Live Healthy Ways in September

September is fast approaching, so think and live healthy ;).

  • Take extra care of your sight. If you're using contact lenses, use and replace them according to your doctor's orders. Take them out before sleeping and clean them correctly.
  • According to a recent study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, dollar stores actually offer the best variety of healthful foods like canned veggies and fruits, compared with convenience food stores.
  • Sleep more safely (and soundly). If you're treating a log-sawing snore, don't automatically depend for an OTC remedy as they might not be effective. It could be sleep apnea, so see your doctor.
  • Get smart. Puzzles such as crosswords, Soduku or Rubik's cube are good ways to ward off diseases such as Alzheimer's and dementia.
