Swimming is one of the favorite past times for those who live in Southern California.

A guest post written by Elizabeth Nelson from San Diego, California

I have often pondered the importance of understanding health and how it is best achieved. Most health-conscious adults approach health by focusing on diet, physical exercise, sleep, medicine, and emotional well-being.

Health discussions abound in the media and in the community. Our Southern California community is no exception -  and promoting the idea that health is not a condition of matter is not limited to the English-speaking media.
