Are you taking care of your health?

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 
 

Dear Friends,
You are a busy lady. Most of you reading this are homeschool moms. You have a lot on your plate. Are you taking time to take care of your health?
We need to be aware of our health – the good and the not so good. The way to determine if we have a health issue usually means we need to make an appointment with a care provider and have some blood work done.
What are some important appointments? A well visit annually and blood work. This is how I originally found out that I had an issue with my thyroid. During this time, I also found out that I had low vitamin D levels and low potassium. These conditions are important to treat, and my care provider keeps and eye on these numbers regularly.
Even if you feel good, a blood panel can help pinpoint issues before they become bigger issues.
Regular dental care can also help you pinpoint other issues with your overall health and your dental health. Many people do not see a dentist regularly for a variety of reasons from money or lack of insurance to fear of seeing the dentist.
I encourage you to look for a dentist you like and have your regular visits. If you are having an issue, don’t keep putting off an appointment.
As we age, certain screenings are recommended. This is between you and your care provider. Research and read about these procedures and make an informed decision on whether or not you want to have the screenings.
As an infant I was adopted, and I have no medical history. I use a proactive approach to my health care. I also do what I can to take care of myself through eating healthy, drinking water, exercising, and resting. I also do certain screenings at different points in my life to give myself and the doctor more information about my health.
Are you taking care of your health and making needed appointments?
Your Home Blessing for today is to dust and vacuum.
Your Zone Mission for today is to wipe down the fronts of your kitchen cabinets.
My menu plan for Tuesday is spaghetti. Veggies and salad for me.
Have a blessed day!
