Health and Wellness



Health means different things to different people, depending on the situation. World Health Organization (WHO) state that “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” In fact,
most people, when asked for a definition of health talk about physical health.


Some people agree that mental and physical
health includes the ability to enjoy life, to bounce back from adversity, the ability to achieve
balance, the ability to be flexible, to feel safe, secure, and making the best of what you have.

According to WHO, mental health is “a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and successfully able to make a contribution to his or her community”.



Wellness matters
because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being.


When it comes to the foods we eat, consumers are going back to the basics. The most desirable attributes are foods that are fresh, natural and minimally processed.


The term wellness was first used by a doctor called Halbert L. Dunn, USA, who published a small booklet entitled “High Level Wellness” in 1961. The term is much more widely used in North America than in the United Kingdom.

Wellness “is maximising an individual’s potential. This is a life-long process towards enhancing your physical, intellectual, emotional, social, spiritual, and environmental well-being.”

I need your help, Luke. She needs your help. I’m getting too old for this sort of thing. Red Five standing by. Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed. The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of the Force. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands. The plans you refer to will soon be back in our hands.


Optimal wellness allows us to achieve our goals and find meaning and purpose in our lives. Overall, wellness is the ability to live life to the fullest and to maximise personal potential in a variety of ways. When we balance the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, occupational, spiritual, and environmental aspects of life, we achieve true wellness.”

Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve best possible wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions. Some people say that there are eight dimensions of wellness: occupational, emotional, spiritual, environmental, financial, physical, social, and intellectual. Each dimension of wellness is interrelated with another and is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health. One can reach an optimal level of wellness by understanding how to maintain and optimise each of the dimensions of wellness.

The key to a healthy living is to
Eat the right amount of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use.
