WELLNESS PROGRAMS

 

Wellness

Wellness promoters attempt to promote a healthier population and a higher quality of life. Rather than the aim of recovering from illness, these wellness programs aim at illness prevention in both the home and working environments.

Many companies are adopting Wellness Programs as part of their responsibility to employees. Such programs benefit the employee as well as the business, resulting in less days off sick, better stress management and overall improved work performance.

 

The Wellness Continuum

Wellness can be regarded as the starting end of the continuum to illness. Your perception of how “well” you are is your belief as to your current health status. This varies significantly between individuals. This perception is the total outcome of how you feel about four major areas of your life:

  • Body – Physical state of aches, pains and visible signs of illness
  • Mind - Emotional and mental Factors, not so visible
  • Relationships – Friends, Family, Work Associates
  • Spirit – Life enjoyment

This four areas are commonly referred to as “The Wellness Index”.

Reaching a state of wellness is associated with living an optimal quality of life beyond that which material wealth and external influences can offer. Achieving a state of total wellness is achieving real wealth.

Wellness connects the four major areas of your life to deliver both inner-peace and physical health.

A large part of your wellness is your own perception of how well you are.

If you are really well, you have less illness. But it is about the inner journey. A person can perceive themselves as ‘well’, yet have inner pathology. A person can believe themselves to be ill, with no physical illness.


Other definitions of Wellness relate to alternative medicines and treatments, however, I believe these fall well short of the true sphere of wellness.

 

Wellness Programs

Beyond the 4 forces secular wellness approach we outline here, other wellness programs adopt an opposing faith-based or spiritual approach.

Secular-based wellness programs – are based on individuals taking increased responsibility for their health behaviours, and may include additional aspects such as ‘stop-smoking’ programs. Workplace wellness programs are recognized by more and more companies for their value in improving health and well-being of their employees.

Faith-based wellness programs - sponsored by the faith-based community, in addition to basic health needs, also offer information on the quasi-spiritual, New Age and quasi-religious aspects of wellness in a quest for spiritual wholeness. Robert Schuller and Deepak Chopra are both advocates of faith based wellness.
