Wellbody Blog

At Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness, we understand there's only one thing harder than making healthy behavior changes: Sticking to them! We all need a little help from our friends, and that's the purpose of the Wellbody Blog, a friendly online gathering spot--a community well--where you can dip into health news; wellness tips; recipes; latest research about nutrition, exercise, sleep and hygiene; plus, real stories from virtual neighbors who are also trying to change their lives for the better. Start from wherever you are; share ideas, information, inspiration. At Pacific Science Center, we believe each of us can do something everyday to improve our health and well-being.

If you brown bag, this is for you.

That’s why we love mason jar salads. Pack five days worth of salads into wide-mouth, quart-size mason jars, stash the jars in the refrigerator and pop one into your reusable lunch bag every morning as you head out the door. You’ll save time, stress, money, the environment and your health. Does it get better than this?

Pens and Pencils? Check. Backpack? Check. Immunizations? Check. Dental check-up? ... tooth healthy lunch 200px

Consider adding an annual dental check-up to your child’s back-to-school list. It may sound surprising, but more children in the U.S. suffer from  tooth decay than any other chronic infectious disease. 

Think of the first few weeks of school as a chance to start, or reestablish, healthy routines when it comes to getting enough sleep, avoiding kid-to-kid illness, packing healthy school lunches and preventing backpack back aches.orangebackpack
