Anybody stalking me would get so bored, they'd forget why they were stalking me.

So I'm looking at this list and wondering why "It's a mute point" is missing.

And why does ANYTHING follow the phrase - "It goes without saying...".

Wellness. Where in the h*ll did that word come from and can anyone please tell me the difference between health and wellness?

Wellness incorporates the crunchy granola-eating, yoga-posing, herbal-ingesting/inhaling, Eastern medicine-loving crowd's concept of metaphysical health.

My 2¢.

FWIW, I like granola, yoga, herbs, and Eastern medicine. I just try not to be too precious about it. Everything in moderation, ya know.

Wellness includes mental state, I think. You can be healthy as an ox at the same time as you're suffering from depression, but you wouldn't have wellness.

Well, isn't that special!

Your explanation makes sense.
