- 1. Be aware of your body
Picking up the traits: If something happen to your body, obviously you will be the first to know. Whatever medical issues and problem arose should be taken into consideration instead of just pass them away like nothing happen. Short pain, headache, stomachache… these are the sighs worth noticing.

A general idea about yourself: “Am I overweight?”, “I’m getting thinner?”… This is how you can look in to the big picture: What is happening to you? What do you need to improve yourself? Should you stop doing something? A great deal of experiences and information can be found simply by asking yourself some questions like these.

A healthy lifestyle: A good diet and a sufficient level of exercise are all you need to be strong. You may want to cut down some snack and fast foods or harmful habits such as smoking and drinking. Temptations and convenience are not easy to resist but always keep in mind that they are not worth your heath.
Sleeping and resting: Whenever you have chance to refresh yourself, such as a good nap, then grasp it fast. Your body can only function well if you allow it to rest sufficiently and regularly.

Be wise: If your conditions cannot be solved by yourself. The next step is to look for medical assistances.

Otherwise, try to look for an alternative suitable treatment.
Search for information: Dig around every source of information and advice you can use. This is your very life we are talking about so why leaving everything to other people’s responsibilities?
