We know that being healthy is more than just being physically fit. It’s pursuing our passions, satisfying our curiosity and staying connected and meaningfully engaged. That’s why we created ASPIRE Wellness, a multi-dimensional approach to whole-person wellness that will leave you invigorated, inspired, and joyful. Our goal is to help you unleash your inner strength to achieve your best life, every day.
ASPIRE Wellness offers:
ASPIRE Wellness is available to those who live at Passavant Community—our Residents—as well as to members of the general public—referred to as Community Members. All residents receive a FREE annual membership. Community memberships are $150 annually or members can pay-as-you go for individual events or program.
“What I like about volunteering in the Gift Shop is that it challenges me intellectually to work the cash register. It keeps me alert to manage the finances and ensure that the balance is correct at the end of the day.”
– Celia Taylor, Passavant Community Resident
“As a Personal Trainer for several years, I have seen firsthand how much my clients can improve their overall health and well-being through exercise. I have seen impressive increases in strength, such as a resident reaching a goal of performing a 900 pound leg press.”
– Chad Ifft, Exercise Specialist II

1. Get Outside Often
It’s easy to avoid going outside in winter. But staying inside for days on end, with nothing but artificial warmth and sniffing companions for company can increase your chances of getting sick over winter.
2. Keep Up the Exercise
Thumbs up if you have made it your goal to exercise more. How’s that going for you? Don’t begrudge yourself if things haven’t gone as well as planned. We know that it can be harder to stay motivated when it’s cold outside and the days are shorter.
3. Make the Most of Nutritious Winter Fruits and Vegetables
Eating during winter doesn’t have to be boring and vitamin deficient. Keep carbohydrate-laden foods such as white bread and pasta to a minimum and fill your plate with dark leafy greens, winter squash, citrus and pomegranate, which thrive in the chill of winter.
4. Protect Your Skin From the Inside-Out and Outside-In
Cold, dry air quickly sucks moisture from our skin. Combine that with a blasting of hot air from a central heating unit and some nice scratchy winter fabric and your skin can end up being one dry, itchy, scaly mess. Keep moisture locked into your skin with a heavy, oil-based moisturizer. Lather it on every time you bath or shower or whenever your skin feels dry.
5. Try to Keep a Regular Sleep Schedule
Our sleep-wake cycle is regulated by the hormone melatonin, which is released in response to light. Get up and go to bed at the same time of day regardless of the season. Restrict computer use and TV watching at night. Consider a melatonin supplement if you also have trouble sleeping.
