Holiday Tips

Gift Yourself a Healthier You!

Don’t wait until January to focus on your health! Now is the time to make small changes to reap big rewards. Incorporate the tips below into your daily routine!

  • Make sleep a priority. Get 7-8 hours as a lack of sleep may lead to weight gain.
  • Stay active 3-5 days per week. Strapped for time? Even 10-15 minutes a few times per day has health benefits.
  • Control your stress. Elevated cortisol levels can cause weight, erectile dysfunction, and disrupt menstrual cycles. Try taking a few slow deep breaths for 5 minutes throughout the day to reduce stress.
  • Focus on your gut to help your immune system! Eat fruits, veg-gies, whole grains, and legumes (lentils, chickpeas, etc.).

FAQs

My girlfriend just had a baby. Can I add the child to our plan?

Yes, as long as the newborn child is your natural child, your legally adopted child, or you are the child’s legal guardian. If your girlfriend is covered under the Plan as your domestic partner, your child may also be added to the Plan. You’ll need to show documents of proof to the Health & Welfare Plan Office. For more information on dependent eligibility, see Eligibility for Your Spouse and Children.
