8 Health Tips for a Safe and Healthy Holiday

8 CDC Health Tips for a Safe and Healthy Holiday

1. Eat Healthy and Be Active

It may be tempting to spend all day watching Christmas movies on Netflix, but try to make sure you have balance! It's important to stay active, even on those cold weather days.

2. Food Safety

Avoid cross-contamination! A lot of helping hands in the kitchen means things can go unnoticed.  If you're cooking for a holiday get-together, be aware of who was exposed to the food and when.

3. Handwashing

You've heard it this year more than ever before... Wash and sanitize those hands! Make sure the sanitizer you're using is an effective one.

4. Cold Weather Safety and Home Heating

So many fires are started by a neglected space heater. Keep your family safe in both cold and hot situations this holiday season. As the weather changes, make sure your clothing choices change with it.

5. Cope with Stress

It's been a stressful year, and the holidays traditionally pile on even more stress. Make sure to manage it well by making safe and smart choices for your family holiday hang-outs.

6. Travel Safety

If you are traveling, follow all the CDC guidelines for you and your family. And when you're on the road, be vigilant. The holidays are notorious for drivers under the influence.

7. Prevent Injuries

Don't rush to throw up those holiday lights! Be safe when using ladders, equipment, and when these items are around your children.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
