Taking care of the HUMAN FIRST!
Sure AI and Tech is making our lives easier and even in some instances replacing humans in certain jobs/fields, BUT if the human isn't taken care of FIRST then the rest of things don't even matter. Who is going to manage/create/program the tech & AI if the human isn't there?
1. Get enough sleep
Sleep is crucial for our overall health and well-being, yet many of us don’t get enough of it. Adults should aim for 7-8 hours of sleep per night, but many people get far less than that. If you’re not getting enough sleep, try to establish a regular sleep schedule and create a peaceful environment in your bedroom.
2. Eat healthy foods
What we eat has a big impact on our health. Eating a healthy diet can help reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Focus on eating plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. And limit your intake of processed foods, sugary drinks, and red meat.
3. Be physically active & exercise regularly
Regular physical activity is important for maintaining a healthy weight, reducing your risk of chronic diseases, and improving your overall mental health. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days of the week. This can include brisk walking, biking, swimming, or any other activity that gets your heart rate up.
Exercise is not only good for your physical health, but also for your mental health. A moderate amount of exercise is the key to maintaining your health and well-being.
4. Limit alcohol consumption & tobacco
Drinking alcohol in moderation can have some benefits for your health, but drinking too much can have serious consequences. If you choose to drink alcohol, do so in moderation—no more than one drink per day for women or two drinks per day for men.
Tobacco use is one of the leading causes of preventable death in the United States. If you smoke tobacco products, quitting is the best thing you can do for your health. There are many resources available to help you quit smoking, so talk to your doctor if you’re ready to kick the habit.
5. Manage stress
Chronic stress can take a toll on our physical and mental health. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by stress, there are things you can do to manage it effectively. Try exercises like yoga or meditation, spend time with friends or family members, or take up a hobby that you enjoy.
6. Take breaks when you need them
If you feel like you're getting overwhelmed or stressed out, take a few minutes to yourself to relax and rejuvenate. Taking breaks will help you stay focused and productive when you return to your tasks.
7. Be mindful of your thoughts and emotions
Paying attention to your thoughts and emotions can help you identify when you're feeling stressed or down so that you can take steps to address it. Additionally, being aware of your emotions can help you better manage them in healthy ways.
8. Seek professional help if needed & see your doctor regularly
If you find that your stress levels are consistently high or impacting your ability to function in daily life, it may be time to seek professional help from a therapist or counselor.
It is also important to see your doctor for regular checkups, even if you feel healthy. Your doctor can help to catch any health problems early, before they become serious. Be sure to see your doctor at least once a year for a physical exam and more often if you have any health concerns.
9. Wear sunscreen
Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays is important for preventing skin cancer. Wear sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 every day, even on cloudy days. Be sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours or after swimming or sweating heavily.
