Wellness is an active process of making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is broadly defined. There are similar components to each definition: Wellness is a choice, Wellness is proactive and Wellness is a continuous process.
Wellness is a lifelong journey. It is an active and intentional process of making choices and staying committed. Overall, wellness means being healthy in many dimensions of our lives. We all want to live a full and abundant life, but, it is not always easy. There are many aspects of life that we cannot control. Even though, we cannot control things, we can enhance our overall well being.
