Use it or Lose it!

How often do you thing you have heard this statement over your life time? 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, 1000....?????

So have you been following this simple advise?

Do you use your God given talents? Do you apply yourself in all aspects of your life?

At work, at school do you just get by with as little as possible? Or do you apply yourself to your fullest penitential? If you don't give 100% percent what may happen. You may lose your job to the other person who is Using It! At school you may not get that A, maybe you get a C instead, then you loose out on on that scholarship, that leads to the better college that leads to the better paying job.

Do you use your body the way it was made to be used? Do you have a job that you sit all day, that you stand in one place all day, that you do not move? Do you sit in school all day, never get out and move, take no gym class. Then do you go home and sit in front of the computer, the TV, sit on the couch and text your friends. If so you are loosing more then you know!

I Thought It Would Go Away!!

"I thought it would go away...." Funny how I hear this in the office more and more the last few years. Why is it that people tend to think this? As I ponder this I see many trends in health care that have taken a turn for the worst the last few years. The main thing I see is that people have only so much money to go around. They have to pay for the house, the car, the groceries, cloths, utilities, the kids activities, the.... could go on and on.
In years past most people had insurance coverage that meant something. They paid for insurance or had some type of insurance that they got threw work. The coverage was"good". What this meant is the deductibles were low. So when some thing came up and you went to the doctor you only had to pay say $250, $500, or $1500 for out of pocket care before your insurance would kick in. Then you would run to the doctor instead of saying "I thought it would go away...."

So that leads us to what is going on today. I see people who have deductibles of $2500, $5000, $10,000 or higher. So now when something comes up people say "It will go Away!"

What is wrong with this type of thinking? Well it tends not to GO AWAY!! Then you end up in the office and you tell me "I thought it would go away...." And now you have a problem that does not go away very fast. It takes longer, it takes more money, and more damage has been done to your over all health.

So that really leads to more health care costs and it cost you more money then before to maintain were your health is. Some times permanent damage has been done and you can not recover.

So next time you think "it will go away..." reflect on this and question it. Will it go away?
Will it cost more if I wait? Will I be doing more harm than good? Who should I call to see?
