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 am on Workers’ Compensation. Can I get disability benefits, too?

While you are collecting Workers’ Compensation, you are not eligible to receive short-term disability benefits from the Plan. However, you are eligible to apply for long-term disability benefits six months after your injury. Any long-term disability benefit you receive will be reduced by your Workers’ Compensation and other forms of income. For many reasons, it is to your advantage to apply for long-term disability benefits. Call the Health & Welfare Plan office if you have any questions.
