Taking Some Control Over Your Own Health 100%

Your health is something you can often feel out of control with. You’ve got a brain and a body to look after, to feed properly and put to bed at night, and they’ll still turn on you when you least need them to! At least, that’s how it feels when you suddenly come down with a cold, or you get a diagnosis for a chronic illness you weren’t expecting when you went to the doctor’s that morning.

And that’s why you can feel so out of control, and so vulnerable, in the face of your own wellbeing. You want to be someone in charge, and you want to be confident as you do it – but how can you even think to manage that when we’re hardly ever sure of what causes us to get ill? It’s a delicate balance, and it’s one you should learn about. So with all that in mind, here’s a couple of ways you might be able to put some control back in your own hands.

Ask for Help When You Need Some

Of course, it may seem counterproductive to ask someone else to help you out when you’re feeling out of sorts, but it’s one of the most important self care tasks to keep in mind. Whether you’re feeling bad because of a physical ailment or a mental illness, you need to remember you’re allowed to reach out, and that you’re going to feel much better for doing so.

Taking control means giving yourself a break, not working yourself to the bone, and knowing your own limits in terms of your health. Being able to stand firm in the face of the idea that unless you’re contributing, you’re not worth the time and effort, is something few people are able to do. So let’s make sure you stay in bed when you’re struggling to stand up, and that you’re taking the time to have a snack if you haven’t stopped at the daily grind all morning!

Use a DNA Kit

Nowadays, technology can do a lot for our health, and monitoring is made a lot more effective and a lot less invasive because of it. After all, the more advances that come out each year, the better we get at solving our ailments and giving ourselves a chance at longer, healthier lives. Operations are far more complex, and far more successful, thanks to the use of technology, and even your own heart can be regulated via the use of tiny electrical devices.

Which is why a DNA test might be best for giving you an insight into your own body and how it works. After all, your genetic code has a lot to answer for, and companies like iDNA Health are the experts in Clinical Genetics – why not visit a website like this to see if a kit would be available to you?

Remember, taking some kind of control over your own health doesn’t have to be as hard as it’s made out to be.

    You are so right that sometimes our health can be challenging and sometimes we can feel so out of control in trying to look after ourselves. For me, I feel out of control because I genuinely can’t afford to eat as healthy as I would like to be. It’s so frustrating when there are things we can’t do for ourselves that we know we should be doing, but it’s all temporary. Nothing remains the same, and in time we can develop ways to help ourselves, including by asking others to help us as you mentioned. Thank you for sharing this post.

      Isn’t it amazing how healthy foods can be so expensive and junk food so cheap? Things really need to change don’t they?

    Thanks so much for sharing this eye opening post. Firstly, I cannot agree with you less on the disseminated information in this write up. Being able to seek for help from others is a challenge to most people because they think they are self sufficient which no one is. Feeling down and out of control is very normal and it has happened to me on countless occasions whereby I sought the help of a psychologist to get through it. And I’m not sure I wouldn’t ask again if its needed. Its a sure way I engage in to maintain the stability of my health.

    thanks
