HEALTH AND WELLNESS
In the process of achieving self-sufficiency, you will need to learn how to care for and maintain a healthy balance in your life. Also, learning how to access services in your community that support this process is important. Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of— and making choices for— a healthier lifestyle
What does wellness mean to you? Wellness is more than being free from illness. Wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth. There are many interrelated dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, and occupational. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health.
Perform social roles effectively and comfortably, and create a support network.
Enjoy your occupational endeavors and appreciate your contributions.

Have an open mind when you encounter new ideas and continue to expand your knowledge.
Activity and Fitness: appropriate amounts of physical activity for development and maintenance of good physical condition
Nutrition: opportunities for a balanced diet and making wise food choices
Medical: regular self-tests and checkups, proper use of medications, and access to medical care
Environment: safety in the home and in your community
Emotional: viewing difficult situations as challenges and opportunities for growth and adopting a positive attitude; also, being able to express emotions appropriately
Why it is important:
Learning to make healthy choices and strive for balance helps to keep you on the path to achieving your goals. While you are in care and when you transition to adulthood, it is important to utilize the resources and supports that can help you stay healthy.
