Wellness Streams

The following four (4) Wellness Streams, FNHA suggests you use to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

A great way to set goals in these areas is to ask yourself what you would like to achieve this year in terms of your physical activity, healthy eating, nurturing spirit, and respectful tobacco use? 

Feel like you have no time to exercise? Remember, every minute of activity counts. Consider trying some of these tips:

  • Walk to work instead of drive
  • Keep a pair of walking shoes at work
  • Keep clothes you need for a workout in your car
  • Keep hand weights near your television or phone

Nutrition is the foundation in maintaining good health. Here are some nutrition tips for health and wellness:

  • Enjoy what you eat
  • Eat foods close to nature
  • Be prepared
  • Plan for healthy snacks
  • Choose a variety of foods
  • Have more family meals
  • Reduce refined sugars
  • Practice mindful eating

Nurturing spirit is the aspect in your life that gives you a sense of purpose and meaning. This builds your self-esteem, self-confidence and allows you to be connected to others and the land. Nurturing your spirit supports the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of your being.

No matter how long you have been smoking or chewing commercial
tobacco, your health will start to improve when you quit. Please visit www.fnha.ca/respectingtobacco to learn all about our quitting resources and tobacco-related initiatives.

Holistic Wellness

This image has been derived from a holistic perspective of health, and its concepts are based on the knowledge passed along by FNHA’s Elders and traditional healers. Although the model appears in layers, it is important to acknowledge that each circle and its components are all interconnected and need to be in balance.
