There are some people who assume that living with a lot of other people in a village is hard. They have neighbours that they have to speak with and be in contact with all the time. Perhaps you can think about being a good example by showing that you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle. You may never know, the people that you will meet within the same village may become inspired and would like to live the type of lifestyle that you live as well.
There are some things that you need to ask yourself to know if you are doing your best to be healthy:
- Do you consume the right food products?
Take a look at your diet and what you eat. Do you eat more junk food than healthy greens and fresh fruits? Perhaps you prefer carbonated beverages over Kukicha. Ask yourself how many glasses of water you have already taken. You need more than 8 glasses of water every day so that your body will find it easier to digest the food that you have taken.
- Are you able to maintain the weight that you are supposed to be in?
There is a big possibility that you have gained some weight recently. The reason why you have gained weight may vary. It can be because you got pregnant, it may also be because you have not paid attention to your diet recently. If you are not within your normal range of weight, you need to make an effort to lose weight. You can do this by paying attention to your food and by doing more exercises throughout the day.
- Do you smoke?
If you smoke, you know that you have to stop now. There are so many diseases that have stemmed from being exposed to smoke. It may not be obvious but lungs that are exposed to cigarette smoke also age faster than the lungs of people who do not smoke. If you still smoke now, you need to find ways on how to quit. It will not be easy. There will be days when you just want to give up and reach for your pack of cigarettes again but if you want to live a long and healthy life, it is necessary that you quit smoking now. You may ask for help from family members and friends. They can help motivate you to stay on track.
- Do you visit your doctor regularly?
Even though you are not feeling anything, you still need to keep your annual checkups with your doctor. This will help make sure that your health is being monitored appropriately. If there are some things that you are not feeling yet, they can be detected early and the right treatments can be done at the soonest possible time.
You have to remember that having a positive attitude will always let you lead a longer and happier life so try to reduce the stressful events that you go through and make sure that you will be surrounded by people who will make you happy.
