Six Dimensions of Health Worksheet
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: I feel that my exercise routine is my activity that reflects my physical health. My eating could be better so my physical fitness contributes more. I work out 3-5 days a week and sometimes more than once a day.
Social health: I feel that my current relationships with my boyfriend, his family, my family and friends are definitely a reflection of my social health. I have been with my boyfriend for 5 years and we spend almost all of our extra time together. When we are not together, I am with my mom, who is my best friend or my sisters.
Intellectual health: I feel that a reflection of my intellectual health may be my grades throughout school and currently in my past classes. I have only had two classes at UOPX, but it has been over 10 years since I have been in class and I still received an A average in both classes. I feel that this shows some of my intellectual health.
Environmental health: My environmental health is reflected by the recycling that I do each week and the fact that I grow a lot of my own vegetables and spices. I feel that if I had the means I would contribute more to the environment as well, such as a more efficient car.
Spiritual health: An activity that reflects my spiritual health would be practicing my religion and following the beliefs of that religion, like the holidays you celebrate and why.
