You’ve probably heard the word wellness being used as it’s become quite fashionable lately, but do you really know what it means and how it relates to your health? There really is no one set definition for what wellness actually is, but it encompasses many things. It’s about making the right life choices to ensure that both your body and your mind remain well. A healthy body and a happy mind are the goals of anyone looking to pursue wellness, and of course, they are goals that all of us would love to achieve.
Health and wellness are directly connected
While good health generally refers to our physical condition, wellness covers a greater scope including our mental health and our overall feeling of well being. Wellness focuses on our emotional health as much as it does the good health of our bodies and this is important.
While you focus on curing or preventing ailments, or keeping your body fit and healthy, we can often neglect the emotional side of things. Your health will certainly improve if your mind is positive and you are not stressed. Stress has been linked to many major illnesses and heart attacks and strokes. Being emotionally well will go a long way towards speeding up recovery from an illness or an operation.
All round health is so important
So you can see how looking after your health is about more than simply taking the right pills, eating the right diet or getting plenty of exercise, and wellness brings in those extra aspects of all round health that we need to be aware of.
