What is the Wellness Skill?

The Wellness Skill can be gained through doing a variety of activities such as mediating, yoga, and giving massages. Spa Day also included multiple new items that you can use to enhance your wellness skill.

There are three main ways to gain your wellness skill, yoga, mediation, and massages.


Your sim will need a yoga mat or an instructor's yoga mat (if they plan on leading yoga classes) in order to practice yoga. You can find a variety of four different yoga mats under Activities & Skills in the buy menu. If you want to teach yoga classes you will need an instructor's mat over the regular yoga mats.

As your wellness skill advances you will unlock a variety of new poses and new routines. You can use these routines to unlock different moodlets. Below you can see what poses you unlock at each level of the wellness skill.

Skill LevelYoga Pose
2Boat Pose
4Tree Pose
5Warrior Pose
6Lord of the Dance Pose
7Bridge Pose

In addition to advancing your wellness skill, yoga is the best workout your sim can do. Unlike regular exercise, yoga will simultaneously make your sim lose body fat and gain muscle. I laid out exactly how body fat and muscle work in the Sims 4 in this article.


Meditating is another great way to increase your sim's wellness skill and help focus your sim to complete other tasks in their daily lives. You will need a meditation stool to get started. Once you reach level five of the wellness skill you have a chance of levitating while you meditate. Eventually once you reach level seven of the wellness skill you can teleport.

You can also choose to lead guided meditations to earn some money. Once you get to level two of the wellness skill you will have the ability to host guided meditations. You can choose to either "Host" guided meditation or "lead" guided mediation. If you want to earn money you will want to choose to Host Guided Meditation, you will earn money per participant. You can choose to promote your guided meditation session online if you want to try and get a full house.


Lastly, you can give massages to increase your wellness skill. All you need is a massage table or massage chair to get started. So long as a massage table or massage chair is on the lot you can offer to give other sims on that lot a variety of massages. As you increase your wellness skill more types of massages will be available to you and each also increasing in the amount you can earn.
