Wellness Your Way™at the PJCC

Welcome to the PJCC’s Wellness Your Way™, an integrated approach to help youth and adults of all ages experience greater well-being. Wellness Your Way™ helps you identify your own, unique personal wellness formula and create a plan to put that formula to work in your life.

When we say “wellness formula”, we mean the activities you do on a regular basis that contribute positively to: your health, emotional resilience, energy to be active, ability to heal and to prevent injury and disease, joy, nurturing relationships, cultural and spiritual fulfillment.

Your personal wellness formula serves your whole life, and it is unique to you. Your formula includes Nourish, Move and Engage activities that are the building blocks of a life well-lived.

For example, your formula for living your best life may include aqua exercise, mindfulness meditation, bridge games with your friends, art appreciation, yoga, and a plant-based diet.

Or you may thrive on personal training, TRX, Family Gym on Sunday with your kids, and Jewish holiday celebrations shared with PJCC friends and family.

Whatever your personal wellness formula, we’ve got the right mix for a balance of body, mind, and spirit.

Nourish

  • What foods nourish you? How often do you eat them?
  • What’s the overall quality of the food you eat?
  • Are you happy with your relationship with food?
  • What might you like to change or heal?
  • Do you incorporate spa services into your wellness formula?
  • How might regular massage serve your body, mind, and spirit?
  • What is one Nourish commitment you can make today and stick with for the next 10 days?

Move

  • How much moving are you doing weekly?
  • What activities make you feel euphoric?
  • What activities are physically effective but numb your spirit and sedate your mind?
  • What have you wanted to do/try and haven’t found the time/opportunity?
  • What is one Move commitment you can make today and stick with for the next 10 days?

Engage

  • Are you fulfilled by the state of your relationships?
  • Do you make life-long learning a priority?
  • Do you have a spiritual practice? Does it nurture your life?
  • Do you feel connected to your culture(s)/and the culture(s) of your family?
  • Does art, music, literature, theater, dance receive attention in your life?
  • Do you take time to focus on deep questions and test what is true for you?
  • What is one Engage commitment you can make today and stick with for the next 10 days?

Choose one person you trust as your accountability partner – share with that person your one or more commitments for the next 10 days.

What are the consequences if you keep your commitment(s) to yourself?

What are the consequences if you betray those commitment(s)?

How can your accountability partner help you be successful? (please make this meaningful – don’t phone it in!)
