How is health related to wellness?

Health and wellness is a process of achieving one’s personal best state of mental and physical being. Eating healthy foods such as vegetables and lean protein and maintaining an active lifestyle contribute significantly to one’s state of health and wellness. But developing good eating and exercise habits are just a part of the process. To achieve a full state of wellness, one must address the social, emotional, spiritual and occupational factors that contribute to one’s state of being. This can often involve defining goals and making active changes in one’s job, daily routine and more.

Essentially, if Health is a state of being, wellness is the state of living a healthy lifestyle.
