  • 4-H members learn good cleansing habits

    By Shelby Wilcoxson

    Today in 4-H we talked about people getting sick and ways to keep from getting sick.  One way to keep from getting sick is to wash your hands.  You sneeze on yourself then you start touching things and spreading germs.  

    The first step in washing your hands is to get warm water and apply soap.  When you get cold water your pores shrink and trap the dirt and germs.  When you use warm water the pores on your skin expands.  This allows you to get the dirt and germs out.

    The holiday season is generally a time for celebrating and enjoying the company of friends and family. Unfortunately, it is also a time when people eat more high-fat, high-calorie foods than they normally would. If you have diabetes, it is sometimes difficult to  maintain your blood glucose within the target range set by your doctor.  Some careful thought and planning can go a long way to help you manage your blood glucose and still have a good time around the holidays.

  • Is it time to replace your walking shoes?

    If you have been wearing the same walking shoes since the beginning of the year, or even longer, now may be the time to replace those shoes! 

    Often, we get very comfortable in the shoes we have on our feet and do not want to give them up.  However, those trusty shoes may not offer our feet and bodies the support needed when we are walking for exercise.
