Relax…

Feeling tight, stressed, uptight?

I found this great yoga stretch that is so relaxing…what a great way to end your workday.

You can do it in bed or on the floor.

November- Diabetes Month

Diabetes Month is in November, so what do you need to know about this disease?

You may have heard of type one or type two diabetes; generally, type one is diagnosed at an earlier age, like in childhood and is not due to lifestye.

Type two, on the other hand, generally comes on later in life and is due to genetics, age, lifestyle, and/or race.

What is Diabetes?

According to Wikipedia, diabetes is “s a group of metabolic diseases in which a person has high blood sugar, either because the body does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).”

This disease is growing in prevalence both in the US and Canada, and more children than ever are being diagnosed with type two. The obesity epidemic is playing a huge role in these children’s futures, and they are seeing more and more cases every day. According to the Canadian Diabetes Association, “In the next 15 years, it is anticipated that the global incidence of type 2 diabetes in children will increase by up to 50 per cent.”

What can you do to help prevent diabetes from happening to you?

  • Watch what you eat. Eat in moderation.
  • Exercise regularly and follow Canada’s activity guidelines.
  • Watch your sugar and fat intake.
