How To Keep Life Flowing Throughout the COVID-19 Crisis
If you find yourself stuck at home, prepare and take precautions to prevent thrombosis. Here are a few reminders of how to #KeepLifeFlowing:
Remember Your Meds! Be sure to have an ample supply of any medications that you need on hand. Don’t stop taking any medication without talking to your doctor first.
Get Up and Move! Being stuck at home can be difficult and it’s important to keep moving. Here are easy exercises from our friends at Everyday Health to help prevent blood clots.
Stay hydrated! It is easy to become dehydrated so make sure to drink water throughout the day.
