What is wellness?

Wellness is a term that is used in many different ways, although many find it hard to define what it actually means. Wellness is more than a simple absence of disease; it is the active, continuous process of making choices that lead to a healthy, deeply fulfilling life.

Embracing and nurturing wellness involves understanding the concept of the whole self. This means viewing yourself as more than just a walking compilation of health data, but also a complex entity with multiple dimensions.

For example, at any given time the following components of wellness may affect your quality of life:

  • Physical
  • Emotional
  • Social
  • Environmental
  • Occupational
  • Spiritual
  • Intellectual


If any of these components are out of balance, your overall wellness suffers. 

What is the role of balance in wellness?

Balance is a critical part of wellness. In order to feel and function at your highest possible level, it is important to pay attention to all of the components. When there is an imbalance, taking action to correct the issue can go a long way toward improving your quality of life. 

For example, if your career is demanding you may be performing very well on the job, but neglecting to nurture your family life or taking time to get outside and exercise. On the other hand, a stay-at-home parent may have really strong emotional bond with their child, but lack outside social connections or the intellectual challenges that work or study provide.

Wellness is especially important if you suffer from chronic health conditions. Living with a serious medical issue creates a great deal of additional stress, which only makes matters worse. Dr. Jircik not only treats your underlying health conditions, he also works in partnership with you to help you achieve optimal wellness.
