What does health mean to you?: Many people think of health as the food choices you make and your physical stamina but it is really so much more than that. Health goes beyond just physical status and includes mental and emotional health as well. Being healthy to me means that you are able to live a lifestyle in which you are able to do all the things that make you happy. For some people that is going for a 10 mile run every day, but for...
