Healthy Living Tips of the Week


Temperature check

Drink water - you can become dehydrated in cold weather if you don't replace fluids. Dehydration reduces blood flow to the skin, which can lead to injury and increase the risk of frostbite.

 

Exercise! It increases the body’s built-in, anti-anxiety hormones and releases pleasure-producing endorphins, helping you feel calmer.

 

Wash hands often to help prevent the possibility of spreading germs and getting sick. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water for at least 20 seconds.

 

Reduce sedentary time.In addition to encouraging physical activity, help children avoid too much sedentary time. Although quiet time for reading and homework is fine, limit the time your children watch television, play video games, or surf the web to no more than 2 hours per day.

 

Prepare for the day you plan to quit smoking. Think about your environment and what you need to change. Get rid of all tobacco products (and other items such as ashtrays) in your home, car, and where you work.
