If I ask you the question ‘What’s your health worth?’ I’m guessing you have some kind of answer ready. Like: ‘A lot.’ But if I were to push you on it, to get you to really explore the question, what would you come up with?

Get a sheet of paper and write down all the things your health allows you to do. Then price it out. For example: every day that you are healthy, you get to earn x amount of dollars from your job or work. This one may be the easiest to calculate. Now write down the other things that make your life worth living, like ‘enjoy your hobbies, play with your kids, grandkids or pets, be intimate with your partner, get dressed by yourself, make your own meals, etc.’ What are those things worth to you?
