Definition of Wellness
Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.
"...a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." - The World Health Organization.
"a conscious, self-directed and evolving process of achieving full potential." - The National Wellness Institute
Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.

Workplace wellness is any workplace health promotion activity or organizational policy designed to support healthy behavior in the workplace and to improve health outcomes.
Having a healthier work force can reduce costs while improving your company's productivity.
When you have healthy employees, your company reaps the benefits. A correctly designed wellness program can increase productivity, boost morale and reduce stress. Wellness programs help employees make smart and healthy choices that can reduce health care costs, increase vitality and diminish absenteeism. In general, the costs of implementing a wellness program are minimal compared to the benefits, reports Gaebler Resources for Entrepreneurs.
Interest in wellness is growing. Corporations large and small are recognizing the benefits of offering programs to meet wellness needs of their employees. Now, your company can offer resources designed to improve your employees’ health awareness.
A "nip it in the bud" approach that targets high-risk employees can help them manage chronic conditions--high cholesterol, hypertension and so on--before they turn into bigger, costlier, problems. And with the emphasis today on fitness and healthy habits, people are glad to get some help in sticking to their resolutions to eat better and exercise.
