What is more beautiful than spending a relaxing afternoon after a nice but intensive ski- or trekking-day? The magic word is wellness!
The American doctor Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper ("The Father of aerobics"), as well as the social-doctor Halbert Dunn, used the phrase high level wellness in the '50s, '60s and '70s based on a series of lectures in which wellness was defined as "an integrated method of functioning which is oriented towards maximizing the potential of which the individual is capable. It requires that the individual maintains a continuum of balance and purposeful direction within the environment where he is functioning."
Wellness can be described as a state that combines health and happiness. Thus the factors that contribute to a healthy and happy life style are also those which contribute to a state of well-being.
