Finally we have left January and the year can finally continue, between over spending over the festive and school fees you could almost hear a collective sigh of relief as the month of love begins.

 We are in a month where for a single day people are almost forced into being romantic, others find the courage to approach their crushes, and it is cute for children giving their Valentine’s chocolates or gifts.
Personally, I don’t feel it’s right to be forced to show someone I love affection on a specific day, it should happen naturally and as often as possible.

Then, I wonder how many of us would show ourselves some love even if there was a day set aside for it. I’ve seen a post on Facebook a couple of times where it asks “If you were to list the things you love in this world how long would the list be before you mentioned yourself?”

I’m not sure about you but for myself I would put myself quite far down the list, I tend to think and worry about a lot of issues and people before I even think of myself.

I do though try to look after myself pretty well, although I will be the first to admit that I could probably do a whole lot better.
It is partly my fault and partly circumstantial, as much as I take time to exercise and I try to eat and drink healthy, the eating part could be a lot better, but I would love to be able to go for regular checkups with doctors but without medical aid it is not possible.

Last weekend I was in Johannesburg for a 30th birthday party, there must have been over 50 guests and I was probably in the best shape out of all of them and definitely of the people my age and those younger, I’ll be the first to admit that though there is still a lot that I need to do to reach the high level and that is what made the scenario that much more confusing.

It got me thinking seriously about where we are today as a generation and our mindset towards our health and eventually our fitness? A large majority of the guests smoke, which still amazes me that in this day and age when we know the damage this habit does to the human body and not only to the smoker but to non-smokers who inhale the smoke.
