When you think about wellness do you think only about your body? Many things affect wellness. There are eight aspects to your “life-health.” They are body, mind, environment, spirit, community, emotions, finances and work. Each can affect your quality of life. It’s best to think about all of them!
Struggles in one aspect can affect other aspects. For example, your finances might affect how you feel you can succeed socially. Or your work may suffer if your mind is not challenged.
