Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. It begins with a conscious decision to shape a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a mind set, a predisposition to adopt a series of key principles in varied life areas that lead to high levels of well-being and life satisfaction. Basically, the wellness model that people adhere to moves beyond that traditional notion of health and wellness as being the mere absence of disease, to the optional functioning of each individual regardless of current health status or disability. So, wellness exists on a continuum and is unique to each individual person. Each of us defines our own wellness. It's hard to say, you know, you're well or you're not well. That's not the way it works. It's a unique thing based on our individual circumstances. It's looking at the whole person and not just at your blood pressure level or how much you weigh, or how well you manage your stress.
