"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" Benjamen Franklin
I am passionate about prevention. It just makes so much sense to prevent pain and heart ache when you can. I try not to live life as a victim in any aspect. I know many hard working people who take their responsibility to work and provide financially very seriously but completely ignore their responsibility to protect their health.
Unfortunately, in this day and age, health responsibility is not optional. Those who choose not to prevent, choose to suffer. I do not want anyone to suffer. I have figured out that a consistent morning routine makes prevention easy.
Not everyone is a morning person and you do not have to be. The simple fact that most of us plan a time to wake up and have a time to be somewhere in the morning makes a routine possible. Utilize this "regularly planned" time to incorporate health prevention. It will allow your mornings to become like putting on a seat belt, most of us do not even think about it anymore; it is habit. Whether you wake up at 4:30am or 9:30am, begin to include brushing your teeth, floss, any preventative medicines your doctor prescribes, 20-30 minutes of exercise, and put sunscreen on your face!
In that morning routine, you possibly prevented infection, cavities, heart attack, stroke, obesity, and skin cancer. All and all it took you 40 minutes if you exercised, if not 5-10 minutes. It is inexpensive and can become habit. With a good preventative morning routine, you will protect yourself from disease and have more time to enjoy your life and less time at your doctor's office!
Do not put off your colonoscopy, mammogram, vaccines, and other preventative health tools.
