There are some things in life that are worth doing well because "average" is just not good enough. Health for yourself and your family is one of those things. When someone you love is sick, you move mountains to get him or her the best care possible. Perhaps it's also time for us to move mountains in our quest to stay well in the first place. On the path to your best health now, never settle for less than the extraordinary. Choose a health care provider and a hospital that leave you feeling better than when you walked in. Never accept unan- swered questions about your health; never have lingering doubts about a diagnosis or a treatment. Isn't it time to cultivate an extraordinary "health style," the unique way you live that keeps you feeling your physical and emotional best? Magazines like Spirit of Women can help provide fresh perspec- tive on achieving and maintaining this kind of good health—delicious good-for-you food, family values, financial planning, thriving through a health crisis, beauty secrets, and better relationships with hospi- tals and clinical care providers that put YOU first. Commit to living an extraordinary "health style": Eat the best, move joyfully, stay on top of your diag- nostic screenings, laugh, love and spend time with the people and things that bring out the best in you.
