Wellness Consciousness

wellness consciousness

Wellness consciousness is a psychographic variable with great power to predict diverse health-related attitudes and behaviors. However, previous studies largely focus on actual behaviors as measures of health consciousness and do not explore its underlying psychological traits.

This paper mainly investigates the influencing mechanism of people’s health consciousness on home-based exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic. The results show that health life goal and perceived behavioral control mediate the relationship between health consciousness and home-based exercise.

Spiritual Wellness

Spiritual wellness involves having a deep sense of peace, self-awareness and personal beliefs. It can be nurtured by prayer, meditation, time in nature and deep reflection.

A healthy connection to something larger than yourself can help you overcome adversity and feel connected to others. This may include a belief in God, a higher power or even just the idea that life is a gift and we should appreciate every moment.

Participants in the study found that indicators of spiritual health included human behavior such as social responsibility, forgiveness, pacifism and helping others unconditionally. It also included positive feelings such as hope, satisfaction and vitality.

Developing your spiritual wellness can be as easy as joining a group that shares your beliefs or participating in meditation. You can also find ways to connect with others by volunteering and getting involved in your community. This will help you feel more grounded and at ease with life, which can boost your physical wellness.

Physical Wellness

Physical wellness includes recognizing the need for adequate exercise, healthy foods and sleeping well. It also involves maintaining a regular schedule for medical check-ups and practicing safe and responsible sexual health behaviors.

Generally speaking, most consumers are concerned about the impact their daily decisions have on their physical health. They take actions to avoid risky behaviours such as misusing tobacco and alcohol, a lack of exercise and getting too little sleep.

Nevertheless, despite the importance of the concept of wellness consciousness, few studies use it to explain diverse health behaviors. Moreover, those that do have a tendency to measure health consciousness using actual behaviors instead of its psychological traits. Taking this into consideration, this study uses the concept of wellness consciousness to understand its internal mechanism. It finds that health consciousness promotes the formation of a health life goal and further strengthens perceived behavioral control, which in turn leads to home-based exercise during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mental Wellness

Mental wellness is about having a healthy mindset that includes a positive outlook on life, feeling happy and fulfilled, and being able to manage one’s emotions. It also includes healthy coping skills, a good self-image and social connections with others.

Despite the fact that several studies have measured health consciousness, few have analyzed its relation to actual health behaviors and none has used a comprehensive approach. Therefore, this study incorporated all of the items that have been used for measuring health consciousness (except issue-specific ones) into a questionnaire and performed a factor analysis to find out its potential dimensions.

The results of the factor analysis indicated that health consciousness consists of three potential dimensions: health awareness, personal responsibility and health motivation. These three dimensions correlate with the health-related behaviors such as home-based exercise. The higher an individual’s level of health consciousness, the more he or she believes that his or her health behavior is within his or her control.

Emotional Wellness

Emotional wellness is a state of being in which you recognize and express positive and negative feelings and emotions in a healthy way. It’s about self-care, stress reduction and fostering a sense of inner strength.

Studies link emotional wellness with happiness and a lack of it to depression. While being emotionally well doesn’t automatically make you happy, it does arm you with the tools to get there.

When you’re emotionalally well, you can communicate with others with compassion and empathy. You’re able to handle criticism and disagreements with greater ease. You also have a clearer understanding of how your moods and behaviors affect others. Having this awareness helps you to interact more productively and build caring relationships that last. Your emotional wellness is impacted by every aspect of your life, including work and school.
