Abstract

Wellness is generally perceived as the absence of illness or disease, and is mostly referred to as being healthy and physically fit. But in reality, wellness encompasses holistic development of individuals in other spheres of life also, like being intellectually mature, socially sound, environmentally conscious, emotionally balanced and spiritually insightful. In spite of major changes in today’s life style and changing eco system, the search for a balanced and optimal life continues. To help accomplish this, a catalyst role is played by different social institutions including Higher Education Institutions (HEI). In recent times there has been a lot of emphasis on balanced wellness among the work force for effective productivity. The present study on “Wellness Among Teaching Faculty Members in a Higher Education Institution”, aimed at finding the competence of the Teaching Faculty in the seven dimensions of Physical Wellness, Social Wellness, Emotional Wellness, Spiritual Wellness, Intellectual Wellness, Environmental Wellness and Occupational Wellness. 198 Teaching Faculty participated in the study. The study reveals that out of 198 faculty, 16% have a high level of Overall Wellness, 67% have moderate level of Overall Wellness and 17% have low level of Overall Wellness. A significant difference was found between Occupational Wellness and Marital Status (P value = .029). There was also a significant difference between Emotional Wellness and Academic Stream (Aided and Self Financed - P value = 0.024). All the 21 correlations were positive and significant at the 0.01 level and a strong correlation (r=.606) was found between Occupational Wellness and Emotional Wellness.
