Six Dimensions of Health Worksheet

Part 1

For each of the following six dimensions of health, list at least one characteristic, activity, belief, or attitude that reflects that dimension in your life. Provide a brief explanation with each example. Refer to Ch. 1 in the text for explanations of these dimensions.

Physical health:
My body type is petite, which means when I put on extra pounds it shows more than someone of an average body type. I can walk every day after my evening meals in order to burn off calories from the day. By doing this I will lose weight, and establish a physically active daily routine.

Social health:
An activity that fosters social health is setting aside date night with my husband. Sometimes when you are a mother, employee, and a student it’s important to remember that you are a person too. Since we have been doing this, I feel as if I’m still able to take part in the world socially and have a strong relationship.

Intellectual health: A characteristic of this dimension is the ability to think clearly, and take all accounts of a situation into consideration before reaching a decision. I do this by taking a deep breathe, and a step back from every situation having some time that I can sit down and think before making a rash decision.

Environmental health: I believe that everyone has a responsibility and an obligation to make sure we protect our environment not only for us, but for the generation to come. Going green is a great activity we can do to help promote environmental health, as well as recycling.

Emotional health: In order to promote emotional health I realize that I do have a problem, and have been diagnosed as being bipolar. In order to make sure that I take all steps necessary to overcome this I take my medication regularly. Realizing that I’m not the only one who experiences this is a great relief to me, and helps me stay positive about my emotional health.
