Our Definition of Wellness

Working on the St. Thomas trip competition prompted us to rethink how we define wellness. We broadened our definition from physical, mental and spiritual health to include four branches -- fitness of body, soundness of mind, sense of purpose, and mindset of sustainability. 


The overlap we've experienced with our Green Team taught of us to think of the importance of sustainability in wellness. The Blue Zones inspired some of my thinking -- especially when it comes to the importance of having a sense of purpose.
