February is the month of love, but it is also American heart month. It is important to keep your heart healthy. Having knowledge about your heart will help you know what's good and bad for it. Here are a few important facts about the heart and how to keep it healthy.
Water is essential to the human body. Up to 60% of water makes up the body, which helps the key factors of the bodywork, as well as controlling our body temperature, our immune system, and breathing. It is most important to drink water first thing in the morning, as this helps to kick-start your body for the day. As our bodies excessively lose water throughout the day, it is highly important to make sure we replenish our bodies.
It's flu season coming up, and no one wants to catch the flu so make sure to be taking precautions this year! While there are may ways to prevent the flu, washing hands, getting vaccinated and wearing a mask are the top three! Facemasks add an extra layer to protect you from all the germs that people spread.
Do you like listening to music while working out? Maybe it’s to keep your mind off the daily grind or just something to help pass the time on the treadmill. As it turns out, music actually helps you work out. A new study has concluded that all people—whether they’re normally active or inactive—can benefit from listening to music while they exercise.
Sometimes, life can feel stale, boring, or even depressing. Do you ever go outside to get some fresh air and come back feeling refreshed, energized, or just “better?” Research published in Scientific Reports found that people who spend at least 120 minutes in nature a week are significantly more likely to report good health and higher psychological well-being than those who don't visit nature at all during an average week.
We use digital technology every day for getting across town, checking the latest news, and communicating with people around the world. But would you trust a machine—not a human doctor—to diagnose a serious health condition? A lot of people are saying "yes."
2019 is set to be the worst year for measles in the U.S. since the year 2000, when the disease was thought to be eliminated. As of April 19, at least 626 individual cases of measles have been confirmed in 22 states, with numbers expected to quickly surpass the previous yearly record of 667 in 2014.
Have you ever woken up and just knew it was going to be a bad day? You might even think there are specific days on the calendar when bad things are more likely to happen. Not to frighten you, but today is March 15th, known by historians and literary fans as the Ides of March—possibly one of the most infamous "unlucky" days of all time.
Daylight Savings Time—three words guaranteed to elicit a few sighs and eye-rolls. I'm sure you've wondered, "How is this still a thing?" There are many questions about why we continue to participate in this time-honored tradition, but Daylight Savings Time is worth discussing because of what it does to our bodies; and most importantly, our hearts.
Imagine someone comes up to you and compliments your appearance, gives you praise for completing a task, or just passes along an encouraging word. It's probably going to make you feel pretty good, right? Kind words are more important than you think. In fact, studies have shown that giving compliments can have just as strong of an impact as receiving them.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women, so we all need to learn CPR and be vigilant about our own heart health. Eating the right diet is essential for long-term heart health—but with so much information online it can be nearly impossible to figure out what foods truly keep your heart in tip-top shape. Here’s a quick list of the best foods to eat, and why they’re so good for your heart.
February is often seen as a month of love and romance, but it's also a great time to take care of your heart. It's American Heart Month, an annual celebration that started in 1963 to inspire Americans to join the fight against heart disease. Celebrating American Heart Month means bringing awareness your community so everyone can live better, healthier lives. Here are some simple ways you can celebrate!
Winter is a cold and dreary time of year, and it's not always easy to function. Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD as it's commonly known, is a form of depression that usually begins in late fall or early winter and starts to fade as the weather improves. It puts a damper on people's mental health, causing symptoms of depression, irritability, laziness, and trouble waking up in the morning. SAD can affect anyone, including children. Everyone experiences these symptoms differently but there's usually something that will help. Below are 5 remedies to try.
New Year's resolutions are generally a waste of time. You'll start out with a noble goal like losing weight, and then by February you're eating a carton of chocolate ice cream and using the treadmill as a closet. In fact, according to one survey, only 8% of us actually keep our resolutions. Why is everyone so bad at this? Well, there are 5 reasons why people fail at bettering themselves in the new year. If we analyze these problems and focus on achieving our goals, there is a much greater chance for success.
The end of the calendar year is "list time." You see them everywhere: lists ranking the year's best music, most memorable sporting events, news, and just about everything else you can imagine. Here's a list that might interest you: The United Health Foundation released its annual America’s Health Rankings Annual Report, which ranks the states from 1-50 using 35 different health measures including behaviors, environment, policy, clinical care, and health outcomes.
There's always that one person on your shopping list who's hard to buy for. I mean, what do you get your spouse's uncle? You’ve only met him once and have absolutely no idea what he likes. Getting him a gift card is such a cop-out, so what do you buy? Fortunately, CPR Savers has you covered with gifts this holiday season. In addition to our 12 Days of Christmas Deals here are some ideas for stocking stuffers that are sure to please:
Life fact: Everyone gets hurt sometimes. It can be anything from a turned ankle to a stiff lower back--and of course these pesky injuries always pop up when you least expect them. Ice and heat are both commonly used to treat injuries. But did you know that if you use the wrong one, you can actually make your situation worse? To find out the right way to treat an injury, let's take a look at the effectiveness of both methods and when you should use them.
There is a lot of information online about the flu, and it's not easy to get the facts straight. What is the flu, and how do I prevent it? What should I do if I get it? Let's cut through all the noise and answer some of the most frequently asked questions about flu season with help from our good friends at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
'Tis the season to be sickly. It may be called the most wonderful time of the year, yet it's still a mystery how there is so much cheer coupled with so much contagion in the air. Nevertheless, don't let germs be the reason you won't give Gram-Gram some holiday sugar. While sicknesses like strep throat and the flu seem to be at an all-time high during the colder times of year, nothing should ever discourage from the family love.
Do you have a personal connection to breast cancer? If you or someone you love has ever had the disease, you may already know the facts. You may know that 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, or that this year over 250,000 new cases will be diagnosed. However, those of us in good health may not take time to think about the issue -- after all, it's easy to forget about when you're already in good health.
The weather is changing! Cooler temperatures mean it's time to open the other side of your closet--you know, the side with the long sleeves and hoodies that get ignored during the dog days of summer. It's about time you showed them some love. And the best part about this time of year? The mild weather and dwindling crowds give you a good excuse to get away from the day-to-day grind and spend some time outdoors. Hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, rock climbing--the possibilities are endless.
