fits into the universe. While each component of our lives is essential, no single area outweighs the others.  We strive not to establish a hierarchy, but rather to create a balance.

[The six components of wellness included in this model were selected to highlight certain areas of wellness that are frequently overlooked such as environmental responsibility.  We acknowledge that there are other useful models of wellness out there.  This model has proved to be very effective when working with the college student population as well as in community health education.  It is also a great way to teach children about the big picture of life!]
