Gudi Padwa - Happy Healthy New Year
A New Year, A New Victory!
Strive to be different
If the ‘Gudi’ symbolises victory, let this ‘Gudi Padwa’ be an occasion for you to win a different battle – the battle with your own self. Let this instance be a turnaround when you decide that life can be thrilling and adventurous without alcohol, tobacco or drug abuse. Life can be enjoyed without putting up excessive weight by not eating unnecessarily nor eating unnecessary things. Life can also be free from unwanted hassles if you promote cleanliness and hygiene around you. To sum it up, life can indeed be more beautiful if you can know your probable future and prevent the undesired from intruding.
Be your own fortune-teller
No matter how much you try, nothing can insure you against the difficulties that lie ahead. However, the least that can be done is to prevent a probable tragedy. But how do you know the probable future? How do you know if something bad might happen? Can you win the race against time?
Start by asking yourself some sour questions. If you can answer them honestly, the future can be sweeter.
- Do I know how much harm I’m doing to myself and others when I’m smoking? In case you are a smoker and if the answer is ‘no’, then follow the link ( http://www.indushealthplus.com/tobacco-affects/ ). If the answer is ‘yes’ and you insist on smoking, do a CT scan to see how your lung looks. Who knows if you haven’t got cancer already!
- Do I know what alcohol abuse can lead to, whether it’s me or the people around? If you are an alcoholic and the answer is ‘no’ follow the link (article on alcohol). If ‘yes’ and you want to continue, find out how your liver looks like with an LFT, know your cholesterol level, and check your heart condition. You might be in trouble soon!
- Do I know the consequences if I do not reduce my weight to an optimum level? If you are overweight or obese and the answer is ‘no’ read (link to article on obesity). If ‘yes and you dont feel like doing anything about it, know your body mass index and definitely find out about your heart with an ECG. Its highly probable that there is a blockage in your heart!
- Do I wash my hands with soap before eating or cooking food, and after defecation? You won’t have to read an article if you don’t do this. You will probably be suffering from any number of intestinal and/or other infections and diseases!
New Year, New Hopes
A new beginning is always associated with new hopes and dreams. Let not the dreams be ruined. Let not the hopes die. Make a promise to yourself and promise those around you. Gift yourself and gift your loved ones the joy of good health.
