The topic of health, wellness, and disease are of interest to me because they are all closely linked, and a problem in one impacts the other. People must understand that wellness is an intentional, ongoing, and holistic approach to making healthy choices in different areas of life functioning. For instance, in the past two years, different impacts on every aspect of people and their wellness occurred unprecedentedly due to the pandemic. Therefore, people need to live while taking precautions because diseases can affect their health and interfere with their wellness. Understanding the topic is important to me and others because it informs an individual’s capacity for self-care and how to manage their health, which can reduce the burden of diseases (Madjar, Shachaf, & Zlotnick, 2019). Health is essential in one’s life because a lack of diseases and living a healthy lifestyle makes the mind remain active, which is of core importance to human happiness
