Wellness… it’s more than diet and exercise!
Wellness is an interactive process of becoming aware of and practicing healthy choices to create a more successful and balanced lifestyle.
- Striving for a balanced lifestyle is an integrated living pattern that involves several dimensions: physical, social, environmental, occupational, spiritual, intellectual and emotional (see model). The process of achieving wellbeing is constant and dynamic.
- Aware means that you are by nature continuously seeking more information about how you can improve.
- Choices mean that you have considered a variety of options and selected those that seem to be in your best interest.
- Success is determined by you to be your personal collection of accomplishments for your life.
