General Health

  • Get adequate rest daily and don’t deprive yourself of sleep for extended periods of time. 
  • If you’re on medication for an illness, ensure that you follow the course all the way through. 
  • Give at least 1 hour (2-3 hours is good) gap between meal and bed time.
  • Skin, teeth, hair, nails are all indicators of general health. Loss of hair or lack of lustre may mean poor nutrition. 
  • Get regular check-ups done
  • Early detection is the key. Watch out for the signs of major illnesses, especially cancer, heart disease etc.
  • Make sure you rest your eyes well.
  • Take care of your teeth. Dental health has been linked, among other things, to premature heart disease. 
  • Try to get all your nutrition from the food you eat. If you aren’t getting it though, multivitamins and nutritional supplements are a good option. 
  • Get your vitamin D from the sun but also stay UV-protected.
