Latin term or phrase: cura ut valeas
in letter
English translation:take care of yourself to be well
Explanation:
cura = take care (of yourself), verb "curo, are, avi, atum", imperative present,
2nd person of the singular

ut = in order to, conjunction that governs the subjunctive
valeas = be well, verb "valeo, es, ere, valui, valitum", subjunctive present, 2nd
person of the singular.

=> take care (of yourself) in order to be well/to be well/if you want to be well

I agree with Stilius though : in EN, it's the equivalent of "take care", "take care of yourself"
but if you wondered what "ut valeas" could be, you know now !
