Wellness Tip:  “The cure for anything is salt water.  Sweat, tears or the sea.”  Isak Dinesin
Wellness depends on a 3 pillar foundation of health involving mind, body and spirit.  Each component is as important as the other.  Every person must take time and effort to develop each of the components.  For example, devoting energy to serious study must be balanced with adequate physical exercise, sound nutrition, friendship and time away from it all to pause, reflect, pray and meditate.  Emphasizing one component over the other creates imbalance and illness.
