Wellness and Health
Wellness and health go hand in hand and both are reciprocal. Quite often both the terms are used interchangeably but there is a slight difference in meaning. ‘Health’ is more of a medical term and is just a mental or physical state, whereas ‘Wellness’ is an overall process of maintaining a state of wellbeing.
- Health as a state of being free from illness or injury
- Wellness as the state of being in good physical and mental health.
“The World Health Organization renders, ‘Wellness’ as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
Why everyone is concerned in achieving wellness? Answer is quite straight forward and simple; we all want to attain best quality life till we lives and rightly so. Each and every living being deserves a good quality life, which is directly proportional to wellness. Wellness is not the same for everyone, as diverse factors play role in being well. Wellness is how one feels about life and how effectively one is able to function. It won’t be wrong to say that wellness depend on an individual’s effort, whereas health is a condition of that person.
