May is Women's Health Month, and the advocacy campaign raises awareness on taking control of your health. Going for a check-up, having a scan or just visiting the doctor is something that many of us put off or try to put at the back of our mind.
We all lead busy lives, and often it is hard to schedule an appointment at a time that works for you. I've been there, and I always feel much happier when I've made the effort and gone along to see the doctor.
It's important to keep on top of the little things. Need immunizations? Make an appointment to get them done. Blood test? Don't chicken out. Screening? Take the time.
The handy infographic from Oscar Insurance provides you with further details on what you should be thinking about at the different stages of your life. Similarly, follow the advice of your elders and eat healthily, exercise and take a break from what you're working on. These small changes can make a big difference in the long run!
