By Erick, Catholic Partnership Schools Healthy Courier | Why I think that health is important to me is be- cause it is my body that I am living in. I don’t want to live in an unhealthy body. Also, if I have a healthy body, I will live longer. Exercising is considered very healthy for your body. If I exercise I can keep my body healthy and strong.
