What is Wellness?

“In 2006, the World Health Organization in “WHO Health Promotion Glossary, New Terms” stated, ‘Wellness’ in the optimal state of health of individuals and groups, involving not only the realization of the fullest potential of an individual physically, psychologically, socially, spiritually and economically, but also the fulfillment of one’s role expectations in the family, community, place of worship, workplace and other settings.”

“In 1948, the WHO defined health as, “A state of complete physical, emotional, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

According to Patricia J. Sulak, MD, in her book Should I Fire My Doctor?, there are eleven elements to Wellness.  The Essential Elements of “Living Well Aware” include
