Part of what brings us happiness and joy during the holidays is the anticipation of the good times to come.  We look forward to seeing our friends and being with family.  The happy anticipation we feel when thinking of looking at the faces of our loved ones while they open presents that surprise them or planning enjoyable activities.  All of that happy anticipation is what makes the holidays so much fun.

More people go to see their doctors because of stress than any other reason.  And, while Medical Insurance, if you have Medical Insurance, will give you the opportunities to see your physician for a co-pay of $20 or $35 dollars, that’s really not the point.  Usually when we go to see our doctor because of stress, we are looking to get a prescription to take away the stress.  Again, because you have Medical Insurance, or at least I hope you do, you will pay a co-pay for your prescription.  Wouldn’t a much better plan be to avoid being so stressed out in the first place?

Medical Insurance carriers now offer well care visits for everyone every year.  Medical Insurance providers have learned that prevention really is worth a pound of cure.  Stress has such a negative effect on our health – both mentally and physically.  Benzodiazepines are often prescribed for folks who have anxiety and sleep problems.  The four most widely written are Xanax, Klonopin, Valium and A tivan.  Aside from the potential for abuse here are some common side effects: drowsiness, poor concentration, ataxia, dysarthria, motor incoordination, muscle weakness, vertigo, and mental confusion.  Some who take benzodiazepines may also experience increased excitement, irritability, aggression, hostility and impulsivity.  Medical Insurance carriers are very wary about these drugs.  Most of the time if someone is getting Health Insurance Quotes, and are taking one of these drugs, the agent will usually inform them that the drugs will not be covered (the Medical Insurance carrier will rider the drug), the Medical Insurance carrier will rider the condition (not covered again) or the Medical Insurance carrier will simply decline the application.

Experts are suggesting that there are ways to keep that Ho Ho Ho feeling going all year long.  Plan happy activities with your friends and family during the whole year, not just the holidays.  Some of those happy times would be: birthdays, anniversaries, sporting events, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, the Fourth of July, Memorial Day, Labor Day, and vacations and weekend getaways.  Dr. Lee Berk, from Loma Linda University had these comments, “Our findings lead us to believe that by seeking out positive lifestyle experiences that make us laugh, we can do a lot with our psychophysiology to help us stay well”.  Music to the ears of  Medical Insurance providers everywhere.
