Dimensions of Wellness

Wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth which encompasses many interrelated dimensions including physical, emotional, financial, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, and occupational. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum holistic health. Integrating health and wellness programs into your daily schedule can drastically improve all aspects of your life.  Check out the UC Wellbeing Channel to view up-to-date video's from the latest research on well-being.

Resistance Band videos:

  • https://youtu.be/Ydtk5n_TBhc This is an exercise that strengthens shoulder and core strength to cut down on neck and shoulder strength.  She uses a band with handles, but you can use your theraband and simply wrap the ends around your hands.
  • https://youtu.be/I-H3HPA279w This video gives more general arm options.  She sits on ball, but you can do it in your desk chair.  I love her directions in regards to posture.
  • https://youtu.be/zah-Extt3DE This is a great core workout that I feel can be done in the office.  Again, please pay attention to her cues on form to protect your back!
