Coronavirus update

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, eating healthy food remains an important part of maintaining your health. While there are no specific foods that can help protect you from the virus, a nutritious diet can boost your immune system or help you fight off symptoms. You may not be able to share meals with friends and loved ones, but there are lots of other ways to eat well and support your health at this difficult time.

Healthy Retirement: Save by Being Proactive

Despite all the negative news about the state of retirement savings, 48% of us didn’t save more in 2018… and 13% of us actually saved less.

The shortfall isn’t just about money – it’s about our health too.

A new research report about leveraging your health to drive 401(k) contributions says you can boost your retirement savings to the tune of $100,000 or more simply by making better health choices.

The research indicates that people who take their healthcare seriously make better financial decisions and have more money to save.

High blood pressure – the plague of so many of us gray hairs – isn’t taken seriously by most. Twenty percent of those diagnosed with it don’t take their medication, and 50% stop taking it within six months.

But if people with hypertension take their medication, they can realize as much as $2,000 per year in savings on healthcare costs

Fitness goals are awesome. Agreed?

You want to lose fat, gain muscle, and feel healthy. Reaching these goals requires good eating habits and overall, a healthy lifestyle. How are you doing with that?


What Are You Eating?

Are you really eating for fitness goals?

In order to achieve good health, it requires consuming healthy food and exercising consistently. Not living this way should make you feel weird. Do you feel weird?

If the answer is no, there is something not right with your fitness program. It usually comes down to what you’re eating. Eating unhealthy is often validated because you workout several times per week. This isn’t a healthy approach to food intake and exercise. Remember, you can’t out-exercise a crappy diet.

With many dentist offices closed, experts say it’s more important than ever to brush properly and floss regularly. Getty Images
  • Most dentist offices are closed for routine procedures during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Dentists are urging people to brush twice a day and floss once a day to take care of their teeth.
  • They say keeping your toothbrush clean is also important for good dental health.

Good dental hygiene might not be in the front of your mind in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

That could change quickly if you develop a painful cavity and can’t get in to see a dentist.

“I understand that this isn’t the most normal of times, but it’s very important to control the things we can right now,” H. Dieu Luong, DDS, a New Jersey-based dentist, told Healthline. “On a long list of things in these trying times is oral care.”

Social Determinants of Health | Healthy People 2020

Goal

Create social and physical environments that promote good health for all.

Overview

Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. We know that taking care of ourselves by eating well and staying active, not smoking, getting the recommended immunizations and screening tests, and seeing a doctor when we are sick all influence our health. Our health is also determined in part by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships. The conditions in which we live explain in part why some Americans are healthier than others and why Americans more generally are not as healthy as they could be.
