These health tips for the new year are simple and guaranteed to lead to a healthier you

Oftentimes, people are overwhelmed by just the thought of the work they anticipate comes with getting fitter.  Now, we’re not going to lie to you; reaching a better physical condition does require some effort. But Medi-Station Urgent Care in Miami is here to show you that – with just a few basic adjustments – you can start taking the steps to reach your health goals today.

Schedule an annual physical

Sometimes, overcoming procrastination is really the hardest part.

A yearly physical exam is necessary on so many levels yet many put it off because of time, fear, laziness, and a host of other reasons which are nowhere near as critical as ensuring personal health.  It’s also necessary to stay up to date on vaccines, preventive cancer screenings, and other forms of preventative care that could address potentially serious medical conditions. 

A physical exam in Miami Shores is literally as easy as walking through Medi-Station’s doors.

Drink a lot of water

It’s easy to think we sometimes get enough hydration from what we drink, but juices, coffee, cokes, alcohol, nothing nourishes the body quite like H2O.  Especially here, with heat exhaustion in Miami and other related illnesses so common, drinking an appropriate amount of water can mean the difference between a normal day and a visit to the ER or worse.

Health care professionals recommend the average person drink 2 liters of water a day to keep the body properly hydrated and fueled. This basic necessity sends hundreds to emergency care in Miami every year.  

Certain heat-related illnesses may require intravenous nourishment.  Medi-Station provides IV infusion treatment in Miami. 

Get 8 hours of sleep

Everyone gets tired, but not everyone gets the adequate amount and type of rest their body needs.

Experts believe 8 hours of sleep – without interruption – are key to reducing stress hormones, help with weight loss, and improve overall health.

Sleep deprivation leads to serious conditions such as heart disease, mental health issues, weight gain, and more, so get some rest.

Wear sunscreen

The Miami Heat is not just a team to locals.  

The UV rays from the sun can cause skin cancer or other hazardous conditions, so anyone who faces the possibility of dangerous exposure should always wear water-resistant sunscreen with SPF 30 or more.  

Depending on exposure, make sure you protect yourself and your loved ones.  Children and the elderly are particularly at risk because it’s often not something on their mind.

Laugh.  A lot 😊

Laughter really is the best medicine.

Studies have proven that a strong hearty laugh eases stress, strengthens the immune system, lowers blood pressure, and more.
