            Winning Happily at Wellness

 

The Value of Wellness

            Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Wellness is more than being free from illness; it is a dynamic process of change and growth. Reference: Student Health and Counseling Services                          

            Community is an interacting population of various kinds of individuals in a common location. In Imus National High School, not just a group of teachers, employees, and staffs but as a family, with a common goal of winning together ,we want our members to be physically fit and enjoy the chance of doing physical activities apart from what they usually do during the working week. 

            Working takes up a majority of our time during the week, so the way we feel about our work contributes to our overall well-being. Proud Imuseño Disiplinado Wellness Community is Imus National High School’s wellness initiative to promote and improve employees’ health which includes activities such as school-planned fitness activities and other distressing related activities.
