This past Friday I got a general physical for the first time in many years. (Usually I just find a doctor when I have a specific complaint.) The doctor told me that I have hypertension and wanted to put me on blood pressure meds. I asked him if there was another way and he said he didn’t agree with not going onto meds but he did relent and gave me a one month diet/exercise/supplement plan and said that he wouldn’t agree to no meds unless I promised to follow the plan strictly. If my numbers don’t look better at the end of the month I agreed to start the meds.

Given this background, I started thinking about doing things we know we should be doing but don’t. I know I should have been living healthier for a while but haven’t taken time and steps to make it happen. Now I will do it, but I wonder why we things have to get so bad until we take action. Maybe it doesn’t work this way for everyone…
