Health and Wellness Data

Health and Wellness are often used interchangeably, but they have slightly different meanings. Health is more of a medical term and describes the physical and mental state of a person. However, wellness can be achieved through our everyday actions by making choices toward a healthy lifestyle. Wellness involves conscious choices on the part of the individual, whereas health simply describes a person’s condition. The combined phrase “health and wellness” has come to mean the pursuit of overall physical, mental, and emotional health. This term is used frequently in various contexts, all aimed at promoting overall well-being.

Common components for health and wellness:

Physical exercise and healthy eating are generally recognized as positive habits of a healthy lifestyle.  Physical wellness can help lower the risk of disease and decrease stress.

Emotional health can impact everyday activities and improve resilience.  Managing stress, strengthening social connections, and getting a good night’s sleep can all positively impact emotional wellness.

Avoidance of potentially harmful products or behaviors by removing things that cause illness or create unhealthy consequences is the key to achieving health and wellness.
