Environmental Wellness

The environment for which each of us lives has a significant impact on how we feel on a daily basis. Environmental wellness lies in the interaction between you and your surrounding environment. By understanding the impacts of this interaction, you can take actions to not only protect yourself from environmental hazards but also minimize the negative impact of your behavior on the environment. Leading a lifestyle that is respectful to our environment and minimizes any harm done to it is a critical part of environmental wellness.
