Happy Fall to all! As we approach the winter months, have you familiarized yourself with the precautions to take and protocols to follow in emergency situations? How about routine wellness steps you should be taking to prevent those emergencies? Not to worry, we’re here to help.
First, be sure to check your daily blood pressure. This simple step can help keep your general health awareness keenly tuned, as a sudden change in BP can be a warning sign for many other medical issues.
Second, have your emergency contact information updated and accessible. In the event of an urgent medical situation, the last thing you (or someone in your household at the time who you’re depending on) will want to do is frantically search for the phone number of your doctor, nurse, or closest family members
Third, consider establishing a formal home medical kit. You can find tips on what to stock yours with here.
Fourth, be sure you are maintaining a nutritious and balanced diet. Overall wellness and health start with the food and drinks that we fuel ourselves with!
And of course, if you have any questions or need support in your journey to home wellness, we are always here to help. Be sure to follow us on Facebook to stay up to date and connected.
