The Quality or state of being healthy in body, and mind, especially

as the result of deliberate effort.

An approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness

and prolonging life as opposed to emphasizing treating diseases.

The condition of good physical, mental and emotional health,

especially when maintained by an appropriate diet, exercise, and other

lifestyle modifications.

These were the definitions I found when I first began my search to define wellness. I felt the answers were too vague and needed to search for a better and more complete explanation. I stumbled on to a website that offered a ton of information on various platforms that

promote their model of whole-person wellness. The website is “The

National Wellness Institute. Dr. Bill Hettler is the co-founder and developer of “The Six Dimensions of Wellness,”which promotes

addressing emotional, occupational, physical, social, intellectual,

and spiritual all must be considered when we begin the process

of learning to make better choices towards a more successful

existence. They offer tools that you can download so that you

can get some kind of idea off where you stand in your whole-person wellness. They offer memberships of various types, so that you

can select one that best fits your needs and budget. Joining in as a member entitles you to gain access to webinars, you can earn

continuing education credits, stay current with the best practices,

utilize their resources, receive all their publications, they offer

various courses in which you will earn a certificate, they have a career

center where they post job openings. I recommend that you

check this website out for yourself.
