Today, Coco Tortoise’s Health Corner is presenting the three blatant excuses that people use for letting their health go down the drain. They are very intentional and could be prevented if more care or concern is given to taking responsibility for their health.
There are many other reasons I am sure but only three will be discussed so that you will have an idea where I am coming from. I will show you how to help yourself by using specific examples. If you want to enjoy a longer and healthier lifestyle, it wouldn’t hurt reading this article in its entirety. Sometimes it is beneficial to adhere to well intended advice.
People live their lives making the most ridiculous excuses without a care for how family and friends could be affected. Forget about other people, it would be in your best interest to follow a path that would give you a better chance for happier and healthier living.
All it takes is an awareness of what is really going on in your environment and taking care of your health journey. Together , let’s take a look at where many of us go wrong. Then, we will also take a look at possible solutions.
The first excuse is, “I am not an expert.”
What do you mean by that ?
You don”t have to be an expert to eat good food. You just have to pay attention to what goes into your body.What’s wrong with eating lot’s of fruits and vegetables? There is nothing like a fresh salad rammed with natural fruits and/or vegetables.
One of my personal favorite fruit salad is made with papaya and kiwi because they are great for high blood pressure. I use this salad at least once a week. I am sharing the recipe below.
PAPAYA AND KIWI SALAD
One cup of ripe chunked papaya
One cup of ripe chunked kiwi
One cup of cut up lettuce
One half cup of baby spinach
Salad dressing of your choice(optional)
Toss all ingredients together. Place on a plate or in a bowl. Drizzle with homemade salad dressingmade with olive oil. white vinegar and cayenne pepper. Then, enjoy this delicious salad.
Those who want to have fish, poultry, tofu or other meats could indulge paying attention to portions. Limit your starches and carbohydrates to control diabetes.
The second excuse is, “I don’t have enough money to go to the doctor.”
With all the free clinics at your disposal, you are telling me there is not one that you could choose from to find out about your blood, urine and stool levels, whether you have high blood pressure, diabetes, chlolesterol, heart or thyroid issues?
Don’t you want to know why your eyes are fuzzy or why you just ran into the mailbox? You should get your eyes checked out yearly. I did after 5 years and found out that I have full blown irreversible glaucoma. Take my advice!
Also. you keep asking everyone to repeat what they just said. You might as well get your ears checked out too! Help is available. Read a little further.
Universal health care is a health care system that provides health care and financial protection to all citizens of a particular country. It is not only available to citizens who are ill but also to those who are well and need to be checked out. The idea is to have services for citizens without causing a financial burden. For more information, as an example, please take a look at wikepedia. Check out what is available in your country and take advantage of this opportunity.
The third excuse is, “I am planning a big event that requires all of my time right now. I just can’t schedule an appointment with Dr. XYZ.”
I hope you know that I am just making light humor to jolt you into the mindset of taking care of you. No one is going to do it for you. This is a something you have to do for yourself.
The black dress joke is reality. It glaringly shows that people will show up to mourn you, after you are gone! It is your job to let that dress stay hanging wherever it was hanging. They could wear it. But, let it not be for you!
I am speaking straight up, plain as daylight.
According to author Georges, “You are a treasure that needs to be checked out and given you need to shine with all of your glory.”
These 3 blatant excuses do not sit well with me and I will not entertain them. Not being an expert, not having any money and not enough time should not prevent you from making sure your health status is verified.
We discussed 3 blatant excuses that people use to postpone healthcare and solutions were offered to promote healthcare. It is easier to take care of your health now rather than wait for health issues to pop up due to procrastination. Honestly, I don’t know about you, but it seems easier.
For your health, you should make an effort to eat properly, find decent healthcare and make time to verify health status now before it is too late. Your good health is the foundation towards happy and healthy living.
Excuses will not bring beneficial results. Positive action on your part will do so. Using excuses are like travelling a well trodded road to nowhere.
