Being Healthy: Is it even worth it?
We come across people at the gym, and in our day-to-day life that seems to be absolute “health nuts.” You will find them dedicating hours to meal preps, poring over the ingredient list of everything they buy at the supermarket, and making sure to have very strict meals that look downright unappetizing because they want “to be healthy.” At the opposite end of the spectrum, you will find people who live on mostly junk food and everything unhealthy imaginable, and they are simply “treating themselves.”
It can be very difficult to place ourselves between these two polar opposites, but there can be a compromise made. You do not have to starve your body and constantly deprive it of good food, and at the same time, you do not have to overindulge yourself either. Being able to keep that moderation balanced is the best possible way for one to stay healthy.
You might question the health benefits of trying to watch your diet and staying healthy, and as much as we would love to say there are not any, there are quite a few. Having a healthy lifestyle which involves a balanced diet and exercise increases your life expectancy, and reduces the likelihood of your developing a plethora of health problems later on, and this includes cardiovascular issues, diabetes, blood pressure, problems with breathing, uric acid issues and so on. Plus, it helps your body have more energy, stays light, and allow you to concentrate better. You may have already noticed that when you eat unhealthy food, you feel lethargic and just want to sleep, whereas you feel good about yourself and energetic when you eat a healthy meal. So, for the sake of your future health and wellbeing, there is actually a lot of reasons why you should stay healthy.
