WHAT IS WELLNESS?

Defining Wellness

To understand the significance of wellness, it’s important to understand how it’s linked to health. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), health is defined as.. being “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

The Global Wellness Institute defines wellness as the active pursuit of activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to a state of holistic health.

 Wellness is an individual pursuit—we have self-responsibility for our own choices, behaviors, and lifestyles—but it is also significantly influenced by the physical, social, and cultural environments we live in.

Wellness is a series of positive daily choices you make to live your life to the fullest!  My mission is to support you to make the right daily choices for your wellness. I do this through coaching, counseling where needed, speaking publicly, and my writings.

Wellness is a modern word with ancient roots. The fundamental tenets of wellness as preventive and holistic can be traced back to ancient civilizations from India, China, Greece, and Rome. 

As conventional medicine developed, various intellectual, religious, and medical movements also appeared. However, with their focus on holistic and natural approaches, self-healing and preventive care, these movements have provided a firm foundation for wellness practices.

Wellness-focused and holistic interventions have gained more visibility in the last fifty years. Wellness is about healthy living, self-help, self-care, fitness, nutrition, diet and spiritual practices, environmental and social interaction that have evolved into a flourishing wellness movement today.

The idea of wellness is broadly defined, but there are several similar components to each definition.

Wellness is something that you desire and choose to pursue. It’s a choice you make in life that requires constant effort to achieve.

While associated with a healthy lifestyle, wellness goes beyond the confines of general health. It encompasses a positive outlook on your mind, body, and soul and is something we often have more control over than health.

Wellness has various dimensions and can be viewed as a quality, state, or process.

At face value, the idea of wellness may appear complex- but it need not be.
