Be Well at SHS

What is Wellness?

"Wellness is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” – The World Health Organization.

Wellness is the conscious development of the whole self. Embarking on a wellness journey is a process of searching for the appropriate “tools” to make you a healthier and happier human being, plus discovering your own effective methods to use these tools for continued growth and development. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth.
