Vocational Wellness

Yourself, Understood

Vocational Wellness

Vocational Wellness is the ability to achieve personal satisfaction and fulfillment from our work, maintain balance in our lives and make a positive impact within the organizations where we work and the communities where we live.

Vocational wellness is subjective - it's based on your feelings or opinions. It is about your perception, attitude, outlook and reaction to the work you take part in. Ambition, desire for satisfaction and yearning for advancement vary from person to person; each person is on their own path with their own set of vocational wellness goals.

A vocationally well person selects an occupation that utilizes their gifts, strengths and skills and aligns with their interests and values. A vocationally well person strives to balance work and non-work obligations and activities, including learning how to say "no" to maintain that balance.

Some of the things I suggest, and help you do, to improve your emotional wellness are:
  • Do what you really want to do
  • Make career or job choices, for what's possible, you are happy with
  • Create your own way to look forward to work, by finding what's worth in every activity you engage in
  • Find a job, or create one, that gives you personal satisfaction and stimulation.
  • Engage in activities that allow you to make a difference in the world.
  • Keep a positive work-life balance
  • Find way to feel yourself valued and engaged in your activities
  • Reward yourself for your success
  • Explore different career and/or volunteer opportunities that arise
  • Keep an open mind
  • Participate in internships or research opportunities
  • Take advantage of career service resources
  • Foster your entrepreneurial mindset
  • Prepare for and participate in work that provides personal satisfaction and life enrichment that is consistent with your values, goals, and lifestyle
  • Contribute your unique gifts, skills, and talents to work that is personally meaningful and rewarding

Both in your personal life and at your business, I can help you setup the correct steps in your career, both working for others or for yourself.
