Danna Ellis, CAH’s Program Developer and Wellness Coordinator, strategically plans and creates opportunities to empower our community, free of charge.
Ellis aims to bring about positive change in physical, mental, and spiritual
well-being. Her goal is to develop and encourage a culture of wellness for both employees, patients and the community in order to increase productivity satisfaction, and overall happiness in the workplace and life in general.
One way Ellis plans to develop a culture of wellness is through offering a variety of classes and exercise opportunities. A few of these opportunities include yoga, tai chi, an active aging class, regular challenges and fitness planning, zumba and boot camps. Along with prioritizing daily physical activity, Ellis also stresses the importance of other wellness factors like getting quality sleep, dealing with stress and hydration.
Most people long for a sense of satisfaction in life and health. Whether it is making a better life for their children or grandchildren, reducing risks of future health issues, or simply wanting to feel, look, and be more healthy, finding meaningful motivation is vital when seeking improvement. Ellis explains that wellness is not just about running long distances or sticking to an impossible diet. “It's about finding your movement, what you enjoy, and incorporating it into your life because it is going to enhance your life, it’s going to enhance your families lives, and it’s going to enhance your community.” Whether it is a physical, mental, or spiritual movement, the most important thing is to take action and begin figuring out how to incorporate this progress in your everyday life.
