Is Health Being Taken Seriously These Days?
Health. It is an essential thing in one’s life. After all, the quality of a person’s life depends on how good his health is. Eating a good diet, getting decent sleep, taking time to care for oneself, and staying away from harmful addictions are things that a person does for his health. But being honest, how many of us actually care for our health? We can get so carried away with our lives that we deprive our bodies of proper care. Be it staying up late to complete an assignment or forgetting to eat.
Consequences Of Not Taking Care Of Oneself
Neglecting to care for oneself can have drastic effects. According to Dr. Jody Kricher, symptoms include abdominal and chest pain, fainting, shortness of breath, headaches, or irregular heartbeats. Being constantly tired can mean an unhealthy sleep cycle which can also be a symptom.
According to Lambton Public Health, physical symptoms can impact the mental well-being of a person negatively. The mental health in turn worsens the physical health and this damaging cycle can continue.
Ways to Take Care Of Oneself
Bad health care can shorten a person’s life expectancy so it is important to know how to take care of oneself and counter these negative effects.
Eating a healthy balanced diet, getting enough sleep, and exercising are some of the most effective ways to take care of your health. Taking care of yourself physically is a good way but your mental health also matters. Acknowledging your emotions and feelings and maintaining relations can also have an effect. Not using drugs, tobacco, and alcohol as well as staying aware of one’s body intake is another way to take care of your health.
Are People Nowadays Taking Their Health Seriously?
It is no secret that people’s lives are very busy and some of them barely have enough time to spare. Taking some time out to care for one’s body is important and should be encouraged.
