2 & 3 (S*HIP)
Lets just face the fact that most people who have a disability do not take care of their nutritional needs or even exercise.
So, it is only fitting we include this type of knowledge
to help improve our health and do our part to minimize
health services here in prison.
BODY + MIND + SPIRIT=BETTER HEALTH.
How you feel and your general good health say more
about you than your age. And are huge factors in avoiding
age related illnesses like heart desease, stroke, and diabetes.
Lets just be real watching your helth in prison is very hard but not imposible. The key is becoming responsible for your health no matter where you live.
Adopting an optimistic and greatful attitude can be a great first step in taking charge of your health.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, ” It is one of the most beautful compentions of this life, that we can never sincerely help another human being without helping ourselves.”
As we meet people with differences– people in wheelchairs, people with mental disabilities or social disabilities–we need to get out of the mind-set of “what’s wrong with them?”
There’s nothing wrong with them.
They just happen to be different. Changing our perspective and our lifestyle, we have to be willing to go the extra mile.
We have to work together, change our beliefs, our
attitudes, our habits, and our expectations.

THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT
As we deal with our disabilities we also have responsibility to learn our rights as a disabled person.
What is the ADA and how do we learn this act?
