Welcome to LIFT issue 16

Welcome to LIFT issue 16

While we at Lift are largely focused on helping out our readers with advancing their academic and professional careers, this week we are honing in on something that we think is necessary regardless of what it is you are striving for: good health.

We scoured the city for the best young doctors to share their advice on everything from relieving stress (page 8), working out (page 12), dentistry (page 3) and curing acne (page 8). If joining the medical field is something that interests you, we even have tips from Chea Samnang, possibly Cambodia’s most famous doctor (page 3), and a review of the possibilities within the health-care field (page 4).

It is easy to forget about your own physical and mental health when you have hundreds of other things to worry about on a daily basis. But taking some time to worry about yourself is one of the best things you can do to guarantee that you are performing in top form. It is a good thing to be busy, but not at the cost of your mind and body.

We hope that after reading this issue, you will understand how to better take care of yourself, and realise that it only takes a little time each day to keep your mind and body running smoothly. When you have problems, don’t ignore them. Seek out a doctor who can help you overcome what ails you. Figure out how you can fit healthy habits into your life and you will be happier in the coming days and future decades.
