As a young person, you’ve probably not got ‘looking after your health’ at the forefront of your mind – but just like your car insurance, regular services, and MOT’s – your own personal health should get a little TLC every now and then too.
How do you look after your health?
Breaking news: Ignoring your medical problem won’t make it go away! I know… we were shocked too.
It’s tempting to avoid visiting the dentist and optician regularly – not just because of the pain that comes with removing a tooth, but also the cost! Unlike other health care, these don’t come free which means many young people just assume they’re invincible or ignore the problem and hope it goes away.
Unfortunately, not keeping on top of routine health appointments, and not getting health issues checked out early, could spell bigger problems later on (which could have been avoided!)

Don’t trust Dr. Search Engine
We’ve all been there – one small health problem, you look online, and next thing you know you’ve self-diagnosed yourself with something terrible! Instead of hitting up Google with all your symptoms – Simplyhealth offer a 24/7 GP telephone service for their customers – meaning you can get real health advice from professionals, so you don’t have to worry about the unlikely diagnoses you’ve been given from the random website online.
If you’re a driver – this is key!
Just like any part of your general health, your eye health can change over time and if you’re a driver, it’s essential to keep on top of. When you take your driving test, you have to prove you can read a number plate from 20 metres away – with good reason. If your eye sight starts to deteriorate, you may need glasses when you’re behind the wheel. Ensure you keep yourself and others safe with regular eye checks.
