Healthy IU’s approach is based on the whole-person model of the 8 Dimensions of Wellness.
Why the 8 Dimensions? According to the National Institutes of Health, people often think about wellness in terms of physical health, but it is so much more. Wellness is a holistic integration - fueling the body, engaging the mind, and nurturing the spirit. Although it always includes striving for health, it’s more about living life fully, and is “a lifestyle and a personalized approach to living life in a way that allows you to become the best kind of person that your potentials, circumstances, and fate will allow".
