Discussion and Replies
When we approach discussions about wellness, we each come to conclusions with our own perspectives that have been shaped by our experiences. As we begin our first discussion, take a moment to consider what has influenced your ideas of wellness and compare those ideas with what you read in this module’s readings. Then, address the following:
- In your own words, define the term wellness and discuss how it is used or impacts your daily life. How does your definition compare and contrast with those that were presented in the readings?
- What is the influence of wellness on your chosen field of study or future profession? How can you use your understanding of wellness in your professional career?
In response to your peers, provide feedback about their definition of wellness. Compare and contrast your answers and consider the following:
- What are the similarities and differences between your peer’s response and yours?
- How do the two definitions of wellness help to illustrate how wellness and society are intertwined? How can a perspective through the four lenses help to provide a greater understanding of wellness?
Make sure you support your response with the readings from this module and any additional resources, as needed.
