What Is Wellness?
Wellness and well-being are the pursuit of lifestyle activities and choices that lead to a state of holistic health. It is a holistic approach to health that emphasizes the importance of mental, physical, and social well-being. Here are six holistic health gems from black women in wellness to follow and draw inspiration from.
Wellness is not just about being free from illness or injury; it is about living a fulfilling and meaningful life. It is about making choices that promote our overall health and well-being.
There are many different dimensions of wellness, including:
- Physical wellness: This includes taking care of our bodies by eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, taking daily supplements, and getting enough sleep.
- Mental wellness: This includes taking care of our minds by managing stress, developing coping skills, and building positive relationships.
- Emotional wellness: This includes being aware of and managing our emotions and developing a positive outlook on life.
- Social wellness: This includes building and maintaining healthy relationships with others and feeling connected to our community.
- Spiritual wellness: This includes finding purpose and meaning in life and developing a connection to something larger than ourselves.
Wellness Is A Lifestyle Choice
Wellness is a journey, not a destination, because it is about making choices that promote our overall health and well-being on a daily basis. Here are some examples of wellness activities:

Wellness is a personal journey, and it is up to you to show up for yourself. Stick around and play the long game in life by integrating wellness into your daily routine.
