What is Wellness?

What is the definition of wellness?  We hear this word used everywhere today, in all sorts of context.  It seems to be one of those popular “buzz words of the day” that everyone uses, but no one really understands.

Interestingly, there is no universally-accepted definition of wellness, and the truth is that wellness is a tough word to define.

I found this definition recently and I believe it does a pretty good job.  What do you think?

“Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence.”

Process means that improvement is always possible,

Aware means that we are continuously seeking more information about how we can improve,

Choices means that we consider a variety of options and select those in our best interest,

Success is determined by each individual to be their collection of life accomplishments.
