Health is fundamental for all of us, even though there are some, for whom it is more elusive. We need to do what we can reasonable do to develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle and overall health for ourselves and our children.
There are many aspects to health; physical, mental, social, spiritual, and economic, just to name a few.
Managing stress is one, among many, important aspect of good health. This includes regular healthy meals and exercise. Help your children maintain a healthy weight range without being too heavy or too lean. Help them develop a positive healthy body and self image while maintaining appropriate modesty.
