The current COVID19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated that without health nothing can be done. In the time of seemingly abundance and technology, we might want to forget that we are still vulnerable to diseases and tiny little things like viruses and their cohorts.

We might have been threatened enough to keep our focus solely on a pandemic and forget that personal health matter too. The truth is our personal health determines we respond and react to any public health threats. Health is personal. The government might subsidize health care and provide access to the best of healthcare services, the responsibility to utilize and not to abuse such privilege still lies with the individual.

The good thing about the COVID19 pandemic is that it helped us refocus on how we should take personal responsibility of our health. The not so good part is that most of us don't know where to start. But we have the good benefits of wellness and science that have shed so much light on the mystery of life, living, and wellness. Luckily, there has been an army of well trained, knowledgeable and passionate group of trainers and teachers in the field of healthcare called health coaches. The only thing we need to do is to invest in our personal health.
