What is Wellness?

21 August 2015

Wellness can be defined as being in good physical and mental health.

In order to be well, we must be as physically healthy as possible, as well as emotionally comfortable. In the world of wellness, these two states of being are so interconnected that being and staying well requires sound, daily routines that support both of them. This means a healthy diet, a fitness regimen, and a personal toolkit for dealing with life’s emotional challenges.

Wellness also refers to the ability to turn healthy decisions into healthy habits that eventually become completely integrated with our lives. Americans who take good care of themselves have proven to be happier, more productive, have lower work absenteeism and much lower healthcare costs.

So it is safe to say that Wellness refers to a personal state of being healthy, happy, and productive!
