Education is not transformation, but it is a great place to start sowing the seeds of change. Accessing credible information is one step individuals can take to support their own health or offer support to others. We have included links in three main categories: Nutrition, Physical Activity and Workplace Wellness. While these don’t cover the whole spectrum of health and wellness, they offer some foundational knowledge for those who would rather start their journey with some private learning.

A list of quality health and wellness resources serves several important purposes:

  1. Accessibility: Not everyone has easy access to health professionals or facilities. By offering a list of resources, we can help individuals find information and support that they might not otherwise have access to.
  2. Empowerment: Knowledge is power. By sharing resources, we empower individuals to take charge of their own health and well-being. They can learn about preventive measures, self-care techniques, and available support networks.
  3. Support: Health issues can be overwhelming, and it’s often comforting to know that there are resources available to help. Whether it’s a hotline for immediate assistance, online communities for support and advice, or informational websites for learning about specific conditions, these resources can provide much-needed support.
  4. Preventive care: Encouraging people to engage with health and wellness resources can contribute to preventive care. By educating individuals about healthy habits, early warning signs of illness, and the importance of regular check-ups, we can help prevent serious health issues before they arise.
  5. Community building: Sharing resources fosters a sense of community. It shows that we care about the well-being of others and are willing to provide support and assistance when needed. This can strengthen social bonds and create a network of support within communities.
