Why bother trying to be healthy? We all have to die of something, right?

.

In part this is true. Regardless of our discomfort with death, we all have
to die sometime, and we all have to die from something. However, this is
where the truth ends.

.

Today in Australia, the leading causes of death are mostly preventable  or
at least can be significantly delayed. Factors like poor diet and tobacco
drive ailments including heart disease, stroke, diabetes (type 2), lung
disease and cancers. And when you look more deeply at what ill-health
brings, its not just death that makes the strongest case for getting out
of bed.

Youll die later

Youll be healthier, longer

Youll feel better in the meantime

Youll save more and spend less

Your kids will be healthier, and maybe even their kids

The bigger picture

.

Living a healthier lifestyle is about making small, possible, simple and
sustainable changes like taking the stairs instead of the lift  not
totally rethinking the way you live.

.

But while there are many compelling reasons to be healthy, personal
discipline alone will never solve our chronic disease and obesity
epidemics. If neighbourhoods lack safe spaces for kids to run, or fresh
food is inaccessible and unaffordable, good intentions will not get you
very far. Government policies need to make health easier, even preferred.

.

In the meantime, look to friends for motivation; your family to share and
support a healthy diet; apps that map and commend the exercise you do; and
your GP and important services like Quitline for assistance with alcohol
reduction and smoking cessation.
