Be prepared for the various climate and season changes. Keep the medical records of your family updated.

You should be able to complete your morning chores without any difficulties. If you press your nails, they should turn red. The sclera of healthy eyes should be white in color. These are the signs of a healthy body. Talk to your family members about their health often and be a role model.
