Our Health Is Our Greatest Gift
Many of you reading this blog have experienced some type of difficult health situation, for yourselves, a friend or family member. It’s also what makes so many of us passionate about helping others through their illness. It’s why Patient Navigator exists.
Since it’s the New Year, most people take some type of inventory of their lives and resolve to make changes. But truly, taking care for our health should be the most important thing we do – more important than money, a promotion or material goods. Because without health, we feel powerless.
I don’t need to restate the recommendations we’ve all heard a thousand times about healthy diet and exercise. We know what we need to do. So let’s reflect today on our health and the gift that it is, the miracle that is the human body. If you are suffering, see what steps you can take to improve your situation. Your body is meant to work so beautifully; if you’re hurting it, please resolve to try harder to nurture and respect your health.
I went out and bought a teapot and some wonderful teas today. I resolve to make myself a pot of green tea every evening at about 5:00. Please think of one good thing you can do or change. Once you’ve done it, the rest will come more easily because you will feel your body thanking you. Here’s to a New Year 2010 of good health and serenity.
