Life can be stressful, but when you’re a carefree person you don’t let anything get you down, which could have some positive implications for your health. Stress often leads people to pick up bad habits to help them cope, which can include smoking, drinking too much, taking illegal drugs and eating too much. However, it is still possible to engage in these kinds of activities when you take a carefree approach to living and sometimes it may even be more likely, as you don’t always bother to think about the consequences.
Thus, if you have a tendency to eat and drink too much you could quite easily exceed your calorie requirements and start to pile on the pounds. Most people are anxious when they see their weight increasing every time they step on the scales and will make an effort to alter their habits so they can halt the weight gain and hopefully reverse it so they will end up as light as they used to be. When you take a carefree approach to living you usually go with the flow and so accept weight gain as something that happens to everyone.
If you fail to address your weight gain, though, you may find yourself continuing to gain weight, which isn’t particularly good for your health. You may have bags of confidence and high self-esteem so that you’re not particularly bothered about the superficial aspects of weight gain, but you can only ignore the health implications of being overweight for so long. Eventually, if you keep gaining weight, you will find it more difficult to live the life you’re used to and you won’t have such a carefree existence when you struggle to even leave the house.
When you’re a carefree person you usually focus more on the present and on living for the moment, rather than what the consequences of your actions will be. You might have fun eating as much junk food as you desire and going out drinking with friends, while avoiding any form of physical activity, but this kind of lifestyle will catch up with you in the end.
Although it may seem like a hassle watching what you eat and making time for exercise this could help you control your weight and prolong your life, which will at least increase the possibility you will be able to live a more-ore-less carefree life for longer. You don’t want to find that your life is cut short just because you couldn’t be bothered to eat healthily and exercise regularly.
