What are Wellness Programmes?

Research has shown that chronic stress can bring about poor health. As such, wellness programmes are designed to be immersive, personal retreats to promote and support the overall well-being of individuals. Such programmes provide participants with an opportunity to relax, rejuvenate, and focus on various aspects of their health.

The specific programmes implemented can vary depending on the goals and needs of the individual, and these could include: burnout management, weight and diet management, mental wellness etc.

The types of wellness programmes can vary widely, but here are some common categories:

Physical Wellness Programme

Physical wellness is a vital component of overall well-being, focusing on maintaining a healthy body through regular physical activities, eating right, and having sufficient rest for your body. A physical wellness programme aims to promote and enhance these aspects to foster a better health outcome and vitality. Some of these activities can include personalised fitness classes, yoga, targeted physical exercise regime, and more. Readers can reference the Singapore Physical Activity Guidelines, jointly developed by the Health Promotion Board and SportSG, for a comprehensive guide on physical activity pointers for different age groups.

Mental and Emotional Wellness Programme

Mental and emotional wellness encompasses more than just the absence of mental health disorders; it involves achieving a state of balance, resilience, and emotional intelligence. A mental and emotional wellness programme aims to provide tools and strategies to manage stress, build emotional resilience, and cultivate a positive outlook on life. These include stress management workshops, meditation classes, mindfulness sessions, counselling services etc. Readers may find the UK’s NHS guide, 5 Steps to Mental Wellbeing, useful to aid you in your journey towards better mental health.
