February is Heart Health Month

February is Heart Health Month

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news? It is also one of the most preventable.  Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.  FEBRUARY IS HEART HEALTH MONTH.  Make a difference in our community by spreading the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encouraging those around you to have their hearts checked and commit to heart-healthy lives.

Here are some time-tested heart-disease prevention strategies to initiate:

Eat Fiber - Got veggies? The American Heart Association recommends having a few meatless meals each week and increasing the amount of fiber and whole grains in your diet. 

Watch Your Weight - Carrying too much weight is a key risk factor for heart disease, and it affects the majority of Americans — 69 percent of adults are either overweight or obese, according to the CDC. 

Exercise Regularly - The American Heart Association recommends getting 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. Staying fit can improve your heart health in countless ways, such as helping to lower blood pressure, manage your weight, lower cholesterol, control your blood sugar, and even reduce stress.

Wear a Pedometer - One of the easiest and most convenient ways to help prevent heart disease is by simply lacing up your athletic shoes and heading out for a brisk walk.

Get a Good Night's Sleep - Poor sleep is tied to a number of risk factors for heart disease, including high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and heart failure.

Stay Positive - "People who see the world optimistically — who see the cup as half-full — may be less likely to develop heart disease, as opposed to people who are more pessimistic, who worry all the time — this causes hormonal responses that may be more likely to lead to heart disease," Dr. Sinatra said.

Make 2017 the Best Year

5 Moves to Make 2017

the Best Year of Your Life

 

Right now there’s probably a fire lit under you because it’s a new year. And that fire might keep burning for a week or two, but eventually it goes out, and everything goes back to normal. To kick butt and conquer the world, it’s important to remember that it’s the little things we do repeatedly that lead to our biggest changes. None of these ideas are particularly complicated or mind blowing. You’ve probably heard many of them before. If they’re done consistently over the course of a year, they can lead to big changes.

1. Make People Around You Better Off - What this looks like is different for all of us. Maybe it’s something as simple as holding the door open for someone. It could be as complicated as building a company to solve a problem that impacts a billion people within a decade. As Zig Ziglar once said, “You get everything you want if you can just help enough other people get what they want.”

2. Realize That Time Is Your Most Precious Asset - It’s the only resource in your life that’s non-renewable. Place a really high dollar value on it. Then, ask yourself, “Would I be doing what I’m doing right now if my time was worth X dollars an hour?” If the answer is yes, carry on. If the answer is no, change what you’re doing.

3. Move Fast—and Finish - Make it a habit to finish what you start, and then move on to the next big thing.

4. Have a Daily Practice - It doesn’t really matter what the practice is. When you do something daily, you’ll experience the power of visible and incremental progress.

5. Practice Gratitude - There’s been plenty of scientific evidence that this will make you a much happier person. It’s a simple life skill with a tremendous return on investment.

The Joy of Giving

Wardens Office - Wednesday, December 14, 2016

 

A woman who was traveling alone in the mountains found a precious stone in a stream. The next day she met another traveler who was hungry; the woman opened her bag to share her food. The hungry traveler saw the precious stone and asked the woman to give it to him. She did so without hesitation. The traveler left, rejoicing in his great fortune. He knew the stone was worth enough to give him security for a lifetime. But a few days later he came back to return the stone to the woman. “I’ve been thinking,” He said, “I know how valuable the stone is, but I give it back in the hope that you can give me something even more precious. Give me what you have within you that enabled you to give me the stone.”
The woman smiled, “The joy of giving!”

Why Vacation Matters

 Why Vacation Matters

A life well led is a life of balance and meaning, and those things don't come by work alone.  You need time to socialize with family and friends and to pursue interests outside of work.  Even so, Americans are hesitant to take time off.  In 2013, U.S. workers failed to use 169 million days of vacation.  When they do vacation they are often glued to cell phones or laptops.  Why can't they let go?  The biggest reason is the pile of work that will await them; 40 percent of Americans say they don't vacation precisely because they don't want to deal with a difficult return.  Yet studies show that vacations are good for our mental and physical health and our level of productivity.  A study found that people who do take vacations are more satisfied with their lives, more energized and positive, and more creative.  The fact is that many of the best, most creative ideas transpire when you're relaxing and away from work.  Vacationing is not selfish.  Humans are social creatures who benefit tremendously from change, new experiences, and time to refect and relax.
