 What is Wellness

Aging is not a choice, but aging well is. Some people consider wellness the absence of disease-we will try to prove that wellness is not a destination, it is a process. Maintaining the balance between different areas of life-needs of physical body, mental body, emotional body and spiritual body are all part of wellness. Also, learn techniques to accept and love yourself no matter where you are in the process.
