Why is wellness a process rather than a goal? 

Jun 3rd, 2015

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Wellness can be broadly defined as “the quality or state of being healthy in body and mind, especially as the result of deliberate effort.” [Dictionary.com]

There are three important things to note about what this definition suggests and one missing piece that I will elaborate upon:
1. Wellness encompasses the body and the mind.
2. It is the result of specific efforts.
3. Those efforts are deliberate.

The missing piece is that wellness is a process. Rather than wellness being something we achieve and check off our to-do list, we must be deliberate and choose behaviors that will lead us toward a desired state. This is important to note because if we think of wellness only as a state of being, we could very well overlook important considerations that will help us sustain our state of being.
