A Holistic Guide to Whole-Person Wellness
For people with mental health and substance use conditions, wellness is not the absence of disease, illness or stress, but the presence of purpose in life, active involvement in satisfying work and play, joyful relationships, a healthy body and living environment, and happiness.1
Wellness means overall well-being. It incorporates the mental, emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of a person's life. Each aspect of wellness can affect overall quality of life, so it is important to consider all aspects of health. This is especially important for people with mental health and substance use conditions because wellness directly relates to the quality and longevity of your life.
Emotional—Coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships
Environmental—Good health by occupying pleasant, stimulating environments that support well-being
Financial–Satisfaction with current and future financial situations
Intellectual—Recognizing creative abilities and finding ways to expand knowledge and skills
Occupational—Personal satisfaction and enrichment from one’s work
Physical—Recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods and sleep
Social—Developing a sense of connection, belonging, and a well-developed support system
Spiritual—Expanding our sense of purpose and meaning in life

Oh, yes, I HEAR you! "What? Where has she BEEN?!" Hah! We all missed her, didn't we? We'll get those Where's Waldo answers tomorrow - when Joyce Cooling visits us at three p.m. Eastern time! Remember that - for Tuesday, 11/18 - the show STARTS at TWO. We'll have three two-hour shows this week!
Back to our sublime guest: Joyce has been making beautiful music with her guitar for QUITE a while now. Self-taught, her influences and inspirations range from Brazilian to Classical to Rock - and it all pours forth into a pulsating, dynamic and driving deliciousness that is profoundly JAZZ!
#1 radio singles, six Top Ten, multiple music awards - and nominated for several others. "Global Cooling" was her seventh studio album and that was released in 2009.
Well, it HAS been quite an absence on the scene...and the reason for this visit from Joyce (a reunion!) is specific: she has a new HOLIDAY single! Produced by longtime producer, Jay Wagner, "The Holiday's On" is meant to convey a 1940's Swing era vibe with a spin that's infectious :) We'll hear it - and more tracks that are meaningful - and we'll talk to Joyce about a favorite subject: mental health. This fascinating artist has worked with some of the best in the business (Stan Getz, Charlie Byrd, Al Jarreau!) and has made friends all over the world. But the urgency of her life's path has much to do with the focus on keeping us emotionally afloat. That's why Joyce is a national advocate for NAMI: the National Alliance for Mental Health. As we near Thanksgiving and get into gear for the season, nothing is more important that focusing attention on how we're coping. How we can help ourselves and help others live better lives. Please join us for a SPECIAL "Hybrid Jazz!" 11/18/2014.
Update on the NY NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness)
Drug companies giving an award to a person who is lying to the government and to the American people to make a larger pharmaceutical profit with a captive audience.
Tune in every weeknight at 8:00pm to 10:00pm to hear The Captain unlock his treasure chest of opinions and ideas, facing all matters of Constitutional Freedom.
Linda Naomi Katz was raised as a modern orthodox Jew, where mental illness became a factor throughout her life. It had started with her mother when she was in the fifth grade. Her mother had suffered a nervous breakdown and was diagnosed with acute depression. This gave Linda and her family a huge amount of stress. As she was growing up into adulthood, her mother's illness affected her in ways that she too would become a depressed person. Linda had difficulties making friends, developing positive relationships, and maintaining employment. After she graduated college, she also suffered from a mental illness and was diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Through the years she was faced with challenges that were difficult to overcome, but worked hard to achieve recovery. As part of her recovery from mental illness, she became active and volunteered for a variety of mental health organizations. Linda became a member of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness or formerly called National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) and published articles about her life in New York City Voices, a newspaper for people with mental illness to share their personal recovery stories. Both of these agencies helped fight against stigma and other issues pertaining to mental illness. Soon after, Linda found employment working for agencies that help others with mental illness reach their goals and dreams. Today, Linda is happily married, an author who has published a book titled Surviving Mental Illness, My Story which won a Silver Medal Award by Readers Favorite for best non-fiction/autobiography and came in First Place and won the Life Journeys Award for best memoir/biography from Readers Views. Through this book she describes all of her challenges that she dealt with while having a mental illness and how she found her way back towards establishing a wellness by staying mentally and physically strong.
