DEFINITION OF WELLNESS
“Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.
THE SIX ELEMENTS
We are all complex as human beings, and no one aspect of our life can define us as well or happy. Six areas of wellbeing have been identified as parts of the whole.
Intellectual • Emotional • Physical • Social • Environmental • Spiritual
The Whole of Me considers the WHOLE of the child, not each as isolated parts.
