The older the kids get, the busier I get. Now, I’m not complaining about that but I am complaining that there aren’t enough hours in the day. And if I’m honest about it, I don’t even have time to get sick. I go and go and go until my get up is gone and I just can’t go anymore. I’m always so busy taking care of others, that I often have to remind myself that I need to take care of me too. Until this past week when I didn’t have any other choice but to rest until I felt better. Then I had a reaction to a shot and well, let me just say, I made a vow to myself that I would do better at taking care of my health. Because technology is a big part of my life, I started by seeing what apps my Samsung Phone has that could help me in that area.
After scanning through different apps, I found the perfect one. I didn’t even realize that all Samsung phones have a Samsung Health app. I blame my lack of knowledge about my new phone, on lack of time. All this time I’ve been missing out on ways that Samsung Health tracks my activities, nutrition and sleep, and delivers insights based on my progress. This app really does help keep me motivated.
One of the best features Samsung Health has is it allows busy parents like me (and you) to see a doctor online via our Samsung devices. It only takes minutes to see a board-certified doctor and we don’t even have to wait for an appointment. How convenient is that? It doesn’t matter what hours you work because they are available 24/7. Online doctor consultations are covered by many top health plans. You can even get a prescription if needed, sent to your local pharmacy. New news is as of this month, Samsung Health will be launching specialty services such as nutrition and therapy services, by appointment.
Common Conditions treated with Urgent Care
Cold/upper respiratory infection
UTI (Urinary Tract Infection)
Stomach Infection (Gastroenteritis)
Hypertension/high blood pressure
For me, sinus infections are always a problem. You may have ongoing issues like mine or you may not. However, even if you aren’t sick right now, with flu season on our heels, it’s great to know how to prevent getting the flu. You can ask an expert about tips on preventive measures you can start taking now.
