Wellness is an approach to healthcare that emphasizes preventing illness and prolonging life, as opposed to emphasizing the treatment of a disease. Wellness it is a holistic concept that takes in to account the “whole person” and not just your vital signs or physical aspects of your health and recovery from breast cancer.
Your wellness begins with a conscious decision to create a healthy lifestyle that exists on a continuum unique to your individual situation, and is about you assuming responsibility for the quality of your life.
Wellness is a mind set, or a predisposition to focus on a variety of your life areas that lead to high levels of well-being and life satisfaction. Your wellness is not one thing; it is achieved by a combination of emotional, environmental, mental, physical, social, and spiritual health.
Keeping all these factors in mind, wellness then is an active process of becoming more aware of and making choices toward a more successful existence, and there are a variety of ways in which you can manage your wellness. You can begin by altering your lifestyle, changing your diet and exercise patterns or attending a wellness retreat.
Wellness retreats are designed to help you explore ways to balance your mind, body, emotions and spirit. Typically in this process, you directly experience the benefits of relaxation, rejuvenation and the development of new life skills you can utilize to achieve a greater sense of healthy living and optimal wellness.
