Health Tip of the Day

Safety Tips for Walkers

  • Avoid walking alone.

  • Always walk facing traffic. Stay on the sidewalk or near the side of the road.

  • Walk during daylight hours. Wear reflective clothing, carry a small flashlight and walk in well-lit areas if you must walk after dark.

  • Carry identification and change for a phone call.

  • Don't wear personal headphones. You need to hear traffic noises and the movements of others around you.

  • Don't walk along highways or main commuting routes. Carbon monoxide levels are highest there.

  • Leave a note or let someone know your route and when you expect to return.

Healthy Living

Nutrition
Could your diet use a nutritional tune-up? A healthful diet has many benefits and it doesn’t have to be bland and boring. Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
