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

I got hurt on the job, but Workers’ Compensation is not paying me. Can I get disability benefits?

If you suffer a work-related injury, you are not eligible for short-term disability benefits. However, if you suffer a work-related injury and are denied Workers’ Compensation, you are eligible to apply for the Weekly Disability Subrogation Agreement. You can also apply for long-term disability benefits six months after your injury. For more information, see the "If You Become Disabled" section on the Life Events page.
