Choice is the first step toward improved health. Consider how many choices you make each day: How much time to spend with technology vs. reading or interacting with loved ones, dietary choices and even the words you speak.

Rest includes good sleep but also taking time to relax during the day. Create spaces in your home and office for brief relaxation.

Environment is the space we make for our lives — 
inside our homes, in our yards and the places we visit for recreation. Does your personal environment reflect the life you want to live?

Activity includes stretching, muscle development and aerobic activity.  Research indicates that an increase in activity translates directly into improved health.

Trust in God speaks to the relationship between 
spirituality and healing. Our faith, beliefs and hopes all affect our health.

I-Interpersonal Relationships
Interpersonal relationships are important to your 
well-being.  Knowing you have the support of others can contribute to improved health.

Outlook colors your perspective on life.  Recent 
research highlighting the influence of the mind on the body suggests that attitude does influence your health and can even impact the progression of disease.


Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system.  
Small improvements and strategic substitutions 
produce profound results.

Research indicates that an increase in activity translates directly into improved health. Keep your shoes and supplies handy so there are no excuses to skip your walk or class.

The trust you have in your higher power affects your well-being and ability to heal. Affirm your belief with your actions, your thoughts and your environment.

I-Interpersonal Relationships
Knowing you have the support of others can contribute to improved health. Help to build your family bonds with games, outings and activities that make healthy minds, strong bodies and great memories.

Outlook colors your perspective on life. Practice gratitude for your life gifts and build an attitude of strength and compassion. This will see you through when you face health setbacks and personal crisis.

Nutrition is the fuel that drives the whole system.  Small improvements and strategic substitutions produce profound results. Keep those healthy choices handy for everyone in the house.
