Many of us are looking for the magic pill, the easy answers, the path of least resistance. The good news is that Creating Health is actually quite simple Your road to healing your body, mind and spirit is all about intake and output….positive connection with ourselves and others, nutrient dense foods, water, oxygen, exercise, sleep, relaxation and following your dreams.
The bad news is that there is no quick fix….you have to commit to loving your body and treating it kindly every day!!! You and only you can make the decision to give your body what it needs to heal and function well….in other words W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S. There is an easy way to remember how to do this….
To get you started, I created a simple guide for parents to follow with their kids. It is the key to creating and maintaining health!!!!:
