Health Brief

April 29, 2020

Even though there is a lot of emphasis on COVID-19 right now, overall health is just as important. Consider the following healthy living tips:

Daily movement

  • Walk around your apartment / hallway / neighborhood
  • Practice your exercises from a few weeks ago
  • Take advantage free online exercise videos or ask Nurse Lee for a DVD.

Healthy eating

  • Add color to your plate. Eat fruits and vegetables each day. (If eating canned vegetables, rinse them in water first; to lessen the salt.)
  • Minimize sugary treats & highly processed food (cookies, crackers, chips).
  • Drink plenty of water. Minimize sugary or fruity drinks.

Health tracking: The more information you have to share with your doctors, the better they can design your treatment plan.  

  • Blood pressure
  • Blood Glucose/sugar
  • Changes in moods and emotions
  • Pain: Where do you have pain? What is the severity of the pain on a scale of 1-10? How long does the pain last? What causes the pain? What makes it better or worse?
  • Falls, near falls, or injuries from falls
  • Any episodes of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, chest pain, or shortness of breath
  • Any other factors that are important to you
