Health & Executive - Article on Health and Executive
Health is a God-given Gift, and it is our duty to preserve it
by following simple Rules of Health. The old saying - 'Health is
Wealth' gives the valuable truth. One should give a thought to
the structure of his physical make up, and evolve, a healthy life
style suiting to his taste and circumstances.
Nature has given us a wonderful machine, which is complete
in itself, and it has inherent power in it to keep fit. To keep this
machine in perfect order, we should take care of it and lead a
thoughtful life. The human body is a perfect machine, but a
very complicated one. A man is not only a physical self but is
also intricately connected with the mind and soul. In order to
keep healthy and free from ailments, equilibrium of body,
mind and the soul is essential. Physical health is closely
connected with the mental faculties. To keep up good health,
willpower is an important factor.
The life of the Executives is not only sedative but they have to
remain busy in intellectual activities and have to attend
multifarious duties, attend various meetings at odd hours, and
frequently face situations full of stress and strain. It is difficult
to lay down, in their case any hard and fast rules of health. It is
for them to understand the healthy life style, and chalk out the
healthy path according to the situation and circumstances in
which they have to work. Many executives feel that since they work hard, they should be able to play hard too. This is fine within limits, but in the worst case scenario it can lead to the uses of drugs and alcohol. This is not as uncommon as one may think, and the result is that more and more social workers are being recruited by companies in an effort to manage any serious issues.
All the Executives should themselves give a thought to their
physical self-habits, the strain and stress of official life, and
evolve a healthy life style for themselves, keeping in view the
basic rules of health. In doing so, they will have to give a thought
to the nature of duties assigned to them and make necessary
adjustments to keep fit and alert.
Healthy lifestyle consists of:
- Developing healthy heart and blood circulating system by
regular exercise and healthy nourishing food.
- Creating high degree of energy levels by healthy habits.
- Handling stress cheerfully and tactfully by adequate rest
and invigorating ideas.
- Eating well and eating healthy foods and keeping slim
- Having high resistance to disease, thereby helping the
body's immune system.
In fact, good health is a process of achieving one's high efficiency,
full potential and happiness.
The Executives in particular need to plan a healthy life style in
view of the complicated and multifarious duties they have to
perform. One who fails to plan also fails to attain a healthy
way of living. Basic knowledge of health is, therefore, a must
for them. Keeping good health is easy if we make the lifestyle
simple and adopt natural ways. It may also be stressed that
diseases are the result of unhealthy and unhygienic way of
living. If we keep our external, and internal parts of the body
clean and free from foreign matter, we will be immune from
many physical ailments. The cause of diseases is due to the
accumulation of foreign matter in the body by wrong feeding,
impure air and lack of proper exercise. It will be advisable to
follow a life style in keeping with the simple laws of nature.
