According to the World Health Organization in 1948, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."While this might appear to be common sense, with today's busy world, people often forget to take time not only for themselves, but to help the people around them - after all,

Default Air Force Logo CAF: Helping Team MacDill get into shape
As the great philosopher, Cher, once put it, "Fitness - if it came in a bottle, everybody would have a great body."

Default Air Force Logo CAF: Mental Health
Everyone, in every walk of life, deals with stress - as Dr. James C. Dobson, psychologist, puts it, "There are very few certainties that touch us all in this mortal experience, but one of the absolutes is that we will experience hardship and stress at some point."
