What is Wellness?

Wellness is optimal health and vitality.

Wellness is the loving acceptance of yourself.

Wellness is a way of life – a lifestyle you design to achieve your highest potential for wellbeing.

Wellness is the integration of many different components (social, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical) that expand one’s potential to live (quality of life) and work effectively and to make a significant contribution to society.

Wellness is a process – a developing awareness that there is no end point, but that health and happiness are possible in each moment, here and now.

Understanding Behavior

Triadic Reciprocal Causation

  • Implications of accepting a triadicreciprocal causation perspective:
  • Cognitions (i.e., self-efficacy) are assumed to play a role in behavior
  • Learn through the consequences of own actions
  • An individual’s beliefs can be influenced by external environmental factors

Self-Efficacy

  • ‘Unless people believe they can produce desired effects by their actions, they have little incentive to act. Efficacy belief, therefore, is a major basis for action’
  • Self-Efficacy‘Beliefs in one’s capabilities to organize and execute courses of action required to produce given attainments’

10 000 steps
10,000 steps?
  • Where did it come from?
  • NOT for everyone
    • Older adults, chronic diseased populations
    • Those with 3500-5500 steps/day on average.
    • Children
      • 11,000 steps/day for girls
      • 13,000 steps/day for boys
  • Some individuals can accumulate 30-minutes of moderate intensity activity with fewer than 10,000 steps/day
  • Any benefits to the 10,000 step goal?

GOAL SETTING

  • Self-determined goal setting is recommended
    • 1 week of baseline
    • Personal goals
    • 30 min of walking = ~3000-4000 steps
    • 1 mile = ~2000 steps
  • Effort-adherence tradeoff
