Most of us have heard the word ‘Wellness’ used in different contexts in recent years, but what does it actually mean…? Is it an emotion or a feeling…? Is it a place…? Is it something that can be found or achieved…?

The truth is that Wellness means different things to different people. Medically it is defined as: health & freedom from disease. But surely wellness can’t simply just be the absence of disease… Complementary Medicine defines it as: a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being.

In a nutshell Wellness is really about trying to achieve and maintain balance in one’s life. It is however important to realise that very few of us (if any) ever live a purely linear existence. Most of us live rather more dynamic and variable lives due to the fact that life by it’s very nature is changeable and unpredictable. As such our lives can from time to time be thrown off course, and/or out of balance. Often a ‘catalyst moment’ or situation outside of our control may unfold in our lives, which can act to pull us off course and into a state of disease. For some it may be physical e.g. (physical trauma, disease, etc.). For others it may be emotional e.g. (abuse, anxiety, depression, divorce, etc.), and for others still it may be spiritual e.g. (bereavement, losing faith, etc.). Often stress (mental, social, chemical, etc.) accounts for much of this imbalance. Whatever the cause, the end result is often the same… We become imbalanced and ultimately ‘ill health’ is allowed to slowly creep into our lives.
