8 Dimensions of Wellness

Here at Marymount, Saints care about their health and wellness. Wellness is defined as a facet of health that goes beyond the absence of disease. Another way to think about it, is that wellness refers to a positive state (being well) and illness refers to a negative state (being ill). Wellness is inclusive, self-directed, and on-going. 

The 8 dimensions of wellness can serve as a guide for living a positive lifestyle where you can truly thrive. Think about your wellness needs and goals as you aim to create a balance between the dimensions that resonate with you the most.
