Wehl Community Manifesto

Wehl is a healthy lifestyle app for anyone who wants to take a more natural, holistic and balanced approach to wellness. At Wehl, community means that we’re a diverse group of people with different circumstances, experiences, challenges, goals and habits yet we share the same common mission – to improve our personal wellness and to help others improve. We celebrate our individual uniqueness while we focus on what unites us as a community. We believe that wehlness means different things to different people. It’s about focusing on each of the components, whatever they mean to you.

Given that this is a health and wellness app, we don’t feel the need for rules here. Rather, wellness is the guideline and the way we operate. We can sum up our behavior in the following statement:

We endeavor to always treat and accept others the way we would like to be treated and accepted. This means that our conduct and content will be respectful of others in their pursuit of wehlness no matter how similar or different the pursuit is.

Articulating a framework, or foundation of sorts, can help us understand more about what our Wehl community focus is all about. What follows is an expansion on the statement above … a few “details” about how we roll here at Wehl!

Wehl is a place to …

  • Make Friends – Get to know each other, learn from each other, and support each other in the pursuit of wehlness habits daily. Wellness is a lifelong process and we need friends to journey with us.
  • Cooperate – We’re a community focused on cooperating, helping each other through the ups and downs and co-existing peacefully. We don’t mind some healthy competition now and again but we’re all on the same team here.
  • Give and Receive – We want to give inspiration, encouragement and information to others even more than we receive it. We can each offer support and make unique contributions no matter where we’re at in our wehlness journey – even if it’s just as simple as a high-five or a smile.
  • Embrace and Improve Yourself – We’re all unique. We have unique bodies, experiences, challenges, goals, and environments so while there are numerous wehlness tips that apply to us all, for the finer details, we each have to figure out what works for us! We can learn new ideas from others, experiment, listen to our bodies and settle on what fits us best! We’ve got to remember to take it easy on ourselves when we experience setbacks or don’t make the best choices. And of course, just like apples and oranges, we can’t compare ourselves to others. We want to practice self-love and own our wehlness. We want to embrace our journey, wherever we’re at, regardless of wherever others are at.
  • Be Real, Not Perfect – There is no such thing as perfect when it comes to wellness. We all have more to learn and room to grow. We want to focus on balance and making small, sustainable changes. Our successes and our failures are part of #reallife and are both things we can be proud of because they make us better versions of ourselves if we let them. We don’t all live reality-show entertaining lives either. Our normal, everyday life is what we want to share. Edit the photos or don’t – sometimes life is glamourous and sometimes not so much.
  • Focus on the Positive – You know the saying, “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” We don’t deny the challenges of life here but we do try to dig deep and choose to look for the positives so we can make the best-tasting lemonade possible. We don’t pretend that life is all flowers and rainbows. We just use good judgement and think about how our content may affect others’ wehlness.
  • Move on – Sometimes people can be (purposely but more often accidently) mean or sometimes life doesn’t go our way. Negativity, in its various forms, isn’t good for our wellness nor is it good for others to see. Of course, Wehl isn’t the place for rants and dwelling on it. So, we try to “Let it go” (Frozen-style) or “Shake it off” (a la Taylor Swift) and help each other get back on track!   
  • Stay Open – to change, to new ideas, to new people, to new…
  • Have a Healthy Debate – All opinions, knowledge levels, education backgrounds and real-life experiences have merit in helping us make informed decisions about wellness because a lot about wellness is not clear cut. That’s why we’re here – to voice opinions and experiences while respecting others’ opinions and experiences. We act like it’s a stimulating in-person discussion over tea and agree to disagree whenever necessary.
  • Develop Healthy Online Habits
    • Time – While we want to participate regularly, we actually don’t want to be on Wehl all the time! That would go against the well living we are hoping to foster! We want to encourage time offline to live out our wehlness, enhance in-person relationships and engage meaningfully in life. So, we stop by, check off our habits, get inspired by new ideas, encourage someone who shared something we’ve appreciated share a post about our wehlness for the day.   Then, we get offline to live out our wehlness!  
    • Sharing – What is posted may be seen by any Wehl member, so we keep this in mind whenever we’re posting.
  • Make Wehlness Fun – Let’s show our personalities, be creative, be funny, be ourselves. Let’s recharge with fun, cooperative energy and inspiration whenever we’re on Wehl.

 We remember that Wehl is not a place to …

  • Offer, or ask for, specific, individual professional medical or health advice
  • Advertise, sell or promote Multi-level Marketing (MLM) or Pharmaceutical products or services (This doesn’t mean there’s not a time and place for them, it’s just not here)
  • Have poor behavior of any kind (e.g. Use bad language, be unkind, judgmental, etc.)
  • Do anything contrary to our Terms of Use

Wehl For Business PRO:

As those who operate a Wehl for Business PRO account, we participate in accordance with the above Wehl Community Manifesto and in addition, keep the following in mind:

For us as wellness professionals and business owners, Wehl is a place to…

  • Inspire wehlness first – No one wants to be sold to these days, that’s why the Wehl app is built to do social sharing (and marketing) differently.  We help people – current, potential (and even those that may never be) clients/customers - in their real-life wehlness journeys. We focus on contributing positively as part of the community (i.e. sharing tips/info and commenting) while the marketing comes secondary (and likely much easier and more naturally). Creating a bit of mystery and playing a little hard-to-get doesn’t just work in the dating world!
  • Cheer each other on – A little competition can be healthy and some of us here may be considered competitors but, on Wehl, we become cooperators because at the end of the day we’re all here to become better and to achieve the common mission of helping others live better. Besides, the saying is true, you never know when your greatest competitor might become your greatest collaborator. We all have something unique to offer and we can do more together, so we always act respectfully and with professionalism.
  • Do socially-conscious marketing - We want to model a “moderate” amount of social time and to enable this we focus more on quality than quantity when it comes to sharing. The social sharing aspect of Wehl has been deliberately designed to not include the complicated algorithms that require us to post several times per day to have a chance at getting noticed. Together, we practice the wehlness that we preach and participate mindfully to truly connect with each other!
  • Embrace the new way to do business - Together on Wehl, we want to develop real relationships, help others overcome real-life wehlness problems and decrease the barriers (e.g. time, money, support, etc.) to enable health for all. We believe that giving is the best kind of promotion strategy there is and that showing we care is the future of business! The new way to do business is to always use our power as a force for good.


Thanks for helping us make Wehl an inspiring place!
