CSI No Shave November Starts TODAY - Men, Start Your Beards!

Things to watch for during No Shave November: Tony Mannen Tie Day and a Best Beard Contest (TBA) with awesome prizes for all!
This is when guys all across the country drop their razors for an entire month until December 1st rolls around. Some men view it as a competition to see who grows the best beard and others do it truly to support the cause.
At some point in the last couple of years you have probably heard of "no shave November". The whole purpose of no shave November is not to let your beards grow crazy, but to raise awareness for different kinds of cancer including prostate cancer. The goal is to donate the money you normally would use to get a haircut or groom your facial hair to St. Jude or other cancer research charities.
This is a great tradition but the real no shave November meaning and significance often gets lost among all of the jokes, hashtags and hype created by the media. Many men don't even realize why they do it. Some use it as an excuse to not shave for a whole month. Although the no shave November cause of cancer is a great cause to support, there are other alternative ways to show your support.

Learn more about it online>> 

TBA: Tony Mannen Tie Day & the No Shave Nov. Beard Contest

Watch for this event to take place at the end of the month.  Details to follow.

NoShaveNovemberSo, You've Joined No Shave November. What's Next?

While you're growing out your beard for the month, you're likely to tell people about why you're doing it. It's a great conversation starter, and can really generate a huge conversation about cancer. It can get more people to make sure they're getting regular checks for prostate cancer, breast cancer, melanoma, etc.

To properly participate in No Shave November, you should be donating the money that you aren't spending on razors and shaving accessories to a cancer research organization, such as the Prevent Cancer Foundation, Fight Colorectal Cancer, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Don't just participate in No Shave November to grow an awesome beard - make it worthwhile and donate the money you're saving to cancer research!

There's more to growing out your beard than just getting a new look. There's actually health benefits, too! A beard is a natural toxin filter - it keeps things like pollen and dust from getting into your lungs, because they're clinging to your beard instead.

It can also help prevent blemishes. Shaving gives you a risk of getting bacteria into your skin, especially if you're not using proper methods. Growing out a beard can combat this.

November is when the weather really starts getting cold, and a beard can act like a scarf for your face and neck. It's really the perfect time to stop shaving!
Lastly, a beard can help with sun protection. Obviously you will still need to apply sunscreen, because hair isn't going to block out 100% of the sun's UV rays, but it's been proven that a beard can block up to 95% of them! What better way to support cancer awareness than actually practicing it?

HealthCareDirectiveCreate Your State of Idaho Health Care Directive
Note: This is a document I have online with a card I carry in my wallet for reference. I  recommend it to everyone 18 and older. 

Advance directive documents allow you to give instructions to your health care provider if you  can't speak for yourself due to injury or illness. These documents can be short, simple 
statements that express your values and choices.

Here are a few examples:
  • Idaho Living Will: This document allows you to state your wishes about medical care if you're terminally ill or in a persistent vegetative state and can no longer make your own decisions. 
  • Health Care Directive: Unlike a living will, this directive isn't limited to cases of terminal illness. If you can't make or communicate your own decisions because of illness or injury, a health care directive allows you to keep control over the health care decisions that are important to you. 
  • Idaho Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care: This document lets you empower someone to make decisions about your medical care, including life support, if you can no longer speak for yourself. 
  • Physician Order for Scope of Treatment, or POST: A POST is a document, signed by your physician, that expresses your treatment wishes. Your POST order will be followed by emergency medical personnel, medical care providers, and health institutions in Idaho. For more information, visit the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare site
  • Patient Statements: You may give a verbal directive to your physician, but it must be documented in your medical record before it is considered valid.
How do advance directives work?
Once your advance directive is on file, hospital physicians and staff will honor and comply with it as the necessary physician orders are in place. If your advance directives create medical, ethical, or professional dilemmas among physicians, family members, nurses or other care providers will help consult.

Who should have an advance directive?
If you are admitted as an inpatient to the hospital, hospice, or home care, you'll be asked about advance directives. Advance directives might sound like they're just for older people, but these documents are even more important for younger people. Advance directives can help your family and health care team understand what you want.

How can I put my own advance directives in place?
  1. Download and complete Living Will and Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare forms in either English or Spanish 
  2. Register your advance directives online with the state of Idaho.
  3. Give a copy to the person you appointed as your decision-maker, also known as your health care (medical) power of attorney or agent.
  4. Give a copy to your family members and loved ones. Take the time to discuss your choices, values, and preferences.
  5. Give a copy to each of your physicians. You can take a copy with you on your next office visit or mail one asking that it be added to your medical records.

