The lifestyle dimension of wellness includes our work and workplace, our leisure time and our home environment. As most of us will spend more than half our lives at work, what we do at work matters immensely to our wellness.
There's an old saying that goes; "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life." Those who love what they do can tell you there's plenty of truth to the saying. Another aspect of lifestyle is our finances. If we're not living within our means or riddled with debt, our lifestyle choices can become our downfall.
Our leisure time is another aspect of our wellness that we can control or at least chose wisely so that at any given time we can look back and easily recall a good balance of enjoyment, relaxation time and play. And finally there's the home environment. Our home, the surrounding area we live in, our shopping habits, and many other aspects can make up a great lifestyle without detracting from our personal or family wellness and in fact tends to lead to a generally happy and healthy life.
