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.

Halloween Safety Tips from has a few suggestions for a safe Halloween:
1. Look up local trick-or-treating rules.  Plot out a map.
2. Stick reflective tape on dark costumes.  No one wants an accident to ruin Halloween.  Face paint rather than a mask for clearer vision.
3. Pick a perfect pumpkin for carving.  Pumpkin should be firm with a level bottom.
4. Use glow-sticks or low-powered flash lights.  This is for inside the jack-o-lantern as well as for seeing as you trick-or-treat.
5. Screen candy before your kids eat.  This suggests throwing out anything that has been opened as well as home made goods unless you know the maker.
They also suggest a light snack before eating candy.  For those with allergies glow sticks or small toys make other options.
