Overview

Based on solid research, A Wellness Way of Life makes sense of the array of the confusing and sometimes contradictory health information that bombards us everyday. The authors minimize technical jargon and present health topics and issues in a clear and accessible way. A Wellness Way of Life gives you accurate, up-to-date information about exercise, nutrition, stress, heart disease, weight management, and much more. Knowledge is power, and A Wellness Way of Life empowers you with the knowledge you need to make smart health decisions.

New to this edition is a feature called “Think About It,” designed to give you practice in thinking critically, applying your knowledge, and writing about factors that influence your wellness. These activities appear in the book and as online activities that you can submit directly to your instructor.
