Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Pamphlet: Tobacco and Stress

Many people who smoke or use tobacco, do so because of the stress reduction.  However much of this is a false benefit.  For many, the nicotine addiction causes the stress, so of course using nicotine relieves this temporarily, however the long term effect is just the opposite.  Sometimes the stress reduction is related to the activities you might do with smoking, such as taking a break from work.
The exciting part about this pamphlet is the list of alternative suggestion to reduce stress.
I really like the idea of playing with your pet.  You can relax without the cigarette.  Stress reduction can become a life style which includes reading, enjoying music, gardening, meditation, exercise, eating well, getting plenty of rest, and talking over your problems with someone.
