The 8 Dimensions of Wellness: Bringing Together All Aspects of Health

National Wellness Week takes place during the third week of September across communities throughout the US. During National Wellness Week, the White Plains Youth Bureau seeks to inspire individuals & families to improve their health behaviors, while also exploring their talents, skills, interests, social connections, and environment to incorporate the Eight  Dimensions of  Wellness into their lives as part of a holistic lifestyle. National Wellness Week’s overarching theme every year is LIVING WELLNESS, to emphasize that no matter which dimension of wellness we focus on, or our differing abilities, the ultimate goal is to live well—within our and communities. The theme also shows that wellness is not static or finite; rather,  it’s a continuous journey. 

The White Plains Family Fun Wellness Festival Is aimed at educating, raising awareness and engaging the community to improve their overall wellness to multi-generational (children, pre-teens/teens, adults)  and diverse audiences throughout Westchester County.  It features a host of wellness practitioners and activities which include live stage dance and musical performances, interactive fitness bootcamp, karate/fencing demos, a fun zone for kids, healthy food and so much more!  

Our Passport to Health program is a self-care initiative which offers attendees a unique “In Spa Experience”.   They are encouraged to check blood pressure or other bio-metric health screenings which are conducted by licensed wellness practitioners.  As an incentive, they receive FREE  chair massages, meditation session, makeup session as a reward taking care of self.
