WHAT IS WELLNESS?
The National Wellness Institute defines wellness as an active process through which people become aware of, and make choices toward, a more healthy and successful existence.
- Wellness is a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.
- Wellness is multidimensional and holistic, encompassing lifestyle, mental and spiritual well-being, and the environment.
- Wellness is positive and affirming.
- Applying wellness to daily life includes: regular physical activity, healthy eating habits, developing positive sense of self, as well as personal responsibility and self-care, seeking medical attention when needed.
In 1976, Dr. Bill Hettler, co-founder of the National Wellness Institute (NWI), developed an interdependent model for the Six Dimensions of Wellness. This provides the categories from which NWI derives its resources and services. With this information as our guide, we have formed a wellness wheel of our own and are proud to offer a one stop shop for wellness. Our mission has been and always will be the same; to provide a welcoming, motivating and family friendly environment in which everyone can achieve a lifestyle of wellness.
