Should you make a Change?

We go on when we are young doing what we please when it comes to eating or drinking what we want, good or bad it didn’t seem to bother us.

Now does that seem to bother us today? Yes in some cases it does it could be the reason our health is what it is today or it could not be.

I know in my case for example that I did a lot of things when I was younger that wasn’t healthy. Some things were I smoked a lot of cigarettes and whatever if you know I mean for about seven years didn’t think anything about it, all my friends did.

The only reason and I’m not sure about this was I guess that’s what the going thing was then. It wasn’t the only thing I drank a lot of beer and liquor and whatever came along I just didn’t care.

There had to be a change I couldn’t go on like that when you almost lose your life that’s a big reason to make that change. That’s what will happen if we don’t make a lifestyle change. But I survived BARELY!

By the Grace of God.

Should you eat Healthier?

When it came to eating whatever was the quickest thing and usually fast foods was the answer. I call it junk food now because that is what it is junk.

We only get one chance at life we better make it count.

With that being said, do you think what we do when we are younger effects our health today? Not everybody is the same some people do far worse and some people are far less.

When we are young and some of us even when we are old don’t take vitamins or supplements to give our body what it doesn’t get through our diet.

The truth is we have to make it a habit of doing things to keep us healthy as we get older we have to make a Lifestyle change.

That’s right a Lifestyle change this includes everything that comes along with it.

Exercise yes this is one we can’t slack on. Staying active getting our daily exercise and whatever that might be walking, running, jogging. It could be lifting weights doing push-ups or sit-ups riding a bike playing sports anything and everything will add years to our life.

Diet and eating right is another thing that’s just as important as exercise. Eating more fruits and vegetables, eating healthy garden foods if possible. There is usually a farmers market somewhere nearby if not try to find one you can get your produce from. Having your meals at regular times instead of eating when you are hungry.

Sleep, getting the right amount of this will keep you refreshed and more energetic. It will keep you more alert with a better sense of understanding. It will keep your body functioning the way it should when all this is used together.

I know if you are young and wanting to make the right lifestyle change decisions. Then sometimes you may have to change the friends you run around with especially the ones that try to lead you in the wrong direction.

Not all will have this problem but I’m speaking for the ones who do. Peer pressure can cause you to have a lot of bad habits that can affect your health.

Don’t take unnecessary drugs that may harm your body. Your body is made to heal itself if it gets fed the right stuff.

Since we know how to take care of ourselves and have the right lifestyle our lives should be much healthier. We should feel better with more energy and ready to face the world and everything it throws at us.

  1. I had to change my diet and exercise habits sometime ago or I was going to become a great risk of heart attacks. I love you post! Ever since I started eating healthier and exercise every day I feel amazing. So, it is true that if one takes the steps forward to be healthier they will feel 100{0580942254a8404b9cbb1b1bb95a6f06e3c05404a4a3e100977df26e356e3e53} better.

    • Thanks for the comment. Just as I said in the post taking simple steps daily will improve our health. One don’t think about when they are young but it will help.

  2. Hello Fred,
    You are perfectly right, when we are young we don’t think about what happens to the body while treating it badly with unhealthy choices. Most people aren’t aware of the negative effects until they get their first body aches. Still, they don’t believe it has something to do with their lifestyle.
    Studies have proven that lack of nutrients, too much sugar, lack of sleep and lack of exercise promotes inflammations in the body.
    I have myself experienced that lack of sleep (less than 7 hours for several days in a row) gives me a lower right back pain. When I go back to my usual 8 hours sleep per night, the back pain disappears. When it happened the last time I decided to sleep enough hours no matter what.
    Thanks for spreading the word of health. May your knowledge reach a huge audience.

    • Thank you Pernilla for the comment, I really like hearing your comments they get right to the point and help people understand their problems. Inflammation, as you know, is the main problems of our sicknesses get rid of it and the healthier we are.

  3. Hi Fred, very insightful, it is very sad when bad choices in our youth affect our adult and senior years. I really should add more vitamins and supplements. I like what you added at the end, to take care of your health to write better blog articles 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for the comment, Tara. I wish people could see now by looking at others how our health can be affected by our choices when we are young. Very true about taking care of our health includes our mind which in turn helps us write better blogs.

