W I T H S P I R I T NEVER SETTLE FOR LESS THAN EXTRAORDINARY! 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 care about is sick, you move mountains to get him or her the best care possible. Perhaps it is time for us to move mountains in our quest to stay well in the first place. When it comes to your health, never settle for less than the extraordinary. Choose a health care provider and Forrest General Hospital so that you will leave feeling bet- ter than when you walked in. Never accept unanswered questions about your health; never have lingering doubts about a diagnosis or a treatment. It's time to cultivate an extraordinary "health style" that keeps you feeling your physical and emotional best. Mag- azines like Spirit of Women can help provide fresh per- spective on achieving and maintaining this kind of good health—nutritious foods, family values, financial planning, thriving through a health crisis and better relationships with hospitals and clinical care providers that put YOU first. Commit to living an extraordinary "health style:" Eat the best, exercise, stay on top of your diagnostic screenings, be happy and spend time with the people and things that bring out the best in you.
