12. Procrastinating on Health-Related Matters

It is essential to regularly check your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels for if these three key elements are heightened, they are the biggest silent risk factors that contribute to fatalistic ailments, such as diabetes, heart diseases and strokes.

If your diet is brimming with meals that are extremely high in fats, sugar and oil, you are devouring empty calories that contain very few, and in most cases non-existent, nutrients to energize your body.
