The fact that over one-third of U.S. adults are obese explains why we need to invest more in our health. Yet so many of us choose to ignore this as we continue eating fast food, drinking sugary sodas, smoking cigarettes, not sleeping enough and drinking excessively. However, Kleinman believes that this goes beyond obesity. Just because you’re not obese does not necessarily mean that you are taking proper care of your body.
There are several key areas that we should all be investing in our health. Living a healthy life begins and ends with quality sleep. But as Kleinman's Americare Companies explain, quality sleep goes beyond getting 8 hours of sleep, which is a great start. For a good night sleep you must ensure that you are getting enough REM sleep so that your body heals itself.
Whether it is during the work day or at night while watching TV, we spend most of our time sitting down. This is the reason for most of our low back pain, headaches and other aches, yet we don’t take any measures to fix it. Excessive drinking is the cause for death among 10% of all working-age adults aged 20-64 in the U.S. Furthermore, around 18% of all U.S. adults smoke cigarettes and 20% of all deaths are result of cigarette smoking. There is nothing wrong with having a couple glasses of wine with dinner or a few beers while watching the game, but that should be it. And if you’re a smoker, take the steps to quit smoking for good. Breaking an addiction is not an easy road, but it is achievable.
