Health and Wellness

The obvious first question: What is Health and Wellness? We’ve all heard the words… but do we really understand what they mean?

Some basic definitions:

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines health like this:

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

The University of California’s website offers this definition of wellness:

“Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.”

… and further goes on to suggest why wellness matters:

“Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It’s an ongoing circle. Therefore, it is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.”

It is clear, then, that “What is health and wellness?” is important. It is a question with profound implications for your life and mine. Getting the answer right can have a significant positive impact on our lives.

The Health & Wellness category seeks to help in answering that question. In it, we will explore the what, how, and who of achieving positive results.

H2Only is not a ”wellness company”, per se. It’s not what we do for a living. However, we understand the importance of clean water leading to positive results in health and wellness. We may not be experts, but we’re very interested and motivated, and hope you find value in this category!
