World Health day

On April 7th, people all across the world will commemorate World Health Day. For the past 70 years, this international event has raised awareness about a number of essential wellness themes. So, what exactly is World Health Day, and why is it important? Let's take a look at what you should know.

What Is World Health Day?

This worldwide event was first held in 1950 by the World Health Organization (WHO). Since then, each yearly event has focused on a different aspect of health. Universal Health Coverage (UHC), depression, diabetes, and food safety have all been topics in previous years. People can start planning their events and activities as soon as the annual topic is released.

World Health Organization secondary goals include:

  • Appreciate the work of nurses and midwives in the community
  • Enhance the profile of both nurses and midwives within the health care industry
  • Nurses and midwives deserve some extra support and investment

How to Get Involved in World Health Day 2022?

In a number of ways, you may participate in World Health Day 2022 and express your support. Check to see what local activities are taking place in your area, then glance through the WHO's list of simple ways you can help when April 7th arrives. Here's a rundown of some of the possibilities:

  • Write to politicians: Writing to politicians might be a smart place to start. Inquiring into how they assist nurses and midwives might lead to actual change or at the very least bring the issue to the attention of decision-makers.
  • Begin by signing a petition: Why not create a petition to encourage good change for nurses and midwives if you're genuinely enthusiastic about assisting them? To increase awareness, spread the word, and collect signatures, use one of the numerous internet services available.
  • Spend a day in the life of a nurse or midwife: Do you believe you could do what they do? Why not try shadowing one of these health-care experts for a day to get a better understanding of what they do? It's yet another WHO recommendation.

How to Protect Your General Health?

Be Active

Do you live a physically active lifestyle? Working in an office or sitting for long periods of time might be damaging to your health. According to the European Society of Cardiology, 20 years of sedentary behaviour might quadruple your chance of early death. Even if your job requires you to sit for the most of the day, there are still things you can do to increase your daily activity levels.

If you're not naturally inclined to go to the gym, don't worry. You don't have to use the treadmill to get some exercise. One of the wisest things you can do is incorporate exercise into your daily routine so you don't even realise you're doing it.

Eat Well

Eating wisely entails following a healthy, well-balanced diet rather than overindulging! "You are what you eat!" you've probably heard, and the National Institute of Health claims that what you eat might affect your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Consume a wide range of nutrient-dense foods: Vegetables, fruits, grains, protein-dense foods (such as seafood, lean meat, and eggs), and oils should all be part of your regular diet.

Limit your intake of unhealthy food groups: it's not just about what you consume, but also about what you don't eat. Saturated fats, trans fats, added sugars, and salt are all harmful components to ingest in moderation. Processed foods, high-sugar snacks, and adding salt to meals should all be avoided. Also, avoid deep-frying your meals!

Alcohol should only be consumed in moderation: The odd adult beverage is harmless, but keep in mind that women should have no more than one alcoholic beverage per day and men should take no more than two.
