Wellness is a vague term used these days to describe the overall general health of a person in the millennium. It has been a trend that many have capitalised on. There are wellness spa's, dentists, juice bars, bookstores, homeopathic centres, all believed to aid in the struggle to find ones well being and health again that somehow got lost along the way. 

Wellness means something different to everyone, and perhaps that is why our society is bursting at the seams with its offerings and variety of solutions.

However, I do believe that there are three generic things that all of us can do to keep and support a healthy mind, body, and soul:

1. Sleep; getting proper rest is important for the brain, cell renewal, and mind clarity.

2. Food choice: what we put in our bodies, provides energy, and is physically absorbed to aid in our growth. We literally are what we eat. 

3. Movement: natural movement. I am not talking about going to the gym or running a mile, just move, walk, garden, bake a cake using only your muscle. It releases tension, it aids in blood flow, and strengthens muscle.

Man, woman, young or old, the above can and will aid in our modern day search for the fountain of wellness. I think sometimes we forget just how simple it is. -tM
