Speaking of health, there is the spiritual dimension of it. One of my favourite poets is Omar Khayyam, the famous 11th century Persian scientist, mathematician, astronomer, philosopher and poet, and here is my poem of the day:

Some bread, some cheese and a jug of wine,
with you beside me beneath a lush vine!
I know a great king who would, if he could,
barter his crown for that which is mine.
