The “Self-Discovery” tool on the Holistic Wellness Portal allows a person to create and track their own wellness goals. Living in balance and harmony is an ongoing journey. After logging in, users can use the self-discovery tool to reflect on their own well-being.
The Niagara Holistic Wellness Initiative is a community partnership between Brock University, Niagara College and other Niagara Region professionals who are committed to supporting post-secondary students’ learning, health and well-being in a positive and holistic way. The resource is based on the Aboriginal medicine wheel and acts as a tool for students to focus on all parts of their health: body, mind, spirit and emotion.
A holistic approach to wellness recognizes a person’s body, mind, spirit and emotion are all interrelated and need to be continually brought into balance and harmony.
