What is Wellness?

Wellness according to "\ˈwel-nəs\ n. the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal"

Often you may think the concept of wellness only applies to the physical being, but I believe there are multiple dimensions to complete wellness.

  • Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards living a more healthy and fulfilling life.
  • It is a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life.
  • Wellness is an alternative to dependency on doctors and drugs, to complacency, to mediocrity and to self-pity, boredom and slothfulness.
Let's look at the things that make up complete wellness:

  • Mental - emotional and intellectual development
  • Physical - the health of your body
  • Financial - stewardship of your resources
  • Spiritual - connection with God
  • Career - fulfilling and purposeful work
  • Social - ease in social situations
  • Family - harmony in your home
