4 Key Principles of Wellness
- Wellness is defined as the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as a result of deliberate effort.
- Wellness is a multifaceted, holistic approach to health and encompasses both physical and emotional well-being. Problems in one area can impact the other, as can improvements.
- Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental well-being, so that you're thriving, not just surviving.
- Wellness emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life. To make this happen the individual needs to take a proactive approach. Improvements are not going to happen on their own. This means you are an active participant.
