I’m starting another blog specifically for posting about logging my calories and activities. Here’s the link: joyswellbeing. That way, I won’t clog up this blog with a bunch of boring stuff just to attempt to keep myself accountable. It’s called joyswellbeing right now, but if you have a better name, let me know.
At the end of last semester, all faculty and staff received an e-mail inviting us to participate in The Well Being Way. Here’s a brief description:
What is the Well-Being Way?
Scientific studies show that well-being is the single most important factor influencing long-term health. People who optimize their well-being are more likely to engage in and stay with exercise, eat foods that energize them, sleep better, and do healthy things to continually fuel and refuel their well-being. The WBW engages the participants in a variety of group experiences that when combined with facilitator debriefing enhances well-being, which leads to transformation of one's mind, body, and spirit.
I decided, what the heck, I’ll try it and was picked at random for one of the trial Well Being Way groups. It’s not an exercise program or healthy eating program, it’s more about learning how you feel and how you want to feel to help adjust how you exercise, eat, sleep, and relate to others. This is an eight week program, so you’ll hear updates from time to time about the Well Being Way.
