One of the many things that will keep you up at night once you become a parent is worrying about your family’s safety. While you can make yourself paranoid thinking about how your family is keeping safe while you are abroad, things that most people fear, like violence or accidents, don’t even fall in the top 10 causes of deaths in the Philippines. Taking care of your own health while you are away from them is probably the most commonsense thing you can do to safeguard your family.
If you are not around to provide for your family, then who will do it? Not only can serious illness take you away from your family permanently, it may make you unable to work and provide for them. Dealing with huge medical expenses can also be financially devastating, impacting the wellbeing and future stability of your loved ones.
The number one thing you can do to ensure you’re around to care for your family in the future and support them for a long time—while also protecting them from high medical bills—is to safeguard your own health. Thankfully, making some lifestyle changes can go a long way.
