Components of Proactive Health and Well-Being
Your diet. Your exercise routine. Your sleep patterns. Your relationships and work environment. They are all connected — and they are all important parts of what you can do to enhance your own self-care.
The Components of Proactive Health and Well-Being model lays out eight key areas of self-care, illustrating how they fit in with other critical elements of your personal health plan. Improving one area can benefit all other aspects of your life — including your overall physical, mental, and spiritual health and well-being.

Whole Health Yoga Works! See what Veterans say about Manchester VA Whole Health yoga offerings!
"Yoga is new to me. I didn’t know what to expect. It has given me greater insight into how to exercise both my mind and body; not only in the Yoga class, but also in the supervised exercise program I am taking at the Y [YMCA}. Wish I had gotten interested in Yoga years ago."

"What yoga means to me? Well, I had my knees replaced about 10 years ago. Since then I have had difficulty getting up off the floor. I have been doing Yoga for about a year, and now I have no difficulty getting up off the floor. I will be 85 in June and I think I am pretty healthy so hopefully by doing Yoga I can keep on improving and staying that way for long as I can."
-Bill Post, US Marine, Korean War
"We were told that I could come and join him [Husband Bill Post]. I have fallen in love with the whole spirit of yoga. The members in our class are like family. We have become bonded and really care what is going on in the life of everyone else. I am not a religious person, but I am very spiritual and I have a real feeling of connection to the people, both in our present and past life. I feel so good after a yoga class both physically and mentally. I am hooked for life."
-Joan Post wife of Marine from Korean War
