Storm season is upon us. With storms come unpredictable circumstances like rain, lots of rain, sideways rain, hail, tornadoes, extremely windy conditions, and of course, flooding. What I’ve learned in Kansas is that folks do a good job trying to prepare for these, and protect their families and neighbors, but sometimes things happen above and beyond our control.

As I pondered this last night in the midst of severe thunderstorms and tornado outbreaks in our region, I thought about how similar life is when it comes to our health. It is equally important to plan and prepare for a healthy life, hoping that all your efforts are fruitful should a “storm” of health issues happen. So often we go to the doctor only when we aren’t feeling well or have a health concern. And we all know folks who brag about how long it’s been since they last stepped into a clinic.

The reality is, regular check-ups and health screenings could help minimize the storm of a sudden major illness. Mom always said an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Early detection of chronic illnesses can save and maybe even extend your life. Plus, it is far more economical to have regular visits. Think of it like changing the oil in the car. Is it more economical to change the oil every 5,000 miles, or replace the engine every 30,000 miles because you never change the oil?

Don’t wait for the storms to be upon you this spring and summer before you start planning what you’ll need and do. Likewise, don’t wait until your health turns into a storm before you start planning what you’ll need and do. See your provider on a regular basis. Let them get to know you. There are a lot of people who love and care about you that are counting on you. Be prepared, be safe.

Sincerely,
 
Jimmie Hansel, PhD, CEO
