Get a check-up done today! Yes you, and right now! (Dramatic much lol)

We really need to do better. Some people don’t see the need to smell a hospital except they feel sick. Do you wait for your car to crash before you take it for maintenance? (Some of you shouldn’t answer that). You shouldn’t wait for your car to crash before taking it for a routine maintenance; you shouldn’t wait for your body to crash before taking it for a routine check-up! (I feel I should shout for those at the back)

Dear Inspired Pens readers schedule your check up. Take care of your body. Take care of your health, for yourself and for the people that are counting on you. All these chronic diseases don’t make noise early enough.

A lot of things that are taking lives could have been arrested early if you saw your doctor! Get a pap smear done, go for a breast examination, get a colonoscopy done, get your prostate checked out, and take your vaccines. All these big big grammar can be easily explained by your doctor, so ask and get it done.

While we are on the subject of doing right by our body, let’s also talk about self-care.

Some people are of the notion that this body is a perishable good, it is dust and taking care of it is not a necessity. While indeed, it is a perishable good, taking care of it is a necessity! Take care of yourself. Do things that make you feel pretty or handsome. Go for a spa day, do facials, get manicures and pedicures, take care of your skin (I am trying to do better in this department), treat yourself to a nice dinner once in a while, exercise, etc

These things are quite important. Keep yourself in good health and keep yourself looking good.

Don’t you know that your body is a temple? God wants us to be healthy and look our best to do what we need to do.  Out of the many reasons to take care of ourselves, this should rank as number 1.

We can do better!!!
