Health is important. SO is the bills, school, work etc. With all the things we have to focus on, it is hard to add health to our list.Do you make your health a priority and pay a lot of attention to it?

When I am sick, I cannot work and that means it is hard to supplement the needs of my family. When I am healthy, I have a fresher mind and can focus much on my work. So to me, health is the number one in my list of priorities. If I make it number two, the situation must be very different.

I wish I could say yes to this, but, I can't. Sometimes life gets too busy that I compromise my health. Just last week, I worked almost 18 hours everyday and that left me little time to sleep. Now I'm paying for it as I've been sick for days now. I also wish I'd be able to go back to proper diet and exercise.

i feel the same.. lifes too busy, and convenience food etc is too quick and easy rather than trying to be healthy.

I have to be honest and admit that I hardly ever make the time for my health needs. I am too busy with every day life and working right now.

To be honest no.. I don’t pay a lot of attention to my health because I actually find that my ill-health and bad health and sickness comes from being really stressed out and run down.. so I concentrate more on work and the bills.. because I know so long as everything is sorted, and I have nothing to worry about, then I am financially stable, and so is my health because I haven’t been stressed out or run down!!

I am not that particular with my health issues. I guess I am one of those who doesn't really panic when something unusual happens..

I used to ignore and not give much attention to my health especially when I am younger but now that I am reaping the toils of abusing my youth, I give much attention to my health. I now stay away from foods that will make me gain weights and from sugar and salt. I eat in moderation and take herbal supplements and grow my own veggies to supply me with the organic foods that I need.

Me? well, I don't give much focus with regards to my health, but I have a friend who was very conscious to her health. She really strict when it comes to the food she takes. She's well-discipline to her diet and I admire her for that. Fresh fruits and vegetables are always part of her meals. I can also say that she is giving herself a time to exercise unlike others. Vitamins and body cleansing drinks like tea are always part of her daily routine. How I wish I can be like her. By the way, have a nice day my friend! Happy mylotting!

health is one of the primary thing that we need to take care of it. without good health we cannot move here and there with smiles. i can't respond you if i'm down with health problems. so i take at most care for my health.

I certainly do try to pay as much attention to my health as I possibly can. It really important to pay attention to it. It may not always easy, but I do think that we should pay as much attention to our health as we can.

I believe that health is the greatest wealth during one's lifetime. Yes, I pay more and more attention to my body now. Keeping regular and healthy diet, go to bed before midnight, do more exercises and get physical examination etc. I hope everyone can own a healthy body and enjoy the life. Keep smiling is also very important.

Yes, health should actually be well taken cared of. Living a simple life away from vices is a form of good practice. I do not have much time to exercise but when I go to the malls I would use the stairs instead of the escalator. I also try to avoid foods with preservatives because it has been proven that preservatives can cause cancer and other illness. I haven't tried eating organic vegetables but I have heard this is best for us. One day I will try growing those myself. There are a lot of options to keep us healthy, all we have to do is to find what will suit our lifestyle.
