Encompassing Your Well-being
What is sucess and how do you measure it?
There are 7 Dimensions of Wellness: Physical, Spiritual, Intellectual, Emotional, Social, Occupational and Environmental.
Each one plays an equally important role in our lives, encompassing our whole well-being. How we manage them depends entirely on us – thru the decisions and choices we make every single day.
What lays behind each dimension is a series of small and big actions we choose to take and were able to commit to with consistency, perseverance, discipline and love. Those actions, choices and decisions, act as a mirror reflecting our way of life; showing what we cultivate, our priorities, preferences and personal goals . They are the compass that takes us to our summit.
Sometimes, life throws a few curves at us and we’re face with significant change. Wether it means leaving our comfort-zone to explore something new, taking new risks or new overwhelming responsibilities or transitioning from one stage of life to the next.
