Life is a Journey
We spend our lives in transition, traveling from one point in time to the next. Sometimes the journey is smooth and easy, and other times the journey is bumpy and difficult.
The difference is occasionally the road. Other times the difference is the health of the vehicle traveling the road. Many times it is a combination of both. Think of the circumstances that surround you as the road. And think of yourself as the vehicle, a wheel, that is rolling across that road. As a wheel, are you fully inflated? Or flat? Are you in balance? Or out of balance? Is your wheel thick and hardy? Or thin and worn?
The Wellbeing Wheel provides a way to envision your wheel – to envision yourself, holistically. Your wheel is comprised of different dimensions, or areas, that are equally important. If any of these areas are compromised, ignored, or uncared for, your wheel will not roll as smoothly as it is has the potential to roll.
We can’t always control the condition of the road, but we can improve the journey by taking care of our vehicle… our self! To learn more about holistic wellbeing, and how SCC and the SCC Counseling Department can help you set and meet your wellbeing goals, please explore the links below.
