Choose one of the wellness dimensions and explain whether you feel it is guided more by
nature or nurture. Explain your response.
[Although I believe that all six of the wellness dimensions are guided by both nature and
nurture, I feel that the emoonal wellness dimension is guided more by nurture than nature.
According to the co-founder of the Naonal Wellness Instute, Dr. Bill He/ler, "the emoonal
dimension recognizes awareness and acceptance of one’s feelings" and "it includes the capacity
to manage one’s feelings and related behaviors including the realisc assessment of one’s
limitaons, development of autonomy, and ability to cope e3ecvely with stress. The
fundamentals of how a person is able to process feelings and emoons are learned at an early
age and are carried on into adulthood. What a child experiences in relaon to emoon and
feelings becomes their model in how to handle them as they grow into adulthood. If a child
grows up in a home where they feel they are unable to talk about or express their feelings, then
they will do the same in their adult relaonships. They will have a hard me opening up about
feelings and emoons in his adult relaonships because as a child he or she was expected not
Explain how one dimension of wellness in4uences cognive well-being during a speci5c stage of
[During early development of children, emoonal wellness is key. Children need to feel
comfortable emoonally in order for them to focus on the world around them, explore, and
learn. When a child grows up in an emoonally unstable environment, they are unable to
develop emoonal well-being. They may become anxious, insecure, worried, etc. causing them
to not naturally explore and experience things as they should.]
Idenfy the wellness dimension that you feel most in control of. Explain your response.
[The physical wellness dimension is the dimension that I feel most in
control of. This dimension allows me to understand the value of regular
physical acvity, learn about diet and nutrion, and avoid harmful or
unhealthy habits. I am responsible for partaking in physical acvity, self-
care, and gaining knowledge and understanding of healthy eang habits.]
Idenfy the wellness dimension that you feel least in control of. Explain your response.
[The intellectual wellness dimension is the dimension that I feel least in control of. I enjoy
drawing, painng, coloring, wring, and so many other things but feel like when doing these
acvies, I spend too much me worrying about if what I am working on would look stupid to
the people around me. I guess I just do not trust myself enough to let me imaginaon run wild.]
Choose one dimension that you believe to be predominant in development. Explain your
[The dimension that I believe to be predominant in development is the social wellness
dimension. At the core, humans are social beings. Also, children learn everything from their
parents and the adults with whom they interact. It is something that is taught and learned. Our
development would be signi5cantly hampered if these relaonships did not challenge and ful5ll
Explain how emoonal intelligence and resilience factors a3ect your well-being.
o Consider how you can apply the dimensions of wellness to support your own well-being
in your response.
[Emoonal intelligence and resilience are traits that in4uence a person's capacity to use
emoons appropriately and wisely in various situaons. Individuals who are emoonally
intelligent can e3ecvely perceive and understand emoon in themselves and others, as well as
express and control their own emoons. This allows a person to facilitate their own spiritual,
intellectual, and emoonal development. An emoonally intelligent person can ulize their
thinking and behavior in an e3ort to control their feelings instead of the alternave of allowing
their feelings to control them.]
