To many people, being healthy means being physically healthy. This well known dimension, even though not the only one, is very important. I try to keep my physical wellness up by keeping a balanced diet, and exercising regularly. An activity that I have been participating my whole life in is dance. I feel that dance is an activity that produces endurance, flexibility, and strength as the above definition says. Physical wellness also involves getting enough sleep, dealing with stress, and making smart and safe decisions. All of these things are very important in keeping up my physical wellness.

Needham High School is a culture, and in it there are many subcultures. I believe the most distinct and large subculture that exists at Needham High School is sport teams. People associate and are friends with those who participate in the same activities as them. I myself am especially close with the girls I dance with, and I most of the girls I consider my best friends are those who I have been dancing with throughout my life.

Intellectual wellness involves the interest in learning new things, and being open minded on different situations in the world. This includes being updated on current events, the T.V. shows I choose to watch, reading a good amount of books, my enjoyment of playing mind-stimulating games such as different card games and clue, and reading a variety of material. This dimension also emphasizes an importance in seeing both sides to issues, which I think is extremely important and try to always do in my life. One last thing that I believe is important to my intellectual wellness is that I value my education, and feel it is very important in life and for a future carreer.

The intellectual dimension relates well to the locus of control. One can either have an interanal or external…...

The Creed of the Specialist

...The creed of the Specialist No one gets away with more than I. I am a non Non-Commissioned Officer, a beast of burden. As a junior enlisted soldier I realize that I am a member of an under appreciated, much chastised group of soldiers which is known as the ribcage, or perhaps pancreas, of the Army. I am proud of myself and my fellow Specialists and will continue to bitch, whine and sham until the absolute last second regardless of the mission at hand. I will use my grade and position to avoid responsibility, accountability and any sense of presence of mind. Ignorance is my watchword. My two best excuses will always be on the tip of my tongue "I didn't know," and "It wasn't me." I will strive to remain invisible and unavailable for details. Never ever volunteer for anything is my rallying cry. I am aware of my role as a SPC and if you need me for anything, I'll be on appointment. I know the other soldiers, and I will always refer to them by their first name or in some cases derogatory nickname. On weekends, or days off I will consistently drink myself into oblivion, and I will never answer my phone. I understand that for a person in my hierarchal position, rewards are going to be few and far between, and punishment will always be swift and severe. Officers of my unit will have maximum time to accomplish their duties, because I will be accomplishing them for them. I will kiss up to their face and badmouth them behind their back, just like everyone else. I will be...

...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.

...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......

...WELLNESS AND THE CLEVELAND CLINIC’S NICOTINE TESTING IN PRE- EMPLOYMENT PHYSICALS By Asbjorn Osland and Pamela Wells Department of Organization & Management College of Business San José State University “As a leading healthcare organization dedicated to fighting disease and advocating healthy living, our policies and procedures must reflect that commitment,” said Delos M. “Toby” Cosgrove, M.D. CEO and President of Cleveland Clinic. “Having banned smoking from our campuses and launched a communitywide program to promote smoking cessation, incorporating Cotinine testing is a natural extension of our efforts to highlight the perils of tobacco use.” The Cleveland Clinic informs applicants when they apply for work that those that “applicants who test positive for tobacco products will not be considered for employment and will be referred to tobacco cessation resources paid for by Cleveland Clinic. 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. Standing outside with a group of friends smoking during a break provides camaraderie. Pacing one’s actions throughout the day by indulging in a smoke break is pleasurable for many. Smoking also satisfies one’s oral needs that may otherwise be met by......

The novel, The Body of Christopher Creed demonstrates different people bullying other human beings for no good reason. Renee Bowen, Alex Arrington, and most importantly, Mrs. Creed are examples of bullying used in the novel; each uses different types of bullying.

When Renee meets Ali at the WaWa; Renee gets up in Ali’s face and bullies her by calling her and her mom sluts because of the rumors she started. This is evident as Torey states, “Your stupid sex life makes it a problem where you stay!” Renee hollered. “I didn’t cause your legendary rep, Ali! You caused it! If people think you’re a slut, that’s because you practically begged them to! My dad told me about your mother. Well, guess what? You’re no better.” (Plum- Ucci, 207) Renee also surprisingly bullies Bo Richardson.

