We asked 10 Albertans what wellness
means to them. As their answers reveal,
no one definition applies, although
common themes abound. By Anne Georg
he right words to fully grasp the meaning of wellness are difficult to
find. Wellness is multi-dimensional. It includes physical and mental
well-being as well as social ties and emotional resiliency. But what
does that mean?
We asked 10 Albertans—some in the health-care sector and a number
in other sectors—to define what wellness means to them personally and
how they encourage and contribute to it in their lives, organizations and
communities. This is what they told us.
