♥ What is Wellness?

The underlying concept of wellness is that it is holistic — wellness involves all aspects of a person, and their life, in relation to others and their lives, in their broadest social and physical environment, in relation to the world and ultimately, to God.

"Wellness means overall well-being. It incorporates the mental, emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of a person’s life. Each aspect of wellness can affect overall quality of life, so it is important to consider all aspects of health. (2008) 10 x 10 Wellness Campaign"

♥ Everyone Can Live Well!

Don't be misled–wellbeing IS attainable for anyone, regardless of current or longstanding physical or mental illness, disability, or other perceived limitation. Wellbeing is about being who God created you to be, and living well.

"Wellness incorporates many dimensions of health. Dr. Sarah R. Linde-Freucht of the US Department of Health and Human Services stated that 'health relates broadly to how an individual functions in one’s life, the quality of one’s relationships, and how one adapts to change and copes with difficulties.' (2008) 10 x 10 Wellness Campaign"
