“Nicole Scullion of US Health Group talks with Tammy Watson of Wilkinson & Associates ERA about competitive health insurance options for her family”
The future of the health industry in America has never been more precarious. With the uncertainty surrounding the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and controversy over The American Care Act (Trump care) it seems more important than ever to take care of your own health. There are a number of things you can do that don’t take much effort, but can
improve your health and fitness and reduce the chances that you will end up reliant upon this precarious health system.
Eat from your own Garden.
Not only will this mean that you are exercising and moving around in the sunlight and fresh air, with sunscreen on, it will increase your consumption of vegetables. Everyone knows this is the best thing you can do for your diet and it will also save you from the ever rising food prices.
Move around as much as you can.
We’ve become a sedentary society. We sit at our computers during the day and at our televisions at night. The human body needs exercise. Not only should you be getting a dedicated block of exercise every day, but you need to move around more the rest of the day as well. Take the stairs, walk to the corner shop, clean the house. Whatever it takes.
Drink more water.
Drink more water than you think you need. The human body needs at least 8 big cups of water a day. Tea and coffee doesn’t count. Avoid sodas and other sugary drinks altogether and drink water if you want to perform one action that will radically improve your health.
Sleep at least 7 hours a day.
Quality sleep is one of the most important factors in determining your health. Without it, we can’t concentrate, can’t heal properly and tend to eat more to compensate for the tiredness.To improve the quality of your sleep, go to bed at the same time every night. Turn off your electronic devices and block all light from the bedroom. Get up at the same time every day. It’s obvious, but you’d be surprised by how many people don’t do these things.
Talk to your Health Insurance Agent
When looking for health insurance, the Agent is your best source of information. Talk to them about the best insurance options for emergency care, it’s not a pleasant thing to think about, but it might be essential one day in a health crisis.
Ask whether they offer credits for a healthy lifestyle and regular check-ups, some of them do and you can save some money if you qualify. Finally, if you follow these tips and do everything you can to keep yourself healthy and active, make sure your health insurance agent knows about it. Health insurance providers like to know that their investment is as safe as you can make it.
Practice preventative health care.
This means looking after yourself in whatever ways fit your health and lifestyle. Get massages to reduce stress and prevent injury. If your diet is lacking, or if you think it might be lacking, take supplements. And see your doctor regularly for check-ups and further tips on maintaining your health.
Nobody knows what could happen in the future, and the changes to the American health system can make everything seem even more uncertain. The best response you can have is to decide to take control of your own health. Do what you can to maintain or even improve your physical health and fitness. It’s the best way to minimise your reliance on an uncertain health system.
