A DEFINITION OF WELLNESS
A Zen Spirit is about spiritual and emotional wellness. But, how do you define wellness? Is it simply good health, feeling well, or is it well-being? I believe as we evolve so does our definition of wellness.
How I define wellness-
Do you achieve wellness through nutrition? Yes. But, I also believe you achieve wellness by nourishing your soul. I have faith that most of us choose to live our best lives and that represents wellness to me.
The term wellness has changed over time, to encompass the mind, body, and soul. With the original term focusing solely on the health of the mind and body. It now reaches beyond our physical self to enriching our lives through gratitude and positive actions. As you choose to enrich your lives through contentment, empathy, love, and kindness, you are also achieving wellness.
Is wellness a state of mind or a state of the body? Both,
Can you have wellness if your body is ill? Yes, I am proof of that.
I believe you find wellness through prayer, gratitude, love, diet, exercise, meditation, paying it forward, acts of kindness, and selflessness. By living a life you are proud of, you will achieve “all-inclusive” wellness.
