Healthy Holiday Season



Are you heading home this holiday season?


The holidays are a great time of year to visit family and friends. Much like yourself, millions of people across the globe will take flights to visit loved ones and spread holiday cheer. Unfortunately, these activities can also increase the spread of germs that cause illness. Be sure to cover your mouth and wash your hands.


Staying healthy this holiday also means dressing warm and staying dry, because cold temperatures can cause serious health problems.


In addition, the holidays can be stressful and take a toll on your mental health. You can manage your stress by maintaining a healthy work-life balance and also keeping commitments and holiday spending in check.


This season, whether you’re traveling across town or around the world, help ensure your trip is safe. Don’t drink and drive, and don’t let someone else drink and drive.

Click to learn more simple steps you can take to improve your chances of staying healthy while on-the-go this season:
