Campus Recreation and UMatter 7 Dimensions of Wellness

Wellness is not merely the absence of illness or distress – it is a lifelong process of making decisions to live a balanced and meaningful life. Princeton University Campus Recreation has adopted the 7 Dimensions of the UMatter Wellness Wheel for Students, Faculty, and Staff to guide our well-being efforts. Each of our program offerings will fall under one or more of these dimensions to help you find the ways to enhance your wellness that work for you. Think about how you have been doing and feeling over the past month, and choose the option below that best describes your recent experiences.

Intellectual: Engaging in creative and mentally-stimulating activities, expanding your knowledge and imparting knowledge to others.


Social: The quality of the relationships you have and how you interact with others.


Physical: Making choices to avoid harmful habits and practice actions that support your physical body, health, and safety.


Spiritual: Having values or beliefs that provide a sense of meaning and purpose to your life, and considering whether your actions align with your values.


Occupational: Finding fulfillment from your work and study, contributing meaningfully, and continuing to expand your skills and strengths.


Emotional: Understanding your own feelings and expressing emotions in a constructive way. It is also the ability to manage stress and cope with life's challenges.


Environmental: Considering the interactions between your environment, your community, and yourself. The environment includes not only the natural environment but also your social environment.


Princeton University has an extensive pool of talented individuals who have expertise in many different spokes of the UMatter Wellness Wheel.  If you’re interested in sharing your professional knowledge/experience in health and wellness with the campus community, please contact Matt Brzycki at brzycki@princeton.edu.
