The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) defines health as: Actively pursue activities, choices, and lifestyles that lead to an overall state of health. There are two critical aspects to this definition.
Health is not a passive or static state but an "active pursuit" related to our intentions, choices, and actions to achieve optimal health and well-being.
Health goes hand in hand with overall health—that is, it goes beyond physical health. It encompasses many different dimensions that should work in harmony. Health is a personal pursuit - we are responsible for our choices, behaviors, and lifestyles - but it is also significantly influenced by the physical, social and cultural environment in which we live. Wellness is often confused with health, happiness, and well-being. While there are common elements, health differs in that it does not involve a static state of being (i.e., happy, healthy, or well-being). Instead, health is associated with an active process of being aware and making choices that lead to optimal overall health and well-being.
My understanding is probably the meaning of "comprehensive health." Wellness actually comes from the English word well-being. My understanding of the meaning of well-being is: live a good life, live with purpose, health and freedom.
The word Well-being, in Western culture, can be traced back to eudemonia in ancient Greek philosophy, that is, "good life," and good life really means "complete life," "meaningful life," reaching A deep sense of happiness and inner satisfaction. In this day and age, it may be the most crucial thing in life itself.
Wellness mainly includes health status in 6 areas:
Physical health, mental health, spiritual health, emotional health, social relationship health, and environmental health.
As a startup founder, focusing on the wellness field is for personal and business reasons. In fact, for many people, maintaining good health is the easiest thing now. And other points, especially mental health, are getting more and more attention.
Entrepreneurship is a long-distance race, and health is the capital of the revolution. In addition to the high-pressure state of rest, I need to spend more time outside of work to take care of my physical health (physical health) and adjust my mental state (mental health) after starting to learn meditation (Spiritual health) using Sunlight Therapy. This makes my brain work a little better, and I can better cope with stress. You can clearly feel that your physical and mental state has improved.
For business opportunities, more and more industries and companies have begun to embrace the concept of wellness. They have launched products that allow everyone to eat healthily, drink healthy, use fit, wear healthy, and play healthy. At the same time, many technology companies use new technologies or material technologies to reduce energy consumption and reduce the carbon footprint of products (Environmental health)
