Wellness is a positive state of feeling good and functioning well that enables people to achieve their full potential, enjoy quality of life, and contribute positively to their community. Wellness is about being able to handle life´s ups and downs, finding meaning, and living our values - love, compassion, patience, tolerance, forgiveness, responsibility, harmony, and concern for others.
Wellness is a measure of a person´s mental and physical health, so wellness assessments take into account a number of factors that can affect health, such as relationships, exercise, nutrition and the safety of a person´s living situation. Holistic medicine addresses the entirety of a person´s lifestyle and attempts to uncover ways in which lifestyle, relationships, and environment contribute to medical issues. The mind and body are not discrete, separate entities, and physical health can affect emotional well-being. A person who gets inadequate nutrition may struggle more with psychological issues, and chronic stress can contribute to a number of physical health conditions.
Wellness is about eating healthy foods, being physically active, and avoiding tobacco and the harmful use of alcohol and other drugs. Wellness grows in communities that are safe and inclusive, and provide cultural, sport and recreational opportunities for people of all ages and abilities. Communities which promote wellness, encourage open debate and ensure that people have a voice in decisions that matter to them. It includes curiosity and life-long learning that begins in the home, and is nurtured in schools, workplaces and the community at large.
Most importantly, wellness is about the relationships we nurture with family, friends, co-workers, neighbours and others.
Wellness is a proactive, preventive approach designed to achieve optimum levels of health, social and emotional functioning. Wellness can also be defined as an active process through which you become aware of and make choices toward a more successful existence.
