Major Signs that you are not as Healthy as you Think you Are*

Things like weight loss can seem harmless but at the end of the day, it is also a sign that you are not as healthy as you could be. If you want to find out what else could be impacting you, then take a look below.

You’re Bloated

You might follow doctor’s orders and you may even eat your greens, but this doesn’t mean that you are in the clear when it comes to your health. Being bloated can mean that you have a serious health issue. It may be that you are suffering from irritable bowel syndrome or that you have Crohn’s disease. When you eat too much, or if you eat food that you are not really supposed to eat, then you may find that you experience some kind of discomfort.

You Snore

Snoring essentially happens when air cannot move through your mouth and your nose. The muscles that are in your throat can easily slip back and obstruct your airways. If you have this issue, then you may find that you have adenoids or even nasal polyps. If you are overweight or if you have had a lot to drink then you are at a higher risk of this, so you need to keep that in mind if possible. Snoring can also be a sign that you are struggling with sleep apnea. That happens when your upper airways become blocked as you sleep, making you stop breathing for a couple of seconds. This can make you cranky during the day and you may even find that you have a hard time concentrating. This disruption can also cause high blood pressure or even heart conditions.

You feel Gassy

Passing gas during the day is normal but if you feel as though yours is getting out of control, then this is a sign that you have an issue on your hands. It may be that you have a food intolerance or that you are suffering from some kind of gastric disorder. If this is the case, then you need to try and make sure that you talk with your doctor. If you can do this, then you will soon find that they can help you to get to the root of the issue and that they can also talk you through any possible causes. You should see a doctor if your flatulence is persistent or if it is unexplained. If you have symptoms alongside it, such as a swollen stomach, then this is another sign that you need to try and talk with your doctor.

You’re Tired

If you always feel tired, regardless of how much sleep you have had then this is another bad sign. You need to talk to your doctor about this if possible because sleep and lack of energy is a sign that you are not getting the sleep you need. It may be that you have lack of energy and motivation too.  If you are not getting enough sleep then you may find that you are way more prone to things such as acne breakouts too. If you want to help yourself, then it may be wise to invest in things such as Duac gel. When you do, you will soon find that you are able to get a way better result out of your skincare routine until you are able to get to the root of the issue.

You’re Unable to Sleep

It’s one thing for you to have a hard time falling asleep when you are not tired at all, but if you feel as though you cannot get any sleep at all then this is not a good sign. If this is temporary, then you may be able to resolve the issue by taking some supplements. If you have been experiencing this for quite some time however then it may be that you are suffering from a condition such as chronic insomnia. If this is the case, then you need to have a good talk with your doctor. If you don’t then you may find that the issue gets worse over time and that you are just not able to move past it.

So, sometimes it doesn’t matter how healthy you are because if you do not look after yourself as much as you could be, then you may find that your health suffers as a result and that you are not able to unwind. Even TV if you think you’re healthy, there may be underlying problems too, so it’s important to stay aware of them if possible.

What I'm Looking Forward To In 2022!

I am so behind with blog posts for this year, so this one is coming to you a little bit LATE!! 2022 has got a few things in store for me, so I thought I would share some of the things I'm looking forward to this upcoming year.

I Turn 30!
Saying goodbye to my 20's in a few months time and I am not prepared for that! I still feel like I'm about 25 years old, not the 29 that I currently am! No big plans for the milestone year, but I have the week off work for it, so might do something then.

Center Parcs Holiday
Florida had to be cancelled and moved to summer 2023, so we decided to head back to Elvden! We loved it last year for our 4 night stay, so we're going back for 7 nights in summer. Hoping to get a lovely lodge again and be able to do all the activities we loved least year. The restaurants are open this time to, so that will be nice to see what they are like in person. 

Harry Potter Studio Trip
This is still only a possible idea at the moment as it's currently down to money, time off work and when we can go with low crowd levels. I haven't been since 2018 and would love to go and see some of the new sections that were not quite open yet when I last visited.

My Blog Turns 9
My first 'proper' blog post was, Tania Watches Downton, on October 3rd 2013. Meaning that 2022 is it's 9th birthday! I know I have been awful at posting in the past few years, but this little slice of internet is still a happy place and my home!

Chessington Theme Park Days Out
At Christmas we had some chocolates that came with half price vouchers, so we are going to be making good use of these! Some time in the spring and late summer we're hoping to get two trips out of the vouchers and see what we can do. Hopefully will be going here for my birthday!!

That's about it for plans this far year, but maybe more things will crop up as the weather improves and we have some holiday time! What are you excited for this year? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)
