Health literacy occurs when health information and the services created for the public match with people's capacity to find, understand, and utilize the available resources. At Live Life Resources, we believe health literacy is a core component of resilience. Understanding one's own potential for health, wellness, and well-being and how that intersects with family, community, and the systems of society is critical to resilient outcomes in the face of duress.
LiveLifeResources is working to create a database for perspectives, practices, and applications of integrative health and deeper levels of resilience for individuals, families, and communities.
Dietary or Nutrition Resilience is identified as the capacity to make the most healthful or beneficial dietary choices in any given circumstance. The following videos, articles, and other resources are intended to provide tools that enhance dietary resilience for individuals and communities.
