Annual Exams Can Help You Stay Healthy In 2019

We are through the hectic holiday season, and people everywhere are starting work on their new year’s resolutions. If one of your resolutions is to prioritize your health, annual exams at Medinet can help. If your health isn’t one of your resolutions, it should be! Taking care of your health, as well as your family’s health is the best way to ensure you are able to complete your other resolutions. Whether it’s a big promotion, or a family trip, staying healthy in 2019 is essential to completing your goals.

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY WITH ANNUAL EXAMS AT MEDINET

The first step to staying healthy is to come in for annual exams at our Houston family care clinic. If it has been more than a year since your last annual check up, come in right away. These check-ups allow us to keep up to date with your medical records, and talk to you about your plan for continuing healthcare in 2019. Whether that may be a desire for a diet change due to possibly allergies, a concern related to chronic illness, or anything in between, our caring and professional team is here to help.

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY AT HOME

Along with your annual exams, there are lots of ways you can stay healthy at home. Making it through the end of flu season is a goal for many families this time of year. With the holidays behind us, it is back to the everyday schedule of school and work. No one wants to start the year off sick, so following a few easy tips can help keep everyone healthy.
Make sure everyone in the family is eating healthy, with lots of protein, fruits, and veggies. Wash hands frequently, especially before eating and after sneezing or coughing. Carrying a small bottle of antibacterial hand sanitizer can be beneficial for anyone who is on the go. It is also extremely important that every member of the family who can get the flu shot, does get the flu shot. This should be done in the month of October, but can still be effective in later months. Combining all of these methods, along with an annual check-up, is the best way to remain healthy throughout the year.
