Since the 20th century the modernization progressed, relieved our life, but, at the same time, affected it in a negative way. Everything that has been invented to save our time and energy has a negative impact on our health, and as a result, we have the epidemic of obesity among our children.
All new things are like a magnet for children, and it’s evident that they are attracted by them, but children rarely realise that a too big attraction can become a bad habit. Everything needs to be done with measure, or they could gradually become obese. Sport, that usually keeps our body healthy and beautiful, has been replaced, in addition to 7 hours of sitting at classes, with abundant sitting on chair, sofa, in front of the computer, or TV. In general, the children’s daily movement has dropped 3 times, because now, instead of going outside and playing ball with friends, they would prefer to play with a virtual friend sitting at home motionless.
Another cause of obesity is improper nutrition. Modernization has brought a lot of food products that contain high amounts of unhealthy additives, and, because people are easily conquered by tasty food, children consume these products in excessive amounts. Products with industrial additives have a negative effect on human health, because they can’t be totally processed, they disturb human’s digestion, which is one of the causes of obesity. Nowadays, bullying at schools is more widespread and common phenomenon, children are getting mature too fast, they are becoming too temperamental, and are getting stressed because of everything that is happening not the way they have thought. Stress also has a negative impact on the child’s physical condition .
People cannot stop the process of modernization of the world, but they can take care of their children, they can educate in them, since their tender age, the idea of a healthy lifestyle, because the condition of our body depends on nutritional and psychological education that we are supposed to have.
Keep your body healthy,
With warm wishes, Cristina.
