Top 10 Health issues that Should be Addressed Immediately

If you are given your dream car but the catch is that you have to drive only this car for the rest of your life, what will be your reaction? You will take care of that car as much as you can.

That scenario may not be true for the number of cars you are going to have in your life but it definitely is true in the case of your mind and body.

You’ve got only 1 body and 1 mind and you have to take care of it no matter what.

So in that case, there are certainly some health issues that should be addressed immediately.

In this blog, we are going to cover the top 10 of them, let’s see how many of these health issues need your immediate attention:

1. Avoid Negative Self-talk

Negative self-talk has 4 basic types:

  1. Personalizing
  2. Filtering
  3. Catastrophizing
  4. Polarizing

And they are all not good for your mental health and fitness!

Negative self-talk is a type of mental training that slowly starts consuming the mind and can lead to insane levels of brain energy consumption.

Be it personalizing, filtering, polarizing, or catastrophizing, negative self talk is dangerous in every of it’s forms.

Now talking about how to counter the negative self-talk, remember a little self-criticism is good but overextending it will only lead to problems.

Check out a short video below on how you can take care of negative self-talk:

2. Don’t Play the Victim Card

Getting something for free from your parents as a child is a victory but as an adult, it’s a failure. And that failure is not limited only to getting things from parents.

Don’t hurt your self-esteem for a few small gains. Work hard and do things on your own.

If you need a better job, learn the skills and apply for it on merit. Don’t tell the potential employee or reference about how terrible your life is.

You might get a job but it will lead to many other problems unless you are determined to really succeed at it.

3. Activity is the Jugular Vein of Life

By nature, your body is built in a way that prefers a moving person. If you are lazy, there is no other solution than to drag yourself out of that comfort zone and start moving more often.

Live an active and fit life so that you can:

  • reduce the health costs
  • get more things done in a day, and
  • live a healthy better life

These are only a few gifts of living an active life, once you get used to it you will find many other perks.

4. Spread Happiness

No one wants to see a face that is angry all the time. If you want happiness in life, be the one who spreads it.

People will love you if they are comfortable around you. And you only receive what you spread.

Walking around with an angry face all the time can become a serious health issue and you need to get rid of it immediately.

Get rid of it for a better social life. Make the universe smile around you. Be the light in the darkness and you will light up many others like you.

5. Work on your Hobbies

Try to find new hobbies, or work on the existing ones. Again this is something related to happiness, but here you are working for your own self only.

And that hobby could be anything. Play chess, do gardening, or play any sport you like. There could be many other hobbies you can start.

A free mind is a devil’s workshop, so it is better to engage your mind in something active and fun, this way you can address many health issues immediately.

6. Workout at least 4 times a Week

There is no wealth bigger than health. If possible, workout everyday, this way it will be easier not to break the routine.

Exercise is tiring but the rewards are even bigger!

It saves you from many health issues and strength wise makes you a stronger person.

7. Take care of your Diet

Eating the wrong foods is a potential health issue that needs to be addressed immediately.

It is never a good idea to eat anything and everything whenever you want. Because food is a fuel that powers your body. So make sure that you are putting the best fuel in your body.

Balance your diet and break the wheel only on the cheat days (not more than once a week).

If you are eating more, exercise and burn the calories more because that probably is the best option for you to balance the calorie count.

8. Avoid use of Tobacco

Smoking increases the odds of heart disease. It damages blood circulation and can make you feel out of breath.

Even the packet says smoking is injurious to health but it’s a billion dollars industry and that’s why you can find a packet of cigarettes more easily than many other useful things.

The weird thing is people know the hazards and still use them. And an even bigger problem is that it always starts with a puffing of cigarette.

People who do drugs usually start from a cigarette and usually, it’s the base of all problems.

It might be difficult for you to leave smoking but you can at least try to reduce the amount of smoking. It’s a problem for your health that needs to be addressed immediately.

9. Drink more Water

Dehydration is bad for your well being.

All the laziness and dizziness that people feel mostly in summer come from lack of water in the body.

The recommended amount of water for men is 15.5 cups a day and for women 11.5 cups a day.

Though that number can fluctuate based on the demographics and climate conditions. But you should at least drink water when you are thirsty.

10. Make Peace with your Past

If you have some past memory or experience that can’t be repaired or forgotten, make peace with it.

Don’t punish yourself for things that can’t be fixed. It’s life and there is a right time for everything.

If you are past it and the problem is out of your hands, leave it as it is.

Accept who you are now and for the future promise yourself that it won’t be repeated again.
