Health and lifestyle

A positive approach to a balanced lifestyle promotes ‘wellbeing’ and prevents ill-

health in the longer term. It is not about the length of our lives, but the quality of

that life in mind, body and spirit. A good life requires balance and moderation in all

aspects for the ultimate achievement of optimum health. It is a combination of

physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual endeavours in order to achieve our

goal. A healthy balanced mind generally has a positive attitude to lifestyle and takes

responsibility for the standard of nutritional input, physical activity, rest, relaxation

and general health care.
