What is Wellness?
Wellness is the process of learning about and then making choices to create a healthier lifestyle. It is not necessarily the absence of disease. It is the process of attaining the highest quality of life possible. Wellness is multi-dimensional and holistic. It incorporates all aspects of our lives: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Good nutrition, regular exercise, stress management, and a sense of self-worth are all elements of a wellness perspective.
Yet wellness is not a goal to be achieved. It is a lifelong process. We are always changing, cycling in and out of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. We must constantly make choices that foster our well-being. And no two people will make the same choices.
To inform you of these choices, the chapter offers the following:
- Outdoor adventures and exercise classes in adaptive yoga, tai chi, karate, Feldenkrais, aquatics, and more!
- Educational programs
