Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy, fulfilling life. More than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth where good physical and mental health is maintained through a nutritious diet, proper exercise regimen and healthy habits.
In today’s strenuous and hectic life, wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions. It is a chain reaction. So, everyone needs to achieve optimal wellness to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness and ensure positive interactions.
In this article, we have listed some of the wellness programmes in Bali to be considered for those planning to make drastic lifestyle changes.
