Acknowledging and honoring the role of spirituality (purpose and meaning) in our health -- what we do in life, as well as how and why we do it.
eating whole non-processed nutritious foods
Evidence shows that cultures around the world that consume whole, non-processed, unadulterated food are healthier.

being active and moving joyfully
Regular physical activity helps improve our overall health and fitness while reducing our risks for many chronic diseases.
managing our physical surroundings
The emphasis of interconnectivity reminds us that if our internal or external environment is out of balance, we are out of balance.
practicing stress protective activities
As we address our stress, have fun, practice relaxation, and use healthy coping skills, we build our resilience to future stress and avoid the harm stress can incur.
