What is Wellness?
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. It is a dynamic process of change and growth.
"...a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
- The World Health Organization
"a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential."
- The National Wellness Institute
Maintaining the ideal level of wellness is crucial to live the best quality of life possible. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. Our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
Focusing on wellness in our lives builds resilience and enables us to succeed amidst life’s challenges.
