What is Wellness?
Wellness is the integration of mind, body and spirit. When we function at optimal levels in all these areas, we can more easily achieve our goals and find meaning and purpose in our lives. Continuous learning and making changes to improve our wellness maximizes our personal potential in a variety of ways.
Important Factors for Wellness
Physical: Improving or maintaining your healthy body provides the basis for overall wellness. Even if you have health concerns, you can maximize the functioning of your body. Keys to physical wellness are good nutrition, regular exercise, avoiding harmful habits, making informed and responsible decisions about self care, and seeking medical attention when necessary. Physical wellness requires that you make the most of what you have!
Intellectual: Engaging the world around you to learn and apply the things that you learn expands your state of wellness. Experiencing new things allows you to constantly grow and learn intellectually. Keys to intellectual wellness are keeping your mind active and alert, trying new things and staying informed in areas of interest.
Emotional: Expressing feelings appropriately without harmful reactions demonstrate emotional wellness. Allowing yourself to feel the rich array of emotions with which you are equipped makes life's journey more rewarding. Keys to emotional wellness are understanding you feelings, accepting limitations, and comfort with the experience of feeling emotion.
Social: Strong and rewarding relationships are essential to social wellness. Relating to one another allows us to be part of a community, connected to each other. Keys for social wellness are opportunities to be affectionate with others, having an interest in humanity as a whole and finding a sense of belonging with others.
Occupational: Wellness in this area implies that our life's work mirrors our values and priorities. Our occupation should make use of our skills and talents as well. Keys to occupational wellness are finding work that enriches your lifestyle and is satisfying and rewarding.
Spiritual: Achieving a state of harmony within yourself and with your "world" exemplifies spiritual wellness. Our ethics, morals and values guide our understanding of spirituality. Keys to spiritual wellness are finding what gives us meaning and direction in life.
Environmental: Arranging our surroundings to be safe, clean and at the desired level of stimulation create environmental wellness. Of course, environmental wellness can be broad enough to include the world, or narrow enough to include our direct surroundings. Keys to environmental wellness are clean air, adequate shelter, personal safety and healthy relationships.

Leads to Success
Soundside Wellness Consultants earned the business of Okaloosa County employees. The County has multiple locations and unique exposures that allowed additional creativity on the part of our Employee Assistance Program (EAP) team from Soundside Wellness Consultants (SWC).
The SWC team was able to put in place a more comprehensive program while addressing some specialty services that were available, such as the 24-hour telephone hotline for Emergency/Crisis Services.
Our EAP clients are appreciative of the professionalism and knowledge provided. They look forward to increased communications and insight from Soundside Wellness Consultants.
Soundside Wellness Consultants are a group of individuals with your goals in mind! We have experts in many areas relating to the health and vitality of the mind, body and spirit. We welcome you!
