Our Hawaiian word of the day is "Olakino". The word olakino refers to the state of health and well being. The word "ola" which means life and health, and the word "kino" which means body, you get the word "olakino" for the health and vitality of the body. Used in a sentence "E ʻai pono a e hoʻoikaika kino no ke olakino maikaʻi." This is translated as "Eat healthy and exercise for a healthy body." Olakino is the greatest wealth one can attain. The traditional diet was comprised of healthy food that came from your community. When paired with the rigors of daily activity and a life of exercise, the traditional Hawaiian was renowned for their great health or "olakino maikaʻi."
