The busy season is here! There are only 3 months left in the year which usually means a lot of traveling and holiday parties for everyone. This month’s blog is dedicated to helping you stay healthy during the holidays. See below for some tips to help.
As you also plan for the New Year, don’t forget that Unger Primary Care is here for you. We offer concierge medicine – a relationship with your doctor that extends beyond the narrow definition of common coverage. As a patient of Unger Primary Care, you can depend on 24/7 access to Dr. Unger, telemedicine, coordination with your specialists, exclusive courses of treatment, and much more. You can expect to be considered and treated like a member of our family.
Self-Care – It’s very easy to get caught up in all the to-do’s that the holiday season brings. The kids are out of school and your list of things that have to get done is never-ending. Don’t forget to care for you. Make sure you are getting enough sleep and making time to do things that you love.
Eating Habits – Don’t throw out all your healthy eating habits out the window for all those holiday treats. Make sure you find a balance between enjoying a special treat and making sure you are feeding good things for your body. In the end, a balanced diet will make you feel good.
Stay Hydrated – It’s easy to want sugary drinks when it comes to the holidays. Try and stay no of the extra soda and remember to drink plenty of water. Not only does your body need water, but it helps you with energy and brain function. Drinking water also helps with weight loss.
Stay Active – It tends to be a little more difficult to get your workout in with people in town and with the kids on vacation, but don’t let that stop you. Keep a gym bag in your car in case you find some time to take a walk during your work break or if you can stop at your local gym. If you’re traveling, consider seeing if the hotel you are staying at as a free gym you can use. Exercising during the holidays might take a little extra planning, but it’s worth it!
