WHAT IS WELLNESS?
Wellness is the opposite of illness. It is a feeling of
total well-being. It involves choosing to follow a
healthy lifestyle and protecting your health.

Wellness is a lifelong quest for total lifestyle
balance in 5 main areas of life: physical, emotional,
spiritual, intellectual and social. When balanced, all
of these factors can contribute to a feeling of total
well-being. For more information click to the next

ACHIEVING HIGH-LEVEL
     WELLNESS
   Achieving lifestyle balance is not just
             about fitness!

  Here are some additional steps that you
can take to follow a healthier lifestyle and
     to achieve high-level wellness:
 THE ROLE OF EXERCISE:
Time pressures,
frustrations, anger,
anxieties and other
work pressures can all
take their toll on your
mind and body.

When the pressure is
on, don’t allow the
stress to build up and
spoil your day. Just
take some exercise!
  EMOTIONAL WELLNESS:
Having a positive
mental state is directly
linked to high-level
wellness.

Maintaining emotional
stability is part of this
dimension, as well as
coping with stress,
staying balanced and
enjoying life.
      SPIRITUAL FITNESS:
This involves the
development of the
inner–self and one’s
spirit.

To feed the spiritual
part of your body you
need to occasionally
take time out, to relax,
to reflect and to identify
the true sources of joy
in your life.
 INTELLECTUAL FITNESS:
Involves the use of your
mind. Maintaining an
active mind contributes
to total well-being.

Continuous learning,
creative and stimulating
mental activities are
essential throughout
life.
         SOCIAL FITNESS:
Good friends, close
family ties and trusting
relationships are all
part of high-level
wellness.

So try to balance work
and home so that you
can build such
relationships.
 TOTAL WELLNESS:
Is a combination of all of these dimensions.
Neglecting any dimension weakens the balance
that leads to high-level wellness.

Through working to improve each area and
following healthy lifestyle choices, you will be
working towards total wellness and a higher
quality of life.
