Self-care and wellness are gifts for the holidays

The toll taken by COVID-19 has awakened us to the idea that health and wellness must stay atop our holiday wish lists. That’s why I’m encouraging all readers — especially women — to give the gift that keeps giving: by committing to a thorough physical checkup to start the New Year.

It is just as important for men to make wellness a priority with regular exams — but women are the heartbeat of many households, and must address their physical health with conscious intention. Even when they are feeling fine.

Skipping doctor’s appointments is a game of Russian roulette that you can’t afford. Stress is an underestimated but nonetheless debilitating health condition that can serve as a springboard to other diseases. The good news is that a blood test can bring clarity to how stress levels are affecting your health — even in hidden ways. Blood tests can also give you a reading on hormones that may be causing conditions that you are facing, such as hair loss, weight gain, mood swings, pain and more.

Let’s give ourselves the gift of wellness by scheduling and keeping health checkups.
