Wellness certainly is physical activity, but it is also nutrition education, developing conflict resolution strategies (including ways to stopping bullying) and character and leadership development. If we focus only on one aspect of wellness we are failing to look at the “whole child”, body, heart, mind and spirit. Wellness is about being well in every arena. All of our systems are interconnected and when we work on one aspect of our lives we are at least indirectly working on others, and when we do this with youth, we are helping them to find harmonic balance.
