Counseling, Health & Wellness at Aquinas College

Occupational Wellness

Occupational wellness is having the ability to achieve a balance between work and leisure time, addressing workplace stress and building relationships with co-workers. It focuses on our search for a calling and involves exploring various career opportunities and finding where one fits. What we do encompasses so much of our time, that it is vital that it bring joy and fulfillment to our lives. When we are doing what we love to do, it deepens our sense of meaning and purpose.

Ways to enhance this dimension:

  • Develop positive relationships with colleagues and supervisors
  • Develop a supportive network of peers and colleagues
  • Seek out learning opportunities to develop new skills
  • Utilize benefits, resources, and time off provided by your employer

Are you engaged in the process of Occupational Wellness?

  • Do I enjoy going to work most days?
  • Do I have a manageable workload at work?
  • Do I feel that I can talk to my boss and co-workers with problems arise?

If you answered "No" to any of the questions, it may indicate an area where you need to improve the state of your occupational wellness.
