  • Taking care of your health

  • In the past few weeks I have heard over ten people having illnesses relating to poor health practices so I thought it would be good to shed some light on the importance of taking care of your health. We all are guilty one way or another relating to our health and if I conducted a poll question asking how many people take care of their health, I would be the first to answer ‘most of the time.’

  • In the past few weeks I have heard over ten people having illnesses relating to poor health practices so I thought it would be good to shed some light on the importance of taking care of your health.

    Growing up, I never heard about my parents getting sick or death related illnesses, I am sure they existed but I just didn’t hear about them. It wasn’t until I became a teenager when I suffered an illness that it awakened me to be cautious about my health. Well, during college I endured days of bad eating habits and nights of drinking and partying, I still made sure to keep up with my regular doctor visits. Sometimes, it’s just not enough.
    We don’t realize that stress from the job or problems at home can impact our health, and just bad eating habits, and lack of exercising too.
    I once thought my headaches that I was experiencing everyday would go away, later to find out that I had a tumor in my brain that was causing the headaches, had I not been smart about going to the doctor, who knows where I would be.
    Months of tests, and countless bottles of medication, and surgery, finally the headaches seized.
    Usually, we don’t worry about our health until something begins to bother us; I encourage each of you to take care of your health by talking with your doctors and eating right, as well as exercising regularly. We often hear our doctors say that its great that we caught this early, through preventative visits and regularly routine visits, we can keep up with a healthy you!
