Promoting Wellness During a Pandemic

Paying attention to our mental health has never been more important than during a crisis such as the global pandemic, the economic downturn, and persistent inequalities we are facing today.

Many of us feel isolated, confined and generally out of sorts. We are providing this information to assist you in improving and managing wellness during these difficult times.

The National Wellness Institute promotes the six dimensions of wellness as: emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual and spiritual. Addressing all six dimensions of wellness in our lives builds a holistic sense of wellness and fulfillment. Developed by Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute (NWI), this interdependent model for the Six Dimensions of Wellness provides the categories from which NWI derives its resources and services.

The handouts below provide information about each dimension, as well as information about the services that offices on campus offer in promoting overall wellness and resiliency in the face of stressors and adversity.
