As We Get Older… We Need To Start Listening To The Most Important Person In Our Lives…

As I get older there is a need to change and to change quickly. I really need to put this at the top of my priority list. What do I need to change you ask? I need to listen to my body! If I have a lingering ache or pain I need to do something about it by either stop playing a sport, get treatment or get this…go see a doctor! Ok, I said it. Like most, I don’t like seeing doctors and frankly, it is very easy to put off a visit. Recently, I had an injury that I kept telling myself was nothing. Week after week, month after month I kept saying “It isn’t anything. It’s no big deal. It will go away.” Well, I didn’t. Finally, after I heard from a friend who was sick, I saw a doctor. The first doctor thought I had a sports hernia and the second one wasn’t sure what it was. They sent me to a surgeon who believes it is probably a tear that needs to be addressed.

The reason I am sharing this isn’t for any sympathy at all. It is for one reason only – I want to make the point that as we get older we need to really listen to our body and NOT tune it out! It is very easy to get caught up in life and forget to take care of yourself.

So, I ask you…

  • Do you listen to your body?
  • The next time you aren’t feeling well or have a nagging injury, what are you going to do about it?

I truly hope you do the opposite of what I did.

I look forward to hearing from you.
