What Is Health?

Health is a very important part of life. If you have bad health, it can lead to diseases, sickness or even death. When you are in good health, you are more likely to live a better longer life. There are few things I consider about health: my diet, weight and regular doctor visits.

If you have a bad diet, there are many complications that can follow later in life. Heart conditions are caused by many sources. If you eat lots of fatty foods or sweets, you may become obese or even have a stroke because of all the fat around your arteries. Also, you may weaken your body's self defense system, which helps you fight off sickness. One way to prevent this is by eathing healthier foods and/or make an eating chart.

Another factor is weight. It is appropriate for you to be at a weight for your age and height. If your weight is not enough you may develop anorexia. That's a disorder where your body does not have enough nutrients and may eventually shut down. Another factor is being too heavy, where you may have shortness of breath, get asthma or heart disease. You much maintain a healthy lifestyle without damaging your body or just do certain activities without stressing yourself.

The last thing is maintaining regular doctor visits. By doing so you will find out more about your body that you may not know. Your doctor can give you advice on helping you stay healthy. They can also do tests to find out if you have any disease or special conditions that need to be treated. By doing this you will stay on top of your health.

If you do these three things you will insure your overall health to be better. Your diets controls what you are able to do. Your weight will be how easily you can do things. Seeing your doctor will insure your wellness. Once you have all of this down-packed you will be much happier.