...replaced by fast and processed food diets. Children no longer walk to school nor play outside but instead ride cars and buses and result to sitting and playing internet games (letsmove.gov/learn-facts/epidemic-childhood-obesity). The Let’s Move article states: “Everyone has a role to play in reducing childhood obesity, including parents, elected officials from all levels of government, schools, health care professionals, faith-based and community-based organizations, and private sector companies. Your involvement is key to ensuring a healthy future for our children.” This article relates to “wellness coaching” because all humans could benefit from being healthier and “moving”. Many wellness client will probably be parents and making themselves accountable to living a wellness lifestyle will whole heartily effect the well-being of their children’s health. As quoted in the article “wellness” pertains to all sectors of the community and is a community effort to assist with the “reducing childhood obesity”…The Country’s (U.S.A) future depends on it. Faith based organization should be heavily involved in this initial for its entire congregation. This would honor God and as it would be working in alignment with God’s values. “God values His rightful authority over all things, including our bodies (Alban, Jr. 2012)”.

Wellness Industry

...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. However, there is still no universally accepted definition of the word wellness (SRI International, 2010). The National Wellness......

Attached is the report on the implementation of corporate wellness programs. Due to rising health benefit costs and a rising number of health benefit claims, you requested that I investigate the implementation of corporate wellness programs as a way to reduce company costs.

Athanasian Creed

...The Athanasian Creed, or Quicunque Vult (also Quicumque Vult), is a Christian statement of belief focused on Trinitarian doctrine and Christology. The Latin name of the creed, Quicunque vult, is taken from the opening words, "Whosoever wishes". The creed has been used by Christian churches since the sixth century. It is the first creed in which the equality of the three persons of the Trinity is explicitly stated. It differs from the Nicene-Constantinopolitan and Apostles' Creeds in the inclusion of anathemas, or condemnations of those who disagree with the creed (like the original Nicene Creed). Widely accepted among Western Christians, including the Roman Catholic Church and some Anglican churches, Lutheran churches (it is considered part of the Lutheran confessions in the Book of Concord), and ancient, liturgical churches generally, the Athanasian Creed has been used in public worship less and less frequently, but part of it can be found as an "Authorized Affirmation of Faith" in the recent (2000) Common Worship liturgy of the Church of England [Main Volume page 145].[1][2] The creed has never gained much acceptance in liturgy among Eastern Christians. It was designed to distinguish Nicene Christianity from the heresy of Arianism. Liturgically, this Creed was recited at the Sunday Office of Prime in the Western Church; it is not in common use in the Eastern Church. Today, the Athanasian Creed is rarely used even in the Western Church. When used, one common practice is......

The Body of Christopher Creed Essay

...The Body of Christopher Creed Essay By: BigJ38 Nobody really found out what happened to Christopher Creed, because there was no real evidence. Now a theory I have of what happened to Chris, was in Chris's note that he wrote to Mr. Ames, said "Dear Mr. Ames, I have a problem getting along with people. I know that people wish I were dead, and at this moment in time I see no alternative but to accommodate them in this wish. I have a wish. Not that anybody cares, but if anybody cared over the years, it was you. Here is my wish. I wish that I had been born somebody else.” He put names of people he wished to be like Mike Healy, Jose DeSantos, Tommy Ide, Evan Lucenti, Victor (Torey) Adams, and Alex Arrington. When Torey makes the website in search of Chris, the reply that seemed a lot like Chris must have been him. For one it had way too many details of what could have happened to him too many for an outsider to know. And for another, in Chris's note he listed Torey Adams as somebody he wishes he was born as. So the note that made him believe it was Creed was signed "Victor Adams." I think that Chris "killed" the person he was and didn't want to be that night in the woods when he MUST HAVE dug up his treasure because why else would his map be out there. So once he got far enough away he change his name to the person he most admired (obviously Torey) and tried to attain the traits that he liked most about the people he listed in his note. This is what I think......
