We gave out 400 backpacks with school supplies this year in addition to clothes, food, hygiene products, and more. We had great vendors including PAL, Oakland Forward, Honor Community Health, and Consumers Energy who was also the lead sponsor for this event. Shout out as well to BorgWarner Inc. for supplying and grilling the food!

This past weekend we lost an hour of sleep ... remember we had to "Spring Forward" and set our clocks ahead? Well, as chance would have it, this week is Sleep Awareness Week – a chance for everyone to learn the connection between sleep and their health.
Good daytime behaviors, including exercise, eating at the right times and limited screen time before going to bed can make a big difference in getting a good night's sleep. To learn more, please visit the National Sleep Foundation's website at http://thensf.org

My education at Carnegie made the transition to the educator role seamless. I was able to apply what I learned in a new way, to take my experience and know that new hires are being taught the correct way to perform clinical skills in the office.” Happy 75th Carnegie!

SLEEP MORE
Sleeping restores the body, helps decrease stress and increases overall happiness. To reap the full benefits, clocking seven hours each night is key. A calming bedtime routine and going to bed and waking at the same time each day are all great ways to establish healthy sleep patterns. Getting ample sunshine and physical activity throughout the day also aid in improving sleep quality. – BioIQ.com

STRESS LESS
Stress increases cortisol, which leads to weight gain, a key risk factor for heart disease. In addition, stress can lead to other unhealthy habits, making it harder to stick to a heart-healthy program. Stress can also decrease overall happiness and increase the risk for anxiety and depression. Many of the items on this list can also help with reducing stress, in addition to practicing positive self-talk and incorporating mindfulness meditation breaks throughout the day. – BioIQ.com

LIMIT JUNK
To reap the full benefits of a heart-healthy diet, it’s important to limit intake of nutrient-poor junk foods. Added sugars, saturated fat and excessive sodium can all negatively impact heart health, as well as overall physical health. These foods, when eaten in excess, can cause weight gain, raise blood pressure and clog arteries, which are all risk factors for heart disease. – BioIQ.com
