30 Wellness, a positive approach to life and health, maximizes the individual's potential. It involves the “whole” person - physically, emotionally, and on a psychological basis. A personal wellness lifestyle is associated with good physical health, emotional stability, and improved personal relationships.

31  Wellness is a process, not a static state of being.  You do not just get well or stay well.  There are many degrees or levels of wellness, just as there are degrees of illness.  One can always be moving towards better health, no matter how well you are.

32  Wellness is not the absence of disease.  You can be at a neutral point, without discernible illness, yet still feel tired, run down, bored, depressed, tense, anxious or even not in control of your life….

33 Shows that health can be measured on a sliding scale, with many degrees of health and wellness. This continuum spans the complete spectrum of health from chronic disease and premature death to a high level of health. Since health is not constant, think of your health at any moment as a point along the continuum. Changes can occur suddenly.

34  Traditional medicine simply works with the signs and symptoms of disease.  The Wellness Continuum extends the definition of health to encompass a process of awareness, education and growth, which is based on self-responsibility.  Wellness is the integration of body, mind and spirit-all that you do, think and feel impacts your state of health.

35  Prevention: practicing health and safety habits to remain free of disease and injury  AWARNESS: How are you living your life? How could you pro-actively improve or change it?  EDUCATION: What are your options? Looking within? Receiving from others  GROWTH: Trying out those options, then reevaluating by going back to step one-back to awareness
