What's more important than your health?

By Edward T. Creagan, M.D. March 9, 2011

Reading the blog comments, I'm reminded that everyone struggles with the same sorts of issues — relationships, meaning, purpose, health and wellness.

I particularly noted several recent entries about how people choose to spend their time. When you spend more time on your lawn or picking out a car than you do taking care of your health, your priorities are probably out of whack.

Anyone who has struggled with illness or any type of health setback knows one searing truth: If you're in pain, if you're unsettled in spirit and if your health fails, everything else drops away. And so does your chance to use your gifts and skills to make this world a better place.

What better reason could there be for taking care of your health?
