A lot of people think that they can stay fit and healthy by taking the right medicine at the right time. This, indeed is a myth. Staying fit and taking proper medication are entirely different things altogether. In fact, it would be wise to state that if you stay fit (and there’s certain ways of staying fit), you might not even need medicines.
In our day to day life if we are not physically fit, we are lagging behind. Thus it’s very important to understand the value of physical fitness and work towards making it even better. Recently Dubai Health Authority announced smart projects. There are various projects under this and few of these projects are ‘Happiness Prescription’, ‘Healthy Living’ etc. ‘Happiness Prescription’ aims to treat patients not only by prescribing medicines but also by suggesting a nutritional and physical program to each patient. However ‘Healthy Living’ aims to encourage people to burn calories while sitting in public places by having mobile pedals.
Fitness is not getting skinnier, it’s also not about only getting muscles. Fitness is about feeling fit from inside, irrespective of how you look outside. We should focus more on fitness and less on the outlook we have.
We have seven quick tips to stay fit and these are considering the fact that in our daily busy lives, we might not have enough time to devote some to fitness. If you stay fit which will lead to developing a better immunity system, you might not even need to have medicines at all.
