Wellness is not just about the absence of stress and disease; it is about being as happy and healthy as you possibly can. Wellness techniques not only reduce stress but also enhance mindfulness, alertness and concentration (Schuster, Dobson, Jauregui & Blanks 2004), all of which are invaluable in both home and work life. Many work places are realising both the benefits and necessity of happy and healthy employees and are adopting wellness programs as a results (Greene 2011).

Benefits of the wellness approach
• Lower risk and frequency of illness
• Maximum energy and enthusiasm for life
• Continually developing personal abilities
• Improving the wellbeing of people around you
• Contributing to the ‘greater good’ (Schaefer 1999).
Perhaps one of the most significant, yet hardest to measure, benefits of a wellness approach is that it builds resilience within a person (Cohen 2008). Resilience enables a person to cope better with stress and illness, making wellness the best preventative medicine for all types of illness.
Wellness programs also provide an avenue to make the necessary lifestyle changes to reduce the risk of life threatening diseases. According to the World Health Organisation (2004), 60% of deaths worldwide are from preventable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic respiratory disease and diabetes. The Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (2010) estimate that improvements in diet, an increase in physical activity and smoking cessation could eliminate 80% of heart disease, stroke and Type 2 diabetes, as well as 40% of cancers.
The benefits of wellness go beyond illness prevention and optimum functioning for the individual; they can also benefit workplaces. Recent research from the US indicates that for every $1.00 spent on workplace wellness programs, absenteeism costs fall by $2.73 (Baicker, Cutler & Song 2010). The impact of this is so significant that workplace wellness programs are being showcased as part of Barack Obama’s health reform policy. Some of the many benefits to employers include:
• increased productivity
• lower absenteeism
• improved morale,
• reduced staff turnover
• increased recruitment potential (Madsen 2003).
The workplace appears to be a good place to target for individuals to improve their wellness. Although it is widely acknowledged that it is an individual’s responsibility to look after own wellness, it has been suggested that the support systems available in the workplace may increase a person’s readiness to undertake a wellness change (Madsen 2003). Another factor that may influence the impact of wellness programs is that people will generally not undertake wellness programs unless they are convenient. That means if wellness options are available on-site they will be more likely to participate (Madsen 2003).
