Health Is Wealth


I don’t think I understood this statement properly until last month. I just want to share how important our health is. Without our health all the things we are working towards and our possessions means nothing.

We only have one body and it is vital that you are aware of what you put inside it. Now I am not saying become a health freak and do nothing but eat well, (although that may not be a bad idea!) but do understand what you are putting inside your body and what it can do to your health long term. This could be beverages, food or medication. It even goes down to the lotion you use on your skin. Of course we won’t know everything, but it is better to have a little knowledge than none at all. And in this fast paced life we live today people tend not to have time to be conscious of these little things.

Your body will help you if you help your body. For example a car that runs on petrol. Now if you were to put diesel in the car, it will damage the engine and you may need to replace it. The thing about our bodies is that even when you put bad things in your body it may not necessarily break down straight away; (unless it is something toxic!) your body will try to work with what you are giving it.  But it will come with long term effects, and then something serious might pop up. The difference is that we can’t just buy a new engine and everything will be fine, we have one body and we really should take care of it.

Below are some tips which you can incorporate into your day to day life:

-Drink more water

-Eat more vegetables and a little fruits (fruits are very high in sugar although natural)

-Try to do 30 minutes of exercise a day, even if it is just a walk

-Eat less saturated fats and more unsaturated fats, like avocado, seeds and nuts

-Be consistent!

From time to time you can treat yourself with a slice of cake or a cookie. Just balance it all out so you don’t overdo it.

If you are not going to take anything from this post, all I ask you to do is make one small change that your body will benefit from. Your body will thank you for it!
