What Is Wellness?
  • -Wellness is an active process of becoming aware
    of and making choices toward a more successful
    existence. - National Wellness Institute
  • -Wellness means constantly working to increase
    our expression of life, so we can maximally adapt
    to all of the physical, chemical and emotional
    stresses we encounter each day. And, as a
    result, we grow more than we die. Amherst

What Is Wellness? (cont.)
  • -Wellness refers generally to the state of being
    healthy, but by the late 20th century, became, as
    well, a description of the interest in the more
    affluent nations to adopt behaviors which prolong
    and enhance the state of being healthy, and by
    extension, the lifespan itself. - Word IQ
  • -Wellness is a healthy state of well-being free
    from disease physicians should be held
    responsible for the health of their patients.
    Webster Dictionary

of sickness to the prevention of sickness--or
diminishing the effects of sickness--by
emphasizing wellness (behaviors/choices).

    cure.

Health/Wellness Pyramid
YOUR BEST STARTING POINT!!!
Fitness, Exercise, Energy
Nutrition Food Supplements
Clean Air and Water
Sleep, Rest, Relaxation
14
Sleep, Rest, Relaxation
  • Sleep deprivation is widespread in America.
    According to the National Sleep Foundation, a
    majority of American adults experience frequent
    sleep problems.
  • Decreased sleep time or lack of restful sleep can
    compromise our immune system by as much as 50.
    It can lead to irritability, moodiness, inability
    to concentrate, decreased resistance to stress
    and other medical conditions.
  • There are sleep cycles. The first few cycles are
    associated with physical repair and restoration,
    and the last cycle, REM sleep is associated with
    brain repair and restoration.

15
Good Sleep Options
  • Get enough exercise during the day. Remember
    that 30-minute walk will make a difference.
  • Don't eat heavy foods near bedtime.
  • Do something relaxing like reading or taking a
    warm bath.
  • Don't watch TV programs or movies that are
    violent or upsetting right before you go to bed.
  • Keep your sleeping room well ventilated.
  • Finally, be more particular about what you sleep
    on.

16
Clean Air Water
  • Air quality - We have inversions in the Spokane
    area. It is a good idea to curtail outdoor
    activities during this time.
  • Smoking - Don't, and even if you did your lungs
    can improve dramatically even after years of
    abuse because the lung tissue regenerates.
  • Deep breathing - most of us don't breath deeply
    especially when we are nervous or anxious. Deep
    breathing ensures we get the full benefit of
    oxygen.
  • More. . .

17
Clean Air Options
  • Choose to walk, bike, share rides, or use public
    transit
  • Making sure our automobiles are properly
    maintained to avoid adding to the emissions
    already generated
  • Dont leave a vehicle idling for more than 30
    seconds
  • Keep our furnaces and other heating sources in
    good repair
  • Minimize our use of chemicals that end up
    airborne
  • Utilize good quality air filters to eliminate
    indoor air pollution.
  • More. . .

18
Clean Air Water (cont.)
  • Our bodies are 70 water. Our total body water
    is replaced about every 15 days. For our
    health's sake, we should be drinking 6 to 10
    eight-ounce glasses of clean water per day. If
    you're not doing this, you're probably
    dehydrated.
  • Dehydration symptoms are not just dry mouth and
    skin. They include headaches, sinus problems,
    joint discomfort, digestive problems, heart
    problems, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,
    stress, sleep disorders, depression, etc.
  • Chlorine used to purify water is toxic, as is the
    ozone used to purify most bottled water.

19
Clean Water Options
  • Choose filtered water that has a minimum (or no)
    contaminants.
  • Ensure filtered water contains necessary
    minerals. De-mineralized water leaches minerals
    from your body.
  • Drink filtered, mineralized water with a PH
    factor that is basic or alkaline.

20
Nutrition Food Supplements
  • Eat balanced - Most of us tend not to because
    we're harried and on the run.
  • Eat the freshest food available - Fruits and
    vegetables look good and there are a lot of them,
    but the vitamins and minerals they used to
    contain aren't there because our soil is
    depleted. Wash your produce well in clean,
    filtered water.
  • Take nutritional supplements Research,find the
    best ones, and take them daily.

21
Fitness, Exercise Energy
  • Fitness Exercise THE MAGIC BULLET????
    According to the chart below, in 2003 at least 39
    million Americans bet that fitness and exercise
    were at least an important part of the key to
    Good Health.

22
Fitness, Exercise Energy
  • Make Fitness Exercise an integral part of your
    Wellness Program, not the TOTAL SOLUTION.
    Remember you can look FIT and be SICK.

Your Wellness Options
  • When we choose the path in our lives that takes
    us towards health and wellness--and we reaffirm
    this choice daily-- we create the best possible
    chance we have to remain healthy, happy and
    productive throughout our life.
