Wellness involves the awareness of our current state of health in multiple dimensions with the initiative, tools and support to make lasting changes towards a more optimal life. Wellness is the pursuit of your best possible health and well-being. It is an overall balance of your physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, environmental, and occupational well-being. Health is a goal one can achieve while wellness is a dynamic concept that continues for a lifetime.
