Since this week seems to be about sayings, here is one of the cornerstone ideas of traditional Chinese medicine:
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
The idea behind TCM (traditional Chinese medicine) is to keep the body in balance in the first place so that problems don’t have a chance to get started or to grow from inconsequential things into negative influences to our health. Which makes me think also:
A stitch in time saves nine.

Have anything unraveling about your health?
