Life expectancy for humans has been increasing thanks to the recent developments especially in healthcare industry. While it’s wonderful to have a longer life, it’s equally important to have a healthy life. A healthy life is basically aging with grace.

Aging with grace is the secret but how about the secrets of aging healthily? Let’s see whether we can unravel some of them and talk about the concept of wellness altogether.

What is Wellness?

Wellness is the state of being “well” physically, mentally and also in terms of the social environment that surrounds us. Being and feeling well in all three aspects is called wellness, a state which leads to a life with quality.

World Health Organization points out to the fact that wellness is not only the state of being healhty and strong but also feeling well mentally and socially.

Health and wellness seem to be entwined with each other which brings us to the question: what sort of changes should I be making to age healthily and gracefully, what can do to make wellness my agenda?

Little changes in your life will go a long way to make wellness a part of your day, a topic in your agenda.
