Dimensions in Wellness: Occupational Wellness


"The occupational dimension recognizes personal satisfaction and enrichment in one's life through work. At the center of occupational wellness is the premise that occupational development is related to one's attitude about one's work. Traveling a path toward your occupational wellness, you'll contribute your unique gifts, skills and talents to work that is both personally meaningful and rewarding. You'll convey your values through your involvement in activities that are gratifying for you. The choice of profession, job satisfaction, career ambitions, and personal performance are all important components of your path's terrain.

Occupational wellness follows these tenets: - It is better to choose a career which is consistent with our personal values interests and beliefs than to select one that is unrewarding to us. - It is better to develop functional, transferable skills through structured involvement opportunities than to remain inactive and uninvolved. "

Dr. Bill Hettler, Cofounder and President of the Board of Directors of the National Wellness Institute

Are you living a balanced life between work and leisure? Is your occupation satisfying? Is it causing you stress that pours over into your personal life?

This is what occupational wellness is all about.

Rethink, reevaluate your occupational wellness.
