Oneof the main aspects that would be required in making an assessment ofMaria’s condition and risks is her health history. Health historyis an important indicator of the pertinent aspects and issues thatcan face an individual and is used to assess the mitigating effectsand methods that can be used in enhancing healthy living (Jarvis etal. 2016). It is essential in Maria’s case to understand the healthissues thereof in order to come up with the best model for healthyliving.
Oneof the real threats is lack of concentration and fatigue due to lackof enough sleep and constant problems with the breathing system as aresult of the amount of work and lack of exercise. She has a lot ofresponsibilities, and yet she does not get ample sleep or any timefor exercises. Continued increase in weight may lead to potentialproblems of heart attacks or conditions such as High Blood Pressureand diabetes if not checked.
Theculture is essential in understanding food intake and the mainconstituents that make up most of the cultural dishes (Jarvis et al.,2016). It is helpful in augmenting the lifestyle of the individualand coming up with the best regimen and methods that are essential inchanging and developing the best health habits for an individual. Itis one of the parameters that are used in assessing a specificindividual and as an indicator on the historical background that isessential for individuals accordingly.
Oneof the risks that Maria stands to face is difficulty breathing whendoing chores. Since she has a reduced heart rate and is engaged inmost activities that do not require a lot of energy, she may havedifficulty breathing as a result. One of the main goals that she canset is to reduce heart rate when doing basic chores to meet the rateof breathing required in her system accordingly.
Thegoal can only be achieved through increased exercises throughcommitting some of her time to ample exercises on a daily basis.Exercises are important for the heart as they ensure that the numberof beats per minute are reduced when not partaking into difficultchores and enhances the breathing system (Jarvis et al., 2016).
Inconclusion, Maria can integrate a proper working model that meets herneeds through aligning her daily routine to healthy practices.Although she has a lot of responsibilities, there is a need to engagein the best healthy practices and lifestyle to meet her needs.
