Bringing Wellness Strategies to Businesses, Organizations, Real Estate Projects and Communities

Wellness Is More Than A Buzzword

Today, an internet search for the term “wellness” yields over 1.5 trillion hits. There’s wellness travel, wellness tech, wellness foods, wellness real estate, wellness workplaces and more. The sheer volume of the term’s usage begs the obvious:  What does wellness really mean? While it  came into use the mid-17th century to express the opposite of illness, in the mid-20th century—1946 to be exact—it got a far broader definition from the World Health Organization:  “a state of physical, mental and social wellbeing—not merely the absence of disease.”
