What does wellness mean to you?

Take a moment to think about your answer, and while you're doing so, let's reflect on the term wellness and where it came from. In 1961, H.L. Dunn coined this term and offered its first definition: "an integrated method of functioning which is oriented toward maximizing the potential of which the individual is capable."

More than 50 years later, the concept of wellness has shifted and changed, but at its core, the idea of wellness isn't that much different today than it was back then. "Maximizing your potential," for example, is something that many of you are likely striving for right now, whether you're trying to lose weight, get more exercise or strengthen your relationships with others.

So coming back to our question to you now, what does wellness mean to you? If you're like most people, your answer may have strayed from the textbook-type definition we just quoted. To you, wellness may mean a set of numbers you're striving to reach, a general feeling, or the ability to do something that means a lot to you, such as playing with your children or grandchildren. The answers to this question are endless — but it's very possible that you'll find shades of H.L. Dunn's definition in your response.

Whatever your answer is, we hope to help you find the tools, techniques, strategies and answers that can help you achieve your personal vision of well-being in Mayo Clinic The Integrative Guide to Good Health.

Throughout this book, you'll learn about ways that you can integrate the best that conventional medicine has to offer with complementary health practices and helpful home solutions that can enrich your wellness one step at a time.
