DIMENSIONS OF WELLNESS
- There are things we, individually, must do to help improve our health and wellness. The doctor cannot fix everything.
- Health includes our physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing.
- This is a journey; we never “arrive.” There is always something more to be done.
- You have to work on all areas to improve wellness.
- There is no one way – everyone’s path will be different.
- There is no perfect day to start – start toda
