Why is it important to be health conscious?
Recent studies indicate that 9 out of 10 individuals are not getting the amount of nutrition and exercise that their body requires on a daily basis. This, accompanied by the presence of everyday stress and tension from work, can affect and damage your overall health.
An individual’s wellness depends on his/her lifestyle – food and diet, physical exercise, and stress management. With the right discipline and consistency, you too can live the healthy life. Eating greens and exercising can go a long way… For optimal function, the average nutritional and physical activity required is about 5 cups of veggies and 10,000 steps a day. Vegetables and fruits provide many health benefits, as does daily exercise. Being consistent in living a healthy lifestyle decreases the risk for certain ailments like diabetes, heart diseases, cognitive decline, vitamin deficiencies, obesity, and even cancer, by 33% which is a remarkable difference.
Battling with workplace stress
The office is one of the most stressful places to be in, regardless of what your work is. Deadlines, meetings, presentations, and especially overtime workload can be frustrating. What’s worse is that employees might even bring this stress home with them. A study from the United States concluded that people who experience excessive stress at work tend to become behaviorally unfit and “vent their frustrations toward less powerful individuals”.
To summarise, living healthy gives countless health benefits such as:
- Cleaner body (due to antioxidants)
- Better immune system
- Improved metabolism
- Lower risk for diseases
- Excellent blood circulation
- Higher stamina
- Less work tension
- Lowered stress levels
…and many more. It’s never too late for a change of lifestyle. Give it a try and you’ll be satisfied with the results.
