Is Make Health our Priority? The answer is No if most of our waking time is spent running behind our career. We forget about the most important aspect of our life – health. It is sad that today health is the neglected. We start taking care of our body only when we get some indication of sickness.
Today many people are suffering from many health problems. Our sedentary and stressful lifestyle has aged us before time. Health concerns like blood pressure, diabetes, heart problems are not just for the elderly anymore. We can blame our Lifestyle disorders like stress, pollution, irregular eating and sleeping patterns, excessive usage of chemicals, unhealthy weight, consumption of junk food, addictions like smoking, drinking and worse is destroying our health.
A little change in our lifestyle can make a huge difference to our heart’s health and can increase our lifespan with years. It is not advisable to make sudden big lifestyle changes without consulting your doctor. Self-diagnosis is not only a useless technique but it can also be extremely dangerous.
Many people out of desperation make changes in their lifestyle without understanding the cause of their symptoms. When it comes to health people should make informed decisions and for this one must have regular Preventive Health Checkups.

Growing sedentary lifestyles, increasing stress levels at work place, tempting and enticing food displays, growing disposable incomes, increased addictions to automobiles, all indicate that we give to our body more than what it needs. This has given rise to obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure and a host for many other lifestyle disorders.
