/ welcome to wellness week

 
A MESSAGE FROM THE DEAN

The College of Health, Human Services, and Science invites you to join us for our third annual celebration of Wellness Week at Ashford University. We began this initiative to call attention to National Wellness Week, celebrated annually during the third week of September as part of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA’s) National Recovery Month to inspire individuals and communities to incorporate the Eight Dimensions of Wellness into their lives. While wellness is especially important for people with mental or physical illness, we want everyone to know that your overall health and well-being goes beyond going to the gym to tone and shape your physical body. Your social, emotional, and spiritual well-being are equally important, and the more we know about how to take care of ourselves the longer, healthier, and happier our lives will be. This is why we celebrate wellness week, and this is why we hope you will join us too!

This year, we have invited faculty and students to join our celebration by submitting a written blog or 1-minute wellness video on a topic of wellness of interest to them. We will also host six live sessions during the week addressing the areas of physical, spiritual, emotional and occupational health. I look forward to what Wellness Week 2019 has to offer!
Laura Sliwinski, PhD, MHA | Executive Dean

Using Mindfulness to Cope with Stress of Online Learning

David Bailey

The global community places a high level of emphasis on the value of education. Higher education institutes have expanded the way they serve students by offering degree programs to a wider market through the use of the internet. The inherent difference between ground-based and online education is the limited support offered to remote, online students. Online programs require students to be more disciplined in meeting deadlines and assuming more of the role for achieving identified learning objectives. After reading the blog, the reader will take away some brief strategies that will help in managing the stress encountered through an online program.

Pranayama: Pause, Pray and Perform

Phelicia Price

Tuesday, September 17, 2019 | 12:00 pm PT

Pranayama is the breath, the life force. This Zoom mini workshop will cover the importance and power of the breath. There will be breath techniques to ease the mind and prepare for meditation or prayer. Breathing is also important to your movement practice. Marrying the body to the breath is a wonderful way increase flexibility, build strength and boost stamina. The body is amazing and extremely resilient, but the mind that controls it can be manipulated. The beautiful thing about the breath, it is never in the past and never in the future, it is always in the present. You can use the breath to be present, to prepare for rigorous activity and to bring a feeling of calmness. We have the power to change our response by changing our breath and sending signals to our brain that we are ok and that we have things under control.

Achieving Balance through Recreation

Melaney Dees

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 | 1:00 pm PT

As students we often work at break-neck pace to research, complete assignments, and juggle all of our own personal responsibilities. How does one achieve emotional sanity, physical fitness, spiritual connection, and an opportunity to be with family and friends? The answer may be as simple as how we play or use our recreational time. TV binging is great from time to time, but spending as little as 15 minutes dancing around the living room with your family, connecting with friends two or three times a week to exercise, or taking a 5 minute break in between discussion posts can lift your mood and renew energy.

Conventional Medicine is Failing: Holistic Medicine is the Answer

Crystal Galvan Mendez

Thursday, September 19, 2019 | 12:00 pm PT

We live in a society in which fear plays a major role in our decision making.  This is apparent in the way that conventional medicine in the United States uses fear to enforce its practice guidelines.  Fear surrounding pregnancy and the birth process has resulted in an alarming rise in both cesarean births and the rates of severe maternal morbidity.  This is an issue that merits collective attention in order to dispel the fear of this natural process and thus change the perception, and ultimately the medical paradigm, of pregnancy and birth in the United States.

Aisha Thomas is an impactful and energetic speaker with a passion to empower the youth through social and emotional facilitation. As a Confidence Creator and Mental Health Advocate, she aims to embed inclusion, self-love and motivation into the culture of each young person, which results to healthier homes, schools and community climates.

Her journey began when her family migrated to the United States, from Sierra Leone, Freetown, a country in West Africa. Soon after starting elementary school, she encountered bullying which followed her into high school. As an attempt to belong, she began to follow a bad crowd of friends which led to her having a 0.4 GPA, her first quarter, as well as being suspended. As time progressed, her self-esteem waned and she attempted suicide that freshman year of high school, at the age of 14.

 

With an unstoppable mindset, Aisha overcame many other challenges from dating violence and sexual assault and became an honor roll student. She also graduated in the first computer networking program, in her district, completed college and joined the United States Air Force (USAF), where she has been serving, for over 14 years.

 

Aisha's service did not stop once she joined the USAF. She embarked on a journey to raise community awareness on topics such as sexual assault, suicide and bystander intervention. Thousands have been impacted and inspired after hearing her words of encouragement. She joined the Speaker's Bureau for the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization, RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) and began speaking at universities, community organizations and churches. She also became a lead Facilitator for the Department of Defense, educating civilian and military members on suicide and interpersonal violence.

 

Aisha studies under the tutelage of World Renowned Motivational Speaker and Author, Dr. Eric Thomas. She is currently one of the lead mentors of a military team that supports local schools. She manages volunteer recruiting efforts, teacher/student feedback and creates programs and activities to create solid mentee/mentor relationships. Aisha’s personal triumph is the reason why she has embarked on this path to empower young men and women one speech at a time.
