While wellness and well-being are related concepts that focus on aspects of health and holistic fulfilment, they are not exactly the same.
Wellness typically refers to the active pursuit of health and well-being in various dimensions of life. It often involves deliberate actions and lifestyle choices aimed at achieving optimal physical, mental, and emotional health. Wellness programs and initiatives commonly target specific areas such as physical fitness, nutrition, stress management, and disease prevention. Wellness is often viewed as a proactive and preventive approach to health, emphasising self-care practices and individual responsibility.
Well-being on the other hand has a broader scope and encompasses a more comprehensive state of overall health, happiness, and life satisfaction. It goes beyond the physical dimension and includes aspects such as mental, emotional, social, and even spiritual well-being. Well-being considers the overall quality of life and the sense of fulfilment and purpose individuals experience in different domains, including work, relationships, personal growth, and community engagement. It emphasises the holistic nature of human existence and the interplay between various aspects of well-being.
