Healthy Living with Basic Health Care Tips (Part 1)

Let’s keep our minds and bodies in check by following some health care tips. Our health is important so we should always remind ourselves to take care of it. Here are a few guidelines that might help make our lives a little longer.

This is something that your first grade teacher taught you. Remember the food pyramid? Get the right amount of starch, proteins, and lots of vitamins and minerals. Stock up on fruits and veggies.  Eat three balanced meals a day.

How much do you value your health? Do you still get enough rest in the midst of your fast paced lifestyle? Your need sleep and your body knows it. Here’s a piece of health care advice: try to pause from what you’re doing if it’s already midnight and you need to get back to work at six in the morning. Your health is more important than that deadline or promotion.

One of the hardest things to do for some people is to exercise. Exercise is important as it rids your body of unwanted calories and stored fat. It makes you feel and look good.

Part of the reason why our body stores excess fat aside from lack of exercise is because sometimes we eat too much. Or some of us drink and smoke excessively. One of the most disregarded of health care tips is self-control. Don’t eat too much. Don’t drink too much. Don’t even sleep too much.

Doctors say that drinking a glass of wine everyday is actually a healthy habit. But smoking? And what about drug usage? You know it’s not good for you, so why do it? Research claims that smoking is beneficial to people with mental disorders. But research also claims that smoking can cause lung cancer, emphysema and other pulmonary diseases, and aggravate heart disease. Everyone knows this and yet millions of people around the world smoke. Everyone knows that taking drugs is bad, and yet people still indulge.
