Oct. 17, 2010 - PRLog -- Study, work, and  lifestyle habits developed during college or university carry forward  into the work world and later life. These habits have a major influence  on mental, emotional, and physical health, so it is important to lay the  right foundation early.

This is the premise behind the Youth Wellness  Network (YWN), an organization dedicated to raising awareness of the  importance of positive health habits among the younger members of  society. To this end, they create realistic, tangible, and actionable  tools and programs that youth can incorporate into their lives. Among  their offerings is the Exam Stress Reduction Program, which they will be  executing on University and College campuses throughout the coming  school year.

Michael  Eisen, founder of the Youth Wellness Network and McGill University  Alumni, believes that the YWN can help students shift their thinking and  lifestyle patterns. Eisen says that In order for students to really  change their habits and actions they need to become more aware, both of  their selves and of the options that they have. "Awareness leads to the  ability to choose what options are the best for one's self - and once  they make those choices then they start to see significant change in  their lives. But without awareness, positive change can't happen," Eisen  concludes.

To further this goal,  YWN has just entered into a strategic alliance with pixcode, creators of  Wellergize and NaturalHealthcare.ca, veterans in the health and  wellness field. This alliance extends the range of health and wellness  services the YWN can offer, plus brings a technology development team  into the mix, allowing them to reach youth via the tools and channels  they already use.

Gisela  McKay, Managing Director of pixcode, says that from their perspective,  the alliance with the Youth Wellness Network enables pixcode to increase  the reach of their wellness properties, bringing their underlying  philosophy of prevention, recognition, and assistance to a younger  audience.

Gisela says,  "NaturalHealthcare.ca connects the general population with natural  health information and practitioners on their own time and initiative,  and Wellergize focuses on Health Promotion and Wellness Programs in the  workplace. What we see in the Youth Wellness Network is the opportunity  to reach young people before they develop problematic health habits that  they will later need to correct - or at least to nip those practices in  the bud."

Michael responds, "I  am excited to be collaborating with Gisela and the pixcode team. Their  experience and industry specific expertise are a perfect match to our  new, vibrant approach to inspiring youth."
