SEE a KINDer Self


SEE Tip: Be KIND and feed your body with good for it food.  Nourish your body with foods that make it run well and feel good.  Things like leafy greens, whole foods, fresh fruit, and lean meats can make a body know that you appreciate it.  We are giving out KIND bars as part of SEE for Yourself Monday, along with the kick off to National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.  Nourish your body and appreciate all that it does for you.  We'll be giving out bars of KINDness at the Rec Center starting at 3pm until supplies last.

HKB Applause:  It does seem a bit incompatible that a place where a person can pick up his/her Rx could also throw in a pack of cigarettes.  Particularly if the health condition is being provoked, exasperated, caused by, or is somehow correlated to the dangers smoking cigarettes.  CVS/Caremark picked up on this incompatibility and decided that as of October 1, 2014, they will no longer sell tobacco products.  This is a huge step towards prevention- whether it be prevention of new smokers or prevention of continued smokers by limiting access.  Smoking is a terribly difficult addiction to quit, but CVS and others can help with the fight.  If you are looking for a place to start your quit journey, check out MDQuit.org for resources.
