The shiniest, juiciest looking apple always seems to be on the tallest branch.
At least, that’s what I remember from going apple picking with my kids a few years back. Every year, we’d visit a local orchard, bring a big canvas bag, and while away our afternoon searching for the best, brightest, reddest apple. And take a few bites along the way, of course.
Eventually, we’d turn the apples into picnic lunches or pies or snacks with peanut butter.
Reflecting back on it, it was not only a fun family activity, but an exercise in good health.
Apples are of course healthy and filling. And it takes flexibility and strength to stretch, reach, stoop, and pick up children to help them reach the best apple. You need energy to help each kid in turn, be “on” through the afternoon, and get home to still continue the day with dinner and more family time.
Your body has to have muscle and stamina to lug the bag of apples up and down the rows.
A healthy body to do all those things is so important – in our own lives, if we have children, and when we’re with friends and family. A lack of nutrition, treatment for a medical issue, or regular checks to keep problems at bay can all impact our ability to spend healthy, energetic time doing what we want to do.
A regular checkup can ensure your health is what it should be, help you put together a plan to get where you want to be, and catch any problems before they become major.
