In our efforts to utilize personal development programs to improve ourselves intellectually, morally, emotionally, and spiritually, we can lose sight of the need to take care of our physical health; this can lead to ignorance about our health that could be catastrophic.

Many of us may find it worrisome to get an annual physical with our doctor, but a yearly check-up might uncover a treatable condition, which, left untreated, could become a very serious health problem.

We each probably make an effort to do all the “right” things about our health; proper diet, cutting down or quitting smoking, watching alcohol intake, getting exercise.

But not getting an annual medical check-up could interfere with the positives of such health efforts.

Many medical conditions, particularly in their early stages, can be virtually free of perceptible symptoms, such as high blood pressure and higher than normal blood sugar, but nevertheless need to be treated medically.

Actions steps are a key component of successful self-improvement and self-actualization.

A good action step to take right now is to make an appointment for a physical check-up.

And overall, on an ongoing basis, to make our physical health an integral part of our personal growth goals.
