What is HEALTH?
Usually when you hear a presentation on health you hear about how to be physically healthy: eat right, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. You may even hear about how to set up an exercise program, what exercises are right for you and what amounts of nutrients are best for you, but what about all the other dimensions of health?
