Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy. balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of . well-being.

The term has been defined as. an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence. In other words, wellness. is a view of health that emphasizes the state of the entire being and its ongoing development.

This is different from an emphasis on health which assumes that just lack of disease, good genes, and not feeling bad is healthy. After all, sometimes we feel awful and the body is actually doing the right thing for us, like in the case of food poisoning. And in some cases we may have a serious disease process going on, and in fact, we feel just fine!

Wellness is the “the constant, conscious pursuit of living life to its fullest potential.”
