Question and answer
Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility for the quality of your life. Define 3 areas of wellness and/or general thoughts defining wellness. Provide some explanation of each
area or thought as to how it relates to human wellness.
How do you define wellness? We continually hear this word during the news, in conversations, at work or read it in newspapers, magazines and the like. Surprisingly, there’s no definition of wellness that seems to be universally accepted. [ Nonetheless there is a set of general characteristics found in most good attempts at define wellness. We routinely see a references made to wellness being a
“state of well-being,” which is very vague. We also routinely see wellness defined as a “state of acceptance or satisfaction with our present condition.” Truth be told, wellness is a very tough difficult word to define. Personally I like what Charles B. Corbin from Arizona State University has to say. He defines wellness as a “multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of well-being.” Wellness is considered to be an active process of becoming aware of and learning to make choices (healthy choices) that lead toward a longer and more successful existence. We use the word “process” to note that further improvement is always possible We use the word “aware” to note that we are continuously seeking more knowledge about how we can improve. We use the word “choices” to note that we consider many options and choose those in our best interest. What is Wellness? What is wellness? - Definition of wellnessWellness and good health have historically been seen a freedom from disease; thus, if you weren’t sick, then you were considered healthy. This historical perspective on wellness is changing. While virtually everyone agrees that absence from illness is a primary component of being healthy, it doesn’t however indicate anything about your state of well-being. As a state of health, wellness is closely linked to your lifestyle and the choices you make. Each individual has a responsibility to themselves to provide for the essentials of good health – that being proper weight control, good nutrition, physical activity and exercise, and controlling of health risk factors such as tobacco use, alcohol and drug use and/or abuse. ]
