A very good afternoon to the principal of SMK Taman Desa, teachers and my dearly beloved friends. It really gives me great pleasure to deliver you a speech today on healthy habits. Put on your thinking cap; try asking yourself, have you been on healthy diets? Have you gotten sufficient rest each day? Or even, have you been performing healthy lifestyle by doing sports regularly? Your answer lies with yourself. If you do not, start off with some basic healthy habits. Here are some advices… Avoid eating too much sweet or salty food.
Normally, these sweet or salty food are not healthy food because of the excessive salt and sugar content in the food product. Nevertheless, after a prolonged period of time having such bad eating habits, it shall direct us to diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. It has been kid’s nature to love tasty food without having any healthy eating mindset. As we’re older, change our diet by cutting down on sugar and salt food products starting from today! It would definitely be a healthier lifestyle with a longer lifespan. Moreover, I believe many of us here have enjoyed Chinese New Year.
Picturing all the junk food and soft drinks, I ought to advise you to have a good habit on drinking more water instead of soft drinks. One of the leading factors to heavy obesity is the huge consumption of soft drinks because it is high in calories and sugar, but low in nutrients. In conjunction with that, tooth decay, caffeine dependence and bone weakening are too mostly likely caused by soft drinks. Skipping meals are also one of the bad habits of students. Due to how young generation nowadays accentuate on their physical appearance, many of them skip meals to bring up a “good image”.
Well, it is a wrong perception which needed to be given advices on to put an end to it. Eat meals at regular times, breakfast, which is the most important meal of all and so needed to be taken care of whereas lunch and dinner at a suitable amount. Those among you who have slimming or cutting weight tendencies, please be advised to not skipped meals but have more meals in smaller portion. Again, it is a healthier lifestyle to be followed. Last but not least, practice having more rest and doing more sports during regular times.
We should never give excuse to not sleep or do sports due to large piles of homework, heavy bundle of house chores or even social stress. Why? Because if we do not have sufficient rest, we wouldn’t not have enough energy for daily activities and it shall disrupt our immune system. If we do not do sports, it affects our health to be worsened as our blood circulation was not improved. After all, keeping a good health should always be our main priority. Without good health, we would be prone to a lot of sickness and diseases. Prevention is always better than cure, mark that. Thank you.
