Are you healthy? Or do you have health issues?
It is good if you are healthy because you can enjoy the things you wanted to do, you can eat what you wanted to eat; you can enjoy life to the fullest. But this situation is the reverse when you are sick or is feeling hurt or something abnormal going on in your body.
Today, there are so many people who are affected by lifestyle diseases. I am pertaining to diabetes, usually Type 2 diabetes which is due to unhealthy eating habits. So many people, especially the young usually love sugary foods, like soda or softdrinks which nutritionists say are fully-laden with sugar!
When we are young, we do not care if we eat lots of carbohydrates, lots of chocolates, cakes, ice cream and other junk foods that are usually full of unhealthy ingredients.
Parents should guide their children on healthy eating. They should not allow children to eat junk foods while sitting watching television or while playing gadgets for so many hours.
Schools are now enforcing healthy eating habits among pupils, and this is one of the best steps towards inculcating among children the value of eating healthy, whole, natural foods. It is good that their snacks consist of healthy foods instead of junk foods and sodas.
For adults, too much carbohydrates which are transformed into sugar, once ingested or digested, pose danger on one’s health. This causes blood sugar to shoot up when the digestive system could not properly transmit the sugar where it is needed, more so if there is excess sugar in the blood. And this is the start of diabetes, or pre-diabetic stage, according to physicians.
What to Do?
As per doctors’ advice, the best thing to do is to eat healthy, perform at least 30 minutes of exercise, daily, if possible, or have an active lifestyle. One just need to get up and walk inside the home, do some gardening, walk some blocks away from your home, or while in the office or in your day job, try to get up and walk. Walk to the pantry during breaks, walk to other areas of your office instead of asking the utility man or your secretary to take some papers to another office, or have some documents signed by your boss or superior.
One can device his own exercise program based on his condition or based on what he is doing on a daily basis. Instead of using your car in buying something from the nearby grocery, try to walk or if you are biking, use your bike. This way, you are already achieving the goal of having some exercise, at the same time saving on gas which is good for your purse and to the environment.
Eating right,like incorporating leafy green vegetables and other whole foods along with exercising are the best alternatives in restoring your health. Though taking synthetic medicines can do another thing, I prefer the usual, traditional way of reversing your sick situation to one that is healthy and safe, and less costly too.
Only one key is needed to have a healthy body: discipline.
