Wellness & Safety During the Winter Holidays
The winter holiday season is a time many
of you celebrate with family gatherings, special foods, and special
activities. While you may enjoy the season, it’s easy to feel too busy
to take care of your health.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers “Holiday Health and Safety Tips” as a reminder of things you can do to try to stay safe and well during the holidays.
Those reminders include simple things
like “wash your hands often” as a way to help avoid illnesses like the
cold and the flu. You may be traveling more during this time of the
year, so remember safety measures like buckling up. When you cook and
serve food, follow safety measures to help avoid food-related illness.
The holidays can be a wonderful time of
year. Practice good habits, and you can help make it a healthy and safe
time of the year too.
