If you have already read Eight Shifts for Wellness, think what it would have meant to you and how different your life and health and wellness might be now if you had been taught the concepts and practices in the book when you were a child. If you have not read the book, please keep that idea in mind as you read the book.
Now, please envision with me a future where children are taught these concepts and practices beginning in preschool and elementary school. Envision a future where the college curriculum for students preparing for teaching careers is expanded to include information on health and wellness so our future educators can teach children basic techniques for living a healthier life. Envision a future where the curriculums at nursing schools and medical schools are expanded to include a broader framework for impacting health and wellness. Envision a future where everyone is provided access to information, training, and support on basic wellness concepts and practices.
