Happy, Healthy Valentine's Day!
Roses are red,
Whether you plan to celebrate on your own or with someone special on Valentine's Day, give the gift of health to yourself and your loved one. Below are tips to help keep you and those you care about safe and healthy on Valentine's Day and all year long.
Be Prepared for Travel
If you are going on a romantic getaway, be prepared. Are vaccinations required? Are there special items such as sunscreen or insect repellant that you will need? Do you take medications, do you have enough for the trip? If you're going on a cruise, learn the sanitation inspection scores for specific ships. Know what's happening en route or at your travel destination.
Be Sensible, Go Easy on the Bubbly
If you drink alcohol, do so only in moderation. Excessive alcohol use has immediate effects that increase the risk of many harmful health conditions. It is also the third leading cause of preventable death. Don't drink and drive or let others drink and drive. Women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant should not drink any alcohol.
