The importance of Check-ups in Health Prevention

The start of a new year always brings new health goals and the promise to take a good care of body and mind.

Committing to a healthy lifestyle is the best way to start off the New Year.

Eat better, sleep well, and practice exercise regularly can help prevent diseases. But if you want to assess how good is your health, you can do a complete check-up. Regular health check-ups improve your potential for a long and healthy life. Check-ups offer a look into how your body is functioning and your risks for certain types of diseases. They help guide physician recommendations to minimize the occurrence of disease and reduce their impact. For example, the impact of excess weight is clearly assessed in a health check-up.

Medical Port check-up programs are customized according to your needs. You can enjoy your stay in Portugal to a great extent and get to know how good your health is. With centuries of History it’s no surprise that there are plenty of places to see and things to do. From visiting magnificent castles to amazing contemporary art museums, the choice is yours. Portugal is a very safe destination, as it’s ranked 18 out of 162 in the Global Peace Index. There’s an average of 3300 hours of sunshine per year, one of the highest in Europe and nearly 30% of the population is fluent in English.

Portugal is the World’s Best Golf Destination

In the first annual World Golf Awards, Portugal received the awards of World’s Best Destination and Europe’s Best Destination.

These two important distinctions reflect the efforts made to establish Portugal as a leading golf destination.

Portuguese golf resorts offer high quality golf courses and luxury accommodations, providing guests with the best golf experience and competing with the world’s best golf destinations like the United States, Argentina, Australia, South Africa or Malaysia.

The award for “Europe’s best new golf course” was for the North course of the Portuguese resort Quinta do Lago, in Algarve. The mild weather Portugal enjoys all year round is one of the reasons for these awards.

The first edition of the World Golf Awards was held in Conrad Algarve and the second edition is already being put in place.  The World Golf Awards are a part of the World Travel Awards, distinguishing the best in travel since 1993, where Conrad Algarve won the World’s Leading Luxury Resort in 2013 and 2014.

Golf lovers may not realize how the game can improve their life and health conditions. And is a natural way of losing weight. Playing an 18-hole game of golf burns at least 900 calories, according to www.getintogolf.com.  A round of golf takes about four hours, which corresponds to walk around five to six miles. The health benefits of playing golf include: muscle toning and strengthening and stress relieving.  Also the vitamin D you get from the exposure to sunlight is essential for a healthy life.
