Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Wellness matters because everything we do and every emotion we feel relates to our well-being. In turn, our well-being directly affects our actions and emotions at home, work, or at an event. It is important for everyone to achieve optimal wellness in order to subdue stress, reduce the risk of illness, and ensure positive interactions. Our mission at LAStartups.com is to curate and create content that helps you, me, us in achieving optimal wellness every day, month, and/or year.
