At Dahn Yoga, we believe that treating your body right pays off in more ways than you can foresee. A holistic approach to healthy living is essential, and that means taking care of your body through diet, yoga, meditation and vaccination.
The latter is the subject of a major health observance in August – National Immunization Awareness Month.
This is the time to consider updating yours and your children's vaccinations. Just a few simple (and usually inexpensive) shots can prevent countless infectious diseases and provide greater safety for the American public.
Plus, consider a few individual benefits of inoculation:
- You can avoid resurgent diseases. Because illnesses like whooping cough and measles are spreading once more (thanks to poor immunization rates), getting vaccinated can reduce your risk of catching a rare but serious disease.
- You can put your mind at ease. By getting vaccinated, you don't have to worry that you'll catch some nasty flu in your Georgia yoga classes.
- You can reduce your insurance premiums. Seriously. According to an article produced by NPR, employers are encouraging workers to engage in healthy activities (yoga and vaccination being two of them) in an effort to reduce healthcare costs and mitigate absenteeism.
