  • The Teenage years can be full of ups and downs.
    Sometimes all of the changes that come your way
    can be overwhelming. Living a healthy lifestyle
    is one way to cope with all of these changes.
    There are many different areas of wellness that
    will help you live a healthy lifestyle. The four
    areas of wellness that we will focus on for this
    project are physical wellness, social wellness,
    emotional wellness, and spiritual wellness. By
    paying attention to these four areas of wellness,
    you can bring balance to your life.

  • 1.The state of being immune from or insusceptible
    to a particular disease or the like.
  • 2.The condition that permits either natural or
    acquired resistance to disease.
  • 3.The ability of a cell to react immunologically
    in the presence of an antigen.

  • Natural active Occurs during infection. It is
    active because lymphocytes are activated by
    antigens on pathogen's surface.
  • Artificial active Injecting or taking antigens
    by mouth. Takes time for T and B cells to be
    activated but gives long lasting immunity.
  • Natural passive Mother to child through placenta
    or milk.
  • Artificial passive Used during potentially fatal
    diseases. Provides an instant response but only
    temporary as antibodies are not the body's own so
    memory cells are not created. E.g. tetanus -
    injection of antitoxins given.
  • Memory cells are only produced in active
    immunity.Protection for active immunity is
    permanent whereas in passive immunity it is only
    temporary.Antigens are only encountered in
    active immunity.Active immunity takes several
    weeks to become active but passive is immediate

What is Emotional Wellness?
  • Emotional wellness focuses on how you feel and
    how in tune you are with your own emotions. When
    you are in emotional balance, you feel at peace
    with yourself. You know your own capabilities and
    limitations, and you can cope with a healthy
    amount of stress in your life. You have a good
    relationship with yourself and with others around
    you. Relationships with others will have a strong
    foundation based on mutual trust and respect. The
    emotionally healthy individual has a strong sense
    of self, and remains true to him or herself while
    still being open to the ideas and opinions of
    others. Emotional health is about knowing
    yourself and your feelings. It is important to be
    emotionally healthy because it will promote
    happiness, positive feelings about yourself and
    your surroundings, and an overall sense of
    optimism. Emotional health is not one specific
    definition, but a continuum of qualities and
    behaviors. Emotional health is only one part of
    being a balanced and healthy individual.
    Physical, social, and spiritual health are just a
    few of the other parts of the puzzle that makes a
    person whole. Emotional Wellness is the ability
    to control stress and to express emotions
    appropriately and comfortably."

What is Social Wellness?
  • The social health of individuals refers to "that
    dimension of an individual's well-being that
    concerns how he gets along with other people, how
    other people react to him, and how he interacts
    with social institutions and societal mores"
    (Russell 1973, p. 75). This definition is
    broadit incorporates elements of personality and
    social skills, reflects social norms, and bears a
    close relationship to concepts such as
    "well-being," "adjustment," and "social
  • The social component of wellness means having the
    ability to interact successfully with people and
    one's personal environment."

What is Social Wellness? Cont.
  • Physical Wellness The physical component of
    wellness involves the ability to carry out daily
    tasks, develop cardiorespiratory and muscular
    fitness, maintain adequate nutrition and a
    healthy body fat level, and avoid abusing alcohol
    and other drugs or using tobacco products."
  • Spiritual Wellness Spirituality is the way you
    find meaning, hope, comfort and inner peace in
    your life. Many people find spirituality through
    religion. Some find it through music, art or a
    connection with nature. Others find it in their
    values and principles.
  • The spiritual component of wellness provides
    meaning and direction in life and enables you to
    grow, learn, and meet in new challenges."

How is spirituality related to health?
  • No one really knows for sure how spirituality is
    related to health. However, it seems the body,
    mind and spirit are connected. The health of any
    one of these elements seems to affect the health
    of the others. Some research shows that things
    such as positive beliefs, comfort and strength
    gained from religion, meditation and prayer can
    contribute to healing and a sense of well-being.
    Improving your spiritual health may not cure an
    illness, but it may help you feel better, prevent
    some health problems and help you cope with
    illness, stress or death.

How can I improve my spiritual health?
  • If you want to improve your spiritual health, you
    may want to try the following ideas. However,
    remember that everyone is different, so what
    works for others may not work for you. Do what is
    comfortable for you.
  • Identify the things in your life that give you a
    sense of inner peace, comfort, strength, love and
  • Set aside time every day to do the things that
    help you spiritually. These may include doing
    community service or volunteer work, praying,
    meditating, singing devotional songs, reading
    inspirational books, taking nature walks, having
    quiet time for thinking, doing yoga, playing a
    sport or attending religious services.

Letters cont.
  • Letter 3
  • Dear Balanced Billy, I am a 15 yr old student in
    the 10th grade and recently I have been so
    stressed over school. I always have tons of
    homework and studying to do each night and on top
    of that I have an after-school job at the local
    video store in town. Also, it seems like I never
    have any time for my friends or even myself. At
    the end of the day, I hardly have any energy, I'm
    never hungry, and I can hardly sleep. Do you have
    any advice for me to get my life under control?
  • Stressed out Sam
  • Letter 4
  • Dear Wellness Wendy, I am writing this to you
    because I do not know what to do. Lately I dont
    know who my real friends are. I thought that my
    best friend and I would be best friends forever,
    but she/he is starting to hang out with some kids
    that I dont like very much. She/he has changed
    so much that I dont even recognize this person
    anymore! I dont really want to change to act
    like his/her new friends, but I dont want to
    lose this person either! It seems like my friend
    doesnt even want to give me the time of day
    anymore! Dont they remember how much fun we used
    to have together? This is starting to really hurt
    my feelings! Why does everything have to be so
    different now? Also, I am NOT getting along very
    well with my parents. I dont think they
    understand how hard it is to be me. They are
    always bugging me about what I am doing, when I
    just want to be left alone! Help! I feel like my
    life is starting to fall apart, and I dont know
    what to do!Bummed out Bobby
