Doc’s Christmas advice

Dr. Drew Werner

Twas the week before ChristmasAnd all through our valley,People were bustling,No time to dally.With blood pressures risingAnd not a moment to spare,Perhaps it’s timeFor a breath of fresh air.The mountains are calling,Topped with white snow,Just being hereIs a blessing we know.On our wish list to SantaAs our thoughts tend to driftLet us not forget our healthA truly precious gift.Take time to relax,And get plenty of sleep,Exercise and eat wellYour health you shall keep.For not by accidentAre we who we are,Our health and happinessCome from following a star.I hope you can shareWith your family and friendsThe joy of this season -And not let it end.Thank you for reading,And giving to meThe privilege of caring For you and your familyFrom my heart this wish comesTo all far and near,Have a very merry ChristmasAnd a happy new year!Dr. Drew Werner of the Eagle Valley Medical Center writes a weekly column for the Daily.
