Tips from Peralta Health Professionals

Health & Wellness Tips from Peralta Health Services Staff

  1. Take 10 deep breaths upon awakening and 10 deep breaths before going to sleep – Director of Health Services Indra Thadani
  2. Watch your sodium (salt) intake, especially if you have a family history of high blood pressure – Clerical Assistant II Veronica Crawford
  3. Have trouble getting motivated in the morning?  Put some high-energy music on, you’ll wiggle right out of bed! – Student Health Intern Meghan Moriarty
  4. Allow yourself a screen-free 30 minutes before bed. The light from electronic screens signals your brain to stay awake. By allowing yourself this time before bed, your brain’s activity will slow down and prepare for sleep – Student Health Intern Meghan Moriarty
