Grace Zimmermann HP 200 4/30/2015 Wellness Paper Personal Wellness Paper The Seven Dimensions of Wellness are physical, emotional, intellectual, interpersonal, spiritual, environmental, and financial. Each dimension of wellness is connected and affected by the other. Environmental wellness is one of the most important levels of wellness in my life. I am very conscience about the environment and how I affect it. To keep a good environmental wellness, I recycle both paper and plastic bags that you end up with after grocery shopping. I also recycle cans and bring them bag to the store for money. Another thing I do try to is take shorter showers, so I don’t use as much water. I also never leave the water running when brushing my teeth. Physical wellness is another dimensions of wellness that is very important to me. One of the main parts of physical wellness is being physically active. If I don’t get to the gym at least 3- 5 days a week, I usually try to substitute it with something else that I can do outdoors, like hiking, biking, or just going for a long walk. Another part physical wellness is eating healthy and with correct proportions. I try to minimize the sugars I eat and eat more filling protein packed foods to keep me full throughout the day, so I don’t eat at night. By keeping my physical wellness in check, I can have a better emotional wellness. I try to look at things on the positive side because it only makes your day worse if you’re being negative about everything. Staying optimistic also helps my actions towards others be positive. I feel that if I’m optimistic about a problem, they are more likely to look at that problem in a more positive way too. Having an intellectual wellness is also important to me. I like being challenged, so I always try to push myself. For example, this semester I took a scuba class! I was pretty nervous

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
