We all have good genetics and bad genetics. The thing is, we only find out what that means as we get older. And all of us will have adverse health issues at some point in time. So what can you do about it?
Take care of yourself along the way. Generally eat healthy and exercise. By generally, I mean that once in a while you should have that piece of cake or whatever it is you like that may not be the best for you. But if you eat healthy most of the time, that once in a while indulgence won’t set back your efforts to be healthy.
If you are not sure how to eat healthy, I encourage you to read on how to do so or see a nutritionist. This is important because many people think they are eating healthy, but really aren’t. Two important things to keep in mind: (1) there are ways to eat healthy even if you don’t like a lot of fruits or vegetables, and (2) as far as your weight, it mostly relates to eating and a little bit to exercise (though there are many reason to exercise).
Despite what I just said, you should incorporate exercise into your life. Hopefully there is an activity you like. If you don’t have something you like to do, you need to try activities to find one or more things you like to do. You also need to find times in your week to do them. Most people seem to find that it is easier to make it a routine, whether going to a gym, running, mountain biking, etc.
If you start eating better and exercising you will feel better. This is true even if you feel good now. The benefit is that when those health bumps hit, and you are in good shape, it likely will make whatever you are dealing with easier to recover from. If you do these things for yourself, it will help you in the long run.
