Seven Facets of Well-being

Facets of Well-being logo

UChicago takes a holistic approach to wellness by focusing on seven key Facets of Well-being. Wellness is much more than 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 well-being. Each of these seven Facets of Well-being promotes balance in our lives. See below to learn more about each.

Environmental well-being is understanding how your surroundings and community may impact your overall well-being and establishing a supportive environment.
