  9. 9. 8.<br />Photograph by SundeipArora, via sxc.hu<br />I vow to get regular health checks. I understand that many diseases often don’t show symptoms until it’s too late. Which is why I will get periodic health checks as advised by the doctor. <br />
  10. 10. 9.<br />Photograph by Ivan Prole, via sxc.hu<br />I vow to be environmentally conscious. My health goes beyond just my personal hygiene and health. I know that when I litter or pollute or waste natural resources, I’m affecting my and my family’s health. <br />
