My husband Eric and I are the proud ‘parents’ of five German Shepherds. They can be a handful, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Not only are dogs adorable and loving creatures, but owning a dog may also reduce our risk of having heart problems and stress related issues. In fact, there are many health benefits associated with owning dogs. To put it simply, dogs may help us live longer!
Employee wellness programs have become ubiquitous. In fact, over 90 percent of companies, and the majority of government entities, offer some sort of wellness program for their employees. Many companies have installed gyms in the office space, offer employees “stand-and-stretch” breaks throughout the day, and provide healthier food options in cafeterias and break rooms. All have been shown to make a positive difference.
I love farmers’ markets. They’re great for getting outside and changing up the sometimes mundane trip to the grocery store. It’s also great to support local businesses that offer fresh, healthy foods. It can also be beneficial to bring your child to a farmers’ market. Seeing the array of colorful, fresh produce and learning about where these foods come from can be empowering for children.
