Wellness is the sense of total physical and mental well-being. This does not mean that you will be ecstatically happy everyday and not feel any stress, but that when the bumps in the road of life present themselves, you are prepared to handle them. Wellness lies in the person having a personal definition of wellness. It is a holistic, individual, strength-based, or positive approach to mental health. It can include body, mind, and spirit wellness as well as looking outside of the individual at the workplace, environment, and community.
As each person is unique, their path to their own mental wellness will be also. Some may find an enhanced level of mental health while playing a musical instrument or listening to music, while another may find that the absence of sound is more suitable to them. While some people love the excitement of the city, others crave to be one with nature. The best part about finding your own path to wellness—is you can never be wrong! It is all part of your personal journey, your life script. You are the author.
