When last did you go see your primary care doctor outside of being sick? Or needing a refill on your medication?
Say you have anew car... nice, right? How often would you take it for a check up?
I bet more than once a year and ...even when it drives well. You wouldn’t want it to go bad so you do all you can PREVENTIVELY to make sure it is good for a long time.
Well, you are worth incomparably more than the most expensive cars...
So schedule one once a year.
You can schedule it around your birthday/birth month so that way you remember it as part of your birthday celebration week or month.
Remember your insurance (most of them) covers the expense once a year.
Yes! Even during the covid pandemic you can also schedule a Virtual physical!
So here’s to you! Living life proactively!
