Welcome to the Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience (HPN) Self-Care and Wellness Center!
■ The World Health Organization (WHO) defines self-care as, “the ability of individuals, families and communities to promote health, prevent disease, maintain health and to cope with illness and disability with or without the support of a healthcare provider.”
■ The Self-Care and Wellness Center promotes lifestyle choices as life skills in self-care. The choices we make in what we eat, when we eat, how active we are, our sleep habits, stress management, use of alcohol, tobacco and risky substances, and our social connections/relationships with others have a profound impact on our health and well-being.
■ Each of us makes choices every day that affect our health. With the myriad of health information resources available that sometimes provide conflicting information; it can be intimidating to know what constitutes the “healthy choice.”
■ Through the Self-Care and Wellness Center you will learn the Six Pillars of Lifestyle Medicine (Nutrition, Physical Activity, Sleep Hygiene, Stress Management, Social Connectedness and Avoidance of Risky Substances). Lifestyle Medicine is an evidenced-based practice of helping individuals and families adopt and sustain healthy behaviors that affect health and well-being. It effectively promotes “lifestyle as medicine.”
■ Brain health can be improved by changing our lifestyle behaviors, including the right nutrients in our daily diet and regular physical activity. To build a personalized wellness road map begins with assessing your health risks and your readiness to change unhealthy behaviors.
