Lessons I Learned from Grey’s Anatomy

Season 12 of Grey’s Anatomy is now on Netflix.


Know what that means?




Every girl from high school to the mothers of said girls will be glued to the screen until the entire season is binged watched, or until the half-gallon of strawberry ice cream they are undoubtedly sharing is demolished.


Or both.


Most likely both.


Personally I have fallen victim to this phenomenon myself, as my fiancé really seems to enjoy this show.


I won’t go into how much I dislike the show as I feel that will make it seem like I secretly enjoy watching it.


But I do admit that I have seen a few with my better half and I have learned a few things from it outside of the vast array of medical terminology, and I have listed it below.


  1. There are sooooo many physical ailments that can go wrong with us.


I can be a bit of a hypochondriac so this one is a bit disturbing.


However, most of them are preventable, provided we maintain our health as much as we can.




  1. I hate drama. I really do.


Hated it in high school.


Hate it now.


Probably will hate it tomorrow.


And oh, by the way,… do people actually act like this in hospitals?? If so I don’t want to know. I’d rather not know if these people are the ones responsible for my health.


  1. We can take a lot more precautions than we do in order to maintain the best health we possibly can.


This is the one that will cause the most argument.


However, many humans suffer from VERY preventable diseases. Things like diabetes, tobacco related illness, obesity. The list goes on.


Easy solution: Drop the twinkies, stop puffing on the cigs and add lean meats and veggies. Do a couple push-ups. It really is that simple.


  1. We are vastly uneducated about how, exactly to take care of ourselves.


This is all too evident if you stay up past 10 p.m. and watch the infomercials.


Too many ‘lose weight fast’ pills, abdominal ‘belly blasters’ and excessive treadmill-like configurations; half of which probably don’t get used any more than a week or two before it goes to storage forever.


We have doctors to help us when thing do in fact go wrong, however they need help.


There is no such thing as a miracle pill or miracle procedure that will fix all of our problems.


Most of the things they are able to do, unless it is some kind of infection, is merely help relieve our symptoms.


Im not saying that we don’t need doctors. We do.


And they have an incredible amount of knowledge in their field that we need in society.


However, in my field, I try to help keep people from eventually needing to see the doctor (along with turning them into super humans).

Don’t want to look up?


Fine, Ill list them below.


Eat lean meat and veggies. Move more. Boom. Fitness.


Hope this helps.
