Listen To Your Body and Protect Your Health
Last night, during dinner, I suddenly had a bad headache, feeling a little dizzy and having the world spin around me.
It’s not the first time I’ve had such an attack, but it’s been a long while since the last one.
Like most people, I absolutely do not like the feeling of being unwell. To put it bluntly, it sucks.
But not feeling too great is a cry for help from our bodies. It could be something simple – I need more rest! Or it could be something more serious which requires far more dedicated attention and long term action. Either way, the body is telling us something is not right. It would be wise to listen before bigger problems crop up.
And being unwell also offers the opportunity for some reflection. Other than questions like “Have I been eating right”, “Have I been exercising enough” and “Do I have enough sleep”, another thought is – have I been working too hard?
No matter how dedicated one is to one’s profession or vocation, no matter how strongly one believes in the cause one is working towards or fighting for, and no matter how much work there is to be done, the fact remains – all that is only possible if you maintain a decent level of physical health. In fact, the healthier and more energetic you are, the more you will be able to work towards your life goals.
Only with health are almost all other things in life – ability to work hard and earn money, further causes one believes in, taking care of loved ones, contributing to society, leading an activity-filled life, etc – possible. Never, ever take your health for granted; though, unfortunately, many of us do.
I liken one’s health to a dam. It’s strong and resilient and it holds millions of gallons of water at bay – the tons of water symbolizes all the unhealthy lifestyle and dietary habits which we practice every single day. Little cracks in the dam can be easily patched up. Bigger cracks can still be mended with some effort. But once the damn breaks, it’s going to take a huge amount of time and resources to repair the dam. So, please take care of your dam of health!
