Policies affecting and impacting on the public services: Environmental This is an important issue affecting all parts of public life. Our government is a very eco-friendly, anti-green house affect, meaning that they want to make the planet better for the environment, therefore the public services have become more aware of the need to recycle resources and move towards procedures that limit damage to the environment. In addition, some MOD areas of land have been set aside to protect species that may not have a chance to thrive elsewhere, training areas have been moved in the aim of the protection on the environment and animals. Civilian Civilianisation is a process where public service officers are released from doing non-operational tasks that don’t require their specialist expertise or training. These officers are then free to work in an operational role.
Dell, Pepsi Bottling Group, General Electric, and the State of Alabama’s wellness programs are clearly focused on preventative healthcare. These wellness programs are designed to detect the four leading causes of serious illnesses; high blood pressure, high cholesterol, high glucose levels, and a high body mass index. It is common knowledge that each of these four health issues can and has lead to much more serious health issues when not treated in a timely manner. This is why one of the unique things about wellness programs is that they do not just result in monetary savings; they also save lives because of their preventative nature. Although the requirements that the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and federal statues have set for wellness programs are strict, it can be seen that companies Human Resource Departments are clearly creating wellness programs that will meet the standards of this criteria.
(Vegetarian Times / Why Go Veg) There are many benefits to becoming a vegetarian. By becoming a vegetarian, you significantly reduce your risk of many illnesses, including cardiovascular disease, hypertension, obesity, diabetes, and some cancers. Vegetarianism can even prevent or reverse such fates. According to some experts, vegetarians can expect to live up to 10 years longer. (The pros and cons of being a vegetarian, 2013) Not only by “warding off disease,” but also by improving their immune system which is why they tend to get sick less often.
Unit 8-P2 In this essay I am going to explain different psychological approaches to health practice. Social learning theory According to this theory, we need to have a good role model in our life, so that we can learn good behaviours from them. For people who want to eat healthy and be healthy, celebrity such as, Jamie Oliver would be a very good role model, because he teach people to eat healthy to have a healthy life. He also brought lots of publicity to the healthy eating campaign. If someone eats junk food all the time and that person’s mother or friend told him/her to eat healthy, it’s less likely that he/she will listen to them, but if he/she admires Jamie Oliver and he suggests to eat healthy, then there is more possibility for that person to follow what he says.
OPTIMUM NUTRITION IS NEEDED FOR OPTIMUM HEALTH Word Count: 1086 Optimum nutrition is the most important aspect of health and wellbeing for the human body as this is where we obtain our energy and structural requirements(Rolfes, Pinna, & Whitney, 2012, p.6). Without a balanced diet of micronutrients and macronutrients, basic functions required for metabolism cannot be met (Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand, 2005). The World Health Organization defines health as ‘Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmity’ (World Health Organization, 2013). To achieve a state of health, the body requires energy to maintain metabolic processes such as growth and synthesis of new tissues, muscular activity and heat production. These functions are only possible with the consumption of carbohydrates, proteins and fats (Nutrient Reference Values for Australia and New Zealand, 2005).
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) the determinants of health include: the social and economic environment, the physical environment, and the person’s individual characteristics and behaviors. These determinants—or things that make people healthy or not—include the above factors, and many others: • Income and social status - higher income and social status are linked to better health. The greater the gap between the richest and poorest people, the greater the differences in health. • Education – low education levels are linked with poor health, more stress and lower self-confidence. • Physical environment – safe water and clean air, healthy workplaces, safe houses, communities and roads all contribute to good health.
Firstly, aged care and cultural training is required for health and aged care professionals to improve the quality of services provided to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Secondly, education on health conditions is a very useful strategy for both elderly Aboriginal people and younger people, for example, dietary change, losing weight, stopping smoking and increasing physical activity are key factors in diabetes management. Eating a healthy nutritional diet will prevent many chronic diseases (Mark, 2011). Physical inactivity is a preventable risk factor closely associated with mortality and poor health and combined with obesity can have a greater influence on one’s health. Thirdly, the most efficient way for poor health, community services for older Aboriginal people is availability of transport.
Our approach, which emphasizes prevention and good health promotion, is much more proactive. By helping employees change their behavior patterns and choose more healthy lifestyles, Bounce fitness will lower companies' health care expenditures, while raising worker productivity. Health care expenditures will decrease due to reduced medical insurance premiums, reduced absenteeism, reduced turnover rates, reduced worker's compensation claims, reduced tardiness, shorter hospital stays, etc. Health care crisis, coupled with current demographic changes, threaten to not only exacerbate the crisis, but further erode worker productivity as well. These environmental factors coupled with the local competitive situation signal a favorable opportunity in this market.
AUS PUBLIC SPEAKING FATIMA ABUBAKER Bottled water is significant and concerning environmental issue that not many seem to address, alternatives, such as reusable bottles is one of the many ways that can be used to improve our ecosystem. As humans, we naturally rather include convenience in our daily lives because value our time and don’t tend to prioritise minor issues. But if we were to take the time and look at the statistics provided to us we will be able to understand that incorporating reusable water bottles is both more effective and pragmatic, and cost efficient. Today’s manufacturers began to use biodegradable bottles in order to be an environmental friendly but they forget about the chemically sensible human body. Reusable water bottles are less harmful to the environment and the body due to the intelligent production that takes into consideration the aspects stated above.
The Physiology of Physical Activity – Why Exercise is Important Joseph Owen Whiters Kinesiology 1 – Instructor Suzanne Witmer Long Beach City College We all know that we should exercise, we all know that being active is good for us, but few of us realize that being physically active is the single most important thing that we can do to improve and maintain our health. In reading the article Why Exercise Works Magic, I found out that regular movement not only lowers the risk of developing or dying from heart disease, stroke and diabetes but that it also prevents certain cancers, improves mood, builds bones, strengthens muscles, expands lung capacity, reduces the risks of falls and fractures and helps to keep excess weight in check. The benefits of exercise really start to accumulate once physical activity becomes a routine habit. The body starts to adapt to the increasing demands being placed on it which leads to increased stamina as we become more fit. For example, the lungs process more oxygen as each breath becomes deeper and the heart pumps more blood with each beat.
