Let us Invest....

Let us Invest......

Health is a state of physical, mental, social, sexual and spiritual well-being. Contrary to the popular belief, health is not a state of absence of diseases or deformities. By making conscious and mindful decisions, let us try to gain the best health in all areas of our life. This is the most important investment we can make in our life.

The choices we make about the way we live or lifestyle we adopt are important to our health. Here are some choices we can make to help our self to stay healthy:

Abstain from using any form of tobacco.
Eat a healthy diet.
Exercise regularly.
Drink alcohol in moderation, if at all.
Never use illegal drugs.
Practice safe sex.
Use a helmet while riding our bikes and fasten seat belts when driving in a car.
We must always consult our doctor regularly for preventive health care. This may be a test, or advice from our doctor.

Preventive health services can include the following:

  • Tests (also called screenings) to check our general health or the health of certain parts of our body
  • Measurements of weight, cholesterol levels and blood pressure etc.
  • Advice about diet, exercise, tobacco, alcohol and drug use, stress and accident prevention.
  • Immunizations for both children and adults.
  • Special tests at certain times in our life, such as during pregnancy and after the age of 50 years.

The most important aspect of well being is getting educated and being aware of our self, our health, fitness & well being. For this

v Let us learn and educate ourselves to become our own "second opinion" so that we can understand and practice with perfection all aspects of treatment that our health practitioners or consultants may prescribe to us.

v Let us reclaim personal responsibility for our own health and make it a priority. When we are sick, health becomes our #1 priority, because without it we have nothing. With total health and high energy we can accomplish our dreams and heart's desires.

v Let us take charge, make changes and do what it takes to enjoy the abundant rewards of total health & well-being.

This writing, I hope, will inspire us in educating our self and equip us to take care of the health of our family. I sincerely request you to invest in preventive health care in order to lead a total, complete & fruitful life.
