The Twelve Categories of Wellness
“Health is not only about fitness and nutrition, it’s also about balancing all of the other aspects of your life.” – Devon Dionne
On this week’s episode, Devon and I are sharing one of the best tools to help you take the first step to owning your wellness: The Wheel of Wellness. Health and wellness is more than just eating healthy every day and hitting the gym a couple of times a week. It can be about mindfulness, relationships, self-purpose and more.
To help you get a better understanding of your health and wellness, we’ve broken it down into 12 different categories.
The 12 Sections for the Wheel of Wellness:
- Physical Fitness and Activity
- Creativity, Fun, and Recreation
- Personal Growth and Education
- Environment and Nature
- Self-Purpose and Service to the Community
To get started, first you’ll have to grab a piece of paper and something to write with. Draw a circle on the piece of paper and divide it into the 12 different sections of wellness.
Rate each category from 0-5 as far as satisfaction and how you feel about them. Are you happy with your personal growth or could you be doing more?
Draw 5 line markers, label them 1-5 and color in each section.
Reviewing Your Wellness Wheel
“Is your wheel jagged and crooked or is it a perfectly balanced wheel? Even if it is balanced, how did you rate each category? Is everything at a 4 or 5 or are they at 1 or 2 and you just feel flat?” – Rob and Devon Dionne
Take some time to see where you’re at with your wellness wheel. Is everything balanced or are there a couple of areas that you could focus on?
Now, make a list of what you are able to do to make those positive changes happen. For example, if you want to improve your nutrition, try to do a meal prep day once a week or pack healthy snacks. If you need to improve your relationship with someone, schedule in some uninterrupted time to just be with them.
You don’t have to try to improve everything at once. Simply pick 1-3 sections from your wheel that really motivate you to start making some positive changes.
Evaluating Your Wellness Wheel
“Every time you set out to try something and you do not succeed at it, it’s not a failure, but a learning experience. When you reflect on your progress, it just means you’re looking at information. You’re not judging yourself.” – Rob and Devon Dionne
Take some time once a week to look at your accomplishments. Grab your wellness wheel and see if you’ve made any progress. Don’t judge yourself, just reflect on what you’ve done so far with your goals. There’s no failing here; only learning.
If you’re not making the progress you want to make or you’re not motivated to keep trying, go back and reflect once again on your Wheel of Wellness. Choose different sections to focus on or make new goals for yourself.
Evaluate and create a new Wheel of Wellness for yourself every 3 months. Surprising enough, sometimes all it takes is 3 months to see some change!
