For most of us getting up out of a chair is no big deal, but for some this can be quite a challenge – It shouldn’t be of course, but in today’s western society, it has become more and more common. If you’re unable to climb a ladder without breathing heavily for hours, there’s definitively something wrong with your health. If you are unable to recognize that your health needs improvement, don’t go anywhere. I’ve collected 6 signs why you should invest more in your health.
1. Climbing Stairs
There is nothing more humiliating than not being able to climb stairs, but for more and more kids and adults this has become the new normal. If you feel dizzy after climbing just 6 stairs, you should be concerned. There is a simple fix for this, go out and exercise! If you can’t motivate yourself, find someone that will. Ask a friend if he would support you (they usually do) or if you do not have any friends, check out some online forums.
Next point on our list 6 Signs Why You Should Invest More In Your Health: If your face starts looking like a WW1 battlefield and it’s not genetically caused, then there is definitively something you can do about it.
- Clean your phone before using it – the bacteria on your phone can worsen your acne.
- Don’t clean your skin too often – it will strip the skin of essential oils, making it an easy target for bad bacteria.
- There are different foods that can cause acne – Studies have linked dairy products to acne, as well as refined sugar.
3. Erectile Dysfunction
Number three on our list is probably the scariest one for most middle-aged man, but did you know that erectile dysfunction is a sign of bad health? Studies have shown that people who eat unhealthy (lots of meat and processed foods) are more likely to be affected by erectile dysfunction. If you are having problems with that, it’s definitely a sign you should invest in your health and change your diet.
4. Food Addiction
If your day starts with sugar, it most probably ends with it as well. Adults and kids should not eat more than 10mg of refined sugar per day. The average adult eats far more than that. Eating too much much sugar is linked to getting diabetes at an early age as well as a low life expectancy. Eating too much sugar is one of the strongest signs out of our list, 6 signs you should invest in your health.
5. Lack Of Exercise
If you are a couch potato, like I used to be, you know there is too much temptation to not do any kind of exercise. Instead, you just hang out with your (online) friends and play video games. Do that until the age of 40 and an early death as well as diabetes is almost guaranteed! If you don’t know how to change your behavior read my blog post about “Is There a Fast Way To Lose Weight?“.
6. Too Much Belly
It’s Peanut Butter Belly Time! Well, not so fast. Having a large amount of belly fat is a huge risk factor. It can cause colorectal cancer, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure. Even if you are thin, you are not safe. Studies have shown that having a belly, while the rest of the body is relatively slim, is almost as dangerous for our health as being overweight.
The End – 6 Signs You Should Invest In Health
Congratulations, you’ve made it to the end. Now if you found yourself on the list, I hope you are scared, because you should be! Your health should always be your number one priority. But don’t be sad, I’ve got some good news for you. There is a way out. It’s never NEVER too late to start exercising or eat healthy. A whole food plant based diet can even reverse diabetes.
