UChicago Facets of Wellness

Holistic Wellness

UChicago takes a holistic approach to wellness by focusing on 7 key facets of wellness. Wellness is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

The model used by our campus includes emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual wellness. Each of these seven facets of wellness promote balance in our lives.
