A Step in the Right Direction

The life of seafaring forces you to be away from your family for months on end. Being healthier enables you to enjoy quality time with your family after your seafaring days are over without having to constantly worry about any lingering medical issues.
The lifestyle recommendations listed in this guide may be difficult for you to implement all at once. You need to remember that the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle is a marathon, not a sprint. Try to adjust your lifestyle a little at a time. If you put in effort consistently, you will definitely see the improvements to your health.
