Physical Wellness

Physical wellness promotes proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning. There are many elements of physical wellness that all must be cared for together. Overall physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition and mental well-being to keep your body in top condition. Obtaining an optimal level of physical wellness allows you to nurture personal responsibility for your own health. As you become conscious of your physical health, you are able to identify elements you are successful in as well as elements you would like to improve.

Mental Wellness

Mental wellness is defined as “a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.”

Many internal and external factors contribute to cognitive and emotional well-being, including relationships with loved ones, financial issues, work environment, and coping behaviours/skills. When one or more factors prove overwhelming, acute (anger, anxiety, depression) or chronic stress may result. Stress can lead to physical symptoms ranging in severity from headache, heart palpitations and bowel problems, to heart attack and stroke. When an individual is experiencing chronic stress, their risk of committing a violent act against themselves (suicide) and others increases significantly.

Financial Wellness

Financial Wellness involves the process of learning how to successfully manage financial expenses. Money plays a critical role in our lives and not having enough of it impacts health as well as academic performance. Financial stress is repeatedly found to be a common source of stress, anxiety and fear for college students. Keeping track of expenses, making a budget, and sticking to it are important skills to have in order to be financially responsible and independent. Learning how to maximise your financial wellness now will help you feel prepared to handle potentially stressful financial situations in the future.
