“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.
The word wellness as the dictionary defines it, “is a state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.” Or, in simple words, it is an active process of becoming aware of all the choices you make towards a happy and fulfilling life.
Wellness is not just physical health, but it encompasses physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional aspects of being; entire characterization of physical health, happiness, prosperity, and welfare covers the wide spectrum of wellness.
And, irrespective of all the milestones we set for ourselves in terms of career and physical wellbeing, wellness is a shared goal for all the people across the world. And each element of wellness, no matter how small, affects the overall-wellbeing of an individual.
