Wellness Paradigm

WHAT IS Wellness?

Better Living refers to the overall sense of well-being that accompanies optimal health. Health is the state of complete physical, mental, and social well- being not merely the absence of disease (WHO). Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. It begins with a conscious decision to shape a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a mindset, a predisposition to adopt a series of key principles in varied life areas that lead to high levels of well-being and life satisfaction.

Wellness is an alternative to dependency on doctors and drugs, to complacency, to mediocrity and to self-pity, boredom and slothfulness. The areas which are most closely affected by your wellness commitments include self-responsibility, exercise and fitness, nutrition, stress management, critical thinking, meaning and purpose in life, spirituality, emotional intelligence, humor and play, and effective relationships.
