Areas of Wellness


When thinking about a person’s health and wellness, we tend to think of only physical health. While physical health is important, there are four other vital aspects to consider: social, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional. These all fall under the umbrella term of "wellness". If one of these aspects is overlooked, there can be long term impacts that impede student development. The following activities will address, simulate, and analyze personal wellness. Some of your students may either be struggling with sensitive or traumatic issues. Approaching this unit with delicacy, sensitivity, and professionalism is important.

Wellness Teacher Background

Having healthy students is a balancing act. If a student prioritizes one area of wellness over the others, they unintentionally create a potentially unhealthy setting during a critical developmental time. Social wellness is usually a big focus for middle school and high school students. When students focus solely on social health, other areas may drop. They may sacrifice intellectual growth opportunities in order to maintain their social lives. These decisions might seem insignificant at the time, but placing high value on one area long term may cause disproportionate wellness.

A teacher’s role is to stimulate the multiple areas of wellness in our students. Our priorities may be biased toward intellectual wellness, especially in a given subject. Focusing on the importance of that area is not misplaced, as students often rely on teachers to be their sole source of intellectual stimuli. However, a student who is struggling with emotional wellness may struggle to reach intellectual wellness. Teaching recognition of different aspects is a critical step to achieving balance, and giving students the tools and resources they need to help maintain that balance is equally important.
