8 Dimensions of Well-Being

8 dimension of wellness are emotional, physical, occupational, social, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, and financial

CSU Pueblo recognizes the importance of your well-being. Wellness comprises of eight mutually co-dependence dimensions: emotional, physical, occupational, social, spiritual, intellectual, environmental, and financial. If any one of these dimensions is neglected over time, it will adversely affect one’s health, well-being, and quality of life. A well-rounded balance of these wellness dimensions provides holistic harmony to one’s personal well-being.

Just like a balanced diet is needed for healthy nutrition, balanced wellness engages the body, mind, and nurtures the spirit. This multi-dimensional wellness approach focuses on emphasizing the importance of positivity and eternal motivation for promoting healthy habits to improve one’s quality of life.

 Learn how each dimension of wellness helps create an environment that nurtures and builds a healthy lifestyle.
