Wellness is an active, lifelong process of becoming aware of choices and making decisions toward a more balanced and fulfilling life. Many factors can influence your health and well-being, in fact there are 7 different, interacting dimensions of health and wellness. Wellness is all about maintaining a balance between the many different aspects of your life.

Everyone's optimal wellness will be different, depending on your own needs, experiences, personality, and circumstances. As we make our way through life, different aspects will fall in and out of balance - it's our job to try and maintain as much of a balance as possible.
