Healthy Living Tips: how sleep and exercise help at work
and our personal lives
Though research shows that exercise is certainly good for one’s body and
health, properly timing exercise is necessary to maximize the beneficial effects. For example, a good workout can make you
more alert at work, speed up your metabolism and energize you for the day ahead, but exercise right before bedtime can lead
to a poor night’s sleep. All the jumping jacks in the world won’t make up for a night of tossing and turning!
Sleep experts recommend exercising at least three hours before bedtime, and the best time is usually late afternoon. Exercising
at this time is beneficial because body temperature is related to sleep. Body temperatures rise during exercise and take as
long as 6 hours to begin to drop. Because cooler body temperatures are associated with sleep onset, it’s important to
allow the body time to cool off before sleep. Practicing healthy living will give you the energy to do the things you love,
spending time with family or loved ones or maybe your favorite hobby.
Ways to stay Healthy during this years Flu Season
There are basically four ways germs can spread:
- Direct Contact — Touching or kissing a person (or animal) that is infected with
bacteria or a virus.
- Indirect Contact — Touching something that is contaminated
with germs and then touches their eyes, nose or mouth.
- Through the Air
— Coughing, sneezing or talking, which sprays small germ-filled droplets into the air. Anyone within three feet can
easily be infected.
- Food Contamination — Eating unwashed vegetables and
raw or undercooked food that is contaminated with bacteria.

of spreading these germs from surfaces by touch
Using soap and water along
with frequent and proper hand washing are important parts of a cleaning routine. Disinfecting also plays a critically important
role by helping to prevent the spread of illness-causing bacteria and viruses. It is especially important to disinfect when
someone in your home or office is sick, immune compromised, or during an outbreak
§ Pick a product. Overall, soap and water remove dirt and debris,
sanitizers reduce bacteria and EPA-registered disinfectants kill viruses, bacteria and fungi.

instructions for using them. Always read the label of any product and never mix products together.
