Year-Round Wellness at Urgent Care & Walk-In Clinic in Randolph, NJ
At Urgi-Med Family Medical Center, we know that no one really wants to spend time at the doctor’s office. Unfortunately, most people pay a visit to the doctor’s office at least once a year for an illness or minor emergency. Our goal at Urgi-Med is to provide you with efficient and friendly preventive care, so that you can avoid all the illnesses that come around every year.
Here are some medical tips for you, so that you can stay healthy and avoid sick days year-round:
1. Wash Your Hands
While it may seem so simple, washing your hands throughout the day is one of the best ways to avoid picking up germs and bacteria. If you touch elevator buttons, shake someone’s hand or are about to eat, it is always a good idea to take a few minutes and sanitize your hands to avoid spreading germs. Also avoid touching your nose and mouth, and sneeze into your elbow.
2. Eat and Exercise Right
Another simple way to keep you healthy year-round is eating and exercising right. Providing your body with the proper nutrients is a fantastic way to avoid sickness. Keeping a regular exercise routine is also one of the best ways to keep immunity at it’s strongest.
3. Check-in With Your Doctor
While paying a visit to the doctor when you’re sick is never a fun experience, it can easily be avoided by checking in with your doctor at least once a year to address any health issues you may have. For example, discussing your eating and exercise habits and doing a yearly physical are both great ways to avoid future illness later in the year.
4. Avoid Stress
Stress is one of the main factors that let’s our body slip into sickness. Whether it is from work or family, or something completely different in your life, it is a good idea to do activities that reduce your stress levels, and keeps your health at a happy medium.
