TAKING CARE OF
YOUR HEALTH HAS
MULTI-FACETED
MEANING
Doctors can talk about health in
measurable amounts. They can talk about
blood tests, how high your blood pressure
is, and what your cholesterol measures
both good and bad. Ultimately, these
mean nothing to most people. So what
does health really mean to you? Health is
freedom, the freedom to enjoy your life and
to be able to come and go as you please. It
allows you more time with your family and
friends, to help people, and to express and
receive love.

what does health really mean to you?
Health is freedom, the freedom to enjoy
your life and to be able to come and go
as you please. It allows you more time
with your family and friends, to help
people, and to express and receive love.
Although, you may not acknowledge it at
the time these are the things that health
allows you and so staying healthy is
important to most individuals who want
a better life.
When your health is not good you will
feel a certain way. Being tired and
rundown will not lead to many fun
activities. People that don’t have any
energy will not enjoy usually fun things
like shopping with friends or even be
able to go to the park and kick a ball
around with the kids. If you enjoy hiking
or walking your dog, you need to in a
certain amount of good health to make it
happen.
A lot of people have not yet faced the fact
that becoming healthier is something
that you have to work on. It is something
that involves the way that you live your
life, everyday. People that spend a great
deal of time fopped on the sofa eating
bag after bag of chips are not working
on better health. By making better life
choices you will give yourself the chance
to live a better life.
Giving yourself better health is not
something that is mysterious. It can be
really simple. It just means watching
what you eat. Instead of gobbling down
some food that you will regret later eat
something that fulflls your body. Instead
of taking the elevator go for the stairs
sometimes. It is also smart to get with
your doctor and get yourself checked
out regularly for different things that are
easily tested for.
A long and healthy life is something that
everyone hopes to attain and by making
just a few life changes you really stand
a chance at living a better life. Eat right,
exercise, and make sure you visit with
your doctor regularly to ensure that you are
getting the most of your time here on earth.
