Only last week, Mr. P woke up with acute stomach pain. The pain was so bad that the doctor recommended all the blood and urine tests. They also wanted to make sure it was not a case of stones which is apparently pretty common in summers. The final verdict was a gastritis attack because of eating out.
The lifestyle today has become like that. The office timings, hectic schedules, none of them are helping. The net result is one has to eat out at least one meal a day. The sweltering temperatures are also not helping the body to perform at its best. All of this results in health issues which can get serious if ignored for long.
Making changes in such lifestyle is certainly not easy. The lack of time and motivation and even lack of a measurable metric is a big deterrent. Healthy Living seems a dream unreachable but instead of waiting for an awakening call, it is best to take responsibility for your own health and start today. Small steps go far.

They help identify your risk areas, customise your habits to improve your lifestyle and monitor the progress in phases. A measurable metric which shows your progress motivates you to follow the lifestyle designed for you.
Secrets to Healthy Living
Wake Up Early
If I wake up at 11 in the morning, I know that my entire day is a waste. Whereas, whenever I manage to wake up at 7, I finish so many tasks without getting tired. Even if I do get tired, there is always an option of an afternoon nap or an after breakfast nap!
