Health versus Wellness
The terms health and wellness tend to be used interchangeably. While these two are very connected, they are not exactly synonymous terms. To be clear:
Health(n)- the state of being free from illness or injury; a person’s mental or physical condition.
Wellness(n)- the state of being in good health, especially as an actively pursued goal.
So, in order to have one you need to have the other. Someone can be free from a physical illness or injury and thus be healthy, but not in a state of wellness because their emotional or mental health may not be at 100%. In order to be completely healthy ones physical, emotional, and mental health must be free from illness/injury, and once that is achieved one will be in a state of wellness.
