Improved Health and Well-Being
Certainly, it can be said that one of the goals of The Vitality Project is to improve the level of relative “Wellness” of each client who becomes a member of The Vitality Project. That is an obvious, reasonable goal and expectation.
However, what does the term “Wellness” imply?
Wellness is a subjective term but, in my opinion, Wellness is a state of mind and body, synonymous to a condition of improved well-being and quality of life. The relative degree of Wellness that an individual experiences can be measured utilizing a combination of qualitative tools (individual thoughts and feelings regarding some standardized issues) and quantitative tools which rely upon various client-completed questionnaire responses.
Regardless of how you wish to evaluate the term Wellness, this condition is a functional, measurable health outcome which occurs when the health status of an individual is shifted to the right on the health continuum.
Improved Wellness may imply, improvements in body composition, lowered blood pressure, lower cholesterol, improved functional capacity, improved appearance, attitude and well-being.
The important issue in this case is that, when an individual’s level of “Wellness” is enhanced, this factor directly equates to improved physiological function, quality of life and well-being health outcomes, which should be the measurable end-point of any program that endeavors to improve the long-term health and Vitality of an individual.
Wellness is a state and involves various physical, emotional, cognitive and physiological outcomes. It is my intention to provide to The Vitality Project clients, the tools for their own enhanced and sustained long-term Wellness!
