What is wellness?

Well wellness means different things to different people, at different times, it is the balance of a number of things which can include spiritual aspects of life as well as the physical aspects.

Bringing these together bring about a feeling of completeness and being at ease with oneself and others. In other words to feel relaxed, refreshed, rejuvenated and at ease with the world.

The above diagram shows that the importance of the physical aspects of wellness perhaps through a walk, or climbing a mountain or swimming in a lake or via a gentle stroll can contribute to self contentment - wellness.

Environmental, this comes about more readily in the presence of a clean environment, water, air and in the totality of the setting. There is nothing finer than taking in a view from the top of a mountain taking in the freshness of the air to dispel any miseries that may lurk!

Mental in a modern society there are increasing demands on us all through work, studies, families. A wellness break allows a break from the routine a chance to unwind, read a book, relax, or to learn a new skill, or just to feel the comfort of your inner being.

Emotional life takes its toll, and it is important to reflect on achievements and losses, to put them into perspective, to learn from the experience and in some cases to forgive, but not to forget.

Social most of us have the need and instinct to mix, to chat and to enjoy the company of others. It gives an opportunity to put a perspective on life, and to enjoy the company of others.

Wellness can be described as the bringing together of these aspects, allowing time for yourself in a busy world, to unwind, to relax, and to be at ease.
