Question and answer
Q: How are the terms health and wellness similar? What, if any, are important distinctions between these terms? What health promotion? disease prevention
A: Wellness is the state of being healthy and disease-free.DEFINITIONS OF HEALTH & WELLNESS Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. [ It begins with a conscious decision to shape a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a mind set, a predisposition to adopt a series of key principles in varied life areas that lead to high levels of well-being and
life satisfaction. A consequence of this focus is that a wellness mind set will protect you against temptations to blame someone else, make excuses, shirk accountability, whine or wet your pants in the face of adversity. (I threw that in to help you remember this explanation.) - Don Ardell, Ph.D., Living Well Center, University at Buffalo What is wellness? It's a word that's used a lot these days, and I'm sure you hear it all the time. It's a buzz word almost, and traditionally, health and wellness have been thought of as the mere absence of disease and disability. This is known as the medical model, and the problem with it is that it promotes the idea that one cannot be well while living with a disability. In recent years there has been new thinking in this area and it has led to the development of newer models of health and there are numerous different models. Basically, the wellness model that people adhere to today moves beyond that traditional notion of health and wellness as being the mere absence of disease to the optional functioning of each individual regardless of current health status or disability. So, wellness exists on a continuum and is unique to each individual person. Each of us defines our own wellness. It's hard to say, you know, you're well or you're not well. That's not the way it works. It's a unique thing based on our individual circumstances. And wellness in this view is also seen as a holistic concept. It's looking at the whole person and not just at your blood pressure level or how much you weigh, or how well you manage your stress. It's not one thing; it's all of these things connected. ]
