Health is generally a touchy subject with young adults.
Because we are young, we tend to feel a sense of invincibility. We tend to put our health on hold at times saying things like: I have time to do it later, I’ll work out later, I’ll go to the doctor later, I’m young so I’ll worry about that later. It’s always later. Well I’m here to tell you, don’t wait. It’s important to go get check-ups. Go get a physical. Take care of your body. You only get one body so why not make it your temple? You should want what’s best for you. I challenge you to go get a check-up if you haven’t yet.
Check-ups are beneficial so we know where we stand with our health.
It’s a great opportunity to figure out how your body is functioning as you grow older and how your body adjusts to your lifestyle. Some of us sit at a desk for 8 hours a day which can lead to back problems. Perhaps you’re someone who is on their feet all day, this can lead to wearing and tearing of the knees. Our diets may not be best suited for us which can lead to our levels being off. One may need more iron or simply lack vitamin C. How would one know this? Sometimes our bodies don’t react quickly. Sometimes it’s a longer process that can lead to illness or even worse. That’s why I encourage going in for a check-up. Going in for an exam on the regular can help identify certain problems before they become an issue. It helps to figure out if there is a problem early so the solution can be treated better. The sooner the better.
By getting check-ups, you’re getting the best possible treatment for your body along with peace of mind. Josh Billing once said,
“Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it.”
Why take our health for granted?
We’re blessed with the ability to see, touch, hear, feel, and smell. Keep your senses sharp. Prioritize your health. We wouldn’t call-in to work and expect to get paid, nor would we skip class and expect an A. Why would we do that to our body? You get out what you put in. Going in for a check-up is a great first step toward living a long, healthy life. Let’s not take opportunity for granted, go get a check-up. Our greatest wealth is our health.
