Wellness and Wellness Testing
The simplest definition for wellness is “the state of being in good health.”
But wellness means more than simply “not being sick.” It means taking steps to live better: eat healthier, getting the proper amount of exercise, and doing things that are good for our bodies, our minds, and the world around us.
Wellness is multidimensional, just as human beings are multidimensional.
Consider the Wellness Wheel on this page. It contains physical and mental wellness, while also recognizing that wellness includes how we maintain our relationships, our finances, our careers and our environment.
A wellness-centered lifestyle encourages you to adopt behaviors that promote improved health and quality of life. It means recognizing that the wheel we described here is like any other wheel: it can only keep turning with proper care and maintenance.
Think of a wellness test as a road map on your journey to a healthier life.
A wellness test can:
- Assess your overall health
- Detect problems
- Track risk factors for diseases
- Monitor certain parameters more closely
- Tell how well you are aging
Once you’ve taken the test, you’ll have a path to more educated health and lifestyle decisions. This can increase your overall wellness, and help you maintain a balanced life.
