Most of the time, it takes one to be sick to bring back health to life. No one remembers to eat right if someone has already been rushed to emergency room for a one-snap operation. And as they say, one who is extra cautious of his or her health is suffering from some form of illness.
People would cure illness but prevention may be tasking. Why waste time when the need is not that urgent, anyway, when time should be spent for artworks for sale instead of exerting effort to be a health buff? Preparing healthy food can be a bit laborious. Being your self-nutritionist can be fun for a few weeks running but making it last for you to be disease-free can be exhausting not unless it is a doctor’s prescription. Otherwise your terminal disease may want to take your life shorter than expected. And eating the wrong food may just prolong your routinary visit to the hospital. In this case, people can last a lifetime trying to be healthy. It seems for all of us, there should be a need first before we think passionately of our health.
Being a nutritionist for one self is not an easy task after all. First, it requires research. It is not just watching out for food that our body does not need but we think too of food combination like go, grow, and glow. And this should be for everyday task, not to mention there is a proper way of preparing for each dish, otherwise that nutritional element that our body particularly needs might be damaged or reduced. Doing this can even be more laborious than creating Asian art by an artist who can make multiple pieces in just one-sitting. Water is a good common therapy and it is the most available anytime. Without much ado, anyone can just have a habit of putting a glass of water in his or her work desk. Yet not all can even follow a routinary water therapy.
And what about junk food? It takes strong will power to resist the salt and msg of chips. It takes guts to control the thirst for soda after stuffing one’s mouth with crisps. And if you aren’t ill, then why the fuss for self-control when it is maddening! This is not how our mind thinks. This is how our physical body speaks. It takes a sick one to desire for health once again, as we mentioned just like it takes non-Asians to get hooked to Asian arts.
