WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
When you eat right, exercise, get enough sleep, drink lots of water, and do your best to have good relationships with your family and friends, you help your body to create good health.

Many adults end up with heart disease, diet-related cancers, diabetes, high blood pressure, or are overweight. Yet a healthy diet and regular exercise can help to prevent these.
