If there is any one factor that can determine your future more than any other, it is your health. When health fails, we loose power and influence.
Losing your health may bring about financial ruin. People with health problems often have trouble remaining employed. If you miss too many days at one job, it may jeopardize your search for a new job. Persons who constantly call into the job sick are the first to go when the economy begins to tighten up. Even in a strong economy, employers do not want to keep these people on the payroll as it can cost the company a substantial amount of money in benefits.
Here are some tips to avoid illness and to preserve your opportunity to improve your life situation.
Eat the right foods. You need a healthy diet to stay well. One which is balanced in nutrients is essential to keep you from getting sick. You will need carbs for energy, protein for building damaged tissue and fruits and veggies for vitamins and minerals.
You got to move it, move it... That is right, exercise is good for your health. You may feel that you are so out of shape that you cannot exercise. Begin somewhere, even if you must sit in a chair to exercise, toning those muscles helps your body to be a more efficient machine. In the long run, you will be a healthier human.
Spend time with friends. Everyone needs some time with other people. If we are only involved with ourselves, and spend all our time at the computer or watching television, we are not going to take care of ourselves. A friend can help us to see hope in the most desperate situations. Hope can lead us to have better health.
Protecting your health is an investment in your future. As long as you remain healthy, you can change your own destiny.