ResilienceWorkplaceWhat Factors Promote Resilience in the Workplace?
From our EAP service www.bpahealth.com/eap-home

Resilience involves the modification of a person's response to a potentially risky situation. People who are resilient are able to maintain high self-esteem and self-efficacy in spite of the challenges they face. By fostering resilience, people are building psychological defenses against stress. The more resources and defenses available during a time of struggle, the better able to cope and bounce back from adverse circumstances people will be. A person's ability to regain a sense of normalcy or define a new normalcy after adverse circumstances will be partially based on the resources available to him or her. Resilience building can begin at any time.

Organizational Resilience: The ability for a business or industry, including its employees, to cope with adversity and change. Signs of this type of resilience are:
  • Proactive employees
  • Clear mission, goals, and values
  • Encourages opportunities to influence change
  • Clear communication
  • Nonjudgmental
  • Emphasizes learning
  • Rewards high performance
Fostering organizational or community resilience will greatly depend on the community itself and involves the community working as a whole toward preparedness. It is the capacity for the collective to take preemptive action toward preparedness. Community resilience involves the following factors:
  • Connection and caring
  • Collective resources
  • Critical analysis of the community
  • Skill building for community members
  • Prevention, preparedness, and response to stressful events
Resilience is exercised when community members demonstrate behaviors such as confidence, hard work, cooperation, resourcefulness, and support of those who have needs during particular events. These are factors that help communities withstand challenging circumstances. Developing resilience is a personal journey. All people do not react identically to traumatic and stressful life events. An approach to building resilience that works for one person might not work for another. People use varying strategies. Resilience involves maintaining flexibility and balance in life during stressful circumstances and traumatic events. Being resilient does not mean that a person does not experience difficulty or distress. Emotional pain and sadness are common in people who have suffered major adversity or trauma in their lives. Stress can be dealt with proactively by building resilience to prepare for stressful circumstances, while learning how to recognize symptoms of stress. Fostering resilience or the ability to bounce back from a stressful situation is a proactive mechanism to managing stress.

For more information or to view this month's webinar on building resiliency, go online at www.bpahealth.com/eap-home and login to access your work-life resources.

There are tickets available for the third performance of the Arts on Tour season "EmiSunshine", which will take place in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium on Tuesday, November 6 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for students high school & under and are available at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288.

The exceptional talents of critically-acclaimed teen music prodigy, EmiSunshine has captured the nation's attention. The singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist has been hailed by outlets such as No Depression, Billboard and Rolling Stone: "Sounds like the spunky, intense little sister to artists Iris DeMent, Natalie Maines, Nanci Griffith and Janis Joplin."

EmiSunshine has already graced some of the most-prestigious stages-from the "Today Show," to the Grand Ole Opry (over a dozen times) and most recently, "Little Big Shots starring Steve Harvey" last April. Additionally, EmiSunshine stars in and performs three songs in her latest film appearance on "The King," alongside such celebrities as Roseanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ethan Hawke, Alec Baldwin and more. The film featured at this year's Sundance Film Festival and premiered at Cannes Film Festival, where Emi performed.

A well-crafted storyteller, Emi's music has been described as an "old-timey," unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, Bluegrass, Gospel, and Country, with a sprinkle of Blues.
Follow-up performances of the Arts on Tour season include Under the Streetlamp: Hip for the Holidays (November 29), John McEuen & Friends: Will the Circle be Unbroken (February 1), International Guitar Night (February 13), and Collectif9 (April 1).

WeightlossAdviceThe Best Weight-Loss Advice to Borrow From Popular Diets
Before the holiday season event begins, here are some ideals for healthy habits to trim both you and your tree for Christmas and the winter season. 

By Samantha Cassetty, RD For NBC Better

A new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that almost half of Americans tried to lose weight within the past year - up from 43 percent when people were last surveyed between 2007 and 2008. But deciding how to go about it can be confusing, especially since there's wild variation in advice from popular dietary approaches, like intermittent fasting, the ketogenic diet, or even a non-diet approach.

So how do you choose the best plan of attack to finally shed the extra weight? Instead of committing to just one plan, steal the best advice from all the popular diets to piece together a routine that will deliver the best results. Here's some healthy eating advice you can borrow from the most popular programs.


Takeaway: Ditch the restrictive diet mentality.

There's a lot to be said for rejecting fad diets, overly restrictive eating, and unrealistic body types - a few key pillars of the anti-diet movement. Being too restrictive and focused on a specific weight goal takes up a lot of mental energy that could be freed up for more important things - like your love life, your friends and family, and your killer career. This form of dieting can also take an emotional toll. It's a good idea to move away from a restrictive diet mentality and to prize both your physical and emotional health. Forget what you've heard about ideal body weights and find the place where you can live most healthfully and happily.
