There are 8 dimensions to human wellness according to the national Substance Abuse and Mental Health Service Administration (SAMHSA). Each dimension needs to be kept healthy to have improved wellness, and the planning can be different for each of them too.
The 8 dimensions and some suggestions for them include:
Emotional: You could take a nap, talk with a loved one, read, write, journal, listen to music, paint, or watch something that suits your mood.
Environmental: You could go on a walk, lay in the sun, hike a local trail, or pick up litter that you come across.
Financial: You could open a savings account, start saving a certain amount of money per day, invest, or cut back on any spending you find unnecessary.
Intellectual: You can listen to podcasts, audiobooks, read, complete puzzles, and be mindful of the things around you.
Occupational: You could work for that promotion, get that degree you want, or learn a trade. If you want to start a business, perhaps you get the ball rolling!
Physical: Eat a healthy diet, get exercise daily, see your doctor and dentist, and get enough sleep.
Social: Keep in contact with old friends, meet up with friends and family, engage in healthy social media use, and be a positive figure.
Spiritual: Go to church, meditate, pray, connect with other believers, and think about your purpose in life.
These are only some suggestions for each of these categories. Play around! Finding the right kind of self-care activities can benefit your life in incredible ways, so start trying some now!
