What is Wellness?

Wellness is being aware of and making active choices towards living a life that is healthy, balanced and fulfilling.  Wellness is more than just physical health - it is a balance and integration of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being

"...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

The 6 Dimensions of Wellness

While we realize there are several wellness wheels with variations in categories, we have chosen to focus on the Wellness Wheel you see below, which highlights 6 areas. 

Learning about these 6 Dimensions of Wellness can help you choose how to make wellness a part of your everyday life. Wellness strategies are practical ways to start developing healthy habits that can have a positive impact on your physical and mental health.
