Wellness – your physical and spiritual health
The concept of wellness was first formulated by the American physician, Halbert L. Dunn in 1959, as a concept of a healthy lifestyle. In the United States, popularization of wellness began in the 1960s. However, in Ukraine this word has gained popularity only recently. So, what is wellness and why is it gaining more and more attention all over the world? Wellness means achieving a high level of health, well-being, longevity, the discovery of inner potential, achievement of perfect mental and physical balance. To practice wellness you need to pay special attention to:
- balanced physical activity,
- proper nutrition,
- constant improvement of mental abilities,
- recovery and relaxation,
- spiritual harmony and development,
- physical improvement, body care and care for natural beauty.
Such approach to health not only ensures well-being, it teaches to value oneself as an individual, feel confident in the social environment and increase the longevity of the nation. So, to sum it up, we can say that wellness is an ideology of a healthy lifestyle that forms a complex of physical, spiritual, social health, and active longevity. As Paul Pilsner, the economist and analyst, the economic adviser to the President of the United States, put it: “Today, the main need of most people is not money, but health.” Therefore, following the concept of wellness, you will reach your maximum level in all areas of life.
The main task of wellness is to go ahead of illnesses, prevent diseases and signs of aging not only externally but also on the internal level of a person. To do this, you need to remain active and take preventive measures to prevent various diseases. Not always, where we live, there are the necessary natural and economic factors available. Therefore, wellness tourism has become another interesting direction. Globalization allows you to take advantage of natural and medical resources around the world, choosing individually the best option for everyone. In Ukraine, wellness recreation is concentrated in the main tourist destinations in the south and west of the country. It is here that all the natural factors are complemented by advanced medical and technological resources. Ukraine has become a part of the global wellness trend not that long ago, but it has achieved extremely high results. Our country welcomes guests from all over the world, treats them to healthy national cuisine from environmentally friendly products, and provides some unsurpassed natural resources and temperate climate.
