The word #wellness is around everywhere right now. You see it on Facebook, Instagram, commercials, but what does it mean? Wellness is made up of all the different parts of our lives. Let's think of it like a wheel on a bicycle. You have a beautiful road ahead of you and you can't wait for the ride, but then you have a dent in your wheel. You can still get where you want to go, maybe, but it's much harder to do so.
When one area of our life is out of balance it is like having a flat tire or bent wheel our wheel doesn't spin easily, makes for a bumpy ride, maybe goes in a different direction or maybe won't turn at all. When our life is in balance our wellness wheel is round, spinning freely.
The World Health Organization describes Health as: Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
When our mind, body, and spirit are in order we are in a state of wellness or health.
Here are 8 areas connected to our wellness:
Each of these areas plays an important part in our overall wellness. While we can't always control some of the things we face we can control things like out attitude, our actions, and getting help when needed, all of which can help keep us more in balance.

The Institute is a leader in science-based health and wellness education that focuses on the four pillars of health; Lifestyle, Exercise, Attitude and Nutrition (L.E.A.N.). A certification by the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute is obtained only after completing the extensive course work and meeting all requirements.
