What sustainable development goal do you value most? Why this one?
Good Health & Well-Being
In my opinion, health is a priority, but not merely the facilities that all people should be able to use, such as hospital, general practitioner and/or other medical support. The society can benefit from choosing the right things to eat, the right proportions to eat and to have a healthy lifestyle in general.
Nowadays, life is getting more convenient and luxurious, but it is not always beneficial to our health. Together, we can change this by providing extra attention to the development of children until they are young adults. Regarding a healthy diet, we should aim to provide a more friendly pricing strategy for the better foods in life. Additionally, we should share tips and ideas that explain the best way to prepare these foods and what exactly is best about preparing them this way.
Last, but not least, it is important to share knowledge about how the right balance between diet and an active lifestyle can help a person in making the most out of a day.
