Many of you may wonder what exactly wellness is. Dr. Z and I had a fascinating conversation about this the other day. I was visiting her at Duquesne University. As I strolled in , I plopped myself down on a cozy chair and unwrapped a delectable chocolate from her desk . This has been an ongoing tradition for years ! I laughed and mentioned how I only seem to eat chocolate in her “Duq”office. We then talked about wellness and how it means something different for everyone. For some people, wellness means zero carbs and working out in the gym 6 days a week. For others, it means enjoying chocolate in moderation and savoring every delicious bite. Wellness could mean thriving in your career or being exuberant staying at home with your children and dog.

Wellness is what you make of it and that is why we love wellness so much ! It truly embodies so much and it’s meaning can change throughout your life .

Let us know in the comments what wellness means to you!
