Adolescence: Preparing for Lifelong Health and Wellness – YouTube

Published on Aug 21, 2015


Adolescence is a critical stage of development during which physical, intellectual, emotional, and psychological changes occur. While adolescence is a relatively healthy period of life, adolescents begin to make lifestyle choices and establish behaviors that affect both their current and future health. During this transition from childhood to adulthood, serious health and safety issues such as motor vehicle crashes, violence, substance use, and risky sexual behaviors can adversely affect adolescents and young adults. Parents have an important role in helping their adolescents stay healthy, but there are other influences on the choices adolescents make. Of the 42 million U.S. adolescents, age 10-19 years, 91% are enrolled in school, making schools and academic institutions an ideal place to foster lifelong healthy behaviors. Other community level interventions can also make the healthy choice the easy choice.

Health & Fitness: Body, Mind, & Soul (Spirit) Exercises

what is mind-body exercise? by Shirley Archer, JD, MA on Jun 01, 2004 ideafit.com
“…A Little History

The term mind-body exercise comes to the fitness industry from the field of mind-body medicine. According to the Mind/Body Medical Institute in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, mind-body medicine is based on the “inseparable connection between the mind and body—the complicated interactions that take place between thoughts, body and the outside world.” ..”

“..The Power of Mind Body Exercise

Although every kind of exercise or physical activity will most definitely help improve your mental health and well-being, there are certain kinds of physical activity that focus more on the mind and body than others. A weight training, swimming, running or cycling session is definitely beneficial to your overall physical and mental health. However activities like Yoga and tai chi are more aimed at exercising the mind and improving your mental health…”

Mind-Body Exercises & Heart Health my.clevelandclinic.org
“..The mind-body connection means that you can learn to use your thoughts to positively influence some of your body’s physical responses, thereby decreasing stress. If you recall a time when you were happy, grateful or calm, your body and mind tend to relax.

Research has shown that when you imagine an experience, you often have similar mental and physical responses to those you have when the event actually happens. For example, if you recall an upsetting or frightening experience, you may feel your heart beating faster, you may begin to sweat, and your hands may become cold and clammy.

Whether you have been diagnosed with an illness or need to prepare for a medical procedure such as surgery, it is very important to minimize the negative effects and maximize the healthy, healing aspects of your mind-body connection.

3. There is a focus on breathing and breath sounds.

Should Christian’s do Tai Chi? September 22, 2012 by bonlou hatchcreek.com
“..I believe the Holy Spirit made me uncomfortable with the idea, so I decided to look into what Tai Chi really is. I needed to make a decision based on more than just what the pretty flier told me and the enthusiasm of my friends. So, I did some research which I will share with you…

though it’s often called a “moving meditation” since the movements are done slowly and deliberately, and it is taught more as a meditative and health-enhancing practice than as a martial art. ..

There is no supreme God or Creator in Taoism; all originated from the Tao, which is an impersonal principle or source of creation…

It is easy to follow the crowd, but we are to test the spirits to see if they are from God. Well, I can see from my research that the spirit in Tai Chi is not from God. It is anti-Christian. Therefore, I should not get involved.

1 John 4:1 NASB Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

6 Reasons This Popular Meditation Trend Is Dangerous for Christians 6:00AM EDT 7/18/2016 Rosilind Jukic charismanews.com
“..How to engage in biblical meditation

The Lord spoke to Joshua and said this:

This Book of the Law must not depart from your mouth. Meditate on it day and night, that you may act carefully according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way successful, and you will be wise. Have not I commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Josh. 1:8-9).

The Hebrew word for meditate used here is hagah, meaning to speak, mutter, muse, imagine or plot.

Biblical meditation is the repeated speaking of the Word of God. It also involves imagining and using the mind to plan ways that we can implement the Word of God in our lives.

You do this by taking a passage of the Word and repeating it over to yourself, examining each word and imagining how it applies to your personal life.

As we begin to make biblical meditation a part of our daily Christian discipline, speaking, muttering the Word of God and imagining how we can mold our lives in concordance with it, we will see our lives transformed and the Lord promises that our “way will prosperous” and that we will “have good success.”

Do we believe the Word in this?..”

WARNINGS

Bad karma: When yoga harms instead of heals By Jennifer Wolff Perrine updated 7/15/2008 8:34:49 AM ET nbcnews.com
Inexperienced teachers and overeager students behind rise in injuries
“..Years of hunching over my computer had left me stiff, almost breakable. One false move — getting out of bed too quickly, tying my shoe — could lay me flat on a heating pad for days. Friends and family commented that my shoulders were rounding, my back curving, my chin protruding beyond my chest. Sometimes I’d see little old ladies hobbled over canes, their tiny bodies twisted and contorted, and I’d wonder, Will that be me?..

