4 Health Regrets You Could Have As You Grow Old

October 10th, 2020

What’s the worst thing about regret?

It’s that you cannot do anything about it… especially when it comes to health-related regrets.

Despite knowing the basics of how to live a healthy life, the majority of people don’t stay on course.

Did you know that one in four American adults spend more than 8 hours a day sitting?

Sedentary lifestyle has emerged to be a critical problem now. And if you’re part of that crowd who doesn’t indulge in enough physical activities, it’s going to be the biggest regret you’ll have as you grow old.

1. Being physically inactive

Sedentary lifestyle increases the risks of having cardiovascular disease, obesity, osteoporosis, lipid disorders, colon cancer, depression, and other ailments. If you don’t fix your lifestyle now, you will regret it as health problems begins to surface.

2. Not caring about mental health

Indeed, the conversation on mental health remains away from the mainstream. And this is a big reason why people continue to ignore their mental health. Don’t be one of them! Your mental health affects and shapes the quality of your life. And if you’re not living a happy and content life, it will certainly root out into regrets. So, if you have any mental health problems, Google “wellness center near me”, find a good clinic, and get professional help.

3. Having unprotected sex

20 million new STD infections occur every year in the USA. That’s a serious number. While we certainly have better practices and medicines to keep STDs under control once contracted, the disease does affect the quality of life. So, it’s essential that you avoid unprotected sex. Make sure you visit an STD testing center and get tested every couple of years to stay on the safer side.

4. Poor dental hygiene

This might not necessarily look like a big deal but it is. Sure we now have better technologies to fix every possible dental problem you can think of. But those treatments come with a hefty price tag. Plus, they require regular maintenance. And most importantly, your natural sets of teeth is now compromised. This is why, when you’re young, you must take adequate care and preventive measures to ensure good dental health. If not, when older, with toothache, eroded enamel, stains, and other possible problems, you will regret not doing enough for your teeth.


These are four health regrets you will have as you grow old… unless you act now.

Of course, there are plenty of other health-related things you might end up regretting, like eating unhealthy foods, not keeping a check on your cholesterol level, over-stressing everything, not visiting a doctor for regular checkups, and more.

In the end, the biggest takeaway is that you should take better care of your physical and mental health now. If you don’t, you will inevitably face a lot of problems when older.
