Thailand is a beautiful country to live in, and many people love it for the delicious food, warm tropical weather, and beautiful beaches and scenery it offers. However, statistics show that the longer you stay there, the more likely you are to get sick or have an accident, so you need to take excellent care of your health. Below are some of the ways you can take care of your health while in Thailand and help ensure you stay fit, healthy, and happy.
You do not have to cook for yourself when you live in Thailand as almost everywhere you go, there is someone selling food that you can buy. There is plenty of delicious foods sold on the street and in the many restaurants and takeaways you see, but it may not be the healthiest choice. Start to cook for yourself in Thailand to control what is put in your meal and ensure that you eat healthily and your food is cooked cleanly.
Go For Regular Check-Up
After you reach the age of 40 or so, it is advisable to go for a regular health check-up at your local doctors or hospital. You want to check when we get older things such as blood sugar levels, cholesterol, blood pressure, and other things that can mean we are sick and diagnose them as quickly as possible. As soon as you are aware of a problem, the sooner you can start treating it, whether through medication or diet and exercise.
Get Plenty Of Exercise
You will also want to ensure that you do plenty of physical activity when living in Thailand, which can be hard when the weather gets scorching and humid. However, there are plenty of air-conditions gyms throughout Thailand, although working out in the hot weather has many benefits for your fitness and stamina. You can also go swimming with lots of public swimming pools and private gyms that you can attend and use their facilities.
Limit Your Partying
Thailand is a country that loves to party, and if you live in Bangkok, it is a city that never sleeps with a party going on somewhere all the time. However, you will want to limit the amount of partying you do when you are in Bangkok to stop you from getting into a routine of going out and drinking too much. You can still go out and enjoy yourself, just not every night! Go out and have fun with your friend and enjoy a few drinks, but try not to drink too much and ensure you get home at a reasonable time.
