A Path to a Life Well Lived
Research from the foremost organizations and projects: Global Wellness Institute, National Wellness Institute, Human Genome Project, Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, Gallup, Global Happiness Index, are finding more straightforward actionable discoveries in health, wellness, and wellbeing. Wellbeing focuses on more than just physical and mental disease mitigation, which is the realm of health, it also focuses on more than proactively engaging in habits and behaviors that mitigate disease, which is the realm of wellness. Wellbeing is multi-faceted – a life well lived. Our program has six proven facets to a life well lived: body, financial, mind, occupation, safety and social, and spirit and social.
