The purpose of A Wellness Way of Life is to help you pursue your wellness potential by providing you with a road map for this exciting journey. The road map includes two essential components: (1) knowledge, and (2) tools for action. The authors have sorted through the array of confusing and sometimes contradictory health information to provide information that is based on solid research. To make lifestyle changes, you need to take knowledge and move into action. A Wellness Way of Life sets the stage for this by providing many useful tools for action so you can apply the information to your everyday life.
