It is very normal for one to panic at the mention of the word “Diabetes”
If you are suffering from this alarming disease, it is worth caution and worry but to the extent that it helps you recover from it and not bog you down and handicap you mentally.
Once you are aware that your body has strayed away from one of its routine processes of producing the Insulin that helps absorb the sugar from your food intake you do need to ring the bell!!! But rest assured that recovery is a sure shot and if you put in the effort, things will get back to normal, the new normal.
The body needs to be trained to adapt a healthier and organized way of living. Following a balanced meal plan, adding a lot more vegetables, fruits, nuts, cereals to your meals and cutting down on heavy carbs, trans-fats and foods with heavy level of preservatives will do the trick.
Adding a good exercise regime is a thumb rule as far as overcoming this barrier is concerned. Walking, yoga, swimming are some of the very common forms of workout that will help for sure. Going that extra mile and appointing a personal trainer to suit your body requirements would be a great idea too!!
Last but not least don’t let this monster affect your mind as much as it has affected your body. Learn to deal with it in a very positive manner, keep yourself well occupied to avoid food cravings from affecting you. As the saying goes, an empty mind is the devils workshop, this holds true while trying to cope with diabetes too.
The moment your mind is unoccupied you will feel it crave for goodies and treats which should be under watch constantly. So keep yourself occupied, cultivate a hobby, increase your steps and cut down your bites. There you are! Ready to take life in your own stride.
