Prevention costs more than treatment. It’s hard to measure the money you saved on the heart attack you didn’t have. During these times, please ensure you are still putting your wellness first. Stress is an originating factor for many chronic diseases and major medical events.
Keep your routine screenings on your physician’s calendar for later this summer when they may be back to their regular routines and social distancing requirements have hopefully ended.
Here are some ideas to help you receive necessary medical care and wellness support.
- Your insurance company may offer free mental health, stress, and anxiety counseling and resources during this time.
- If you’re a student, your university likely has an affordable health insurance plan that you can join. You do not have to be uninsured during these challenging times.
- Small business owners may be able to get health insurance coverage through a group plan hosted by the local chamber of commerce as member benefit. Check chambers in your geographic area or specialized chambers relating to your personal demographic.
Wellness is not optional. I continue to offer the Wellthy Academy and work-life wellness coaching to support ladies with restoring balance and reversing burnout. Our days look really different now. Equip yourself with strategies for success with work and family during this time.
