Living a healthier lifestyle

A healthy lifestyle is a must to avoid health problems ten years down the line and to lead a healthy and fulfilling life. Little changes to improve your lifestyle can have a surprisingly big impact in the future and that’s why you should start to transform your routine and habits today.

Exercise and Sleep well: Exercise and quality sleep go hand in hand. Physical activity, good sleeping habits and the right nutrition can impact your entire life.

Seven hours of sleep is recommended for healthy living, as quality sleep is an important ingredient for a well-balanced lifestyle. Along with that, you should also incorporate a suitable exercise routine to keep your body healthy, in shape and to build your stamina.

Have a balanced diet: Eat healthy foods that that contain minimal amounts of unhealthy fats, and switch to a diet with low sugar, organic ingredients, fresh fruits, and whole grain bread. A best diet consists of little portions of healthy foods that are taken 5-6 daily.

Take care of personal hygiene: Good personal hygiene is essential to promoting good health. Teeth should be brushed twice a day, antiperspirants must be used to reduce sweating, nails must be trimmed, and hands must be washed before eating food.

To live a longer life and prevent illnesses and diseases, it is essential to understand the importance of taking caring of your health and forming healthy habits starting from now.

COVID-19 TESTING UPDATE:

The Exceptional Emergency Room staff and physicians care about you and your loved ones. We are here 24/7 for all your emergency care needs.

  1. If you are experiencing fever, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, weakness, numbness, sensory loss, or any other emergent medical problems, please call 911 or seek medical care immediately at your nearest Emergency Room.
  2. To provide the highest quality emergency medical care to our communities, we are directing all routine COVID testing to outpatient community resources.
  3. Testing through local resources, including your primary care doctor, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or local health department, is appropriate under the following circumstances:
    1. If you have been exposed to a person known to have COVID, and you do not have symptoms, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home and seek testing 4-5 days after exposure. It often takes this long for the infection to be detected by routine lab testing.
    2. If you have no symptoms or very mild symptoms, outpatient testing is also typically appropriate.
    3. Please follow this link for local COVID testing resources.
  4. If you have tested negative, you should still self-quarantine for 14 days from the day of suspected exposure as it can take anywhere from 2-14 days to come down with symptoms of this infection.
  5. Please kindly limit your phone time with our Emergency Rooms as the phone lines are needed to communicate with other health care entities and to provide patients their test results. Thank you for your understanding during this trying time.