“In my practice, I’ve seen a significant increase in yoga injuries in the past five years,” says orthopedic surgeon Jeffrey Halbrecht, M.D., medical director for the Institute for Arthroscopy and Sports Medicine in San Francisco and a specialist in knee and hip problems. And it’s not only those in the recent wave of newbies who are getting hurt, Dr. Halbrecht says: “I’ve treated more experienced yogis than rookies.”..”
Yoga Injuries and Pain During Yoga Class – What’s the Story?
February 3, 2014 by Kara-Leah Grant theyogalunchbox.co.nz
“.. started yoga already injured, and with limited mobility. I’d already had one spinal fusion, and was on a fast track to a second – I had intense sciatic pain down my right leg, half of my right foot was numb and I was walking with a limp.

Within a year or so of starting yoga – a mixture of Bikram and Vinyasa – my symptoms had largely disappeared, although it took several years to regain full feeling back in my foot. It seemed yoga had healed me, where nothing else had worked.

The last year though, things have been different.

Eighteen months ago, carrying my 2.5 year old on my hip while doing a tour of Anahata Yoga Retreat – up and down uneven tracks – I aggravated my sciatic for the first time in years.

Since then, I’ve done about twenty Bikram Yoga classes and I have been in pain through all of them. I start the class pain free, but by the time we’re into the first posture – Half-Moon sidebends, back bend and forward bend – I’m in agony.

This is in contrast to my home practice where I’ve mostly been pain-free…”
Facing my fear: I used yoga to cope. Then an injury took away my lifeline Chrissy Auger Friday 3 June 2016 06.30 EDT theguardian.com
“..Yoga is admittedly self-serving, and westernized yoga is sometimes plagued with contradictions, like people meditating in $100 leggings, posing for sexy pictures instead of sinking into poses, and quietly competing to be the best at stretching. But since I wasn’t into any of that, I thought my practice was relatively pure, and that I was doing yoga for the right reasons: to gain clarity, strength and flexibility. I wanted to be mentally healthy and physically independent, and until recently, I was…

..but I didn’t realize in the moment that accepting a yoga challenge meant pushing myself there, too. Instead of accomplishing a goal I didn’t care about, I got hurt doing the thing I loved the most.

I still needed to balance against the wall to stay upright, so the day that I slipped, either from poor form or my ponytail, I didn’t exactly fall over. But when my weight came crashing down upon my head, my entire body started shaking, and I immediately knew something was terribly wrong. My instructor, who is also my friend, brushed it off, saying I would eventually be able to do the pose.

Instead, my entire world was turned upside down.

I went to see a spine surgeon, who gave me painkillers and a referral for an MRI. He was about my age, and during that first visit, we kidded around and called each other doctor, joking about my PhD. ..

From one moment of seeking inner peace gone awry, I had a herniated disc in my neck, two bulging cervical discs, and the pleasure of learning about some other degenerative surprises like arthritis and stenosis. ..

“..was born on December 9, 1883 in Mönchengladbach (near Düsseldorf), Germany. His father, a native of Greece, had been a prize-winning gymnast, while his German-born mother was a naturopath who believed in the principle of stimulating the body to heal itself without artificial drugs. No doubt his mother’s healing philosophy and father’s physical achievements greatly influenced Pilates’ later ideas on therapeutic exercise. ..”

Alexander Technique | FM Alexander Giving a Lesson

What is the Alexander Technique? alexandertechnique.com

“..is a way of learning to move mindfully through life. The Alexander process shines a light on inefficient habits of movement and patterns of accumulated tension, which interferes with our innate ability to move easily and according to how we are designed. It’s a simple yet powerful approach that offers the opportunity to take charge of one’s own learning and healing process, because it’s not a series of passive treatments but an active exploration that changes the way one thinks and responds in activity. It produces a skill set that can be applied in every situation. Lessons leave one feeling lighter, freer, and more grounded.” ..”

Transitioning Between Chi Walking and Chi Running Posted by Keith McConnell on Thu Nov 10th, 2011 chirunning.com
“..Briefly stated, the transition (or change) process from walking to running, or running to walking, is an individualized decision combined with some general principles and timing guidelines. First, it is key to pay attention to yourself, to “Body Sense” so that you are aware of your own energy as you decide to continue with what you are doing as opposed to making the transition: exertion level? heart rate? attitude? current form? And further, what’s going on around you: are you running or walking on level terrain, uphill, downhill? what point in your workout or race? personal goals? aid station coming up? how long have you been either walking or running?..”

Biblical Meditation

The Power of Meditation Enliven Health and Wellness April/May 2015 By: Sherrell Moore-Tucker faithandfitness.net
“..However, upon further research and good bible teaching I learned that God does in fact want us to meditate. Joshua 1:8 says,

“Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”

Now don’t get me wrong I was familiar with this scripture but I lacked the application of it in my life. ..

Christian Meditation

The scientific benefits of mediation are great but here’s where worldly mediation and Christian mediation differ, the focus. Christian meditation is essentially a form of prayer in which you ponder and reflect upon the revelations of God. Rick Warren, in The Purpose Driven Life describes meditation as “focused thinking”. God wants us to mediate on His Word day and night so therein lays the focus. If you are dealing with anxiety meditate upon 1 Peter 5:7 (NIV), “Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.” And just like prayer you can mediate anywhere. Mediation is even valuable during exercise. For example, you can turn your fitness routine into a moving mediation by focusing on 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.”..”
