Some simple tips to keep in mind when eating out

For starters, eat a healthy snack before heading out

By Christine Schroeder, MOT, OTR/L
We all have that favorite restaurant……that one place we just can’t resist. Our go- to place for special occasions. If you have committed to a healthier lifestyle, does that mean you have to kiss that restaurant good-bye? Not necessarily …….

However, adopting a healthy lifestyle does mean holding yourself accountable.

Did you exercise today? Did you resist that cookie after lunch? Have you eaten out only on days that end in ‘Y”? LOL! Make sure you treat special occasions as what they are…special occasions!  Don’t diminish those wonderful and rare experiences into normal everyday occurrences. 

Sleep….as important to your health as diet and exercise?

You actually promise yourself that tonight will be different

It’s been a long day. You are more than ready to go to bed……and it’s only 3:00 pm!

You actually promise yourself that tonight will be different. You are going to get to bed early and get some sleep! Soooo, you get home from work and start tackling that ‘to-do’ list with a vengeance.  

Make dinner, run kids to/from practice, throw in a load of laundry, help your kids with homework, fold some laundry, do the dishes, exercise (hint, hint…even if it’s just a little;), shower and put the kids to bed.

Sewer funds available

The Kenton Hardin Health Department has been approved by the Ohio EPA for Water Pollution Control Loan Fund, WPCLF, funds totaling $100,000 for 2018. This money can be used for failing existing sewage treatment systems or sanitary sewer tap-ins for those families or individuals who meet 100, 200 or 300% poverty guidelines.
