What is Occupational Wellness?

Engaging in work that is meaningful, enjoyable and aligns with personal values.  

Occupational Wellness is the ability to achieve a balance between work and leisure time, addressing workplace stress and building relationships with co-workers.

It inspires us to prepare for work in which we will gain personal satisfaction and find enrichment in our life. At the center of occupational wellness is the premise that occupational development is related to one’s attitude about one’s work. Traveling a path toward your occupational wellness, you’ll contribute your unique gifts, skills and talents to work that are both personally meaningful and rewarding. You’ll convey your values through your involvement in activities that are gratifying for you. Occupational wellness focuses on our search for a calling and involves exploring various career options and finding where you fit. Because what we do for a living encompasses so much of our time, it’s important for our overall well-being to do what we love and love what we do. When people are doing what they were meant to do, they deepen their sense of meaning and purpose.
