General Wellness

The term Wellness has been applied in many ways and is much more than merely physical health, exercise or nutrition. It requires some level of consciousness and an active self-process of achieving a person’s health and wellbeing potential.

Some models of wellness integrate six or seven aspects, including social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, occupational, intellectual and physical wellness.

Whatever definition you apply; wellness involves a personal perception of general wellness. In health terms we often score our wellness from 1-10, with 1 being worst ever and 10 being best ever score of wellness. These subjective scores vary from person to person as our perception of wellness differs widely, and from chronic to acute patients. Our wellness might be summed up when a Doctor asks us “How are you feeling today on a scale of 1-10?”
