Type 2 Diabetes and Healthy Living - Putting It All Together
When it comes to health and well-being, there is almost always a reason. Very little can be attributed to coincidence or bad luck. Even unpredictable diseases like cancer do not necessarily strike at random. There is almost always something we have done that is part of the problem.
If you are not in excellent health you may have overlooked something: you might have made a mistake. If you are afflicted with a preventable disease, then it is almost a certainty it has come about as a result of an unfortunate habit or two you have developed over the years. It is crucial to realize your mistakes, and as hard as it might be, take full responsibility for them.
Regardless of whether you are afflicted with a condition, it is wise to reflect on your lifestyle. Are your choices adequate? Why or why not? More importantly, know what you are dealing with. If you are guilty of impulsive eating, for instance, you should be aware of the consequences. Impulsive eating does not have any benefits and is likely to contribute to particular problems: high blood sugar, weight gain, and Type 2 diabetes come to mind.
As you think about this, think about what may have been your biggest health mistake. It may be recent, or it may have happened many years ago, and it may not be a single event. For many people, it will be a combination of factors. A good example is working your first office job. If this is your case, you are likely familiar with several of the negative habits office work tends to instill. Of course, it is hard to avoid sitting for long periods of time, but it is possible to not snack during the day. And after work, there is no reason why time cannot be made for a workout, at least on three days each week.
Think about your most significant health mistake. What effect has it had on your life? If it has contributed to your current health situation, it is time to think about what you can do to change.

What you must do is ensure you are not neglecting your health. Since you are not getting any younger, the time for you to act is now.
