It’s easy to take the modern world for granted. But when you look at today’s world with a bit of perspective, it becomes instantly clear that you’d much rather live today than at any point in history. 

Let’s think, as an example, of what life would have been like in 1300 in the UK. It would be cold and wet, for starters. There was no sushi. And if you fell ill — and you would — then best of luck for you, because you’re going to need it. Today’s world may be cold and wet, but we have central heating and waterproof homes. You can get sushi in thirty minutes. And your health is in better shape, too. Here’s why it’s easier to look after your well-being than ever before. 

We Know What’s Good/Bad For Us

It’s much easier to prevent an issue than to treat it. In the olden days, you’d have to wait until you had an issue before you sought treatment. Today, we have a pretty good understanding of what’s good and what’s bad for you. Just think of all those people who were smoking cigarettes in the 1950s who had no idea what they were doing to their bodies. If you’re not sure of the healthy habits you should have, then a quick search online will do the job for you. Of course, you then need to do the habits, but at least that’s on you. 

There’s a Treatment For a Wide Range of Issues

Imagine you had, say, poor vision in the Middle Ages. What would you do? The answer is: you’d squint, since there was nothing else you could do. Today, we have treatments for a wide range of serious and general issues, and they couldn’t be easier to access. Even things like erectile dysfunction can be treated online in the modern world. Whatever issue you’re facing, there will surely be at least some treatment available to you — and we shouldn’t take that for granted!

There Are Free Resources Available 

The internet doesn’t always have the best reputation. However, it’s a pretty amazing tool. Think of this: in the past, if you wanted to be healthy then you’d probably need to join a gym, find an instructor, and generally spend a lot of time and effort. Today, you can just use one of the many free YouTube tutorials available to you. From yoga to workouts to meditation, there are thousands of top-quality classes that’ll help you to get fit, and they’re all free. 

Friends and Family Have Advice

Finally, there’s the power of community. Of course, people have been talking to their friends and family since forever. However, back then, there were some issues that were not spoken about. If you had mental struggles in the 1950s, you probably wouldn’t bring it up with a loved one. Today, that’s all changed — people are much more open about these types of things, and we all benefit. It makes it easier to find relevant advice, as well as a supportive shoulder!
