Some things in life, outcomes, end-points, disease can seem very far away or distanced.
When the roof needs fixing and its sunny, all you might want to do is read a book, have a beer and chill in the sun.
But the rain will come. It always does.
In our lives, most of us are born healthy. Time, lifestyle and diet lead us at times to ill health.
Eating well, watching your stress levels, and getting as much exercise as possible when the 'sun is shinning' or we are feeling good protects us during the storm or potentially prevents it happening.
'The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining.'
John F Kennedy.
