NINE DOMAINS OF WELLNESS

EMOTIONAL
Emotional well-being is the ability to regulate moods, thoughts, and feelings, and adapt when confronted with adversity or stressful situations. It is accepting the full range of emotions, in self and others.

PHYSICAL
Recognizing the importance of physical activity, sleep, nutrition, intimacy, and healthcare. Balancing these areas requires effort and persistence.

SOCIAL
Developing a sense of connection, belonging, community, and support system.

OCCUPATIONAL
Personal satisfaction, sense of productivity, and enrichment obtained from one’s work or craft.

SPIRITUAL
Meditation, prayer, expanding sense of personal purpose and meaning.

INTELLECTUAL
Searching for ways to expand knowledge, learning, skill sets, and creativity.

FINANCIAL
Comfort and sense of safety with current and future financial scenarios.

ENVIRONMENTAL
Creating stimulating personal environments, indoor and outdoor, that foster well-being. We occupy space in our room, home, office, neighborhood, and niche. How does your environment support you?

UNIVERSAL
Our sense of being part of the cosmos; that what we do has an effect on others and on the world.

A Discussion on Mental Health & Wellness in the Restaurant Industry

I am so pleased to give back to the restaurant and bar industry, who nourish us.

Lack of healthcare, high stress work environments, substance abuse, racism, misogyny, living off tips, wage theft, labor abuses, mismanagement, no breaks…. All of these things and more contribute to restaurant workers overall health and wellness.
