Wellness describes overall health and wellbeing in terms of a balance between the body, mind and spirit. It is an individuals personal responsibility to set goals and make choices which aim at improving all aspects of a persons body, and not just the physical body. A persons quality of life will improve with better balance between body, mind and spirit and overall wellness can be achieved.
Wellness is not only a freedom from disease, or absence of illness. It is effected by good nutrition, weight control, exercise and by controlling risk factors such as smoking, drinking alcohol or drugs abuse.
The more healthier your being, the more productive you will be and the fewer absences you will have from work and the better you will feel emotionally.

Your physical health, relationships, family life, business life, financial position, in fact all aspects of who you are, and what you do will influence how well you feel at any time.
Self care is the responsibility to take charge of your daily life and set healthy lifestyle goals. It is your personal responsibility to manage your lifestyle to achieve optimum levels of health, including better social and emotional functioning.
