Health Tip
Nuts for Health

Despite being  high in fat, nuts are incredibly nutritious and healthy.  They are loaded with magnesium, vitamin E, fiber and various other nutrients.  Studies show that nuts can help you  lose weight , and may help fight type 2 diabetes and heart disease.


Hello and welcome to our December  newsletter!
This month, we'll be sharing tips to stay healthy during the holidays, as well as cold weather injury and illness tips.



17 Holiday Health Tips
By Elizabeth Passarella

Indulging Without Overindulging
Relax. You won't gain 10 pounds. It's a misconception that you'll need to go up a pant size in January. The average person gains only about a pound during the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Year's. That's no excuse to eat with abandon, though. (After all, gaining one pound every year can add up in the long run.) But a study published in the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology notes that people who had an attitude of forgiveness and self-compassion after one high-calorie setback were less likely to give up and keep bingeing. So if you lose control with a dish of chocolate truffles, don't think, I've blown it. Might as well move on to the eggnog. Just forgive yourself for the truffles.

Don't skip meals.
 It seems logical: Forgo lunch; leave more room for pigs in blankets at the office party later. But arriving starved may result in overeating, and drinking on an empty stomach will give you a quicker buzz, which is more likely to lead to mindless munching. Eat normally during the day, and be strategic at the buffet. Don't bother with things you don't absolutely love. Splurge on something special (hint: It's not those cubes of Cheddar), then stop.

Cold Weather Injury 
and Illness Tips
By Tri-Rehab

Frostbite occurs when the heat supply to a part of the body is insufficien t to counteract the heat loss and results in actual freezing. The frozen area is normally small and most commonly occurs on the nose, ears, cheeks and fingers. The signs and symptoms for frostbite can include frostnip (initially red, then white and painless with soft skin). 

Superficial frostbite shows white and waxy skin with firm, soft tissue while deep frostbite shows signs of blotchy skin with a white to purplish tinge, numbness and solid skin over entire depth. Treatment for first and second degree frostbite includes warming the tissue with warm water or a warm hand over the involved area. This area will be extremely sensitive to further cold exposure and should be protected accordingly. 

The treatment for third degree frostbite is to transport the person to a medical facility immediately. There is often permanent damage with this type of injury.

Tips to avoid cold injury:

1. Cover all exposed surfaces in a cold environment.
2. Avoid contact with colder objects or cold wind.
