The occupational dimension recognizes personal satisfaction and enrichment in one’s life through work. At the center of occupational wellness is the premise that occupational development is related to one’s attitude about one’s work. Traveling a path toward your occupational wellness, you will contribute your unique gifts, skills, and talents to work that are both personally meaningful and rewarding. You will convey your values through your involvement in activities that are gratifying for you. The choice of profession, job satisfaction, career ambitions, and personal performance are all important components of your path’s terrain. Occupational wellness follows these tenets:

- It is better to develop functional, transferable skills through structured involvement opportunities than to remain inactive and uninvolved.
