Kryss Huang was not a stranger to living a holistic lifestyle when she came to SWIHA. This community was a home away from home, for Kryss. She explains, “I love SWIHA, SOY, and SWINA. I feel at home each time I go to any of these beautiful places.” Kryss had been living a holistic lifestyle for the majority of her life.

5 Wellness Tips to Kick Start National Nutrition Month

Posted by Jade Marvin on 3/3/22 4:00 PM

Chew your way into a healthy lifestyle this National Nutrition Month! What better way to launch yourself into the spring season than by motivating yourself to have a healthier lifestyle? National Nutrition Month was first celebrated in March of 1973, for only one week. The purpose was to deliver nutrition education to the public while also promoting the profession of dieticians. As interest in Nutrition grew, the week expanded into a month-long celebration in 1980! With this growing awareness of Nutrition, and the importance of making informed food choices and developing healthy eating habits, National Nutrition month can be exactly the call to action you need to get started on your health journey! Every year, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics establishes a theme for National Nutrition Month, this year the theme is “Celebrate a World of Flavors” - meant to embrace global cultures, cuisines, and inclusion.

If you are lacking in the area of energy, brain function, fatigue, creativity, focus, and immunity, I have a routine with food in combination with supplements that have significantly helped me. I take these with a meal daily. I may take these with my first or second meal, depending on what my day looks like. If you're more prone to the mid-day slump, this may be better to start at noon rather than in the morning. You may even want to repeat this routine twice a day. It’s really simple and you’re probably already doing one of these things… Let me show you how to pair these daily items the most efficiently.

Take a Sip of Mindfulness with These Holiday Drink Recipes

Posted by Jade Marvin on 11/4/21 4:00 PM

A Japanese master during the Meiji era (1868-1912) named Nan-in welcomed a university professor who came to learn about Zen. The Japanese master began to serve tea.

Posted by Diana DeWolfe on 9/16/21 4:00 PM

We've all been there.  We want to eat healthier, so we do a quick Google search to get some tips and suddenly become overwhelmed by the amount of data returned. Results range from diets promising quick and easy results - low carb, low fat, high fat, carnivore, keto, plant-based - to food subscriptions to buy, ads for nutritional and fitness services, and a few websites promising to unlock the secrets to healthy eating but leave you with very little and often conflicting information. It's frustrating, often resulting in giving up and continuing old habits or taking advice from a friend of a friend who happens to know all about the latest diet craze; you hop on board excited about the promised results. Disappointment settles in quickly. Why isn't the diet working?
