“The 30s are here: prepare yourself for that promising future you’ve dream about!”

So you could say you enjoyed the early youth years; no limits, not thinking about tomorrow…

Everybody deserves to live that! No discussion!

But, there’s a point my friends, when we should start taking the first steps to guarantee our future health with a quality of life and to achieve the goal of being useful in the society we live. That point should certainly be: reaching the 30 and plus years old.

Naturally you can feel it: changes in the way of enjoying things, more responsibilities occupying your mind, less energy than before, less power of recovering than before, more need of a good rest, new and unexpected health problems and complaints, more difficulty to lose the gained weight …

Modern world gives us the power to live more, if we know how to use the information available, to take a good care about ourselves. But I tell you it is time to act now, so you avoid big complications later, because is not worthy a life without quality. It came the moment to foment your professional life without forgetting your health (physically and mentally speaking).

Make time for going to meet your doctor: Go for an annual check up and screening of diseases that the health care specialist might recommend. Early diagnosis and control is a way to avoid complications, disabilities and unexpected mortality…

A sedentary lifestyle might literally kill you; start thinking about exercising: it is a way of reaching a good weight, building muscles, improving our posture to avoid back problems that are very common and to keep your body active by going to a gym, practicing any sport, walking, jogging, riding bicycle, swimming; dedicating a couple of hours daily or twice or more/ week to learn any very active dance style could be a fun helpful option…

Taking all measures for keeping a desirable weight, not lower nor higher, can’t be out of your agenda. With this we guarantee a more productive life and it also reduces our risk for chronic medical conditions like diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and osteoporosis, kidney and liver conditions and even certain types of cancer…

Reduce the toxic habits as much as you can and quite on them if possible. Smoking is a silent killer. The alcohol intake should not be daily, or not exceed the recommended one…

Wear a sunscreen: you can’t keep treating your skin like if you are still a careless teenager. Skin cancer is real, also the aging effects due to the sun exposition!…

Eat a healthy diet: including plenty of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean protein and low or no fat dairy products. Essential vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, such as iron, folic acid, calcium, potassium, B vitamins, vitamin D, fiber and healthy omega-3 fats, can help ensure good health for future days. We should limit our intake of processed foods and fast foods, take steps to reduce the amount of sodium (salt) in our diet.

If you are a woman, taking Folic Acid supplements is a must: you are in your fertile years, and this is proved to be good for you and your future descendants…

Always follow a health care provider’s recommendations for taking vitamin and/or mineral supplements. More than that, avoid self- medication under every circumstance; that’s a suicide practice!…

Take care of your sexual and reproductive health. By the time we reach our 30s, many of us are married or in a committed relationship, and if we haven’t started a family yet, we have certainly thought about it. Talk to your physician about safer sex and STD/HIV prevention, contraception, reproductive risks,  infertility, pregnancy and prenatal care…

Beware about depression: If you’ve been feeling down, not sleeping well for more than a few weeks, If your appetite has been affected, you’re not enjoying the activities you once did, you are feeling withdrawn or you are having thoughts about suicide, these are signs of depression, and they should not be ignored…

Train your mind and keep your mental health: Rest enough, sleep enough, drink enough water to keep your body functioning properly. Use mental training games and puzzles, make good use of the modern technologies to learn new things, find new hobbies, increase the knowledge in your career field and keep yourself up to date; read more, cultivate your general culture…

Take care about your image: you don’t need to become a super model, just be clean, dress appropriate to your age and to the occasion without excesses; improve your manners and formal civic education…

Your life matters; even Asian people say we can reach 120 years old (not a joke, they mean it!).

Think that without being in an adequate health status you can not carry out any of those life goals of yours. You did reach the 30 years old, it’s done, no more leaving important things for tomorrow. For certain you must still be yourself, but you can also become a better version of you!
