There are nine unique dimensions that contribute to our well-being, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA). To help veterinary professionals improve each of these dimensions, the association has created a new guide: “100 Healthy Tips to Support a Culture of Well-being.”

In the guide, the AVMA offers a plethora of strategies to use both at work and at home to support a healthy lifestyle and work environment.

Below are some practical steps you should consider whenever you feel that yourself or your employees are lacking in one of the nine dimensions.
 

Creative Well-being

Do you value and participate in a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences?

At Work: Put a keyboard or guitar in the break room.
At Home: Take an art class at your local library or community center.
 

Emotional Well-being

Can you identify, express and manage an entire range of emotions?

At Work: Allow for time off to see mental health professionals and make medical appointments.
At Home: Make a list of people or things that restore your energy and those that deplete your energy. Be discerning about what can stay and what must go—and then actually let them go.
 

Environmental Well-being

Do you recognize the responsibility to preserve, protect and improve the environment?

At Work: Provide an area for employees to eat lunch outdoors. Conduct meetings outside or go for walks as a team. Take fresh air breaks.
At Home: Challenge yourself to purchase food within a 50-mile radius.
