What is wellness?

To me, at least for now, wellness means having expanded awareness and perspectives.  For example, mindfulness, self-compassion, gratitude, contentment, nourished with vital nutrients from whole foods and healthy posture and exercise are all wellness experiences.
I think sufferings are common humanities.  If I manage to resist the tendency to look away in fear, I might see the perspective needed for wellness.
As a physician promoter of wellness, I have opportunities to engage people in the moment of their sufferings and share our perspectives.  I also have opportunities to invite patients to come together in a group to share our personal and authentic perspectives.
