  WELLNESS INFORMATION

“Wellness” has become a buzz word in modern vocabulary . . . traditionally it was thought of as the absence of disease and disabilities.

In recent years there has grown to be a new thinking in this arena which has lead to developing new models of health and wellness which move beyond the traditional thinking to optimal functioning of each individual regardless of current health status or disability.

One of my favorite definitions comes from Dr. Don Ardell of the University of Buffalo:

   Wellness is first and foremost a choice to assume responsibility
   for the quality of your life. It begins with a conscious decision to
   shape a healthy lifestyle. Wellness is a mind set, a predisposition
   to adopt a series of key principles in varied life areas that lead to
   high levels of well being and life satisfaction.

   A consequence of this focus is that a wellness mind set will
   protect you against temptations to blame someone else, make
   excuses, shirk accountability, whine or wet your pants in the face
   of adversity.

Wellness Lifestyles has become the embodiment of the key principles which fit into body mind and spirit:

  •Physical Wellness — to build a fit and healthy body
  •Mental/Intellectual/and Emotional Wellness — through life
   counseling to assist in guiding people into lives of purpose
  •Spiritual Wellness — to assist people into a space of living life
   consciously
