Wellness is a term that has gained in popularity in recent years. Wellness is used as a name for a variety of products and programs, and as a result the term is sometimes misused. The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports and Nutrition Digest defines wellness as “a multidimensional state of being describing the existence of positive health in an individual as exemplified by quality of life and a sense of well-being.” Adopting healthy lifestyles, including being regularly active and eating well, are “processes” that lead to the “products” of health and wellness.
How can you save $5,000 when you close on your new home and continue the savings for the life of the loan? It is very easy.

As a mental health therapist it has been my privilege to work with some veterans of the Vietnam, Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan wars. Of course, from the news media, TV, and Internet, we know of their sacrifices and their willingness to risk their lives for their country. Since 9/11 hundreds of thousands have served, and many have paid with their lives or with serious life altering injuries. Other wounds equally serious, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), are less visible.
