Summer fun events are still happening 

You may be thinking about fall and back-to-school shopping, but there are still fun happenings to enjoy in August, including local carnivals, boating on the lake, or a swim in the ocean.
 
If you are traveling internationally, don't forget our LRFA Travel Medical Plan. Our summer special rates end August 31st.
 
Stay Hydrated & Toast Your Good Health
Before heading outdoors, drink a full glass of water to build your reserves. Even when lounging by the pool, you need frequent water drinks. You can also hydrate with fruit, like watermelon, grapes, and oranges.
 
Remember to alternate those fun summertime cocktails with a full glass of water. When possible, dilute drinks with seltzer or mix in seasonal fruit to add water content.
 
 
What else can you do to stay healthy as summer wraps up?  
Start reviewing your health insurance coverage so that you know what options you have to protect yourself and your family.
 
 
 
Did you forget to sign up for the Summer Special rates for the  
LRFA Travel Medical Plan??? Click here for info before this offer ends on August 31st.

Expecting visitors from overseas?
 
Take lots of selfies! Rest assured that your international relatives will have medical coverage, should some unexpected illness or injury happen during their visit.

The LRFA Emergency Medical Plan for Visitors from Abroad protects non-US citizens from the high cost of medical bills if they get  sick or injured while visiting the United States. Medical coverage is important. Even basic emergency care can be veryexpensive.
 
This is not a health insurance policy, but a temporary travel medical plan to help LRFA members cover the unexpected medical costs of a visiting family member as a result of sudden accidents or illness.  
 
Find out about our low rates! As low as $45/month for adults.

Who came up with the 8-hour workday? 

 

You may not know this, but May 1st is known as Labour Day or International Worker's Day and is marked with a public holiday in over 80 countries, including Latvia. Most countries celebrate on or about May 1st because in 1884 the American Federation of Organized Trades and Labor Unions demanded an eight-hour workday, to come in effect as of May 1, 1886. Europeans agreed!

Spring is in the air!

Spring cleaning is something people do all over the world. Its a good time to open the windows and enjoy the fresh air. Why not clean up or volunteer in your community? Many cities and townships across the US have cleanup activities.
"Liela talka" or Big Clean-up is an nationwide annual Latvian tradition that often includes sprucing up parks and picking up trash. Each of Latvia's regions and cities has a designated Big Clean-up coordinator, who registers the activities planned by local volunteers and organizes garbage collection from official sites. Big Clean-up Latvia

(click the Liela Talka logo
for locations & info in Latvia)

 

This spring, find some opportunities near you. Help make your local community a nicer place for everyone to enjoy! 
 
Enjoy the outdoors for better health

Not only is being outside enjoyable, but experts say is good for your health. It can reduce stress and depression and even boost memory!
family walking in the woods
 At LRFA, we know the importance of taking care of your health. Prevention is the best medicine. Whether you enjoy a walk in the woods or yoga with friends, taking care of yourself should be a regular part of your day.
 
Our Health Supplemental Planscover things like fitness memberships, chiropractic care, and acupuncture.
 
Don't let expensive deductibles and co-pays from your primary insurance keep you from getting your annual check-ups and exams.
