What is “wellness?” A healthy lifestyle leaves a person fit, energetic and at reduced risk for disease. Good nutrition, daily exercise and adequate sleep are essentials for good health. Managing stress in positive ways, keeping your mind active – these components define wellness, but there are more!
Cedarfield residents have been working with staff, offering suggestions and ideas to develop the existing wellness program. While effective, everyone agreed it was time to expand it. The Pathways to Wellness initiative was introduced, which now includes nine components – Strength and Endurance, Creative Expression, Intellectual Growth, Spirituality, Emotional Balance, Community Outreach, Dining/Diet and Nutrition, Social Connections and Brain Fitness. Staff plan programming to be equally balanced, supporting all components for a healthy lifestyle!
