The book analyzes wellness from a sociological perspective. It shows the high potential for wellness to become the most important measure for prevention and therefore for reducing health care expenditure. It also suggests that institutions should foster wellness activities in the community. However, it is central to be aware that wellness activities are related to socio-economic status, therefore it necessary to implement institutional interventions to make the practice of wellness activities less individualistic and more democratic. Sociology of health has seldom approached wellness. Wellness is more studied from the angle of the Sociology of sport and from the perspective of physical activities studies. In this book, wellness is analyzed through a wider perspective related to social justice, and not only to individual achievements.
