Life Goals: Love and Take Care of Yourself
Everyday of our lives, we are working so hard for our families, to be successful in our career, to achieve our dreams and to be able to influence others with our skills, talents, and intelligence. We are so busy with many things and almost of our hours are spent for work, neglecting our health for not having time to see a doctor, rest, relax, or even eat. With everyday routine, a common family set up include a father waking up early to be ready for work to provide for the family and stay up late at night to finish paperwork, while a mother takes care of their children, prepare meals, does the laundry and house cleaning. Even single men and women can’t find time to take good care of themselves because they’re also too busy working and socializing, thus ending eating in a fast food, restaurant or easy-to-prepare but not nutritious meals.
According to studies, overweight or obesity is continuously increasing annually, because junk food and processed food are being falsely advertised, but do not really give any health benefits. We don’t realize the importance of our bodies, but we have to be enlightened and be serious about loving and taking care our bodies, because it is our only vessel to enjoy life to the fullest, with our families and friends. It is convenient picking up fresh fruits and vegetables in the supermarket, rather than selecting processed food. Fresh bananas are easy to grab, stirring a glass of milk and eating a homemade food are easy with time management. It is better to consume beans and grains that refined sugars, whole wheat bread than white bread, oatmeals and cereals, honey, brown or muscovado sugar than white sugar, and brown rice than white rice.
It is really hard setting a time for exercise, but you need to do it to burn calories and increase your body endurance and strength, so setting an alarm to your smartphone every day for your thirty minutes per day exercise will really help. Once you are used to exercising, it becomes a part of your system, a hobby and eventually a normal everyday routine you won’t miss out, and you’ll surely see a significant improvement not only physically but also psychologically. The human body is created to move, but prolonged sitting in front of your computer or all the paperwork give a signal to our bodies about shutting down, so it is important to exercise like using the staircase instead of the elevator, walking instead of driving nearby friend’s house or grocery store, and take some time running, swimming or playing your favorite sport on your day off.
