The purpose of this guide is to introduce the essential elements of wellbeing, and to create a plan for improving your academic, community, financial, physical, purpose, and social wellbeing.
Wellbeing is about the combination of our confidence in our ability to succeed in the classroom, our love for what we do each day, the quality of our relationships, the security of our finances, the vibrancy of our physical health, and the pride we take in what we have contributed to our communities. Most importantly, it’s about how these elements interact.
Follow the direction below to complete the wellness assessment and create a goal(s) based on your results. The assessment is part of the Taking Charge of Your Health program offered by the University of Minnesota Center for Spirituality and Healing. After you have created a goal(s), be prepared to discuss the reflection prompts with your career counselor/academic adviser or CAPE coach.
