2020 has brought upon us changes to our day to day life. With over 246,000 deaths and many more suffering from coronavirus, Thanksgiving has made us more aware than ever of the gift of good health.
Maintaining your health through working out and eating well are essential. With the number of cases rising, continuing to stick with good habits is important. The World Health Organization recommends being active for at least 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise and at least 75 minutes of vigorous activity for adults over 18. If you are unsure of what to do, Healthline has compiled 30 exercise moves to incorporate into your work out. The American Society of Nutrition has information about saying fit and healthy during a pandemic.
Eating healthy can be difficult, especially during times of stress and throughout the holidays. The World Health Organization has compiled healthy eating tips. Some of their recommendations include limiting salt and sugar intake as well as eating fats and oils in moderation. Drinking water is also essential to maintaining health. This CDC article includes the benefits of water and tips to drink more water. Additionally, limiting alcohol consumption is important.
Consider many factors including local COVID transmission and limiting attendance for Thanksgiving. Think about having a virtual Thanksgiving over virtual meetings or outside. To continue staying safe, make sure to continue following CDC recommendations if meeting in person this Thanksgiving. If getting together with friends or family, make sure to constantly adhere to guidelines before gathering with others. Encourage mask wearing, staying 6 feet apart, and handwashing at the event.
In addition to our health, we, at Cold FAid, are grateful to be a part of such a caring team devoted to keeping others helpful. We are also thankful for all the support from our customers! From our family to yours, we wish you a happy and safe Thanksgiving!
