We all know health is wealth. Unfortunately, so many people treat their health status as unimportant. Treating our health as a serious necessity makes you totally fit.
There are some day to day acts, or should I say mistakes, we engage in that could actually be detrimental to our health.
Here are some of the ways we could endanger our health maybe without knowing:
1. Poor Eating Habit:
This is one aspect people tend to overdo. When you eat right, your health feels right. Fruits, vegetables are important part of healthy living. You don’t necessarily have to eat heavy meals or even complete the three square meal, but it is necessary to have a complete balanced diet.
When poor eating habit lingers on for long, it affects your mental and physical being.
Also, excess fat is not right for the body. Try to eat less, avoid oversize portions, and replace sugary drinks with water. So many people are unnecessarily overweight and this can pose a health risk. Same thing goes with people that are underweight.
2. Little or no exercise:
The importance of exercise can never be overlooked. so many people are guilty of it, especially those in office environments. It does not take much of your time when you stretch your hands and legs.
Sitting on the same spot for long hours could later lead to stroke, fat accumulation and many other health risks.
Even if you dont have an office job, take out time to walk round the house, register at a gym center if you can just to keep fit.
3. Excessive thinking:
It is not a big deal when you think and have time alone, in fact, it’s advisable to do that once in a while. But it becomes an issue when you do it too often. Excessive thinking could lead to depression if not checked.
Those likely to internalize stress are in greater danger. It is good to be in control of your thoughts, before they have a troll on you.
4. Reckless Lifestyle:
This is also a way people, especially youths endanger themselves. Excess alcohol is linked to a greater risk of high blood pressure, high levels of blood fats, and heart failure.
In addition, the extra calories can lead to weight gain, a threat to the heart’s health. Smoking, extra loud music, keeping a sad face constantly is unhealthy and also a way of endangering your health.
5. Isolation from the world:
So many people like to act like they enjoy been sadists. They shut down the world and create a barrier between themselves and those around them. The importance of always having someone to talk to is deep and shouldn’t be overlooked.
People with stronger connections to family, friends, and society in general tend to live longer, healthier lives. They hardly have many things to worry about, everything just feels perfect. Everyone needs alone time, but you should still reach out to others and keep in touch whenever you can.
6. Wallowing in boredom:
Truth is, we have our days when everything feels not so right, when worries takes a great part of our lives, but we shouldn’t let this completely affect us. Some people take life so seriously and hardly find time to relax and chill. It doesn’t hurt to go see movies, visit friends or amusement parks. Just take your time and enjoy life and take it one step at a time.
Remember life is quite short, so live healthy, stay healthy, play healthy and make your stay here count.
