How do You Value Health?–A Very Interesting Article!

“Health competes with other values, including wealth, power, security, knowledge,
and social acceptance.” How would you rate health?

“Behaviors can be ‘health-related’ without being ‘health directed’.”

“An additional issue is that of proximal versus distal goals.”

“Health could be viewed as an intermediate goal or as an end in and of itself. In other words, being healthy may facilitate our achievement of other valued goals or may be valued independently of other goals.”
