Salisbury University's Student Wellness Program


                           Wellness

Life is a Journey, not a destination.

Salisbury University's Wellness Program is a principle leadership organization for advancing the health and wellness of college students and campus communities through the active involvement of our student's.  Its mission is to help students live healthy balanced lifestyles that incorporate the positive attitudes and productive behaviors related to our 8 dimensions of wellness.

Wellness Dimensions:

  • Occupational - Achieving a healthy balance between class work, work and leisure time, addressing workplace and classroom stress's, and building strong relationships with coworkers and classmates.  
  • Emotional - Developing self-awareness, managing stress in healthy ways, care for emotional crisis, relaxation.
  • Physical - Engaging in healthy activities, and taking care of one's body, nutrition, fitness and medical self-care.
  • Social/Interpersonal - Healthy relationships with family, friends and others, a sense of belonging, and contributing to a community.
  • Intellectual - Education, thinking about things in new ways, mental stimulation, career development.
  • Spiritual - Participation in a faith community, connection to something greater than one's self, love, hope, peace, a sense of purpose.
  • Financial- Achieving a balance between having a healthy state of wellbeing today, while preparing financially for tomorrow, where one feels that they have control over their current finances and their financial future.
  • Environmental- Trying to live in harmony with the earth by understanding the impact of your interaction with nature and your personal environment, and taking action to protect the world around you.

Goals:

  • Increase awareness of factors and resources contributing to well-being while encouraging habits of wellness.
