Health – a word of five letters, and yet it is often seen struggling with a four-letter word, that is, ‘life’.
Life often gets in the way of good health; in the moments when we want to gobble the junk food available in tempting packages, when we neglect our sleep to earn few extra bucks, when we callously plug in earphones and hear loud music at parties, and even when we neglect hygiene and brushing teeth properly.
In our day to day life, we thus tend to mess up our health. Some of our habits and prolonged ignorance towards health care, can also lead to such diseases which are incurable or may cause lasting damage to our body system.
Then should we stop living life? No! We can live a healthy life even while living each moment and enjoying the sinful indulgence. How?
To start with, visiting hospitals for regular heath check-ups is highly advisable.
Supplementing bad with good is equally crucial; if you have hogged on to street food for evening snacks, make sure you keep the dinner light and choose a healthy menu. A well-cooked bowl of oats can be a good option here.
Diet is an important factor that controls our health. Mindful eating is the key to a good health. Try to avoid unhealthy food options as much as possible. Once in a while, if you do indulge in such food items, make sure that you always compensate for the junk that you put in your body. Incorporate regular exercise in your routine. Take stairs instead of elevators whenever possible. Drink a lot of water to avoid dehydration. Include a serving of fresh fruits in your breakfast to stay active through the day and enhance your body immunity. Morning or evening walks and keeping stress away can bring about a lot of difference in our life. These small little steps can take you a long way!
With technology blooming at a fast pace, advancement in health care is visible too. Leading a healthy life is now just a phone call away. Yes, now people can easily call and have doctors and nurses coming to their homes to treat them and take care of them. Home care is a convenient option for those who can’t go for regular check-ups because of some serious ailments.
Now, with a little care and awareness, we can be healthy and don’t have to compromise on living our life the way we want.
