Physical health is important, but it is only one component of overall well-being. Therefore, the Center for Health is working to improve five inter-related dimensions of health and well-being: physical, emotional, spiritual, social and financial. Each dimension impacts our ability to thrive and our vitality in mission and ministry. The health and well-being of those who serve the Church also affects the whole United Methodist connection—family, congregation, community and the broader Church itself.
Although many are healthier in some areas than others, Center for Health research suggests that improving health in one dimension can have a positive effect on other dimensions as well. Get started by setting goals to improve one or two dimensions of health, adding goals for other dimensions over time.
