Your Guide to Whole Wellness

According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, wellness is defined as, " the quality or state of being in good health especially as an actively sought goal-lifestyle that promotes wellness". In addition to that definition, "whole" is defined as, "restored, intact, physically sound and healthy, mentally or emotionally sound, having all its proper parts or components." Keeping those definitions in mind, the idea of Whole Wellness becomes a lifestyle of learning to live in a way that restores your body, mind, and spirit in order to keep you emotionally, mentally, and physically sound. In other words, focusing on your Whole Wellness means focusing on your best life.
