A-7: “Well, Well, What do you Know” by Leigh Pozas

We’ve all heard that if you’ve got your health, you’ve got everything.  That is certainly true, but what is health really?  What is wellness?  Wellness is actually an absence of illness.  Health may have a different meaning for everyone.  While being without illness, or not being sick is certainly a positive, there is more to life than “not being sick”.  Productivity, not only in the workplace, but in the rest of life increases significantly as health and wellbeing increase. With the internet, social media, and other traditional public platforms preaching all kinds of quick fixes and changing the message about health faster than a speeding bullet, it is easy to get confused about what really is good for us and what is being marketed to us as good, which really isn’t. This session will be a fun and interactive journey that will challenge some traditional wisdom about what is healthy, what is well, and what is unhealthy.  Be prepared to be surprised, to learn, and to leave with the knowledge it takes to live the best life possible.
