Consequences…. They are inevitable. We have learned about them since our youth.
When we were young our parents would tell us, “do not touch that stove!” Well, sometimes we didn’t listen and we would get burnt.
Likewise, as adults we still have choices and consequences to those choices. This week we want to discuss your personal health and how your choices will affect the consequences that may come to you and your loved ones.
Please understand that some consequences or health struggles are inevitable......
(i.e. an accidents, genetics, unchangeable circumstances, past decisions)
But some do come by our own choices.
In your TO DO list today you have some Preventive Care models that insurance companies and doctors have come up with.
Most of these preventative care recommendations either suggest you have a certain amount of physical exams or immunizations in a certain time period. The hope is that your doctor will catch whatever ailment you could have in the upcoming years and recommend ways to avoid that ailment. Physical examinations are great in finding out if something is wrong and immunizations can ward off disease, but there are usually small changes in your behavior that will remedy some ailments that might befall you if you do not change.
A Band-Aid can cover a hurt, but if you do not touch the stove you will never experience the pain.
We don’t want you to experience the pain. That is why in the weeks to follow we will help explain how you can do small steps in avoiding those stoves in life.
