New Year, New Wellness Exam

The Importance of Periodic Wellness Exams

It’s that time of year again: New Year, new you. A lot of people use the start of a new year as an opportunity to make resolutions and set goals for themselves. This often includes improving their health in one way or another. If you’re looking to get ahead of your health game this year, making your physical appointment in January is a great way to do it!

Starting The Year Off Strong

Assessing your health and body is a great way to prevent or diagnose any potential health issues in the new year. During your appointment, your provider will assess your overall health and check your vital signs. They may also perform lab tests if necessary. Your provider can answer questions you have about your current health status, as well as discuss any lifestyle changes that could improve it. Making your periodic wellness exam in January can help you stay on track and ensure that you don’t miss out on any important checkups in the new year.

A Post-Holiday Check-In

Furthermore, making your appointment in January gives you the opportunity to speak to your provider about how you may be feeling after the holiday season. With all the stress of shopping, traveling, and hosting family, the post-holiday slump can be hard to shake. Your provider may have some advice on ways to get back into a healthy routine and help you kickstart your health goals for the New Year — whether your goals involve weight loss, a commitment to improving your mental health, or a change in diet!

Taking Control Of Your Health

At the end of the day, your physical health is in your hands. Making your periodic wellness appointment in January is a great way to take control of your health and get the new year off to a fresh and healthy start. Schedule an appointment with our team at St. John's Health today, and you’ll be on your way to better health in no time!
