and university students who take care of themselves may rarely
or never become ill. In the American conception, maintaining
one’s health entails these elements:
- Eating a balanced
- Getting enough rest
- Exercising regularly
- Not smoking or using drugs
- Following safe-sex

who can easily become so engrossed with their studies that
they fail to attend to their health. Taking care of your health
as a student requires planning and discipline.
Many people in the United States seek
information about their health problems before they go to a doctor.
In recent years Americans have been
paying increased attention to the special health
concerns of women. Female students from China might
benefit from that fact.
