Health, physical (see also Illness and disability)

Abstract

Physical health is a gift and an achievement. Some of us are luckier by genetic and cultural heritage than others, but all of us can prioritize our physical, as our mental, health to rank above our jobs, and encourage the conditions for others to do likewise. Easier said than done when the demands of making a living get in the way of having a good life, but diet, exercise, rest, and relaxation will maximize what nature and nurture have given us. Be sure that your health insurance is current and that you schedule and keep your appointments for yearly check-ups. Do not forget your eye health as the years go by, and of course have extra tests for conditions that may run in your gene pool.
