The twenty first century is not the worst period to live in, it is quite fun actually – we have the internet, which is the greatest source of information ever, we have cable TV, mobile phones, fast vehicles, and many other commodities, but how is it then, that in this day and age, mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety are on the rise, along with obesity, diabetes and cancer? The truth is, people are living their lives wrong, and aren’t even aware of it. Let’s try to point out some mistakes that a great number of people make while trying to lead a perfectly normal life.


Have you ever heard the saying “you are what you eat”. If you have, what are you then? I don’t think that we should be built from chemicals and food additives, and it seems that it is exactly what most people in the world are trying to accomplish right now, but it is not possible, trust me. A diet of a modern man is full of processed food, sodas, instant microwave junk food, etc. This is not what a human being should eat. There are numerous studies suggesting that this kind of food is not appropriate for the proper development of the human organism, because it mostly contains empty calories, which means that it doesn’t provide important nutrients, essential for one’s health. Fast food and fizzy drinks are often linked to the development of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Because of the fat and sugar it contains, this kind of food makes our stomach seem full, but it leaves the body hungry, craving for nutrients. Many people believe that following a well balanced diet is hard and demanding, but that can not be further from the truth. If you would only replace candy with fruits, potato chips with nuts and seeds, hamburger with some grilled lean meat – you would be halfway there.

Lack of physical activity

Most people nowadays are going to work by a car, sit in a chair while working and lay in bed while watching TV. This is not all bad if you include some exercise in your daily routine. The human body is meant to be used. We are built for hunting animals with a spear, climbing trees and conquering mountains, and spending all day motionless will make you evolve into a kind of cripple who gets tired when taking the stairs to the second floor. Don’t divide yourself from your true nature. If you exercise three to four times a week, for about an hour, you will definitely feel and look a lot better, because the more energy you spend, the more will return to you. It is a fact that people who are in good physical condition have more confidence and are often better at dealing with everyday problems. Running, swimming, pumping iron, whatever you choose is a good choice, just don’t let the chair eat you and spit out an obese, unhappy and sick individual – which you are NOT, believe me.

Avoiding to visit a doctor

Not going to regular check ups at the doctor’s office now, when medicine is reaching its peak, is more than irresponsible. Some modern illnesses are very hard to spot, because at the early stages, there may be no symptoms at all. You shouldn’t neglect minor health issues, because they can become major in no time. Many people skip going to the doctor’s, and especially the dentist, because they fear them. However, this fear is more than irrational because those people are here to help, not to hurt you. When dentists are in question, you should be more frightened of the consequences of avoiding the dentist than the dentist himself. Tooth cavities can be the trigger for many other, more serious and even life threatening health issues, which can not be neglected, no matter how hard you try. Don’t let the fear take control over your life and go to the dentist as soon as you notice something bad going on.

    If you ask me then I’ll say that most of the human make this mistake due to lack of time…The world has become fast and to survive it even 24 hours a day isn’t enough…isn’t that true?? I guess so…

    The whole “Lack of physical activity” thing is my biggest worry for myself. I eat pretty well and see a doctor regularly, but, like most people, I really don’t like exercise. Maybe I’ll make a resolution to go for walks after dinner.

    Diet is the thing which should be concerned by either diseased and healthy people. A balanced diet can keep you look young always.

  9. Hi Ivan,

    Thanks for this lovely post!

    I always though that the modern human is advanced in every way and is not lagging anywhere. But with your true points, now I doubt about it. Humans generally disregard this diet thing, unless and until they get any sort of disease.

    Thanks for you valuable post,

    I think even if you are on a healthy diet you need to workout. And even if you have both healthy diet and excersize routine then you need to go for regular checkups as well.

    I haven’t been to the doctor in forever, but I havent’t had any ailments. The dentist – that is somebody that I should go to, I’ll admit it.

    Funny but your three topics all seem to go hand in hand are all seem to be the causes for why America is quickly becoming the most obese country on the planet.
    Americans really need to get off the couch and quit watching reruns of Friends or America’s Got Talent and go outside and do something physical for a change.

    I know this human would have too many mistakes to mention in this space :) The key is to not allow those mistakes to prevent us from moving towards our goals and learning from them

  15. Ivan, you nailed it buddy.
    For past one or two years my diet has been increased gradually and due to lack of physical activity, I am getting fatter day by day.
    And for past few weeks I have been planning to start jogging in the morning but is not able to do so.
    Will try to overcome this and get in shape. Keep rocking.

  18. Hey Ivan,
    I really don’t visit a doctor, and I agree it’s not correct. Thank u for your nice post.

    Having a good diet and exercise frequently are so important for your health. You are right that living in the modern world makes it difficult to achieve good health especially if you are in America where things are always go go go! Efficiency, work longer, more stress and so forth. It is not conducive to good health.

    It is also important to eat small snacks every two to three hours. Eating large meals two times a day is also really unhealthy. Thanks for the post. Now I need to go respond to emails while I ride a stationary bike haha.

    I personally make the mistake of not visiting the dentist regularly. And when I finally went to the dentist, I had to do 4 seatings and one root canal. I also realized how important physical activity can be.

  21. Our bodies were not made to be run on high fructose corn syrup…..most people would be better off increasing their fat intake and cutting all the sugar. I think this is why the Paleo Diet has been so accepted!
