CHOICE

God gave freedom of choice at creation. Making healthy choices is the KEY to improving your life. It's the starting point from which everything else flows. Choice is the first step toward improving your well-being. Before positive change can be achieved, we must deliberately choose to do so.

REST

Rest was created by God. Rest makes it possible for us to function at our best. Rest is essential for good health. Without proper rest, we forfeit the health benefits that nutrition and exercise provide. People who don't get enough regular sleep have decreased brain function and increased rates of disease and mortality.
