HEALTHY LIVING CAMPAIGN IN SAGAMU AND ABEOKUTA, OGUN STATE, NIGERIA



The importance of healthy living cannot be overemphasized.There is a popular saying that a man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools. It is said that he who has health has hope and he who has hope has everything.

Healthy living should be a habit and over time,its positive effects on health become obvious.
Live healthy and less trips are made to the doctors.
Live healthy and on the long run,it saves money.
 
Regular exercise and eating healthy are some components of healthy living and are easy to do.All that is needed is determination.

Eating healthy and regular exercise go a long way in preventing being overweight and obese.

They are important aspects in the management of chronic diseases like hypertension and diabetes.

With the importance of healthy living at the back of our minds,we at The Nigeria Diabetes Online Community (NGDOC) decided to go on a healthy living campaign.
Randomly,we chose the ancient city of Abeokuta,the capital of Ogun State and Sagamu, a semi-urban local government area in Ogun State.



The aim of this campaign was to interact with as many people as possible,have an idea of what they consider to be components of healthy living,understand their views,learn from them and impart some knowledge about healthy living as it relates to obesity and diabetes.
The people of Abeokuta were receptive and willing to share.Most importantly,they were willing to learn.
We spoke to people individually and in groups,and I must say for me,the experience was fun and enlightening.

Topics covered included Healthy eating and the importance of exercise.



I spoke to a 65 year old grandmother who exercises regularly and eats healthy.Not looking bad for her age right?  

We also talked about Diabetes and its types and we realized that a lot of work still needs to be done in raising awareness for diabetes.We did try in our capacity to enlighten them as much as time would permit on how healthy living may on the long run reduce the risk of developing obesity and diabetes and how healthy living is important in the management of diabetes.

Most of them were all ears,and we were glad!Some people requested us to come back for another campaign in Abeokuta.

They obviously understand than knowledge is power.
 
We at The NGDOC intend to take the healthy living campaign to as many places as possible.

If you'd like us to visit a particular place,please let us know.We'll be glad to come and say hi.
 
Good health isn't something that can be bought.You can however increase your chances of having good health by living healthy.
Make a positive change in your lifestyle today.

  4. s more, Generation X and Y are accustomed to having more control over what they do and when they do it than any generation of workers before them.
    Destruction warlocks are scary because their burst

  12. Well we all have to do something to help ourselves and help others.
    The World Health Organisation (WHO) and International Diabetes Federation (IDF) have in a global report given estimate of 347 million people as living with diabetes, with 19.8 million from Africa.

    According to IDF 2013 report, Nigeria has the highest number of people with diabetes in Africa, with 3.9 million cases and 4.9 per cent national prevalence rate.

    The reports show that more than 80 per cent of diabetes deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries and that diabetes will be the 7th leading cause of death by 2030.

    Marketing Manager, Fidson Healthcare Plc, Mr. Friday Enaholo has therefore, advised on the need to live a healthy lifestyle through eating a balanced diet, avoiding excessive alcohol intake, engaging in regular physical exercise, reducing salt intake, maintaining a healthy body weight and avoiding smoking amongst others to prevent the disease.
    On my own I stumbled on a useful information while searching of diabetes cure or remedies that says:
