...Personal Wellness 6-6-13 Instructor: In summarizing what i've gleaned from this class, to me personal wellness is taking responsibility for you and your families health, by adopting healthy thoughts and behaviors through the seven dimensions of health: Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Physical, Occupational, and Environmental. Also the three types of prevention, primary, secondary, and tertiary are important for improving our life from disease and injury. Changing behaviors, setting goals to achieve and live a healthy lifestyle and keeping these dimensions in perspective takes constant effort. There has to be an inbetween in prevention where you can still enjoy a bacon cheeseburger and not feel regret about the fat content or the calories you just ate. Not only do we have to worry about the affects of the burger on our health but we have to worry about weather or not we can still fit into our namebrand jeans without having a muffintop. It's not only the social "guilt bludgening" we get every day but their is a factual personal guilt that we tend to pour onto ourselves thats probably from the media trained mind set we have come to know as the "normal". After looking at my life and at others around me I get the feeling that everyone sincerely whants to be happy but have been generaly "trained" to live in a constant state of confusion of how to be happy. We should look at what really makes ourselves and the people around us happy. there is a......

...Wellness is the integration of states of physical, mental and spiritual well-being. Wellness is composed of seven dimensions that include social, emotional, spiritual, environmental, vocational, intellectual and physical wellness. Each of these dimensions act and interact in a way that contributes to own quality of life. Some of the dimensions of wellness in my life I value higher than other, but I also value some very closely. Also, at times many of these are interconnected with one another. The dimension that I value the highest is spiritual wellness. My family has always stressed upon following the Catholic way of life and having good morals and values. The three other dimensions of wellness that I value very similarly are intellectual, physical and social wellness. I am always willing and excited to learn new concepts, improve skills and seek challenges that will allow me to become a great future Health and Physical Education teacher. As a competitive runner for Rowan University, living a healthy lifestyle and having high physical fitness are vital in order to be a successful.

...Health and Wellness in Native North America It is true that many of the old ways have been lost. But just as the rains restore the earth after a drought, so the power of the Great Mystery will restore the way and give it new life. We ask that this happen not just for the Red People, but for all people, that they all might live. Black Elk, Oglala, Sioux Contemporary health status of American Indians can be best viewed through the lens of various federal policies enacted over the past 500 years. These policies were developed largely in response to dramatic population losses among the indigenous peoples of America, resulting from genocidal actions of military campaigns, the lack of immunity to the diseases that accompanied European colonizers, and the assimilation efforts that destroyed tribal structures and wellness practices. Medical services were first coordinated through army physicians in the Department of War in an effort to control the spread of diseases from early reservation sites placed on or near military forts. By the twentieth century, the rapid decline of the Indigenous population, documented by the “Meriam Report” of 19281 prompted new assimilation efforts to save the first Americans. Healthcare services were re-coordinated within the Bureau of Indian Affairs and then into the Public Health Service, finally resting within the Federal Indian Health Service (IHS). Assimilation policies, however, proved to be highly destructive resulting in......

After 90 days, applicants successful in quitting will be encouraged to reapply.” Existing personnel are not covered by this policy. The Clinic continues to offer existing personnel extensive support and guidance to quit using tobacco. Use of Tobacco by Employees One has to recognize that some people enjoy tobacco.

...on the wellness [gym] industry and then propose a marketing campaign for them to reach the target market, identified for them. Origins of Wellness Wellness principles and practices are in no way a modern development. Wellness has a long, ancient tradition and body of knowledge behind it. Traditions relating to health, healing, and the concept of wellness can be traced back to a number of ancient civilizations across the globe. Some of these include: Greek and Roman bathing, the Arabian use of medicinal plants and minerals, traditional Chinese medicine (commonly referred to as “TCM”), and Indian Ayurvedic practices. Numerous societies and cultures have developed their own interpretations of medicine, massage, psychological well-being, and other approaches to healing over the years, several of which have played a role in informing our current understanding and practice of wellness (Zimmer, 2010). As a modern concept, wellness has gained currency since the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, through the writings and leadership of a number of thinkers and physicians mostly from the United States, who have largely shaped the way we conceptualize and talk about wellness today (SRI International, 2010). Definition of Wellness There are a number of well-thought-out definitions of wellness, developed over time by the foremost intellectuals in the field.

...Raquel White Ms. DeCandia Red 090.002 January 31, 2011 Health and Wellness Health is the absence of illness, injury or disease. Wellness is the pursuit of your best possible health and well-being. Wellness means the ability to do the things you want to do. That well-being is not just physical health. Wellness is an overall balance of your physical, social, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, environmental, and occupational well-being. Health refers simply to a physical body being free from diseases. Health is a goal one can achieve while wellness is a dynamic concept that continues for a lifetime. Wellness means that one strives for balance throughout his whole life. On the other hand, health would be that a person wants to lose weight and lower blood pressure. Once he does this, he is considered healthy. Wellness is a way to complete the person, a person with ability to live and take action. Health might be an absence of symptoms but with wellness, you have energy, your body is functioning at an optimal level. You can condition yourself to allow higher levels of health. Health is a progression of conditioning your body. As you achieve these higher levels you are working into a state of wellness. In my case, I feel that I practice wellness. In the past four years I have managed to lose 150 pounds, lower my blood pressure, and overall feel better about myself.
