Easy thing to do for your health #5: Get a physical



You feel good, so why oh why would you go to the doctor. Who likes doctor's offices, right?!  At some point after we left our pediatrician's office, many among us stopped getting physicals.

But even if you are feeling easy breezy beautiful, you could use a check up every once and a while. You may need a booster on some of your vaccinations (like Pertussis, which is terrible, and I'll write about at another point). You may have high cholesterol or blood pressure and not even know it. Maybe you have a  nagging problem that isn't really a big deal, but you want to ask someone about it.

Remember to make a list of questions that you have been meaning to ask or any random symptoms that you have been experiencing. And most importantly, be honest when answering questions - the only person that you are harming by lying is you!
