It's like church. People do church on Sundays in a building with a cross they call "church." And then they leave it after service and live their "normal" lives in the world. Sunday is "church" day to them. They are familiar with the idea that church is actually people and church life should continue on other days (not just Sunday) even when they're in the world out there. But they don't really know what that means. And probably, some readers would find it odd that I mention church here when I'm talking about wellness. But it adds up.
Real wellness (and Choy's Cut wellness) is being well in every aspect of life. It's not just health and fitness. You cannot be really well if your marriage is a wreck or your family broken, for instance---even if you have the most muscular or sexy body on the planet. And definitely you cannot be well if your soul is going straight to hell.

Wellness is being well in life in all 6 aspects. You're well physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, spiritually and financially. That's what I call all-inclusive wellness. It's not necessary that you get them all perfect now. The vital thing is that you have balance in every aspect. Wellness means balance, as perfection also is.
It's important to be well the whole day. It's a lifestyle. While you're getting ready for work or business, traveling, eating, talking with friends or clients, relaxing, watching a movie, posting on Facebook or Instagram, shopping, driving, cooking, napping, etc. you should be enjoying wellness.

For instance, I'm talking to my boss and he's giving me a hard time, requiring a lot and burdening me with quotas and deadlines. Though that's stressing me, I should be well. I'm stuck in heavy traffic, being immobile on the same spot for hours and getting late for appointments, I should be well. No matter what the situation is (especially if you're in adverse situations) wellness should still reign.
This is a powerful wellness verse:
I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. [Philippians 4.11-13]Wellness is being content. But it's also the ability to "do all things." You cannot be really "well" if you're not content. Contentment is a vital life lesson that will keep you well all day, every day throughout life. But it doesn't mean you stop being better. Wellness is also reaching your full potentials by "doing all things." And in Choy's Cut wellness, this is possible only through Christ who strengthens.
Your full potential with patience, for instance. You face problems and challenges with kindness, understanding and a broad mind. You train yourself to keep cool and peaceful amid crisis. That training includes a healthy diet and regular workouts to help ensure you have normal blood pressure (so you can control your anger), mental and emotional health to understand things with maturity, and spiritual health for empowerment from God.
Now, you can more easily get all the above if you have financial health to buy the best health supplements, quality reading materials and other things that can help you achieve them.
Wellness is not just what you find in gyms, spas or wellness centers. It's what you find in life.
