How to Stay Healthy Around the Holidays

November 1, 2019

The end of the year is quickly approaching. This is a joyous time filled with holiday celebrations and end of the year parties, but it’s also when people stress, overindulge and healthy practices take a back seat.

Below are several ways to survive the holiday season while still maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Hydrate:

Dry air, as we often see here in Arizona, dries out the mucous membranes in your body, which, in turn, allows bugs into our systems. Also, travelling via airplane, puts us at risk for getting ill as the inside of airplane cabins provides for low humidity at high altitudes.

Hydrating also regulates your body temperature, lubricates your joints, and allows for transportation of nutrients.

Stay active:

Exercise is just as important during the holiday as it is during the rest of the year. Try to do something physically active 4-5 times a week. This will also allow the body to burn calories as our caloric intake increases. Find creative ways to incorporate physical activity, and even better, including friends and family as well.

Get sleep:

People have a tendency to wear themselves out during the holiday season. Not getting a good night’s sleep, puts one at risk for getting ill because you’ve worn down your immune system.

Practice healthy nutrition:

Eating healthy can be very challenging with the abundance of cookies and cakes and various other sweets everywhere we look. My advice is to eat junk food in moderation and make sure to incorporate the “good” foods including fruits, vegetables, protein and fiber, that allow your body function optimally.

Alcohol:

Know Stress Points:

Stress is something that is unavoidable. Know your stress points then find ways of dealing with them. Deal with them by incorporating breaks when you’re in stressful situations. Also, do something you enjoy before and/or after dealing with stressful situations.

Relaxation:

Relaxation is key during the holidays since so much of the holiday season is the opposite of relaxing. Find time to sit on the couch and read your favorite book or watch TV. This will balance out all of the busy activity.

Get Rid of the Germs:

Washing your hands before and after eating, after using the restroom, and other times during the day, can help minimize transferring germs from someone or something to you. The holiday season is when colds and flu bugs are at their peak. Using hand sanitizer throughout the day is also helpful, but don’t use it as a complete substitute for handwashing. Hands should still be washed several times per day. Following the previously mentioned pointers will help improve your ability to stay healthy during the holiday season so you can focus on enjoying the celebratory time, while still incorporating healthy behaviors.

The goal of physical therapy is to help you recover from an acute or chronic injury, improve your overall wellness, and reach your physical therapy goals while optimizing your outcome.

Mobile physical therapy involves a licensed doctor of physical therapy providing physical therapy treatment and rehabilitation services in the comfort of your own home or wherever you may need it.

The advantages of mobile physical therapy include individualized evaluation and treatment, direct access to a licensed specialist, the ability to enable recovery and deliver rehabilitation services in the comfort of your own home, and the convenience of not having to travel to an outpatient or traditional clinic.

Each person's situation is unique, so consult with a healthcare professional to discuss individual needs and determine whether mobile physical therapy is appropriate.

es, mobile physical therapists can work with seniors on a range of conditions, including arthritis, Parkinson's disease, recovery from injuries, or surgeries like hip and knee replacements.

Mobile physical therapy sessions generally include an initial assessment, creation of personalized treatment plans, and implementation of targeted exercises and interventions. These at-home sessions can also involve guidance on mobility aids and adaptive strategies.

e are not contracted with any insurance companies, including Medicare.

An insurance-accepting physical therapy clinic typically schedules at least two to four patients per hour. A majority of the time is spent on passive modalities while patients are guided through exercises by trained assistants.

ReThrive provides one-on-one care without the constraints of health insurance. As a result, we can maximize our time with the patient, without being restricted to focusing on one body part alone. With a full hour of one-on-one time, improvements can be made more quickly.

In comparison to standard private practice clinical treatment sessions, this allows for a more intensive treatment session. Recovery is often quicker as a result.

Upon request, ReThrive can provide you with a receipt that includes billing and diagnosis codes that you can submit to your insurance company for out-of-network reimbursement. ReThrive does not process your reimbursement claim.

Each carrier's reimbursement amount will vary. To find out how much your insurance pays for out-of-network Physical Therapy, contact your insurance provider.
