What is Wellness?

what is wellness

Wellness has become is bit of a buzzword over the past few years. In broad terms, wellness is good health. It’s an approach to living that emphasizes total wellness from a holistic point of view.

Being well and healthy involves more than just the absence of disease or symptoms of disease.

Wellness is a way of life.

By choosing a certain lifestyle, you strive to achieve your highest potential.

Wellness is an integration of body, mind and spirit.

It is the understanding that for every action, there is a reaction. For every thought there is a behaviour. This integration impacts all levels of health.

Wellness is dynamic.
We can view wellness as a continuum, from unwell to well.

Wellness is a process.

It will not happen overnight. You must embrace the journey and learn to enjoy each part of the adventure.

Wellness is a choice.

It is a decision that YOU make to move toward optimum health.

“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good”. You don’t need to have all the answers right away, or have it all figured out. Just start!! The rest will follow.
