Life is hectic enough as-is. Throwing one or more long-term illnesses into the mix only adds to the to-do lists, schedules, reminders, and daily tasks. However, if you want to truly be an ambassador for your own health, getting and staying organized is an important part of the process. The good news is, there are things you can do so stay in control and on task, such as keeping a medical portfolio, staying on top of your labs and diagnostics, and maintaining a healthcare and wellness calendar.
Although getting organized may require some extra work on the front end, and staying organized demands discipline, you’ll likely find that by taking a few steps to create a system to manage and track all aspects of your health care, you’ll feel more in control. Having a sense of control over one’s health may boost resilience and a sense of confidence…important aspects of the healing process.
