EIGHT DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS- THE MORE THINGS CHANGE THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME
As parents, you are one of your child's most important teachers; a key role in his or her social emotional development. According to a featured article in Promoting a Positive School Climate, "Social and emotional development builds the "soft skills" that are important for success in school and beyond."
When youth are encouraged to build and practice things like learning to express feelings/emotions, develop relationships and communicate with others, it is key to helping them find positive solutions to problems, and making healthy safe choices. It is a foundation for wellness and being in a healthy environment.
Wellness can be a conscious, deliberate process that requires awareness of/ and making choices for a more satisfying lifestyle. Wellness is not merely the absence of disease, illness and stress, but the presence of the dimensions listed in the diagram. Each dimension is interconnected covering every aspect of your life.
