Domains of Proactive, Holistic Wellness

Research in positive psychology, flourishing, and well-being confirms that deep thriving requires a broader view of wellness than physical or mental health alone.* Comprehensive wellness efforts across multiple domains produces correspondingly safe, social, whole-hearted, whole-bodied, whole-minded, and whole-spirited people. Because the domains are so interconnected and mutually supportive, enriching any one domain enriches them all. Additional areas such as sexual, financial, or vocational well-being can be found within other domains (e.g., physical, safety, and eudaimonic).
