Together, in this course, we will develop skills for correct engagement with work. This will result in long-term health and well-being. We will learn that the back is the core structure for postures and well-being. It is important to relate our back and body structure with our daily work and promote correct engagement between the body, occupations, work, and environment in order to stay healthy and contribute to our general well-being. We will also learn a little about occupational therapy and how to seek its services when needed.

In addition, we will develop more skills for healthy practices in our workspaces. We will also apply health principles in the workplace. The goal of this course is to enable us to reflect on how we engage with our daily activities, work, and the general environment. Hopefully, this course will assist us in developing health-giving skills and habits. Welcome!
