What is Wellness?

Wellness is an active process through which...

  • You recognize and accept responsibility for yourself and your well-being.
  • You become aware of and make choices toward a more successful existence.
  • Your choices are greatly influenced by your self-concept, culture, and environment.
  • You create a unique lifestyle that changes daily in the reflection of your spiritual, emotional, physical, social, intellectual, and occupational dimensions of life.
