Mental and Emotional Wellness

This component of wellness includes attention to one's mental health, resiliency, self-care behaviors, and ability to deal with positive and negative emotions. It also refers to finding meaning and purpose in living a balanced life aligned with one's values. When your mental and emotional well-being is nurtured, you can enjoy life despite stresses, disappointments and frustrations, as well as learn and grow from your experiences.

Environmental and Institutional Wellness

Our shared environment impacts our well-being, and as such we should optimize institutional structures, culture, and physical spaces in a way that enhances health. As members of the Johns Hopkins community, we each contribute to the overall community while also impacting our natural world. Environmental wellness includes respect for our shared environment and natural resources, as well as promoting an institution where all members feel safe and supported.

Intellectual Wellness

Finding stimulation and fulfillment in your academic and career endeavors is important for your overall well-being. Intellectual wellness includes developing skills and knowledge through academic, cultural, community, and personal activities. While this does not mean that every moment at work or school will be blissful, finding satisfaction and meaning in your work will help foster content and a sense of pride.
