Staying healthy requires a lot of thinking and self reflection to be successful.
With a longer life
expectancy of human beings as compared to pre-modern
age, people have been ore vigilant to think about and
create ways to even extend the lives of everyone
existing. Numerous mnemonics and acronyms have been
developed as well by nutritionists and scientists to
help people have a guide on how to stay healthy.
One of these would be the ABC’s of staying healthy, a very
simple, yet effective way of adding to the long list
of patterns to keep healthy.
A Is For Abstinence
“A” stands for abstinence. Most probably many would
already be thinking that this seems like the same ABC
tip for responsible sex. Though the keywords used in
the ABC’s of staying healthy are similar except for
the last one, the ideas are completely in a different
context as this would specifically target more of a
person’s lifestyle in everyday living.
Abstinence should be practiced by the person in
declining the things that would not make him healthy
in the process. Unless it is required such as a career
that would limit the choice to either quit the job or
to counter the effects with good health practices,
abstinence on a great level is required of the person
should he wish to start staying healthy and maintain
being healthy. Abstinence should be the basis of any
individual to serve as a disciplinary concept. Without
the discipline to know when to say no, it would prove
difficult to stay away from the things that people
have learned to love.
B Is For Be Faithful
“B” stands for “Be Faithful”. Being faithful is being
able to hold out and maintain focus on your objective
of staying healthy. It does not mean that you totally
become a no-nonsense robot who only distinguishes a
black from white, but being lenient is a risky thing
to inculcate. Though it is not really to bend the
rules from time to time because of valid reasons, it
may develop into a nasty habit of having an excuse for
every single choice that should have been for staying
C Is For Calisthenics
Calisthenics or exercise is and has always been part
of any healthy program designed for health conscious
and health seekers alike. Calisthenics does not
necessarily mean the rigorous training that one sees
in advertisements and magazines. Those are for
bodybuilders who would want to reshape their bodies
into hard sculptured specimens of humanity.
Calisthenics are simple activities which would allow
one’s self to move about and permit the proper flow of
blood to the different parts of the body for optimal
oxygenation of the cells.
Calisthenics should be done everyday for at least
thirty to forty-five minutes which includes mainly
aerobic exercise. Not only does daily calisthenics
improve the cardiovascular flow of the body, it also
adds up to the amount of calories to be burned for the
day to maintain the desired body weight and fitness
The ABC’s of staying healthy is a very elementary
concept for anyone to grasp should they wish to seek a
better health state or maintain an already good one.
It is a personal choice as it is a personal endeavor.
The extent of its success lies on the amount of effort
that the individual puts in each letter of this simple
