Effective time management helps us get more out of each day. All you need to do is a bit of planning. This week we’re focusing on improving efficiency through habit stacking and time-saving techniques. Use habit stacking to add new healthy behaviors to your daily schedule by “stacking them” on top of your existing routine. Coffee brewing? Jog in place. Waiting for the shower to heat up? Practice some deep breathing exercises. You’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish by tacking on little activities and workouts throughout the day. And if you’re worried about what to cook for dinner, we’ve got a collection of plant-based meals that you can make in 30 minutes or less. This Monday, take

Do not delay seeking medical care!

Seek medical care and DO NOT DELAY if experiencing symptoms of a serious illness such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, or dizziness. “Due to COVID-19, many people may be fearful of seeking medical care if they are having other medical issues,” stated Dr. Jennifer Morse, Medical Director for DHD#10. “It is very important that they do not delay seeking medical care if experiencing serious symptoms, as it may be a life or death situation.” Conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, and severe infections are very time-sensitive and require prompt treatment for the best outcome. Delaying treatment for a potentially life-threatening condition can be extremely dangerous, if not deadly. Data fro

Warning: Serious adverse health effects associated with Methanol-based hand sanitizers

Methanol, when used as an active ingredient, is a toxic alcohol that can cause blindness and/or death when absorbed through the skin or swallowed.

Smoothie STARS

It’s summer. It’s hot. It’s America’s birthday. I'm featuring three smoothies this month that represent all of that. 1. Apple Pie Liquefied The American classic for America’s birthday.
