To be Boundless is to Flourish.
Our 7 Dimensions of Wellness
Being emotionally well is more than just handling stress. It’s the ability to understand your feelings and cope with the challenges life can bring. To be able to acknowledge and share these feelings allows you to achieve greater emotional stability and better enjoy the journey.
Lifestyle choices that help maintain or improve health and fitness can often lead to living longer. Physical activity, exercise and proper nutrition, while avoiding harmful habits, can help keep you looking good and feeling great while enhancing self-esteem and determination
A healthy mind requires stimulating activities, creative endeavors, problem solving and reasoning. Opening your mind to new ideas and experiences, applying what you’ve learned, and sharing your gifts with others are all ways to keep engaged with the world around you.
Social wellness is achieved through building healthy relationships, a connection with those around you and a support system that includes family and friends. It helps combat the feelings of isolation and loneliness that can plague people as circumstances change.
The ability to do what you love is important to your overall well-being. Making use of your skills and talents helps you stay productive and satisfied. Whether it’s to produce something or to help someone else, it’ll help you feel a greater sense of purpose, happiness and enrichment.
Living a lifestyle that is respectful to your surroundings contributes to a healthier world. Interacting with nature and protecting your environment, having adequate shelter and personal safety are all factors that contribute to your overall wellness.
The path to spiritual wellness is a personal matter. While different individuals may have different beliefs, spiritual wellness is generally considered the search for meaning and purpose in life. It leads one to strive for harmony while working to balance inner needs with the rest of the world.
