Finding Life's Balance

Build a more sustainable routine with Way to Wellness

Angela Schaack has a background in mental health, having started her career in family service agencies and psychiatric hospitals. Because of what she witnessed during that time, she became inspired to get into a more preventative way of doing therapy, leading her toward the school system.

For over 20 years, she focused on providing guidance lessons to children, teaching them how to deal with anger and stress. She also tackled epidemics involving eating and lack of exercise, along with the identification of ADHD.

“It came to light that we need something more sustainable for people, so I started researching alternative ways to manage health and wellness,” says Schaack. “What I wanted to do with Way to Wellness, after deciding to really build this business, is to be able to find everything that you need in one place.”

Way to Wellness’s holistic program is centered around three core elements—nutrition, movement, and lifestyle. With these, Schaack supports clients in creating effective plans of action to build their inner resources and skills. She achieves this by getting to know them on a personal level.

“When someone comes in, we ask what is most important to them and what they are having the most difficulty with,” says Schaack. “By gradually adding one realistic thing per week to their routine, it becomes part of their routine. It’s not a quick fix, but people notice the difference and it becomes self-reinforcing.”

Above all else, Schaack encourages you to find bits of time throughout the day to get moving. It could be training for a 10K with your family or going Bollywood dancing with a friend. Other great choices include the calming and centering tools of yoga and tai chi.

Don’t let your resolutions fall by the wayside. Discover your strengths and meet your goals over time. Visit to take control of your mental and physical health with therapeutic coaching and retreats offered by Angela Schaack, LCSW, CIMHP, AFAA-GFI.

“When setting goals, make sure to have a clear plan and a support system.”
