Southern West Virginia Lifestyles, or SWVL (pronounced swivel), is a campaign that aims to kickoff your healthy lifestyle by giving you simple changes to your daily routine that can make a big difference. After all, healthy looks good on everyBODY!
Rivalry Week is your chance to win bragging rights, prizes and maybe even a field day with a giant inflatable bouncy house just for making healthy choices!
Starting on November 16, SWVL will be hosting a week-long competition between rival high schools in Logan, Mingo and Wyoming County. Students compete by completing challenges posted @SWVLProject on Twitter, then posting a picture or video with their school hashtag. The school with the most points in total will win a field day full of games, food and prizes. Learn more.

A healthy diet is essential for being physically fit. Without a proper diet, exercise is meaningless. Diet changes can be troublesome, so that’s why SWVL encourages you to make smaller, yet easy changes to eating habits. As well as healthy alternatives at restaurants! For example, replacing mayonnaise with ketchup. Little changes can make a big difference! Learn more here.
