Wellness goes beyond a lack of physical illness. It often means thriving holistically and living a wellrounded life, and so people engage in diverse activities to help themselves feel and become well. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines wellness as:
“…the optimal state of health of individuals and groups. There are two focal concerns: the
realization of the fullest potential of an individual physically, psychologically, socially,
spiritually, and economically, and the fulfillment of one’s role expectations in the family,
community, place of worship, workplace and other settings.” (WHO 2006).
