Wellness and Personal Development

Welcome to our Wellness topic area, which is all about how people can enhance the quality of their lives and avoid serious illness by making simple but sometimes surprisingly difficult changes to their lifestyles. Wellness is a broad topic that includes disease prevention (the taking of steps to avoid getting ill at a future date), stress reduction, and even personal, social and spiritual growth.

  • To my mind, Yoga works best for people who are anxious or depressed or frantic or impulsive or obsessional and who are looking for stress relief, self-soothing and a calm way to get in some gentle exercise.
  • Eating well and being physically active are key to your child's well-being. Eating too much and exercising too little can lead to overweight and related health problems that can follow children into their adult years.
  • Because children grow at different rates at different times, it is not always easy to tell if a child is overweight. If you think that your child is overweight, talk to your health care provider.
