Staying Healthy During the Holidays

We all know that this year has been a wild one. Between the pandemic and the recent Presidential election, it has become a priority to make sure we are healthy, and that our loved ones are practicing social distancing and protecting themselves. When it comes down to the holiday season, this year will look a little different. In this blog, we are going to go over some basic tips for staying healthy this holiday season.

1. Wear a Mask

Yes, you need to wear a mask! If you are planning to visit your loved ones this holiday season, you need to make sure you are protecting them from COVID-19 by wearing a mask. If you are eating a meal, you can remove your mask, however when you are not eating, you should wear a mask. Another way to protect others and yourself from spreading the virus is to social distance, remaining at least six feet away from others. This way, you are reducing the chance of spreading the virus.

2. Ramp Up Your Immune System

You need to make sure that you are eating healthy year-round, however, it does not hurt to start now. As the holidays approach quickly, try adding in more nutrient-dense foods, such as spinach, broccoli, nuts, and fruits. Not only will you increase your vitamin intake, but you will also increase your immunity to germs. Cooking healthy dishes and making conscious health decisions is a great way to improve your overall health, and your guests', too!

3. Set Up Sanitation Stations

Reduce the spread of germs by stocking up on hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes. By creating little sanitation stations around the house, your guests will feel encouraged to frequently disinfect their hands and surfaces nearby. On your sanitation station, include a bottle of hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, and extra masks for guests that may choose to wear one. Bathrooms are recommended to have hand soap and paper towels to avoid reusing the same towel for each guest. If you do not plan to have guests over, there is always an option of having a virtual get together this year!

As you can see, the holidays this year are going to be a little different. However, it is in your best interest to do what you can to stay healthy and maintain a positive outlook on the holidays this year. Your personal health and your family's health are the priority. Do what you can to ensure this year is the best it can be in the circumstances we are facing as a result of the pandemic.
