Today, most of us are already aware that it is our daily choices that largely determine our eventual well-being. If we neglect the needs of our body, then we cannot blame anyone – only ourselves. Our body has no obligation to “forgive” our negligence – if it receives too much bad and chemical substances, it has the right to cause problems.
It is we ourselves who must at some point understand when it is time to change and make healthier choices. Older people usually tell us from experience that it is good to be aware of this when young. There are some damages that can arise from our choices that we can’t fix after – no matter how much we want it or how much we are willing to try.
Where do we make the most mistakes?
Everything depends of course on the person, but in every country we have access to the same things – there are similar stimulants and food products everywhere. Today, we can no longer give the excuse of lack of awareness about the harmfulness of certain health choices, only if we live in places where there is no access to the internet or books.
Everyone now has to stand up and take responsibility for themselves by educating themselves properly and making the right decisions. This will definitely require some effort on our part.
What are the examples of popular bad health choices?
The most common example is the habit of smoking- cigarettes, tobacco, anything. Anyone who intends to take care of their health must not smoke. There is no justification for this – it is neither healthy nor necessary for anything. Smoking has simply been popular for years – lots of people think that it helps them de-stress. We are used to cigarettes as a society because they are everywhere – in the media, in literature. Unfortunately, over the years, we have now somewhat embraced the habit – and this is not the right message for young people who could start smoking too early in life.
Smoking is bad for everything – skin, organs, nails. Of course, our lungs suffer the most, but when we examine the causes of many serious diseases, smoking is usually at the top of many lists.
It is quite unfortunate that many have decided to neglect this reality in favor of “enjoying themselves”. For smokers, it is worth remembering this when they reach for another cigarette. You can’t smoke and take care of your health at the same time – they are both mutually exclusive.
Interestingly, many have developed a similar unhealthy attitude towards food as well – which is especially complicated because we can’t just stop eating. It is not possible. Today, however, we see how many people die each year as a result of overweight and obesity-related diseases – these numbers are staggering. Despite the fact that doctors have been telling us for years that food is supposed to be a way of survival for us – and not just a pleasure – it has not been this way for a long time.
It is very easy to find information about recommended foods – as well as those that are worth avoiding. The truth is, we have to find an eating system that works for us – something that we can support and that we simply like. No diet will be effective unless it becomes our way of life at some point. We will only be healthy when we take the right food supplements in the right amounts.
