Every aspect of your life — the place you live, the people you live with, your friends and acquaintances, the things you do or don’t do, the things you own, your work, even things like pets, music, and colour affect how you feel.

Wellness means overall well-being. It incorporates the different aspects of your life. Each aspect of wellness can affect overall quality of life, so it is important to consider all aspects of health (1).
These are some areas of your life you may want to develop further. If you are working with a clinician the Recovery Star is one tool that can assist with adressing these different areas.
