Wellness: Glossary

In our culture, we commonly think of ourselves as being “sick” or “healthy.” Generally, we define “sick” as having some sort of signs or symptoms of a disease (pain, swelling, fever, loss of function). We then tend to define health as simply being the absence of these signs and symptoms.

The concept of “wellness” recognizes that this is an inadequate way of looking at things. Wellness looks at the positive dimensions—a person moving toward wellness is gaining strength, reserve capacity, feels joy in life. Wellness indicates not only the presence of health, but also the ability to withstand the stresses that might otherwise lead to illness.
