At the start of each new year, many of us make resolutions to improve our health and wellbeing. But while our intentions may well be good, without the right support and motivation those resolutions are often broken – sometimes even before the first week of the New Year has played out.
If you’re looking for ways to become healthier this year, the one simple resolution you should seriously consider is to make more use of your local Careway pharmacy. Why? Because your local pharmacist has everything you need, from lifestyle advice and support to health tests and checks, as well as help with your medicines.
During the Christmas holidays most of us eat too much, drink too much and don’t do enough – or even any – exercise. Perhaps that’s why so many people make resolutions to try and get healthy every January.
Even if you’re careful to stick to sensible drinking levels throughout the rest of the year, chances are you probably let your hair down a bit over Christmas and New Year, and forget to keep track of how much you’re drinking.
A report by Public Health England (PHE) has revealed cases of the winter vomiting bug called norovirus are up 55 percent in England compared with last year. But what is norovirus and what can you do to stop the virus spreading?
According to the latest statistics from the Department of Health and Food Standards Agency, two percent of adults and children in the UK are vegetarian (that’s more than a million people altogether). But while that’s good news for turkeys, if one or more of your Christmas guests is a vegetarian and you’re not used to catering for them, it could add to your stress levels at this time of year.
