Time to Re-Tread

I find it odd that we take better care of our cars than we do our bodies.  Oil changes every 3,000-6,000 miles, tune-ups at 50,000 miles etc.   It is all spelled out in the owner manual or the technician at the dealership sends you a reminder card to bring your car in and like lemmings we follow suit and off we go to take care of our car.

Maybe we don’t get the reminder cards from the emergency room telling us to eat right, stop smoking or to manage the things that go into and onto our bodies so we do nothing.

If the car tech tells us our tires are dangerously low on tread and going bald then we magically get new tires installed so that we don’t have an accident on wet or icy roads.  If our doctors tells us to reduce taking in fast food and cholesterol, we skip it that day but the next time when in a hurry we go right back to that food chain.

These events of taking care of ourselves is not limited to food intake.  We also need to take time to de-stress.  Maybe call it vacation or holiday or simply time away from the daily events. 

This week if you have not scheduled your annual physical with your doctor – DO IT! 

If you have not scheduled a few days away from the office – DO IT!

Yes the work will still be there but if you don’t start to manage “YOU” then you won’t be there to do it.

So taking my own advise, I’m out of here for a few days and yes, my annual physical was already done.

If you don’t take care of “You” then there may not be anyone ready to take care of your business in the future.
