Wellness is an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more successful existence.

Wellness is a lifelong journey toward optimal health.

It is an ongoing process that involves personal time and commitment. Traditional wellness activities focus on basic physical fitness and nutrition. A person is considered well if they are free of illness or disease.

While physical wellness is important, it is only one of eight dimensions of wellness. When one dimension is strong, it strengthens and positively affects the other dimensions.
