• 5 Things

    you can do right now as part of your wellness routine

    1. Get Some Shut Eye
    We need seven to eight hours for maximum, but issues such as insomnia, sleep apnea, and frequent urination can keep you awake. If you are having trouble sleeping, contact your doctor.

    2. Laugh
    Laughter can strengthen the immune system, ease pain and stress and boost your energy.

    3. Eat A Prune
    Prunes have some of the highest Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacities (ORAC). In plain english, that means they are loaded with antioxidants. Blueberries, blackberries and kale are high on the list too.

    4. Stand Up Straight
    Hunching overthe computer? Poor posture can create muscle and joint pain. Consciously monitoring body mechanics and maintaining a healthy posture in daily activies can re-energize and alleviate pain.

    5. Build New Friendships
    Encourage new relationships by volunteering, attending a support group, or sending a card or email.
