As I get older, it becomes more and more important to me to be health conscious. It seems like it’s more common to talk about various awareness campaigns for conditions – I see posts on Facebook all the time for things like cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes. I don’t know if I see it a lot because my friends are getting older too, or if there really is just a rise in health awareness overall.
We have a friend who started developing diabetes symptoms a while back – he has since taken control of his health, gotten in shape, and now he doesn’t have the symptoms any more! It was an inspiration to me that we can all take action to be healthier people.
Even for people living with diabetes or some other condition, there are so many things you can do to make yourself as healthy as possible and lessen the strength of symptoms. How “health aware” are you?
