Are you the type who gets up in the morning feeling no enthusiasm at all to start the day right? Do you go through your daily activities in the office like a robot, performing your tasks in a routine manner that your office mates are calling you Robocop behind your back? When the bell rings signifying the end of the working day, do you breathe a sigh of relief and hurry back to your home in order to dive straight into the bed.
If you answered in the affirmative to all the queries raised in the aforementioned paragraph and you have been doing all these for some time already, it could only mean that you are not in the pink of health and that you need to seek medical treatment.
Being Unhealthy vs Being Healthy
In contrast, a person who is healthy will wake up with fervor and passion the moment he opens up his eyes. He will also be more fired up to begin his daily chores, maybe even whistling along the way. He will also have plenty of time to socialize with his colleagues as he moves from one department to the other. At the end of the working day, he still has time to grab something to drink at the local pub or does some other chore like grocery shopping or reading books at the nearest library.
Do you see what difference a good health can make in the life of an individual? Being healthy is way better than being sickly. Therefore, it is vital that you strive to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating a balanced diet, having regular exercise and visiting your attending physician. Read the succeeding paragraphs to know the drawbacks of being unhealthy.
First, you will look older than your actual chronological age. This may sound like a shallow reason, but in a world where first impressions really matter, you might want to think about this more conscientiously. It is not flattering and you might lose a job offer along the way. You may ask how that is possible. Well, if you give people the wrong impression that you are not taking care of yourself, they might assume that you also do not know how to take care of your clients or the needs of your client. They will then decide to look for a better partner with a more pleasing personality.
Second, you will have a higher chance of getting the dreaded lifestyle diseases like diabetes mellitus, hypertensive urgency and even cancer. A person does not get sick in a snap of a finger. It takes days, weeks and most of the time, years of physical abuse on the body to show its effects. If you are the type who gorges on fatty, salty or excessively sweet food, you are in a high risk group. Your chances will double if you do not get any physical workout like a thirty-minute cardiovascular exercise at least three times a week.
Then there is also the subject of vices like too much beer drinking and cigarette smoking. If you are always committing these mistakes, expect liver cirrhosis and lung cancer. Does that sound nice?
