Healthy body, healthy mind
Being as healthy as possible in our mind and body, and actively seeking steps in order to achieve this. This is key to the idea of wellness.

On an aeroplane, one of the first things you are taught is that if something should happen to cause oxygen masks to come down, you have to put on your own before tending to someone else.
