WELLNESS – A Wholesome Package for a Body to Keep Going
People frequently relate wellness with physical health — including diet, exercise, and weight control — but it encompasses so much more. Integrating physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, wellness nourishes the body, stimulates the mind, and uplifts the spirit. It is "a lifestyle and a personalized approach to living life in a way that helps you to become the best kind of person that your potentials, circumstances, and fate will allow" even if it always includes pursuing health.
Wellness necessitates good self-stewardship, for ourselves and for those we care about and who care about us Wellness is both a professional and a personal obligation for individuals who work in the helping industries, such as those of us in veterinary medicine. We have an ethical responsibility to take care of our own health and wellbeing in order to provide patients and clients with high-quality services. No circumstance or individual can justify failing to take care of ourselves adequately, which keeps us from hurting people we serve.

FACTORS of CHANGE in HUMAN BEHAVIOUR
Human behaviour : what we do, how we do it, and whether we will succeed — is influenced by many factors, 2 of which are of particular relevance when it comes to wellness are
Self-regulation is central to effective human functioning. It is “our ability to direct our behaviour and control our impulses so that we meet certain standards, achieve certain goals, or reach certain ideals”. It allows us to act in our short- and long-term best interests, consistent with our deepest values. There’s just one limitation: self-regulation requires mental energy, and the brain is always looking for ways to conserve energy.
Habits are powerful. With about 40% of our everyday behaviour repeated in the form of habits, they shape our very existence, and ultimately, our future. Habits, in fact, are key to wellness. For better or worse, habits very much influence health, well-being, and quality of life. If you are striving to improve these, you need to think about habits, because if you change your habits for the better, you change your life for the better.
