DECEMBER 10: MY HEALTH SCREENING EXPERIENCE

When was the last time you had a health MOT (health check)? Though scheduling an appointment for a general check up is undoubtedly less exciting than picking a new shade of top or lipstick, this is something that's far more important and therefore needs to be done. It's terrifying sometimes to realise that I'm sounding more like my mommy these days! A little back story, March 2019, I decided to schedule a health screening from Bluecrest. This post is not sponsored but I like their service so much that I decided to do another screening next year.

I remember the time I did this was the time that I started my intermittent fasting journey. I think I was on day 4 or 5. Nothing fancy, I popped over their Liverpool Street clinic, got my blood extracted, weight checked, had a light do-as-many-reps-as-you-can exercise and that's about it. A week later, I got an email to view my results. I also received a magazine type report with my numbers written and a brief explanation on what this means. It's written using non-gibberish words, meant to be understood by non-medical people like myself. I highly recommend it.

Beyond your weight statistics, I believe it's important to know where are you on your blood cholesterol, liver and kidney function department. Our body is one great interconnected machine. I am the first to admit that I don't take care of it as much as I'd like to but I am trying year after year. Like our planet, we unfortunately don't have a spare body so we need to take care of it as if our life depends on it. Well, it does actually. -CMK
