Life is busy and there never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything completed. When time is at a premium, it’s an unfortunate truth that the first things busy people abandon are the things that keep them healthy. When you’re used to putting work, personal and social demands ahead of your own needs, skipping an annual physical here and there can feel like no big deal.

The truth of the matter is that annual physicals are where so many major health problems are discovered and diagnosed. For some diagnoses, time is of the essence, too. Your health matters, and keeping up with it is essential.

Keeping Your Annual Physical Appointments Even When You’re Feeling Well

Scheduling an annual physical is as easy as contacting your doctor; keeping the appointment, however, is a horse of a different color. By the time your annual wellness check date rolls around, it can be hard to clear the decks to focus on yourself. This is especially true when you have no health complaints to speak of and are feeling healthy. Still, there are many conditions with the potential to do very real damage to your health, which initially present as asymptomatic.

When you’re feeling fit as a fiddle walking into your appointment, it can also feel like a waste of medical resources during this time of intense focus on healthcare worker burnout. Actually, keeping your well exam appointments can help your healthcare providers stay on top of problems before they become sprawling, resource-demanding crises.

Getting Ready for Your Annual Exam

Most of the time, when you make an appointment to see a healthcare provider, you have a specific concern or complaint in mind to discuss. Well exams are different; you’re there because you want to continue to be well. These annual physicals are just a status update on your overall health, and a great time to bring up questions or concerns you might otherwise forget. If you do have chronic health conditions, your well exam gives your healthcare team a baseline report to work from in addition to your specialist’s reports or charts.

If you’re ready to take charge of your health and stay on top of new wellness habits, your annual physical is essential. Call or contact Rapid Immediate Care today to schedule your wellness exam.
