Wellness is a measure of a person’s mental and physical health, and is used to characterize a person’s overall health and well-being. While health generally refers only to a person’s physical–and sometimes psychological–health, wellness assessments take into account a number of factors that can affect health, such as stable relationships, exercise, nutrition, access to clean water, and the safety and security of a person’s living situation. These factors sometimes predict long-term wellness because, even if a particular issue has not yet affected a person’s wellness, it can eventually.
