Shakespeare said: “There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.” Self-talk is one of the most effective forms of cognitive coping, if your inner voice is kind to you.
Whole-person wellness programs incorporate the 6 basic wellness dimensions: emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual, and vocational.
Wellness is a popular buzz word these days that might seem to be based strictly on physical health, fitness and nutrition, but it is much more than this. It involves working with all facets of life, to keep balanced, healthy and happy.
There are six core areas of wellness that contribute to our overall level of wellness. To invest in wellness is to learn how to take practical steps towards making positive changes in an area of wellness that feels out of balance.
Each dimension of wellness directly affects happiness, quality of life and life satisfaction:
Wellness is the continual process of making choices towards a happier, more successful life.
But, how can people make positive choices for a better life if they don’t have enough knowledge about specifically what needs to change, or where to start?
The whole-person approach to wellness education acknowledges that people are multidimensional; made up of a complex combination of needs, wants, talents, skills and experiences.
Teaching the core dimensions of wellness empowers people to make the right choices for them, and inspires people take steps towards positive change.
As a result, higher-level wellness creates people who can more effectively contribute to society.

Nikki always made me feel comfortable talking about anything… I always felt Nikki was there with me and engaged with what I was saying. She helped me brainstorm what would and wouldn’t work to achieve my goals, without me feeling judged or overwhelmed.

It’s good just to stop and think about things… life gets busy and just takes over. Giving yourself the time to think about priorities, goal setting and what means the most to you is important. Thank you for helping me to do this, Nikki.
