Lead A Healthy Lifestyle

Many of today's killer diseases are related to the habits of daily living such as smoking and overeating. Leading a health lifestyle involves practising good health habits and giving up harmful ones. Before you can enjoy the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle, recognise the shortcomings in your present lifestyle.

Are you eating right? Do you get enough exercise? Are you under too much stress? Do you smoke? Realising the need to make a change in your lifestyle is the first step to attaining physical, mental and social well-being.

The Golden Rules Of Healthy Living

Eat Wisely

Eat more fish, chicken, fresh fruit and vegetables. Cut down on red meat, fats, sugar and salt.

Exercise Regularly

Exercise at least 3 times a week and for at least 20 minutes each time.

Control Stress

Learn to relax and cope with the pressures of everyday life.

Don't Smoke

Say no to cigarette.

Of course, there are other aspects of your lifestyle such as drinking habits and sexual practices which may have to be modified in order to attain good health. Changing the way you live today can really make that vital difference. So, love life and live wise.

Bring These Up With Your Doctor

  • Family history of any medical condition(s)
  • Medical and hospitalisation history.
  • Lifestyle habits such as diet, alcohol consumption, smoking and exercise routine.
  • Some background of family and working life and associated stresses.

Ideally, you should see your family doctor armed with results of a general health screening test so that she can help you more accurately assess your medical status and if necessary, direct you to a more specific health screening test.
