Social Wellness is the ability to interact with people around you. It involves using good communications skills, having meaningful relationships, respecting yourself and others, and creating a support system that includes family members and friends.

Physical Wellness is developed through the combination of beneficial physical activity/exercise and healthy eating habits. Components of physical wellness include building muscular strength and endurance, cardiovascular strength and flexibility.

Spiritual Wellness is a personal matter involving values and beliefs that provide a purpose in your life. Individuals may have different views of what spiritualism is, but it is generally considered to be the search for meaning and purpose in human existence, leading one to strive for a state of harmony with oneself and others while working to maintain a well-balanced life.

Emotional Wellness involves more than just handling stress. It also involves being attentive to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, whether positive or negative.
