Article On Health

I used to read every article on health that came out, but lately I've given this up as a bad habit. To be honest it was driving me absolutely crazy. You see, I am a health fanatic. I used to be fat, lazy, and out of shape, and it made me absolutely miserable. Since I finally got my body back into shape, I have been doing everything that I can to keep myself as healthy as possible. Reading articles on health helps me to keep up with the latest news in exercise, diet, supplements, and other aspects of longevity. But nowadays, when I read an article on health, it just fills me up with anxiety. After all, one article on health will say one thing, another day, another article says something else. One day, soon type of food, such as soy, is good for you, and the next day an article on health says that increases food allergens and promotes the development of female hormones in males. I swear, all I want is to find the perfect diet, the perfect exercise routine, and the perfect lifestyle to keep myself as healthy as I can for as long as I possibly can. Every article on health that I read, however, has a different idea of what that would mean. Until recently, alcohol was thought of as bad for you, as were chocolate, and coffee. Now it turns out that wine is good for you, beer is good for you provided it is dark beer, chocolate is good for you if it is dark chocolate, and even coffee has been found to have some health benefits when used in moderation. Tomorrow, they will be saying that ice cream and cheesecake are the best options for creating a low cholesterol diet! What I have finally figured out at such great pains is that, ultimately, my own life is my own responsibility. I can read all the article on health by experts that I want, but none of them will really tell me how to live. At the very best, article on health can give me some health tips that will help me figure out how to exercise, and how to eat right, but the rest is just me listening to my body. It all comes down to this: I need to do what feels right for me. If I can do this, I can live a healthier, happier, and longer life.
