Health and Wellness

We hear the word “health” in many places and in numerous contexts – at the doctor’s office, during discussions with friends and family, on advertisements on television, the list goes on and on. Good health is something that many people strive for, to be able to live long and happy lives. There is another word that is gaining popularity and is starting to pop up more frequently in the discussions of overall health: wellness. What is wellness?

Wellness can be described as becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life, while health means the absence of both  physical afisherman-591699_1280nd mental disease. Wellness is the state of living a healthy lifestyle. Both are very important to one’s well-being and the ability to get the most out of life.

In this blog we will explore ways to support good health and wellness right here in our wonderful Montrose County and on the Western Slope.
