Taking "The 10 Minute Diabetes Vacation"

Highlights from the June

Hawthorne Diabetes Group gathering 

Summer's here and we're in vacation mode!

Here are some tips on how to take a safe diabetes vacation this season.

For more detailed information on each of these tips, visit the Tips & Tools page at www.3peachesnutrition.com and download the "Taking a Diabetes Vacation" handout.

1. A safe vacation doesn’t last too long and involves planning ahead.

2. An unsafe vacation from diabetes is ignoring your diabetes; it is something that might go on for a long time and can threaten your health.

3. Include your healthcare team in a vacation plan.

4. For a safe diabetes vacation, one good guideline is to do the very basics of your diabetes management responsibilities.

5. Consider bringing in another person who can help with your diabetes care (ex: cooking a meal, checking your blood sugars, tracking medication and supplements).

~ Catch Julia's interview with Empire Radio Now ~

Earlier this month, Empire Radio Now invited Julia to be a guest on their show. During this interview, Julia discussed the rhythms of diabetes; how diabetes management is restoring one of the natural rhythms of life. The importance of self-compassion as a tool for heath and well-being was another point of discussion.
