Wellness is a word used to describe living the best possible life you can regardless of whether you have a disease or disability. Wellness is something that we have personal control over, but it must be a goal that we are willing to persue. We can reach out for therapists, healers, meditation and fitness to support us on our journey and help us meet our goals. Right here in Scugog there is plenty of support of all kinds if we have the desire to feel better about ourselves and live a better life.
