Occupational wellness is defined as the inspiration and recognition to prepare and feel prepared for work in which we will gain personal enrichment and satisfaction.
Why is it important?
Developing occupational wellness will allow you to communicate your values through involvement in occupational activities that are gratifying for you. It is also important to identify workplace stress in order to practice conflict management. Conflict management is key to achieving an optimal level of occupational wellness. Choosing what your career will be is a very important life choice. Working takes up a majority of your time during the week, so the way you feel about your work contributes to your overall well-being.
Are you occupationally well? Ask yourself…
- Am I doing what I need to do to enhance existing skills and acquire others?
- Am I taking advantage of the opportunities offered by my classes and school?
- Are my volunteer experiences fulfilling and beneficial in short and long term?
