2. GET REGULAR CHECK UPS
Doctors exist not only for times when we are in trouble; they are also able to help us prevent a whole bunch of illnesses. Have regular check ups with your doctor and if advised, consult a specialist. Women should have regular mammograms and pap smears. People over 50 should perhaps have their colons checked. Get your teeth X-rayed by your dentist every few years to see that all is well. Check your heart, and your blood pressure. These are all good ways to look after your health.
