Have an Annual Health Checkup

In just a few days, it will be the end of August and it will have been eight months since January. If you haven’t accomplished your goals, perhaps now is a time to reevaluate them and reprioritize. If you have not yet gone for a health check up, then I recommend you do so. Health should be a priority.

Surprisingly, not a lot of people regularly have annual checkups and we go through life thinking that we are healthy, all is fine and that we are still young. Nothing is going to happen to us.

The sad truth is, we get older every year. Our bodies get older, and suddenly we find ourselves faced with health problems we previously never thought of. Backaches seem more common in the thirties. If I get up too fast, or move too fast, I risk hurting my back which results in endless days of torture and wearing low unattractive heels. I finally understand while the older ladies are always spotted wearing “comfortable” shoes versus the high high heels. I still love my heels, and so being somewhat shoe conscious, I shall have to dish out the extra cash to pay for comfortable ones, or just spend less on miscellaneous toys.

Blood test results are important too. Many people I know were completely unaware of having an abnormal functioning of the liver or kidneys. A lady I know has had to take work leave for her kidney had been working overtime and had succumbed to kidney failure. Taking medicine and antibiotics without first seeking doctor’s advice is not recommend. Apparently, she just went to the pharmacy.

If you get dizzy from time to time or feel abit under the weather, have a good rest and be aware that something might be up… So take some time out, have an annual health check up. Prevention is better than cure! :):)
