Health Tip
Add Strength 
to Your Run
Adding wall sits to the end of every run will strengthen your quads, hamstrings and glutes, improving your speed and endurance. 

Lean against a wall with your feet shoulder-width apart, then squat until your knees are bent at 45 degrees. Hold for 30 to 60 seconds; work up to doing 10 sets.

6 First Aid Mistakes You Make Every Day
By Kasandra Brabaw

Think you've got first aid down pat? Think again. Much of what most people know about first aid comes from outdated practices, old wives' tales, or was passed down through generations of family until it became fact. And if your great-great-grandmother says you should pour hydrogen peroxide over a scraped knee, you believe her.

It's time to stop trusting your great-great-grandmother and start trusting first aid experts like Nici Singletary, MD, FACEP, a member of the American Red Cross Scientific Advisory Council. She gave us the low-down on 6 first aid mistakes people make all the time-and what to do instead.

Mistake: You don't pull the splinter out.

Contrary to popular belief, your body will not push a splinter out on its own. And the longer you leave it in, the harder it will be to get out. "If you wait for it to work it's way out, a wood splinter will just soak up the moisture in your body, become softer, and be harder to remove," says Singletary.
Top Tips for Preventing Falls
By National Osteoporosis Foundation

Preventing Falls

Each year about one-third of all people over age 65 will fall. Many of these falls result in broken bones. Some common causes of falls include outdoor and indoor hazards. Certain lifestyle behaviors can also increase your chances of falling.

Outdoor Safety Tips

Try the following tips to help prevent falls when you are outside:
  • Wear low-heeled shoes with rubber soles for more solid footing (traction), and wear warm boots in winter.
  • Use hand rails as you go up and down steps and on escalators.
  • If sidewalks look slippery, walk in the grass for more solid footing.
  • In winter, carry a small bag of rock salt or kosher salt in your pocket or car. You can then sprinkle the salt or kitty litter on sidewalks or streets that are slippery.
  • Look carefully at floor surfaces in public buildings. Floors made of highly polished marble or tile can be very slippery. When these surfaces are wet, they may become dangerous. When floors have plastic or carpet runners in place, stay on them whenever possible.
  • Keep your porch, deck, walkways and driveway free of leaves, snow, trash or clutter. Also keep them in good repair. Cover porch steps with a gritty, weather-proof paint and install handrails on both sides.
