Health is wealth has become a bookish concept, due to a drastic change in lifestyle. But we have to take our lives seriously now. This life of packed foods and technology friendly makes us lazy. Physical activity has taken a back seat in our lives. No one is happy whether a toddler, students, adult, youngsters, parents or old age people. Everyone is seriously in deep trouble.
But why is this happening?
Are we becoming less tolerable, are we losing patience easily?
Yes, we are becoming less tolerable this fast track life is making us patience-less and testing our mental stigma. We often see children of age 2-3 years are busy with tablets and phones. They do not even eat anything unless they are handed over with any these gadgets. We always complain that
parks in our societies are getting washed away. It’s a normal scene in the parks that many adults gather there and they play only on mobiles. We have become so much social that before eating we click the pic of what we are eating, just to show to the world that what we are eating. We invite the
world to sneak peek in our private life.
The importance of health has always taught us in elementary education. In earlier days when physical activities were the most liked and trending activities of every child. Going to the park and playing cricket or any other outdoor games, meeting people and spending time with them, walking down to nearby places for some household chores, etc. were the golden days of our childhood. Today’s generation is only growing up. We used to have an ample amount of time irrespective of our studies and tuition and classes reason being our hands were free. Now our hands have been handcuffed by the MOBILES. The mobile got smart, but our brain has become stupid.
Earlier we used to remember the birthday’s and mobile numbers of our friends and relatives but now we save it on our mobiles. Nowadays we hardly remember the numbers. The lifespan of a person has been reduced a lot. Earlier people used to have a long-life span reason being they have done a lot of physical activities in their lifetime which is paying them now. Technology has evolved, and it has taken the driver seat of our lives and made us its slave.
According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 3.2 million deaths can be attributed to lack of physical activity. Our sedentary lifestyles are responsible for increasing our risk of diabetes and heart disease as well as a loss of muscle and bone strength. Perhaps, even more.
It’s very horrifying to imagine one day without technology…!! We cannot survive even a single day. Research shows that on an average people log in to Facebook almost 30 times in a day. In this easily accessible world, we are getting away from our lives and emotions. Now our emotions are evolved and revolved in and out of technology. I am not against technology but there should be some limitations to use it.
The dietary factors also add up fuel in our life. And it is one of the most vital elements for a healthy lifestyle. Now we hardly get the unadulterated vegetables and fruits. There are always high chances of getting adulterated food. Most of the disease now a day has been originated from food. We prefer packed foods, street foods and many types of foods. Earlier were days when we use to get fresh foods.
Easily accessible- We are very happy when we get something easily in this world of everything at your doorstep. We are vulnerably accessible to many things which are even harmful to our health. We have become so ignorant to the facts that we witness in our day to day life like a teenagers smoking or consuming drugs. We need to take some actions to
