Dec. 12: Take your meds

I have a friend who finds the low light of winter debilitating. She reminds herself to start taking vitamin D at the beginning of November. I have another friend who takes medication for their ADHD. They have reminders too.

People take medication for all kinds of reasons and sometimes we forget. Sometimes it’s stress that can throw you off your schedule, no matter how well you manage your meds already. Whether you take a supplement to deal with Seasonal Affective Disorder or a prescription to manage your anxiety, maintaining your schedule with meds can make the difference between a good day and a not-so-good day.

Taking your meds is key to your overall well-being. if you aren’t feeling like your usual self, check to see you if you have missed a dose. Don’t be hard on yourself for forgetting; just take them when you remember, and do yourself the kindness of creating a reminder system. Be well, stay well.
