What surrounds you each day in your home, work, or neighbourhood and the resources available to you can affect your personal wellness. You can’t always choose what’s in the environments you live, work, or play in. But taking small steps to make your environments safer and limiting your exposure to potentially harmful substances can help keep you healthier.

What Is Environmental Wellness?

Environmental wellness refers to your sense of safety, comfort, and connection with your physical surroundings. It involves considering the interactions between your environment, your community, and yourself.

Environmental wellness can be enhanced by living more in harmony with the planet and your community. Wellness in this domain begins in your immediate surroundings. Your personal space has a direct impact on your state of mind, emotional well-being, and productivity. Environmental wellness also extends beyond your personal space to larger communities, geographic areas, and the planet.
