The Healthiest Couple                                      by William Carlyon

 They are slim and attractive well-dressed         This place is reserved for those
     and just fun. They are strong and             without sin."

Concept: Lifestyle
  The health problems that face our nation
  are, in large measure, the result of
  lifestyle decisions. The leading causes
  of premature death and illness in the US
  could be prevented through
  positive lifestyle habits.

  The individual can do more for their well-
  being than any doctor, hospital, drug or
  exotic medical device.
            What does this Mean?
Leading Causes of Death-U.S.
 The top three leading causes of death in the
   US are:
  Heart Disease
  Cancer
  Stroke
   And are mostly attributed to American’s
   lifestyle which includes poor nutrition,
   lack of physical activity, alcohol, and
   tobacco use.

  Why Do Women Live Longer Than Men
Prevention: The Foundation of Wellness

                   Primary prevention avoids the
                    development of a disease. Most
                    population-based health promotion
                    activities are primary preventive
                   Secondary prevention activities are
                    aimed at early disease detection,
                    thereby increasing opportunities for
                    interventions to prevent progression of
                    the disease and emergence of
                   Tertiary prevention reduces the
                    negative impact of an already
                    established disease by restoring
                    function and reducing disease-related

The Riddle: Who am I?
  I am your constant companion. I am         I am not a machine,
  your greatest helper or heaviest           though I work with all the
  burden. I will push you onward or          precision of a machine
  drag you down to failure. I am             plus the intelligence of a
  completely at your command. Half the       human. You may run me
  things I do you might as well turn over    for profit or run me for ruin
  to me and I will be able to do them        – it, makes no difference
  quickly and correctly.                     to me.
  I am easily managed - you must             Take me, train me, be firm
  merely be firm with me. Show me            with me, and I will place
  exactly how you want something done        the world at your feet. Be
  and after a few lessons I will do it       easy with me and I will
  automatically. I am the servant of all     destroy you.
  great individuals and, alas, of all
  failures as well. Those who are great, I
  have made great. Those who are             Who am I?
  failures, I have made failures.

 Causes of Death      Risk Factors
 Are You Living a "Healthy Lifestyle?"
    Reeves & Rafferty studied health practices
    of >150,000 Americans…. as adhering to
    four behavioral patterns:
       Nonsmoking
       Regular physical activity (30 or more minutes per day
        at least 5 times a week)
       Consumption of 5 or more servings of fruits and
        vegetables a day
       Maintenance of a healthy weight with a body mass
        index (BMI) in the range of 18.5-25.0

In the study only 3% of the surveyed American met 4 tenets of a healthy lifestyle.
Attitude       by Charles Swindell

―The longer I live The more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me, is more important than the past, than education, than
money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what
other people think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make
or break an organization, a school, a home. The remarkable thing is
we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace
for that day.

We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact that people
will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play the string we have, and that is our
attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in
charge of our attitude!‖
