7 Tishrei, 5774
Yom Kipur is coming and that's a time when hearts are filled with serious thoughts.
The nifty thing about Judaism is that life IS a do-over. We can start with fresh slates by making changes in our beliefs and behaviors. Gradual improvement is the key, not killing yourself over "Instant Makeovers."
Here's a great overview of Yom Kipur.
Okay, put your spiritual power to work on your physical realities.
Here's a colorized video of your heart's biscuspid valves and other nifty parts, hard at work.

Here's a kid-friendly video about the brain and nervous system. This one is kid-kosher too: KIDS' Health.
Want to know more about your marvelous, miraculous body? See http://mrfordsclass.net/, which holds lots of funny, interesting and educational videos about the rest of the human body. I suggest that anyone in high school or college-level anatomy and health courses look these over. Your teachers will appreciate that ;^D
When you're ready to resolve some sort of medical, mental health or disability issue (to the best of your ability), be sure to read doctor-recommended E-book or print edition EMPOWER Yourself to Cope with a Medical Challenge.
I'm preparing for Yom Kipur with intropsection, studying relevant texts and a low-key lifestyle. I want to make it through the fast in my usual "No-problem" style despite rising heat and humidity.
I pray for the ever-better health of my readers and the wider world daily.
Face Your Medical Problems with Dignity. Face Your Future with Optimism.
Fire up your resolve to be better in body, mind and spirit.
