Archdale Health Insurance Agent Shares 3 Tips for Staying Well This Holiday Season, Archdale, North Carolina

Winter might not have hit North Carolina yet, but the weather has cooled, and your family is probably already spending a lot more time indoors. Spending more time in close quarters makes it much easier for germs to spread, which is why a lot of people tend to get sick this time of year. The holidays are especially notorious for cold and flu viruses to spread because they cause excessive stress, which has a direct effect on the immune system. Even if you have comprehensive health insurance, falling ill can cost your family in lost wages and even force you to cancel holiday plans. Below, the friendly team at Farm Bureau of Archdale-Campbell Agency in Guilford County shares a few tips for staying well this winter.

How to Stay Healthy for the Holidays

1. Get Plenty of Sleep

There are a lot of factors that can affect how well the immune system functions, and sleep deprivation is one of them. A lack of adequate sleep not only makes you more susceptible to illness, but it also makes it much harder for your body to recover if you do become sick. Try to prioritize sleep over the holidays, so your immune system functions at full capacity. 

2. Encourage the Whole Family to Exercise

You don’t have to go to the gym across town to reap the benefits, though. Encourage the whole family to take a brisk, 30-minute walk after dinner. You can spend some quality time together away from digital screens and get in your exercise at the same time.  

3. Wash Your Hands

You can reduce the risk of illness and prevent the spread of germs by washing your hands frequently. For example, you should always wash your hands after returning home from running errands, as well as before preparing or eating food.

If you do end up falling ill over the holidays, you deserve quality care from an experienced physician in your area. If there is a doctor you’d like to see, but the office is not currently in your health insurance network, turn to Farm Bureau of Archdale-Campbell Agency in Guilford County, NC, to explore other coverage options. You can learn more about the various health insurance plans they offer by visiting their website. Call (336) 434-6550 to speak with an agent about your needs today.
