All ʻŌlelo of the Week

“When we eat, we take in energy, both physically and spiritually; when we rush through a meal, we consume that hectic energy. The next time you sit down to eat, be still and be present: Relish how ʻono the food tastes, savor some ʻono conversation with good company, and enjoy. This way, the food you eat and the energy you take in will be good for your body and your spirit.”

—Kaleikūkamakani Ruiz, Counselor, Leeward Community College
