    10 : Sport Books Publisher 10 Achievement of Health and Wellness Not a single event, it is an ongoing process Making healthy choices (e.g., good nutrition) are important guidelines to consider vs.
    11 : Sport Books Publisher 11 Achievement of Health and Wellness Ultimately, it is up to each individual to choose what combination of healthy choices create a healthy balance for them Remember, do things in moderation. Too much or too little of anything is a potential problem E.g. Too little exercise=poor cardiovascular health Too much exercise=weakened immune system
    12 : Sport Books Publisher 12 Approaches to Health and Wellness Reactive or curative approach Worrying about your health only when sick. Not asserting control over your health in the absence of disease. Chris’ approach: “If your sick, take a few pills; otherwise, have fun and enjoy yourself! I’ll quit smoking later.” Example:
    13 : Sport Books Publisher 13 Approaches to Health and Wellness Proactive approach Adopting lifestyle habits that, in the long run, will enable you to lead a more healthy life.

    16 : Sport Books Publisher 16 Family Influences on Health and Wellness
    17 : Sport Books Publisher 17 Positive Family Influences Family positively influences your health, well-being, and a general sense of satisfaction through: Education The advice your parents give you to stay healthy E.g. “Wear a coat outside or you’ll catch a cold” Values Family values can influence lifestyle choices E.g. Families that value physical activity introduce their children to sports at early age. Support E.g. Emotional support during stressful life events E.g. Financial and mental support to pursue sports that will enable optimal development
    18 : Sport Books Publisher 18 Negative Family Influences Alternatively, family can have negative influences on one’s health E.g. Families that push their children to compete for rewards outside of the physical, mental, social, and spiritual benefits of activity, can cause their children to withdraw prematurely from participating in physical activity Example: Parent Sideline Rage Aggressive parents are poor role models for their children
    19 : Sport Books Publisher 19 Media Influences on Health and Wellness
    20 : Sport Books Publisher 20 Positive Media Messages Media messages can be highly motivational: E.g. Sports coverage in the media has created role models that can motivate children to pursue physical activity
    21 : Sport Books Publisher 21 Negative Media Messages Unfortunately, media also has to power to encourage unhealthy choices: E.g. Commercialization of the body image has distorted interpretation of healthy body
    22 : Sport Books Publisher 22 Ideal Female Body Image
    23 : Sport Books Publisher 23 The Reality Behind the Image
    24 : Sport Books Publisher 24 Negative Media Messages Further, media has distorted interpretation of what it means to be an accomplished performer. Media coverage has some believe that the pinnacle of achievement comes from beating the competition, being the toughest, and gaining multi-million contracts. However, wellness is about the journey towards personal improvement and aspiring to achieve your individual potential.
    25 : Sport Books Publisher 25 It’s Up To You! In conclusion, images of the sporting life can be motivational or cause unhealthy distortions. Ultimately, it is up to each individual to judge these images in relation to his or her personal goals and values.
    26 : Sport Books Publisher 26 Social/Peer Influences on Health and Wellness
    27 : Sport Books Publisher 27 Social/Peer Influences Participation in sport comes with social benefits incurred in meeting new people As we have seen in Chris’ example peer influences can be of negative nature. Therefore, it is important to: Choose friends wisely Resist negative peer pressure
    28 : Sport Books Publisher 28 Cultural Influences on Health and Wellness
    29 : Sport Books Publisher 29 Health in North America Views about health are understood differently across cultures. North Americans tend to think about disease from a scientific point of view. Western medicine deals largely with treatment of organs and systems, in isolation from the person’s mind and environment. Increasingly, a more holistic approach is emerging. E.g. Recognition of the influence of personality on cardiovascular health E.g. Recognition of the influence of environment on obesity
    30 : Sport Books Publisher 30 Health In Eastern and Aboriginal Cultures In many non-western cultures, health has a strong spiritual quality. Therefore, disease is understood in terms of individual’s spiritual harmony with oneself and/or his or her environment. e.g., Aboriginal culture and sweat lodge e.g., Oriental culture and chi
    31 : Sport Books Publisher 31 Putting It All Together Health is multidimensional One must make informed decision that relate to all the various dimensions of health Perspectives and decisions about health are influenced by family, peers, media, and the culture The journey towards health is lifelong
