Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

r By Stephanie Ewell

Wellness is “…a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”— The World Health Organization

“Surround yourself” is the phrase you see on Spanish Fork city’s welcome signs. The tagline, while catchy, begs the question, “What is it that residents of the city choose to surround themselves with?”

Thanks to an exciting new Active and Healthy Communities initiative, residents now have a source of inspiration, education and motivation to surround themselves with wellness: “Be Well, Spanish Fork!”, is a new Spanish Fork 17 series that can teach anyone how, where, and why living a healthy lifestyle is within reach.

Be Well, Spanish Fork! will premiere in October and aims to highlight physical wellness, by sharing a plethora of local inspirational stories, tools for motivation, recipes and healthy lifestyle tips and tricks. Additionally, it will serve as a source of emotional and mental wellness through segments of interviews with local experts and therapists who will teach you how to enrich your life.

The city champion of health and wellness initiatives, Susan Richardson Chapman, has been instrumental in implementing a wellness focus for the community. She says, “Be Well, Spanish Fork! will be one of several tools in helping Spanish Fork achieve key Active and Healthy Community initiatives.”

Chapman and SF City Councilman Mike Mendenhall are working hard to promote and enhance healthy lifestyle resources in the city. Thanks to their efforts, new parks are under development and the already robust city biking, jogging and walking trails are expanding.

The city also operates its own public Facebook group, Spanish Fork Active and Healthy Community, which has nearly 2,000 people sharing and learning about city wellness activities and resources.

Tune in to Be Well, Spanish Fork! for a “well” of encouragement and hope for your own wellness goals. Host Stephanie Ewell is sure to inspire as she shares about topics that concern the mind, body, and spirit.

Spanish Fork 17 is available on SFCN or the program will be available on Youtube.com/SpanishFork17.
