Some might wonder, what is wellness?

Wellness means an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

Why does wellness matter?

Wellness matters to everyone. Our mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing effects all aspects of our daily lives and the lives of others. Wellness is about striving for a better quality life, being the healthiest and most productive version of you. Our daily wellness is important because it affects all of the actions we take. Being conscious about wellness helps us manage stress and enjoy positive relationships.