  4. Hi Fred,

    Great post. I know when I was younger and played football alcohol was a big thing and we would always wipe ourselves off on the weekend. I was lucky as smoking never influenced me.

    As I got older I realised the importance of eating healthy and meditating for a healthy mind. Yes keep yourself healthy so you can keep writing these great blog posts! haha!


    • Thanks for the comment Kev. You know we all have done things we were not proud of when we were young. but the ones that overcome that and don’t let it take control of them are the ones that make it through. And can give out the information to help others.

  5. Hi Fred
    I made myself a promise at the beginning of the year to be healthier and lose weight. I was really good for about 2 months and then gradually slipped back into old habits. I am working again on getting healthy – eating real food and less processed, and ensuring I walk at least 14,000 steps per day. Do you have some suggestions for keeping going when I lose the motivation?

    • Thank you for the comment, Megan. The one way I stay motivated, I look at myself and say you know it’s going to get worse if I don’t change. And that definitely is not what I want. So this causes me to do a little more even if I have to look at myself more than once a day and say I am going to do more now. I know it may sound like the same thing over and over and it is. That’s what it takes by never being satisfied with the way you are until you get the results that you are looking for. Small steps are just fine but don’t get satisfied till you get what you want.

  6. I love reading the info on your site and it couldn’t have come at a better time in my life. I am young, so people say, and I shouldn’t have health issues but the reality is I do. So eating healthy and exercising is important, though it isn’t always easy. I have made a lot of improvements this year I can be proud of because I am being an example for my children. I love getting educated about different ways to improve every day and appreciate your tips.

    • Thank you, Melissa, for the good comment. I work hard to write these posts so they can be of some benefit. I don’t publish as many as some do but I want to make sure they are worthwhile. I hope I can keep bringing them to you.

  7. Hey Fred, nice post. When I was younger, I used to do the same. I smoked one pack per day and always was open for a drink. To be honest – it was fun and I never felt guilty about it. As time went by, I felt that my body needed more time to recover and couldn’t take it as well as before. My first child arrived right on time and made me change my lifestyle from that moment on. In my opinion, we shouldn’t push too hard with our health mindset. Just listen to your body and you’ll know, what you’ll have to do.

    • Ok, Felix thanks for the comment. Yeah, I believe a lot of us did things we kind of wish we hadn’t. What I know now is just how lucky I am to still be around. Doing such a thing in moderation is a key sometimes it takes something dramatic to make us realize what we are doing to our bodies.

  8. Hi Fred, I like your article. Very inspiring. It always amazes me how we don’t consider what’s good for us until we get older, and then sometimes it’s too late. As I’m helping to raise my grandchildren now, I pray the good things I teach them when young, will instill good habits as they grow up.

    • Thank you, Suzanne, for the comment. Sounds like we are in the same boat I am also raising my grandchildren. And I feel the same about what I teach them now that it will stick with them.

  9. Hello Fred,
    As usual, you have written a compelling post that deserves everyone’s attention.
    I am in better health than I have been in years. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I eat healthier and exercise more.
    However, looking back and knowing a lot more about how your body can act as a warning signal I have to admit that I just didn’t heed the warning. For example, I grew up avoiding a lot of greasy food. So, when I consumed too much junk food my body became more sensitive to that then is usually the case. I felt something wasn’t quite right but ignored it. And then I wondered why I didn’t feel that great.
    Well in time I got smarter. I did and on occasion still eat some junk food but not nearly as much as in the past. The difference is that I am paying attention to the signals that my body is sending me.
    The human body, as you are aware, is an amazing thing. Many of us understand when it sends out signals, some times in the form of pain, to stop us from doing something destructive.
    However, it can also send signals of discomfort to tell us that we are wrecking our health–like not feeling so good after eating a greasy sandwich or feeling sluggish because we keep skipping our exercise. The only question is whether we pay attention to those signals and change our behavior. Nice Post. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks for the comment, Thabo, as well as you know that being healthy is something that has to be worked at. It doesn’t naturally come to by bad habits but by good habits. The post at livegreaterhealth is for all people to learn the ways to start living healthier. As we said before it takes work and consistency to stay healthy and it’s up to us ourselves to do that. We cannot depend on someone else to do it for us.
