Abstract
ACHIEVING AND PROMOTING HEALTHY LIFESTYLE BY SELF-MONITORING HABIT

P. Paul Divakar, Ch. Mydhili* and G. Vijaya Lakshmi

ABSTRACT

India is battling a full-blown health crisis. Lancet study should be treated as a warning to our policymakers. Research reveals a dangerously rapid epidemiological transition and a rising burden of non-communicable diseases. The country is far away from achieving its Sustainable Development Goals. Dismal infrastructure and the surging medical bills pushed 5.5 million Indians back to poverty last year. If the same scenario continues, India will miss its global nutrition targets set for 2025 and is ranked 145th among 195 countries in terms of accessibility and quality of healthcare. However, government spending on healthcare is still lower than the global average. To avoid the forthcoming threats & health crisis, we need to focus on preventing diseases than treating them. Solution to this problem is within our hands. Youth should develop good lifestyle health habits and grow up to be healthy citizens by self monitoring their health. Our strategy should be to require that all K-12(kindergarten - 12th grade) schools in India be Health Promoting Schools. Health Education is to be mandatory in every school and at every grade level. The Department of Education in each State and Union Territory should take on this challenge and make it a high priority.

Keywords: Health Crisis, Non-Communicable Diseases, Health Habits, Good Lifestyle, Self Monitoring.
