The Wellness Place
Recently, you may have noticed underneath our name ‘Evergreen Commons’ a tag line: The Wellness Place. Its purpose is to better define our position regarding who we are, what we plan to do, and where we are aiming as we look to the future.
First, we see wellness as much more than simply physical health. We believe it is the complete integration of all eight dimensions of life: social, spiritual, vocational, emotional, environmental, financial, intellectual and physical. These dimensions of wellness provide a framework to guide our organization and all of our programs and services.
Second, we desire that “The Wellness Place” becomes a platform for the pursuit of enhancing ones well-being in our community. Our wellness focus is on individual and group responsibilities that positively influence cognitive and physical abilities, as well as quality of life and purpose. Our emphasis is on the causes of wellness and also promote preventative and practical strategies that encourage individuals to become their best selves, regardless of personal challenges.
Third, it is our hope that “The Wellness Place” will encourage and inspire individuals to develop a wellness lifestyle; as well as a positive attitude, spirit, and outlook resulting in purposeful, active, and holistic living as fully as one is able.
Those of us who have been ‘around for a while’ know life is full of both joy and sorrow, with a tilt toward pain and brokenness. Our experience in living life informs us that it takes intentionality to actively contribute in building a thriving community and to purposely pursue living life to the fullest.
Our hope is that Evergreen Commons – “The Wellness Place” – will inspire you on your own journey to wellness and the pursuit of enhancing your well-being.
Grace and Shalom,
