Warm Weather is Here! Let’s Get Moving!

As spring approaches, it is now a good time to start preparing for some outdoor activities. One of the most easiest and basic forms of physical activity is walking. We walk when we go shopping, we walk at work, we walk to check the mail, and we walk for many other reasons. We pretty much walk all of the time. However, walking for exercise can be different. Walking may be performed at many levels of intensity. In order for walking to become an exercise, we must walk for certain periods of time with variety of intensities. A good way to begin a walking routine is to begin with finding a safe area for you to walk. Walking with a partner is a great way to maintain good support and safety. Once you find area suitable for safe walking, begin you walk with a moderately paced stride for 5-10 minutes, for a good warm-up.

The Behavioral Health Department welcomed a new member to the staff this month. Monte Blake is a Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC, with 26 years of experience in mental health and social services. Utilizing a cognitive behavioral approach to therapy coupled with an empathic understanding of the psychodynamic influence of early childhood experiences and the complexities of life, Monte has provided therapeutic services to a wide range of populations and people of all races and walks of life. Monte has worked in mental health centers, mental health hospitals and public schools. He has provided therapeutic services in the home and spent ten years providing services to incarcerated men in a medium security prison.

A prevailing philosophy for Monte has been the belief that people are capable of positive change in their life, regardless of their personal struggle, if they are willing to afford themselves an honest self evaluation through reflection, contemplation and examination of their internal dialogue and behavioral choices.

New Research Reveals Medications Are the Leading Cause of Accidental Poisoning Deaths Among Children Today 
“Safe Storage, Safe Dosing” Campaign to Focus on Medication Safety 

Washington, DC – Today Safe Kids Worldwide released a new research report that found while the death rate among children from poisoning has been cut in half since the late 1970s, the percentage of all child poisoning deaths due to medications has nearly doubled, from 36 percent to 64 percent.

Safe Storage, Safe Dosing, Safe Kids:  A Report to the Nation on Safe Medication examines trends in morbidity and mortality of medication poisoning among children ages 14 and under. The report underscores the challenge of medication-related poisoning among children and offers solutions that will reverse the trends. Safe Kids also proposes specific roles that parents and other caregivers, industry, governments, and the medical community can play in improving medication safety through safe storage and safe dosing.

How can you tell if you're hitting the mark when it comes to good oral care? Generally, your 
teeth and gums should not bleed, be painful, or feel rough or sharp to your tongue.  Your breath 
should be fresh for at least a couple of hours after brushing in the morning and after having 
eaten breakfast. One of the easiest ways to prevent gum disease is to clean your teeth properly, 
so try these tricks for a healthier mouth.
