Subject: Be Mindful of Melanoma!

Skin cancers attack more than one million Americans every year, and exposure to the sun causes over 90 percent of skin cancers in the U.S. Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer because it can spread from the skin through the blood or lymph system to other organs and bones. Catching melanoma early could mean the difference between life and a life-threatening cancer. In Good Health,

Subject: Don't Stop Now!
When January arrived, resolutions and a fresh approach came to mind. Then, life gets back to its hectic self and your goals can get lost in the rush of daily life.  Before you know it, it’s January again. To keep your pace for 2017, focus on you, one day at a time.
 Three simple ways to live your best:
  1. Upgrade your plate. Fill half with fruits and vegetables. Add more whole grains. Complete your meals with fatty fish, lean meat or poultry, fat free or low-fat dairy, beans and nuts.
  2. Call it a night: You’ll be ready to greet the morning if you have a good night’s sleep behind you. Banish smart devices from the bedroom and avoid caffeine close to bedtime.
  3. Move it. Physical activity burns calories, energizes you and improves your mood. Get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity exercise (such as brisk walking) weekly. Even 10 minutes at a time enhances your health.
Take this month to re-evaluate your resolutions or set new goals.  The weather will be getting warmer soon and we could certainly use a reason to get outside.  Use this as an excuse to increase your cardio!

Subject: Go SMART With Your HEART!
You’re never too young or too old to take care of your heart. The choices you make now can help keep it beating strong for life. Four steps everyone can take:
  1. Eat Better: cook with heart-smart oils that contain unsaturated fat, such as olive oil. Enjoy more fatty fish, such as salmon, sardines and canned light tuna.
  2. Learn Your Family’s Medical History: identify any problems, such as stroke, heart attack and high blood pressure, in close relatives.
  3. Get Checked: for high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and excess weight around your middle. And if you use tobacco, quit.
  4. Make Your Move: exercise strengthens your heart. It can even reverse some heart disease risks, such as unhealthy cholesterol. Start with a daily walk.

Subject: Hey Doctor!
Building a healthy relationship with your health care provider is important, especially when you’re ill. Instead of seeing a complete stranger, you’ll have a provider you know and trust.
  1. Those screenings you get reminders for can detect conditions that don’t always have immediate symptoms, such as high blood pressure, unhealthy cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Ask your provider to determine your risks and schedule the screenings you need.
  2. Getting all the vaccinations you need reduces your risk for many infectious diseases, such as the flu, measles and hepatitis A.
  3. Timely medical care gets you the best results. Treatment and management is often quicker, less expensive and more effective when disease is diagnosed sooner rather than later.
Take time now and schedule your preventive visits for the year.  And, don’t forget about your spouse and/or kids.

Go play! Memories of happy play don’t have to end with your childhood. Goofing off helps us relax and lifts our spirits at any age, from 2 to 82.
 
Quick Tips to incorporate laughter and play:
·  Create a great escape. Frolic in a water park. Build castles in the sandbox. Wear pajamas all day. Get out the board games or finger paint with your kids (or grandkids).
·  Share the joy. Stage a family treasure hunt or play cards with the neighbors. Have a picnic and simply enjoy being outside together.
·  Give yourself permission to laugh and not take life too seriously. Live for the present and lose yourself in pleasurable pursuits. All work and no play? No way.

Boost your spending power! It’s always a good idea to save money, even if you’re financially secure.
Quick Tips to plan ahead:
o   Learn how to make preserves with less sugar and sodium you’ll reduce your grocery bill, and enjoy minimally processed fruits and vegetables.
o   Invest in a small freezer. Stock up on the basics – whole-grain bread, frozen produce, meat and poultry – when they’re on sale.
o   Buy energy efficient light bulbs and appliances.
o   Trade skills or chores with a friend or neighbor. Example: pet sit the dog next door in exchange for help planting a garden.
o   Make gifts. A handmade ticket to a movie or a certificate for dining out makes giving personal.
o   Reuse. Check out secondhand stores for clothing, salvaged wood, furniture and other supplies.
