The ABC’s of Self Care T

TEAMWORK divides the task and multiplies the SUCCESS

The ABC’s of Self Care T

This week we have come to the letter T in our discussion of the ABC’s of Self Care.

The Self Care Awakening is a passion for Heather and me. Our battle cry of Be Healthy by Choice, is better served when we have informed, inspired and empowered others to be Self Care Advocates and in turn they share the message with others. We have created a Team.

Merriam-Webster defines Teamwork as: work done by several associates with each doing a part but all subordinating personal prominence to the efficiency of the whole. Teamwork has been defined differently by different schools of thought and different individuals but all of them zero in on one idea that teamwork involves people working in a group or team to accomplish a given task.

Successful teamwork requires a few basic skills and attributes, among them are:

  • Respect for individual contributions
  • Putting aside individual glory
  • Consensus building
  • Clear communication
  • Persuasive speech
  • Compromise

Teamwork is a powerful concept to bring about change. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has”. How true!

Our mission is to Inform, Inspire and Empower Everyone to be Healthy by Choice. We want everyone to recognize that chronic disease is not a normal part of life or “just getting older.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state “Chronic disease is the Leading Causes of Death and Disability in the United States. Chronic diseases and conditions—such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, and arthritis—are among the most common, costly, and preventable of all health problems.” We want to focus on “…and preventable of all health problems.” We designed the Self Care Awakening to give you the knowledge and the tools to help prevent chronic disease. Nikken has developed the concept, the products and technologies for a Wellness Home that provides the means for simple healthy choices. Self Care and the Wellness Home provides an integrated approach to being healthy by choice. It is our sincere hope that you appreciate and put into practice self care principles. If you have an interest in being part of our growing Team, get in touch with the person that shared this message with you and find out how through collaboration we can create a healthier, happier world.

Please note, there will be no Impetus next week as we will be traveling to collaborate with many our Team and fellow Self Care Advocates.
