I am the first to admit that I have tried just about every wellness fad under the sun. And you know what, I still do a lot of them. I reckon “wellness” gets a bad wrap. Who doesn’t want to be well?! I understand why it does and I do agree that it has been somewhat problematically wielded to hawk products that are not in any way representative of what a reasonable person would expect to make them feel particularly well. But this co-option of “wellness” as a marketing tool doesn’t erase the philosophy underpinning it, which is really what’s important.
When I think of wellness, I think of the connection between my mind, my body and my spirit. I think of the things that I know make me feel healthy and happy. “Well”, if you will.
