While we are all continuing our fight against COVID-19, the New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association (New Life) has launched a dedicated "COVID-19 Well-being Tips" website to share mental well-being information. We hope every one of us can enjoy holistic 3(body), 3(mind) and 0(spirit) well-being, here, now and always.

In light of the circumstances due to the ongoing pandemic, tending to our needs on the dimensions of the body (3), mind (3), and spirit (0) is equally as important as other protective measures we are taking against the pandemic.

In the Cantonese language, the numbers 3, 3, and 0 rhyme phonetically with the words meaning "body, mind, and spirit". Holistic wellbeing is immensely important to every one of us. Whether we are physically healthy or not, each of us should have the ability to live a life where our holistic needs are abundantly met. There are many ways to achieve a state of holistic wellbeing, with mindfulness being one effective and scientifically proven strategy to decrease stress and anxiety, improve interpersonal relationships, strengthen the immune system, increase creativity and productivity, etc. Newlife•330 aims to help you access simple methods to integrate mindfulness into your daily life and achieve holistic wellbeing, including the 330 mobile app, website, and workshops which bring together mindfulness and various activities.
