What does wellness mean to you?

Every day, physicians are fortunate to give our patients a wonderful gift—that of good health. We’re celebrating this gift during the holiday season by asking people across the country to tell us what health and wellness means to them in six-word messages using #6WordWellness.

My #6WordWellness for the new year: Healthy patients. Professional pride. Harnessing technology.

Here are some others I found on the AMA’s Facebook and Twitter pages that capture some of the many reasons that being able to live a healthy life is so important to each of us:

  • Going one step further than yesterday.
  • Dad still kickin’ it at 88.
  • High fiving my daughter’s little hand.
  • 2015: running my fastest full marathon.
  • Finally getting some much needed sleep!

I want to know what wellness means to you and your patients. Tell us via Facebook or Twitter using #6WordWellness, or post a comment below.

A final six-word message from the AMA to you: Proud to support our nation’s physicians. Thank you for the very important work you do day in and day out. We are grateful to be part of it.

Happy holidays! Let’s make 2015 a healthy, happy year.
