Topic Of The Day: How Important Is Health?πŸ”¬πŸŒ‘

A quote by Lee Swanson

I was on Instagram last night and came across this quote. It struck out at me for some strange reason. I’m guessing I could relate to it in some ways.

We have the NHS in the UK and many aspects of it provides free healthcare for the citizens. It’s one of the things in this country that should be treasured to an extent. Many other continents don’t have the same privileges like we do. For example, in America, they have to pay for medical costs. So everything comes at a expense, which must not be taken lightly. It’s highly likely in that circumstance you don’t want to mess around with your health. You wouldn’t want to do that in general. We have access to GPs, A&E, hospitals at our deposal. It would be hard to imagine if one day that wasn’t possible. It would be a shock to us, because we’ve become to accustom to having it around us our whole lives.

Another beneficial service in England is sexual health clinics. I mean without them, we wouldn’t know much about contraception, check ups and sex. It gives individuals a sound of mind to know they can get free check ups, to look for STI/STDs. Young adults, who are sexually active, should be getting regular check ups and able to understand what precautions need to be taken to avoid unwanted pregnancies and transmitted infections. This isn’t just targeted at young adults, it is for everyone, because we need to know what is going on in our bodies and how to protect it as much as we can. This doesn’t require you to become a hypochondriac, but you are in your body. This allows you to know if something feels off.

This raises the question: How Important Is Health? – Feel free to leave your comments/views below in the section below.

Health is “the condition of the body and the degree to which it is free from illness, or the state of being well” (Health Definition – Cambridge DictionaryΒ ) . When we deviate from this condition, it causes problems for us. It makes it difficult to function properly, because you are not operating to the best of your ability. I believe that is why exercise and other care practices are put in place to help us maintain homeostasis. We need a balanced lifestyle. This doesn’t mean following rigid structures or limiting yourselves. It is just mean being able to do things in moderation, which allows you to feel good and pro-active. You essentially decide how important health is to you.
