Health domains

In order to assess how healthy you are across all aspects of health, we first of all break overall health down into a number of categories or domains.

You can read more about how we’ve done this on our Domains page.

Here we have a questionnaire covering all these domains, so you can quickly assess how healthy or well you are in each area. 

Welcome to your Wellness Domains Questionnaire.

The purpose of this questionnaire is to assess how your health (or wellness or wellbeing) is across a number of different dimensions or domains.  There has been a lot of scientific study on wellness or wellbeing over the last ten years. It shows that it is influenced by many variables, e.g. being physically healthy, having a good job, having positive relationships, having good living standards, etc. The list goes on. Some of these things are physical, some financial, and some mental. Some are within our direct control, others aren't.

In order to work out which areas of our wellbeing we should focus on, we define a number of different areas or domains or dimensions that we can work on. If you type 'dimensions of wellbeing' into Google you will find many definitions of the dimensions of wellbeing, and they split into 6, 7, 8 or 10 different dimensions. The reason for using different domains is to find areas we can work on and improve, before things get too bad and require a more serious intervention.

We have used 8 different domains of wellbeing or health, and this questionnaire has six questions in each area. For each question, mark the score that applies to you. There are no right or wrong answers, and the objective is to see how you feel in each area.

Click 'Next' below to start the questionnaire and to move between sections, and at the end to Submit and get your scores, which you might want to make a note of.

We break down the overall concept of health or wellness into ‘bite-sized chunks’ that we can actually do something about.  The first level we call health domains.

We like the Life of Wellness site and we have chosen the following domains.

1. Emotional Wellness: Awareness and acceptance of feelings
2. Spiritual Wellness: A search for meaning and purpose
3. Intellectual Wellness: Recognition of your creativity, knowledge and skills
4. Physical Wellness: Need for physical activity and balanced nutrition
5. Environmental Wellness: Positive awareness and impact on your environment
6. Financial Wellness: Debt reduction, cash flow balance or financial future planning
7. Occupational Wellness: Personal achievement and enrichment from your career
8. Social Wellness: Contribution to your community

Health Areas

Within each domain, we have included a number of health areas. These are specific issues that you can tackle.  Within each health area, e.g. Depression, once you have subscribed we have built additional information and exercises which you can do to help in the area.
