Total wellness is not simply based on exercising regularly and eating healthy foods. Rather it involves working to improve the physical, mental, and psychological health of the individual. This holistic approach to health is best described by the Eight Dimensions of Wellness model, which divides well being into eight primary sectors: emotional, financial, social, spiritual, occupational, physical, intellectual, and environmental well being. These eight factors interact in order to promote overall wellness in day to day life.
The GWA Park Rx program aims to supplement wellness in all of its forms. The program specifically utilizes aspects of environmental wellness in order to help users improve their physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.
