Health – it’s easy to dismiss it as something to work on when you get the time. That is, until your health fails you. Many of us don’t see ourselves at risk, but you can do an enormous amount of benefit by paying attention to staying healthy. Cardiovascular disease, which includes heart disease and strokes, is the second biggest killer in South Africa, after HIV/AIDS. While it is a growing problem, about 80% of cardiovascular disease can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle.
How do you do this? Keep moving, eat a healthy, balanced diet, de-stress your life, and cut out excessive alcohol use, smoking and drugs.
Stick to these golden rules, and you’ll go a long way to living a healthy life!
