What is a wellness plan and why would I need it, you might ask? Strange how we plan events throughout our lives and for some or other reason, we exclude a very big part of our lives from this planning. In fact, our entire lives we structure around one thing – ensuring that we’ll enjoy retirement on day. Yet, we don’t plan on how to stay strong, healthy and fit to enjoy retirement as planned. We just assume we’ll stay in good health.
With an increasing focus on wellness and quality of life, groups and individuals often need guidance on how to set up a wellness plan. It’s important to understand the elements that constitute a good quality of life in order to put in place mechanisms that will ensure that this objective is achieved.
Wellness includes the physical, mental and psychological aspects of our being and these can’t be separated. Balance is the key to living a life filled with quality. As we get older, prevention plays a huge part in this wellness plan. Early detection and treatment is key in protecting your independence.
