Focusing on physical and mental well-being, for better performance
How do we really define wellness?
Let us refer to the Greek rendering of the word ευεξία. Ευεξία means well-being. It originates from the ancient adverb εὖ, where εὖ means "well", "properly", "as befits" and the future tense of the verb ἔχω, ἕξω, which means “to have”.
Therefore, wellness or well-being is defined as the state in which one has exactly what is needed to feel well. Although there are objective criteria to determine one's level of wellness, there are also several reasons that turn wellness into a personal matter as well.
