Full program description
What is health and wellness?
Some people use the terms “health” and “well-being” interchangeably. But the definition of each term has a different meaning. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. So, health goes beyond the absence of disease.
Well-being, on the other hand, is a personal decision to make changes toward a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. A person’s devotion to wellness centers around enhancing their complete well-being. This holistic view of well-being includes the optimal health of the body, mind and spirit.
