Whether you’re already taking positive steps toward wellness or you have a few concerns, positive choices often lead to a healthier — and happier — you. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can minimize the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases. Wellness assessments can provide a starting place and can serve as a map to guide you along your journey.
But what does wellness really mean?
When you think about wellness, you might first think about your physical health. Do you have heartburn? Do aches and pains make it difficult to get around?
According to experts, there are many other areas of wellness that need to be considered if you want to live a meaningful and fulfilling life. Taking care of your intellectual, social, and spiritual wellness can also make you feel energized and better prepared to meet the joys and challenges of life.
Known as holistic health care, this approach focuses on the whole person — mind, body, and spirit.
There are always opportunities for enhancing your wellness. A wellness assessment is a great way to gather the information that will get you on the path to a stronger and healthier you.
This simple, 15-question self-assessment can help you start to identify the areas of wellness where you're thriving as well as those areas that may need greater attention. Taking this assessment will also help you to reflect on components of health that you may not have considered before. Then you can make a plan with concrete and realistic steps you can take toward healthier habits and better well-being.
Of course, what wellness means to you might be different from your neighbor’s, and you might have different goals, too. Your goals might even change over time. Wellness is a lifelong process of making decisions that support a more balanced life and enable you to maximize your potential.
