Cold Temperatures Will Continue After Helena and May Lead to Lasting Travel Woes. What can you do about it?
1. Sleep In
Sleeping in makes you feel good. It helps with quality of life, memory, reducing inflammation and can lower blood pressure. If you’re an athlete, a lot of our clients are, it can improve your performance on the field. So turn off the alarm and go back to bed!
2. Treat yourself and EAT!
Are you one of those people who run out the door with a cup of coffee and drive to work? Or maybe you’re scarfing down a bagel and checking your appointment calendar at a red light. You can change all of that this weekend with a big and healthy breakfast. Try these quick combos:
- a bowl of high-fiber, multigrain cereal, lots of strawberries, and low-fat milk
- a granola bar, an apple, and low-fat milk, nonfat yogurt, fresh blueberries, and a slice of whole-wheat toast with fruit spread
- a mini whole-wheat bagel, spread lightly with cream cheese and jam, a peach; and a cup of yogurt
- scrambled egg on a whole-wheat roll, with fresh fruit salad and a cup of low-fat milk
- a low-fat muffin, a wedge of cantaloupe, and a cup of latte made with skim milk
- multi-grain pancakes, bacon or sausage, agave syrup, choice of fruit topping, grits, spinach egg white omelet, rye toast, and a glass of orange juice
May we suggest afterwards to try #9 to burn off some of these calories.
3. Get stuff done
How liberating is it to cross an item off your checklist? Take a look at your project list today to see if there is anything you can do around the house today. Hang a picture, do laundry, organize your desk, or do homework with your kids.
4. Binge watch your favorite series
If you’re week is all work no play then this weekend you can take the opportunity to cuddle with a loved one under the blanket on the couch or in bed. Stress management coach and holistic therapist Catherine A. Connors reminds how physical contact with others can help to reduce stress. “Hugging, kissing, or more physical acts of touch increases oxytocin levels, which is a ‘bonding’ hormone—this chemical reaction can help to reduce blood pressure, which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease, but it can also help to reduce stress and anxiety,” Connors says.
5. Watch a funny movie
Laughter is the best medicine. Adds joy and zest to life, eases anxiety and tension, relieves stress, improves mood and mental functioning, enhances resilience, improves self-esteem, helps overcome anger and resentment.
6. Parents: Help make an Indoor Fort and/or other games
Here’s a link to 9 Creative Forts Click Here
7. Make your favorite hot soup
There’s nothing like a warm, hearty soup on a cold chilly day. Here are some of our favs, Cauliflower Chowder, Classic Chicken Noodle, Creamy Chicken and Mushroom, Spinach and White Bean Soup or our favorite Roasted Butternut Squash and Bacon Soup.
8. Parents: Play in the snow with your kids.
Try Freeze tag, Sculpt in the snow, or blowing bubbles and watch them freeze on the wand (must be below freezing temperatures).
Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed.
You may also feel better about your appearance and yourself when you exercise regularly, which can boost your confidence and improve your self-esteem. Check out this “at-home workout” here: http://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/30-minute-no-equipment-circuit-workout
10. Hang out with friends
If you’re lucky enough to have friends within walk-able distance, either invite them over or walk over to their place. Socializing is like free therapy for de-stressing. You have a chance to unwind and catch up, to hear or share some interesting stories. Some good games to play, Cranium, Family Fued, Catch Phrase, or the classic Scrabble.
If you’re lucky enough to live in the Cary, Raleigh, Apex, Durham, Morrisville, Chapel Hill, Garner, Fuquay-Varina, then there is no escaping winter storm “Helena”. So make the best of it. Your health and wellness are counting on you, and so are your kids!!!

Athlete will have the entire month of October to complete their distance and can use Athletic Lab during open hours, it does NOT have to be done in one sitting.
- BEGINNER LEVEL = 10,000m
- INTERMEDIATE LEVEL = 21,097.5m = 1/2 marathon
- COMPETITION LEVEL = 42,195m = marathon
Meters are purchased in 100m increments (minimum). Each 100m costs $2.00 (or 0.02/ meter. It is the athlete’s objective to raise enough interest & money from donor(s). The athlete will commit to row the meters equivalent to the money raised. If an athlete gets multiple donors and raises $1,000, he/she will row 50k meters.

Domestic violence is the willful intimidation, physical assault, battery, sexual assault, and/or other abusive behavior as part of a systematic pattern of power and control perpetrated by one intimate partner against another. It includes physical violence, sexual violence, psychological violence, and emotional abuse. The frequency and severity of domestic violence can vary dramatically; however, the one constant component of domestic violence is one partner’s consistent efforts to maintain power and control over the other.
Domestic violence is an epidemic affecting individuals in every community, regardless of age, economic status, sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, or nationality. It is often accompanied by emotionally abusive and controlling behavior that is only a fraction of a systematic pattern of dominance and control. Domestic violence can result in physical injury, psychological trauma, and in severe cases, even death. The devastating physical, emotional, and psychological consequences of domestic violence can cross generations and last a lifetime.

Love her posts. Here is one we would like to share with you.
Treatment plans for mental health care differ from situation to situation. In some cases, it calls for therapy and in other cases medication is needed. This doesn’t mean that when you wake up feeling sad, you call the doctor and start popping pills. However, when depression or severe emotional behavior begins to affect your daily life, work and relationships, it is time to seek help. There is no shame in taking medicines if needed. If you get the flu do you take meds? Yes. So what is the difference when it is the flu of the mind. There is none. Would you blame someone who lost her husband in war for seeking out medication for anxiety? Would you judge a woman for taking antidepressants who lost her child 2 months shy of his 1st birthday to cancer? We all want to end up at the same place, but some need…

At Massage & Healthy Living, Cary, NC we are always learning new techniques to make not only our therapist better but to make our clients better! We are excited about this ancient technique, Cupping Therapy. If you haven’t seen our previous (funny) video about cupping, it’s a must watch. Below, Anita demonstrates another way of performing this technique. We hope you enjoy it!
This can be done at our studio and can be blended INTO your 60/90 min massage OR, you may wish to just do a 15 – 30 minute massage and focus on specific areas like, back and shoulders, or legs and feet for example.
Anita Shannon of ACE Massage Cupping™ http://www.massagecupping.com/index.html
is at the Oakworks facility demonstrating ACE MediCupping™ and Vacutherapies™ massage. She is using the Oakworks ProLuxe™ electric lift Massage Table with the adjustable breast comfort system along with other Oakworks accessories. http://www.massagetables.com/
Current vacuum therapies are a modern use of an ancient tool and possess the benefits of traditional use, along with many incredible new applications. This therapy utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol, bulb or machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups are moved over the skin using gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques while gently pulling up on the cup, and are parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can readily eliminate them. Scar tissues often release quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.
