Taking care of health is a part-time job, if not full. Thoughts?

Jan 31 9 Comments

This relates to my previous post about my stomach hurting no matter what I eat.

I was researching online and realized taking care of my health is at least a part-time job. There are so many things I take care of (eating veggies and fruits, working out, avoiding deep fried, brushing twice a day, avoiding carbonated drinks... the list goes on). Yet there are always certain things I miss/will miss. Example - even after spending time on my body everyday, I may not have taken good care of my eyes/hair, or may not have maintained a good posture while working, or the crunches/squats I do may be slowly hurting my back/knees, or I may not be drinking enough water.

There are literally so many things to take care of, how do you guys manage? Is there a list of things I can do to stay healthy and age peacefully?

    Most of these things are done through pure habit assimilation. You use time to make it a habit, after that you no longer have to consider it a job. Most of these things are done sort of in the background of your life, like posture and diet.

    Keep forming habits. Posture or anything else, if you repeat enough times becomes a habit you don't have to think about

    Usually a healthy person doesn't have to use that much time to make sure they keep on living without their bodies failing on them.

      I don't think I fall in that category naturally, so I gotta spend time on myself and am sure there are many others like me. Also, even a person who is healthy during younger years starts to feel his body slow down once in late 20s, second at 40, and third at 70.

  • You don’t have to do everything everyday. Beyond the essentials like face/eye cream and dental hygiene, just do one thing special a day and rotate throughout the week.

    You have to invest in yourself and still sometimes the body might still take time
