  • Support hurting women

The importance of wellness cannot be understated. Wellness involves the health of the whole: mind, body, and spirit. Wellness decreases stress, reduces likelihood of illness, and improves relationships.

Some Basic Principles of Health

  • Eat nutritiously (many choose a plant-based diet).
  • Exercise regularly and often to improve your body, mind, and spirit.
  • Drink water to stay hydrated.
  • Spend moderate time in sunlight.
  • Practice temperance: Use good things moderately; avoid bad things.
  • Exercise your lungs by inhaling deeply, breathing in pure air, and exhale slowly.
  • Rest well, remembering that the best rest follows labor.
  • Trust in the Divine Power as you make choices and seek inner peace.
  • Minimize your stress level
  • Pray, laugh, always be kind.
