“One visit can change your life.”
You schedule yourself a doctor’s visit to the hospital for a routine check up. It has been a while since gong to the hospital. But when you walk in, you sit down, get your name called, then make your way to the examination room, meanwhile, all sorts of thoughts go through your head. Then you meet with a physician and he/she run some test. That’s when you find out you’re at risk for some illness that could worsen if you don’t change your lifestyle. And in that moment, you realize all of your poor dietary habits.
After hearing the news, you sit around waiting for your papers to be drafted up for discharge. And the entire time you’re thinking, “Have I really not been properly taking care of myself?” Then, you think about over the years when you would wake up early in the morning to chips, soda, and pizza from the night before. You think about how you would spend countless nights eating ice cream in front of the television set. Now that you are at risk of something much worse, you realize that a shift must take place.
Those first few months are going to be mentally tough for you because you are shifting your entire lifestyle. But they are also tough because physically you’ll be going through withdrawal periods. Your body is so used to consuming junk over the years, you’ve built up a tolerance. Yet it’s not a tolerance, you’re actually on borrowed time. It’s only a matter of time before your body gives out because of your lifestyle. Now, that doesn’t mean if you eat healthy you’ll always be fine. But the risk are greater with a negative lifestyle.
Above all, you’ll be happy with the results. Not just the external, but internally you’ll feel good, maybe better than any other time in your life. And it’s because that one trip to the doctor’s office which put you at risk for a more serious illness. You initially were on a collision course with an early death, now there is nothing but light ahead.
