As I was waiting for my wife at Walter Mart in Munoz, I noted my surroundings--especially the people around me. Four out of five were either busily texting or playing a game on their smartphones while a bank armored vehicle was unloading big amounts of cash.
And then four out of five people were smoking.
These two are easy and cheap ways that can kill your health.
I make it a point to be extra alert all the time, especially when something potentially dangerous is lurking around--like a bank armored vehicle unloading cash. If a holdup suddenly ensues, that will be a surefire thing that can kill your health--either a stray bullet hits you where it counts or someone mistakes you for an enemy and fires at you.
Worse, you're taken as hostage.
But most people just take these things for granted. While potential danger is there, they pay no attention and keep busy with their smartphones instead--texting, playing games or listening to music with their headphones. Once danger strikes, they get caught unaware and often figure as among the casualties.
I tell people I love and who value good heath to keep out of danger always. Where there is potential danger, get out from it. Each time you see a bank armored vehicle for instance, get away.
Then there's smoking. People decide to smoke for one reason--they think they'd look good doing it. It was really crazy seeing most people smoking around me. I couldn't choose a spot where I could be safe from secondhand smoke. They were everywhere--students, women, policemen, traffic aides, employees and ordinary pedestrians.
They feel "in" being able to smoke, but after it has silently wrecked their health, they regret it too late. I've seen how people who used to smoke suffer terribly when smoking-triggered deadly ailments set in. But before getting sick, they thought smoking looked smart and kept on doing it despite warnings which they mocked and disregarded.
There are ways to get cheap health and fitness with middle income budget, and there are also cheap ways to get seriously sick.
