On the wall, the clock does not lie: it’s Wednesday, 6pm.

The sun hasn’t gone yet. The day has plenty to offer.

But at home, you just want to stretch your legs on the couch, pop open that cold soft drink along with a package of corn chips.

After all, another day has been won.

The rush now is to get some rest. Is it really?

Perhaps your home is not so comfortable.

Your body is your home. And habits can turn many keys to your health.

In this respect, there is no secret: the less time you spend moving your body and the less you take care of your diet, the greater are the chances of a big mess.

That’s why it’s worth asking yourself:

Have you been living well within yourself?

Data from the NHS, or the National Health Survey, show that 40.3% of Brazilians have a sedentary behavior. In other words, 6 out of 10 people people you know practice less than the 150 minutes of physical activity recommended per week. And when this sedentary lifestyle is combined with a poor diet, the risk is very high for your body structure.

Your stationary body can be the door to many problems.

Lack of physical activity is one of the factors responsible for these diseases and conditions that can worsen your health over the years:

  • Obesity
  • Cardiovascular diseases
  • Increased risk of Type 2 diabetes
  • Accumulation of arterial fat
  • Sleep apnea
  • Back problems
  • Anxiety and depression
  • Among others (many others)

And when there is lack of maintenance, hypertension is the one who rushes in for a visit.

No less than about 24% of Brazilian adults are considered to have hypertension. That is, 4 out of 10.

As a consequence, 3 out of 4 deaths of hypertensive patients are related to a sedentary lifestyle.

Ok. The idea is not to scare you and recommend locking yourself inside your bedroom.
On the contrary. It is precisely questioning what comfort is. And in many cases, a new, simple and cheap interior design of the “Do-It-Yourself” type can do well.

Think of new habits for your habitat.

There is no need to break anything, rebuild, or make plans to move into a mansion.

It doesn’t matter what your home looks like.
It doesn’t matter how much space it takes up.
It doesn’t matter how the other homes are.

The most important thing is for you to be happy and healthy from within.

Throughout your life you will redecorate some environments, live and relive new experiences and, in the midst of all this, keep happy memories. That’s why it’s worth taking such good care of yourself.

Your best look is always waiting for you.
