It can happen to all of us: We forget to care for ourselves because we are so busy caring for those around us. But investing in your own well-being—by preparing a healthy meal or visiting a friend you haven’t seen for a while—can help you take even better care of your loved ones.
Part of practicing good self-care can mean having a regular check-up with your health care provider. This gives you the chance to discuss any health concerns you might have and find out how your health is overall. A regular check-up, often called a physical exam, might include tests or screenings to monitor your health, such as a cholesterol test.
If you have children or teens, their physical exam can be a good opportunity to ensure they are current on their vaccines. If you are a caregiver for a loved one, remember that certain vaccines may be recommended for older adults. No matter your age, you might want to discuss the flu shot with your health care provider.
So, to stay focused on your well-being, check to see when the flu shot becomes available in your area.
