Gearing up for the holiday dash

The holidays are here, bringing with them opportunities to enjoy fun times with family and friends. The holidays can also be a stressful time for freelancers, though. It’s easy to get run down when trying to keep up with work assignments and a steady flow of social commitments.

If you find yourself running out of energy at work, take the time to do two things:

· Get the health care you need. Don’t wait until “feeling lousy” turns into “flat on your back” before using your health insurance. Health professionals can help uncover what’s wrong and provide a plan for getting you better.

· Take time to exercise and eat right. Do you tend to work so hard that you never have time to stretch, go for walk or prepare healthy meals? You can break that cycle to feel better – and be more productive at work.

MetroPlusHealth can help you get more done by helping you stay in top form.
