Health and wellness mean different things
Health refers to the overall condition of the body or mind and the presence or absence
of injury or illness
Wellness refers to optimal health and vitality, encompassing all the dimensions of well-
being
What is Health?
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and no merely
the absence of disease or infirmity”- WHO, 1948
“Health is, therefore, seen as a resource for every day life… Health is a positive
concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capabilities”-
WHO, 1986 (Ottawa Charter)
Can be influenced or determined by factors beyond your control ex. genes, age,
health care system, care received as a child
What is Wellness?
An expanded idea of health
Ability to live life fully, with vitality and meaning
Largely determined by the decisions you make about how you live your life
Not a static goal but a dynamic process of change and growth
Enhanced wellness involves making conscious decisions to control risk factors ex.
age, family history are non modifiable factors while smoking, exercising and a healthy
diet are modifiable risk factors
Health Promotion: process of enabling people to increase control over and improve
their health; vehicle for achieving wellness
Encompasses 7* interrelated dimensions
