Healthy Living: Ways to Stay Healthy This Holiday Season

Written by Lisa Jillanza

It’s the most germiest time of the year! Isn’t that how the song goes? Oh, wonderful, that’s right! Well, it may be the most wonderful time of the year if you and your family can remain healthy throughout the flu and holiday season.

Here are a few ways that you can make your health and safety a priority this year and keep you healthy well into 2022.

  • Wash your hands often to help prevent the spread of germs. Make sure that you are washing them for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Bundle up when you are headed outdoors in the cold. Wear light, warm layers, hat, gloves, and scarf. And waterproof boots, too!
  • Don’t drink and drive or let others drink and drive. This is an all-year deal and not just for the holidays.
  • Be smoke-free. Avoid smoking and second-hand smoke whenever possible. If you are a smoker, consider making that early resolution to quit.
  • Get your yearly exams and screenings. Just because you are busy enjoying the season shouldn’t mean that you should put off those important health appointments.
  • Keep an eye on children. Keep hazardous or potentially hazardous items, foods, drinks, and objects away from children. Protect them from potential accidents.
  • Practice fire safety and know your family plan. Most residential fires occur during the winter months, so be prepared in the event of an emergency.
  • Prepare food safely. Wash hands, avoid cross-contamination, cook foods to the proper temperature and refrigerate foods after eating.

Holidays 101: Handling Holiday Stress

Written by Lisa Jillanza

Thanksgiving may be behind us, but we are still entering the major holiday season… or the major stress season for some. The holidays are stressful for many during a normal year, but couple that with a global pandemic, shipping delays, shortages, and inflation, many people may be finding it hard to cope this year.

So how can you better deal with your holiday stress?

Experts suggest the following:

  • Talk with your family and find out what holiday traditions mean the most to them and focus on those activities and not ALL of the holiday activities.
  • Make a holiday schedule and invite your family members to help you keep on that schedule.
  • Make it a proactive event to find out what worked and what didn’t from year to year.

Written by Lisa Jillanza

More than one third of all adults say that they get less than the recommended seven-to-nine hours of sleep each night. While each person is different in the amount of sleep their body requires, experts say that everyone would be healthy and happier if they just got 60 to 90 more minutes of sleep each night.

But why aren’t you sleeping more? Experts say that there are quite a few reasons and health issues that could be causing you to get less sleep.

Experts also say that even people who get the recommended amount of uninterrupted sleep may be troubled by daytime fatigue and excessive sleepiness because of a variety of conditions that cause sleep problems.

Here are some of those issues that may be causing your sleep problems.

  • Anxiety – sleep problems are just one of the physical symptoms of anxiety disorder.
  • Arthritis – it is common for people with musculoskeletal disorders to have sleep issues.
  • Cancer – studies show about half the people with Cancer experience sleep disturbances, typically insomnia due to tumor pain, nausea, and trouble breathing.
  • Dementia – disturbed sleep may be the earliest sign of dementia.
  • Diabetes – about half the people with type 2 Diabetes experience sleep issues.
  • Epilepsy – about 55% of people with epilepsy also have insomnia.

Written by Lisa Jillanza

Everyone wants to live a healthier lifestyle and get back on the right track when it comes to health and fitness. What if we told you that you can easily get back on the path to a healthier you just by following these 8 tips daily?

There’s no better time than to start right away… so here’s to your health!

  1. Maintain a healthy diet. Eat more complex carbohydrates, lean proteins, and healthy fats. You should also steer clear of sugary and processed foods.
  2. Stay Hydrated. The general rule is to drink half your body weight in ounces of water per day. So, if you weigh 150 pounds then shoot for 75 ounces of water each day.
  3. Give up smoking and limit your alcohol. Experts suggest only one drink per day.
  4. Brush your teeth. This seems like a silly one but brushing your teeth twice a day lowers the risk of heart disease, help your memory, reduces inflammation, and helps maintain sugar levels.
  5. Get enough sleep. Sleeping is always associated with better health, so make sure you are getting the daily recommendations.
  6. Exercise at least 3 to 5 times a week. Working out just 30 minutes a day can help you feel and look your best.
  7. Practice self-care. Self-care can be anything from meditation to massages, pedicures to praying. Whatever it is that helps you get that moment of Zen is what you should do.
  8. Let go of negativity. Negativity can lead to depression, stress, and general unhealthiness. Letting go of negativity can help you maintain a healthier lifestyle.
