Health is wealth, we all know it. The need to invest or look after your health seems like something that everyone should know and strive to do, doesn’t it? From a young age, we are taught to look after ourselves in a variety of ways from brushing our teeth in the morning, to taking regular baths or showers to eating fruit and vegetables and much more.
Deep down we all know that we should invest in our health but that doesn’t always mean we do. In fact, today, I think it’s fair to say that most of us don’t at least not as much as we should.
For example, think about this, when you’re on your lunch break at work do you have a piece of a fruit or something else like a chocolate bar or biscuits? I think the latter options are going to be the more common choice for many people.
But it’s not just our diets, investing in your health will enable you to stay fit, healthy and strong. It will reduce your risks of developing medically incurable chronic diseases. And in a world of social media, Netflix binges and the popularity of video games reaching an all-time high it’s easy to see how investing in your health can be attained. Diet and exercise are good ways but won’t prevent all health issues.
There’s a lot of temptations out there that can make you put off that healthy meal, trip to the gym or morning run isn’t there? But of course, cutting those treats out isn’t really a solution either it might make you healthier in the short term but won’t make you happier.
Investing in your health should be a daily routine. Do you know how?
You need the wellbeing acumen that ishaving the ability to be in control both physically, socially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as well. My experience shows that this acumen requires knowledge, understanding and skills to do so. Finally, but there’s got to be ways to stay healthy as well.
