Take Care of Yourself to Cut Down on Health Problems

It's important to have health insurance for unexpected situations, but remember that every day you can take steps to build your health. You are precious and should not let the whirlwind of life make you forget getting rest, taking time for yourself and eating good foods. Sometimes we say we'll wait till the weekend or wait till vacation, but the work week is stressful so you need to take care of yourself too during that time. Don't hold your breath waiting for the weekend for sleep, healthy food and self-pampering.

If you are busy during the week, try to take a 20 minute walk some part of the day. It could be at lunch at work or after dinner but try to get that in. Also pack a couple of pieces of fruit to school or work. Take 10 minutes and meditate to get your mind quieter and less caught up in the daily melodramas. This helps to keep our reactions at bay rather than to create extra friction in our lives. Also practice letting go about things so they don't fester and build up inside. All these little practices create good patterns for you and will impact your health positively.

Millions Without Health Care

Wow, I was stunned to read on webmd site that there are over 45 million in the US w/o health care. This is very scary. They discuss how heart attacks are a lot worse for those w/o health insurance. People cannot afford then the types of surgery required for optimal care and need to get care that is not adequate for the seriousness of their condition. For those making less than 25k a year over 24 percent have no health insurance. What is sad about this is that when you make less than 25k you may also be trying to save on food and getting meals that are high in saturated fat and ingredients that may lead to health problems. PLEASE get yourself some quotes here to find a program you can afford. There are low cost plans that will give you some coverage which will be helpful.
