Our mission is to create awareness around the six dimensions of wellness and to empower students to make choices that will help them be the best versions of themselves. Elon students gave their input and decided on the six dimensions to create an Elon-specific wellness model. This website will provide you with articles, events, and resources for each dimension of wellness that are purposeful in their focus on balance and clarity.
What Is Wellness?
According to the National Wellness Institute, wellness can have three definitions. “Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential. Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment. Wellness is positive and affirming,” (National Wellness Institute, 2020). When it comes to optimal wellbeing, balance is key. You want to actively feed your fire, but you do not want the flames to get out of control. It may seem overwhelming to maintain wellness in every dimension, but we are here to help. There are simple things you can incorporate into your daily routine that can improve each dimension of wellness. We want to ignite your passion for your health and wellbeing, while giving you the resources that keep the flame alive, without reaching burnout.
