Having fun could be good for thriving and health. It is generally best to nourish health and wellbeing and thereby build one's health reserves in a wide sense, and also to bulwark carefully against what is much untoward or adverse, if that can be. Since prevention is better than uncertain attempts at cure, reliable, advance information about common dangers could help as well. And if struck with disease or some sorts of troubles, good and careful information about cures and resources offer much help too. Below is a limited bundle of links:
