I'm just curious about how many people are health conscious in todays fast paced world.Your health determines the quality of the life you are leading.Very often i've seen people who are so caught with deadlines and packed schedules that they put their health in the backseat.Well i'd just like to remind those people that you live only once-enjoy yourself and take care of yourself!Make sure that you don't forget the reason you're working-to live a better life.I was one busy person always on the move till i was hospitalised sometime back and was told to take it easy.So how many of you'll don't bother about your health because you're too busy?I hope you wake up and start doing so.Health is Wealth!Agree?

When I was younger, I rarely fell it. I'd have my annual cold and that was it. However, as I've grown older, I've run into many medical issues, oftentimes one right after the other. I don't know what it could be other than what you suggest shilpa, that people don't take the time to just relax and take it easy. I think men and younger people, in general, are more prone to thinking they're invincible and will always just be on-the-go. But I think everybody would benefit from focusing and listening to what their body tells them. If it's saying enough is enough, then listen to it.

Thats a good place for everyone to start.Agreeing that they need to take it easy.Well you take care.And i'm glad someone agrees that we need to draw a line between being sincere to our work and being silly.

As i said,NOT OVER-WORKING YOURSELF,TAKING TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF AND REGULARLY CHECKING FOR ANY SIGNS THAT POINT TO OR INDICATE THAT YOU'RE NOT LOOKING AFTER YOURSELF.I don't personally know everybody to pinpoint any habits that maybe leading to health problems.But i also know that we usually are familiar with them;we just need a wake up call.So my point is to handle it before it becomes that extreme.

Not really very often.I try to keep myself busy and keep the mind working during the working hours and being positive really helps.Of course,nowadays its quite easy to catch cold or cough,however...keeping mind over matter can be good idea to overcome these. Wish you a Healthy/wealthy life.
