Healthy Lifestyle Basics

Be Aware

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”

-Benjamin Franklin

Testing and immunization are key factors of prevention. Since kids are the most susceptible to diseases, vaccination may be key for diseases such as influenza and pneumococcal infections. You may be susceptible to certain diseases or infections. Consider the range of immunizations you may need.

Another part of prevention is going through screening tests for diseases or conditions that are silent but treatable. Testing can help you understand what conditions you have. It can also encourage you to continue preventive habits for certain diseases. Screening for some silent conditions is the only way to be sure that you do or do not have them. Undergo urine and blood testing to check for diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol levels in your blood, among others.

Nutrition

Poor nutrition is one of the main contributing factors of lifestyle diseases. Such lifestyle diseases include heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Changing your health can be as simple as adopting healthy eating habits.

Being aware of your nutrition does not mean that you have to follow a “diet.” There are a number of different eating patterns that contribute to health. Remember that what you eat will affect more than your weight. Be mindful of the snacks, drinks and meals you eat daily.

Medical Professionals

A regular visit to the doctor for personal health checkups is very important due to the increasing occurrence of lifestyle diseases. We have the responsibility of guarding our personal health and well-being if we want to live longer. It is unfortunate that we are losing friends and family every day as a result of the so called lifestyle diseases. Make sure you’re visiting a doctor to be aware of your current health.

Fitness

Keeping fit is another ingredient of maintaining good personal health. As much as possible we should strive to always incorporate exercising in our daily routine. To take charge of your personal health, look for small ways to add exercise to your day. You could stretch for ten minutes before work, do lunges as you brush your teeth or complete sit ups during commercial breaks.
