#4 – “I Wish I Had Taken Better Care of Myself”
There’s no doubt about it, without good health you have nothing – it underpins everything in your life. While some illnesses and conditions are genetic or largely out of our control, many of the chronic diseases that wreck so many lives such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis and diabetes, are all lifestyle related. They are often the result of an unhealthy diet, unmanaged stress and lack of exercise. Worse still, these diseases being chronic in nature, often don’t manifest until many years of bad living habits have tipped the balance and symptoms surface.
It is so sad to see elderly patients who have only recently retired, have their golden years taken away from them by terminal illnesses. Get informed about health and take action now to ensure that you can enjoy your retirement in good health.
