Wellness is not a synonym for health or fitness. In my understanding, a person can be terminally ill, mentally retarded, or physically disabled yet still possess a deep wellness spirituality. Conversely, a person can be physically fit, mentally awake, and morally straight yet abuse a spouse, beat up children, and be a colossal pain in the neck to everyone else. Certifiably healthy? certainly! Well? hardly!
...wellness is more a process than a state. One never really "fully arrives" at wellness. No sooner does a person achieve a wellness goal or objective than an entire new horizon of choices and possibilities explodes into view.
