What does wellness mean to you?
A quick search of the hashtag #wellness on Instagram and you find a sea of curated images and inspirational quotes that portray beautiful, clean and un-realistic lifestyles. From kale smoothies to sunrise meditations and expensive spas, wellness can feel like an unattainable luxury for most.
Wellness For All
But leave aside the polished pics, wellness at its core is about everyone becoming the best version of themselves. In alignment with their physical, emotional and mental health in order to live a happier life.
According to the National Wellness Institute, wellness can be defined as:
“a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential.”
