They gather information about the problem and work on it, finding out the positives and negatives in that. It is also possible that they remain at the same stage for years.

The WHO defines health as “a state of physical, mental, and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease.” While the term Health focuses on an individual’s illness status and her/his relationship to that status, wellness transcends the absence of disease. It is much more than merely physical health, Exercise or nutrition. In fact, wellness is the full integration of states of physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. Wellness is about living a life full of personal responsibility and, therefore, taking proactive steps for one’s entire well-being.
