Wellness is a multidimensional state of being that describes the process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a more positive existence. In order to be well it takes much more than nutrition and physical activity. True wellness is a full integration of all of the following states of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, occupational, environmental, social, and spiritual. Each one of these dimensions interacts in a way that influences our own quality of life.
