1. Exercise

Getting enough exercise can be hard on its own. The current pandemic makes it even harder because of gym closures and the risk of contracting illness. There are many resources available for people with disabilities to discover safe and fun exercise routines, with or without equipment.

Do a quick internet search for at-home adaptive workout plans. Your local adaptive sports organization may also have resources or videos of things you can do in the comfort and safety of your own home. You can start here.

2. Hydration

Water is a human need. It helps flush our systems of waste products and toxins, yet many people go through life dehydrated—which puts them at a greater risk for urinary tract infections. Talk to your healthcare provider on how to stay adequately hydrated or read more from the CDC. Remember to stay hydrated!

Food is fuel! What you put into your body is important. Make sure to research and speak to a health care professional before changing your eating habits or exercise plan. Some simple changes you can make today can be found here. During the holidays, it may be hard to stick to the right foods. It is alright to enjoy holiday treats but be mindful of your health needs first!
