With the rat race that 21st century has made us a part of, we humans have absolutely skipped the part to take care of our health and fitness. Mortality rates decreasing, obesity increasing and the youth only wanting to eat all sorts of junk, how do we even expect this generation to remain healthy and fit?
Apart from this, even those who are actually a bit concerned about their health and fitness are too busy, and it’s not their fault, in competing with this harsh world. But how long will this last? It’s time that we start valuing out lives and doing the needful.
A lot of times, health related issues are not taken seriously until and unless they reach a life-altering stage. We lose tracks of our medical history, what diseases we might inherit as a heredity, our daily diet and exercises. There are so many other factors that need to be considered and taken care of. And ultimately, who are we doing it for? Ourselves, right? There is nothing to look forward to if your life is at stake!
Here, I bring to you seven careless mistakes you make and the solutions to avoid them.
Not taking the early symptoms seriously!
While living in the 21st century, we have all become so busy and careless about things that matter, that taking important things like health seriously have taken a back seat in our lives. Who really has the time to notice those early symptoms and consider them for a checkup?
With every wrong that we ever feel with our body, we must make sure that we visit our doctor and get it checked without a fail.
Delay in contacting doctors
Haven’t we all thought this, “Cold and cough, eh! It’ll go away if I just make it through another day!”. With this attitude, we all often fall into self-induced traps, just because we’re too busy to go to a doctor!

Wait until we tell you what we are up to!
Losing track of family healthy records and losing their medical history
With everything now in the run of modernizing why not, medical records and documents as well? A person at max can take care of his own medical records and documents but how does one take care of the medical history and documents of his entire family?
Wasting time in finding older prescriptions
Majority of the times, we switch from one doctor to another depending on our medical needs. A new doctor would always ask for your older prescriptions, to understand your medical history and other health-related aspects before proceeding with a new treatment. But how do you keep a track of all your older prescriptions?
Solution – Store it all confidentially

Not completing your course of complete medication
It’s a very common issue that once we start feeling better and recovering from a health issue or disease, our seriousness towards taking the prescribed medicines on time reduces. Not just that, a lot of times, we even stop taking the medicines, altogether. This can pose serious health threats to us. What do we do?
Solution – Get reminders
The experts will follow up with you depending on your progress reports and make sure, you don’t miss out or skip on the necessary doses.
