Wellness

Employee health is a top concern for CHI. In an effort to assist our employees into living healthier, happier lifestyles and promoting a positive work-life balance, CHI formed a Wellness Committee to serve this purpose. This committee is responsible for establishing aerobics, basketball, salsa dancing, tennis and walking programs available to each employee free of charge.

Wellness-Model

There is more to being healthy than nutrition and exercise. There are several components that make up total body wellness.

Physical Wellness is taking care and being aware of our body’s physical needs. Such as maintaining a healthy balanced diet, participating in regular exercise, visiting the doctor regularly and getting enough rest and relaxation.

Environmental Wellness includes our relationship with the earth and nature and the space around us. Keeping our personal space organized helps us feel more comfortable with less anxiety.

Spiritual Wellness is having a healthy sense of purpose and direction. Having a healthy set of values and beliefs makes it easier to search for meaning and purpose in our lives.  This may involve meditation, prayer, or personal spiritual practices.  Being spiritually well is feeling inner peace within ourselves and the world around us.

Emotional Wellness is managing and accepting our positive and negative feelings. It’s understanding why we feel and behave the way we do and understanding who we are. Being emotionally healthy is learning how to handle life’s challenges and managing stress.

Occupational Wellness has to do with finding the right career fit for our personality. It also involves finding the balance between work life and personal life. When our jobs are fulfilling, it provides a sense of purpose and meaning.  Since we spend so much time at work doing something we enjoy makes a huge difference in our total well-being.

Intellectual Wellness involves doing activities that exercise the mind. Such as being creative and learning new skills, reading, and taking up new hobbies. Participating in activities where you learn more about yourself and the world around you helps lead a more fulfilled life.

Social Wellness is building and maintaining healthy and supportive relationships. We all have relationships, whether they are professional or personal and they are an important part of who we are. The healthier our relationships are the better we will feel.
