Our physical and mental health must be our first priority, but is it? It’s pretty simple stuff here—for without our health, we have nothing. Harsh, but true. But why is it that we take our health for granted so easily? Most of the time, we don’t need to think about how our heart pumps blood, how our lungs expand and contract, how our eyes take in what we see, and how our brain processes 11 million bits of information every second. But, when any of these functions falter or fail, we think about them incessantly. A healthy person has a thousand wishes; an unhealthy person has one—to be healthy. It’s time to be proactive about our health. We know better. Living in the information age allows us to have all the information we need in an instant. So the ignorance excuse is forever gone. The question is whether or not we are truly really to take ownership of our health. Taking care of oneself is an investment. It takes thought. It takes time. It takes effort. But the rewards and return on investment are immeasurable. Your physical and mental health matters to you, your friends, your family, and the world. Being healthy matters.
