UW Law Wellness Program

UW School of Law puts an emphasis on the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and faculty. We want to create an environment that gives people the tools, resources, and support they need to lead a healthier lifestyle.

Dimensions of Wellness

The Wellness Program is based on the following five different aspects of wellness:

  • Physical: Physical wellness is the health of your body, including diet and exercise. Are you leading a healthy lifestyle? Do you have a healthy diet? Do you exercise? Do you smoke? Do you take any drugs or drink alcohol? This is what we usually think of when we envision wellness.
  • Mental: Mental wellness is your ability to cope with stress, anxiety, and other challenges of life in a healthy way. When something negative happens in your life or you feel overwhelmed, how do you react?
  • Financial: Financial wellness is having control over your finances at the present while also preparing for the future. Do you have a lot of debt? Do you follow a budget?
  • Spiritual: Spiritual wellness is connecting with our spirituality or religious beliefs. Spiritual wellness does not necessarily mean being religious. It can include a connection to your religious beliefs, but it can also be a sense of balance or purpose. Do you feel connected to the world around you and feel at peace with yourself?
  • Occupational: Occupational wellness is feeling like your career and personal lives are balanced and that you are satisfied with both. Do you feel that your job interferes with your personal life? Are you happy with the direction your career is going?
