Alumni Delve Deeper into Health and Wellness Series
The St. Michael’s College School Alumni Association (SMCSAA) recently hosted its highly anticipated second edition of the Virtual Alumni Information Series: Health and Wellness on November 7.
This complimentary virtual session seamlessly continued the insightful journey initiated in the first part of the Health and Wellness series. The duo of special guest Speaker Mike Levine ’03 and moderator Chris Paolini ’09 delved deep into the realm of sustainable fitness routines, effective recovery strategies, and attainable lifestyle changes.
“Timed perfectly with Movember, a month dedicated to raising awareness of men’s health issues, the event provided an ideal platform to further the conversation on health and wellness,” says Andrew King, Alumni Relations Officer. “Alumnus Mike Levine ’03 explored the importance and application of physical fitness and the building blocks of functional nutrition to aid in sustainable lifestyle changes to improve quality of life through his personalized Mindful Method approach.”
From the fundamentals of movement and nutrition to an exploration of the six pillars of health (cardiovascular activity, hydration, sleep, strength training, home-cooked meals, and mindfulness), the session covered the spectrum of health and wellness.
“I’ve worked with multiple different practitioners’ functional medicine doctors, nutritionists, other alternative therapists to really work towards sustainable habits to improving the body mind, and, and, more importantly, longevity at really any age. My goal is really meeting you where you’re at today, and seeing if I can really help you, kind of get to where you want to go. I call it that 2.0”
Throughout the session, Levine reminded guests of the importance of starting small and building consistency to ensure the longevity of your journey.
