What is Wellness?
Definition of Wellness
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
"...a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."
- The World Health Organization.
"a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential."
- The National Wellness Institute
Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
