    10 Ways to Have a Healthy Holiday Season

    Brighten the holidays by making your health and safety a
    priority. Take steps to keep you and your loved ones safe and
    healthy—and ready to enjoy the holidays.

    1. Wash hands often to help prevent the spread of germs. It’s
    flu season. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water for at least 20 seconds.

    2. Bundle up to stay dry and warm. Wear appropriate outdoor
    clothing: light, warm layers, gloves, hats, scarves, and waterproof boots.

    3. Manage stress. Give yourself a break if you feel stressed out,
    overwhelmed, and out of control. Some of the best ways to
    manage stress are to find support, connect socially, and get
    plenty of sleep.

    4. Don’t drink and drive or let others drink and drive. Whenever anyone drives drunk, they put everyone on the road in danger. Choose not to drink and drive and help others do the same.

    5. Fasten seat belts while driving or riding in a motor
    vehicle. Always buckle your children in the car using a child
    safety seat, booster seat, or seat belt according to their height,
    weight, and age. Buckle up every time, no matter how short the trip and encourage passengers to do the same.

    6. Get exams and screenings. Ask your health care provider what exams you need and when to get them. Update your personal and family history.

    7. Get your vaccinations. Vaccinations help prevent diseases and save lives. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year.

    8. Practice fire safety. Most residential fires occur during the
    winter months, so don’t leave fireplaces, space heaters, food
    cooking on stoves, or candles unattended. Have an emergency
    plan and practice it regularly.
