The life domain (from the LifeCourse framework) we will be focusing on next issue of Partnering Together (4.5) is Healthy Living. 

For issue 4.5 of Partnering Together, we will be focusing in on fitness and nutrition.  We’ll explore topics like:

  • going beyond treating illness and injury for a healthy life,
  • using technology to help you exercise and track your diet and activity,
  • integrated options for staying healthy, like cooking classes, community centers, workout partners, and adapted sports

PT 4.5 will also feature columns from Real Life Experts. Each issue of Partnering Together features Real Life Experts who provide their perspectives on the various life domains and topics that we all face. Here are the questions from the Charting the LifeCourse: Experiences and Questions booklet that the experts will be answering.

Are you taking me to activities such as baby yoga, Mommy and Me classes, etc? Are you teaching me about healthy,  nutritious food and how my body works?  ★ Do I know what is good (food, sleep, exercise) and bad (drugs, smoking) for my body? ★

 

 

Can some of my therapies be replaced with regular physical activities such as working out in a gym, using a treadmill or elliptical, or doing aerobics? Am I eating healthy meals and snacks and staying physically active?   ★

 

 

Am I staying as physically active as possible?   ★

 

 

Look for the next issue of Partnering Together to be released soon!
