It goes without saying that keeping yourself and your family healthy through the winter months in Pennsylvania and Maryland can be a challenge. When you combine chillier temps, housebound days – not to mention kids passing around colds at school like they’re playing “Hot Potato” – you can end up spending the much of the winter under the covers.

No matter how many inherent seasonal risk factors you face, there are ways to prepare for and get through the season virtually unscathed. At Bitner-Henry Insurance, we wish for you a happy and abundantly healthy winter, so here are a few tips to help you stay well and enjoy!

  • Consider “sticking it’ to the Flu. Flu shots seem to be available at practically every drug store or pharmacy in Pennsylvania & Maryland. Discuss with your doctor the pros and cons of flu shots for yourself and your family.
  • Get some zzz’s. Prioritize getting enough sleep – or taking a quick nap – despite your busy schedule. Sleep is essential to health and healing.
  • Fill the fridge. It’s easy to allow your pantry to start looking like a sweet shop with Valentine’s Day nearing. Take care to stock your refrigerator and cabinets with healthy snacks and ingredients for balanced meals. Think fruit, nuts, lower-calorie snacks, veggies and lean proteins.
  • Keep moving. Despite the many temptations to just relax and stay out of the cold, don’t give in to being a couch potato. Get to the gym or yoga studio, go for a walk, jump on the treadmill or dance. The important thing is to just move!
