Are you in good health? Your health might not be perfect, but even if you have a couple of minor issues, you might still be in good health. It is important to think objectively. As hard as it may sometimes be, you must try to stay logical and not give in to emotional thinking. If you are genuinely not in good health, there is always something you can do. Stay strong. Hopefully, you will overcome this difficult time. You are not alone.
Millions of people are fighting health battles such as obesity, out of control blood sugar and Type 2 diabetes, perhaps the same health issues as you. If there is nothing immediately concerning you, consider what some people are handling. Some diseases are not only lethal but living with them is a nightmare. Inconvenience is often a best-case scenario, because pain, limitations, and severe discomfort tend to be the norm. When it comes to diseases that develop regardless of your influence, there may be little you can do. In that case, you should expect the worst and hope for the best. A stoic mindset in such a situation may be your best bet.
More importantly, most diseases affecting modern adults ARE within your control. You play a role in their development. You play a role in their prevention. These are choices, and for better or worse you must make them. Sometimes we make these decisions unwillingly, as is often the case when we neglect our well-being. But this leads us to a very, very important point:
Do not assume you will always be in good health. Things could suddenly take a turn for the worse. You could be in excellent health today and not be able to imagine seeing it decline quickly. While we will always be able to influence our health in some way, we should not forget nature is something beyond our full understanding. The human body is incredibly complex so predictions regarding the future of our well-being will never be more than an estimate.
You should not take your health for granted. Not only should you start to appreciate your current condition but you should act to increase your chances of remaining healthy tomorrow. If you have high blood sugar, you should change your diet to prevent developing Type 2 diabetes. If you are overweight, do not procrastinate anymore. The obesity epidemic is one of the reasons the incidence of Type 2 diabetes has doubled in the past decade. Obesity, even just being overweight, makes you a candidate for Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Other problems often seen in obese people with diabetes are Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Your health is vital. Do not wait until a precarious moment to realize it is something you should treasure.
