Wellness goes beyond just avoiding illness or distress—it’s about making choices for a balanced and fulfilling life. To support students in their wellness journey, SOS recommends using the Well-being Dimensions. This tool outlines eight dimensions of wellness, helping students assess what influences their overall well-being. These dimensions are interconnected and essential for a balanced life.
