Let’s Get to the Heart of Stress

first_imgWouldn’t it be great if we could live completely stress-free lives? Eternally sitting on the beach without a care in the world might sounds great, but your body needs some stress to survive.Your stress response is on call 24/7 to balance the demands of your environment with your body’s ability to meet them.  And, your heart has a big part of this important physiological process.You go for a run- stress hormones trigger your heart to pump faster and harder, which increases the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to your muscles so they can perform.Someone pulls out in front of you while driving- within a fraction of a second, your stress hormones and heart work together to trigger a series of lightning-speed reactions that enhance your ability to swerve out of the way.Dr. George Guthrie, Board-Certified Family Medicine Physician at Florida Hospital, explains that while some stress (like exercise) is good for your heart, a constant state of stress, especially emotional stress, for long periods of time could negatively impact your cardiovascular health.Bad stressWhen faced with constant emotional stress or perceptions of stressful events (like being stuck in traffic, financial burdens or family troubles) your body responds with a cascading chain of physiological effects which are meant to assist for a short period of time.Signaled by different stress hormones like adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol, your stress response is meant to help your body get through the stressful event or feeling and then return to its natural state. However, chronic stress interferes with this natural balance, and the continuous release of stress hormones can cause the heart and other vital organs to stay revved up for too long.“Over time, overexertion on the cardiovascular system and overexposure to stress hormones can have serious health consequences, such as increased risks for chronic high blood pressure, weight gain, heart attack and stroke,” cautions Dr. Guthrie.He adds that chronic stress is also linked to inflammation in the circulatory system- especially concerning when it is within the coronary arteries. This is considered to be responsible for at least part of the association between long-term high levels of stress hormones and increased heart attack risk.What you can doYou can’t entirely prevent stress, but you can actively recognize stress triggers and develop ways to cope in a healthy way with our daily stresses. Dr. Guthrie helps his patients manage stress for better heart health by offering these tips:Shift your perspectiveRunning away from imminent danger could mean life or death. Being late for a meeting, on the other hand, generally does not carry this level of threat. However, if you think chose to think like it does, your body will respond that way.To avoid this, be aware of things that tend to signal your stress response and create a plan to cope with them. If you come down with a case of “I can’t stand-itis” or begin “awful-izing,” Dr. Guthrie suggests shifting to a larger perspective and choosing to be less reactive and more positive and proactive. Your mind has a lot of power over controlling how you perceive your stressors and how your body will react to them.  Your self-talk can make a huge difference in your stress response.Get enough good quality sleepSleep does a body good, especially a stressed one. Dr. Guthrie says that sleep is critical for your emotional health. While sleeping, your brain is processing stress from your day; Sleep scientists call this “dream work.” If you have sleep disturbances, you aren’t giving your body and mind enough dream work time to recharge, so stress continues to mount day after day. Adequate sleep will help you process prior stress and be prepared to tackle new challenges ahead.  Incidentally, most common sleeping pills interfere with the REM sleep in which most “dream work” takes place, so it is better to practice good sleep hygiene to improve your sleep.Exercise“Exercise is the best way to deal with most emotional forms of stress,” advises Dr. Guthrie. He says that exercise “cleans up your system,” so to speak. The increased blood flow, oxygen and circulation clears out the emotional stress hormones, and even helps you to make more health-conscious choices. It also lowers blood pressure afterwards, increases the “feel good” hormones in the body, and lowers blood sugar levels (where emotional stress tends to increase them). If you exercise outdoors, you can get an extra boost of vitamin D, fresh air and “outdoorphins,” all of which help counteract stressful feelings.Eat healthyStress can send a signal to your brain that you need instant energy. This can lead to cravings for high-fat and high-sugar foods or drinks, which can put more stress on the body by spiking blood sugar levels, inflammation and strain on blood vessels. Dr. Guthrie recommends avoiding these foods and focusing more on fruit and vegetables for their wonderful anti-inflammatory effects.  Hydration with water helps the body clear out the stress hormone breakdown products. Avoiding stimulants like caffeine, which have stress hormone like effects, is also a wise move.Dr. Guthrie concludes: “Long-term exposure to high levels of stress throughout your lifetime increases the likelihood of long-term adverse cardiovascular events, so it’s important to recognize, manage and cope in a healthy way with our daily stresses to promote lifelong heart and overall health.” Please enter your name here Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 Please enter your comment!

Please enter your name herecenter_img August 4, 2018 at 10:22 am August 5, 2018 at 10:11 pm APD Chief McKinley and senior staff attend scenario-based training with Orange County Public SchoolsFrom APD News In an effort to ensure the Apopka police department is prepared for a school-based emergency, Chief Michael McKinley attended a scenario-based exercise to practice the command of an emergency resulting in a multi-jurisdictional response. On July 31, 2018, Chief McKinley joined in the Orange County Public School’s district-wide table top exercise designed to simulate a response to a reported school shooting. The exercise was designed to practice and discuss command and coordination operations during an emergency scenario. McKinley, along with law enforcement members from OCPS, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Orlando PD, and others, as well as, school administrators, support staff, teachers, fire and EMS personnel, and emergency management professionals worked in coordination to resolve the situations presented. Chief McKinley (center) discusses with law enforcement executives and emergency management personnel the phases of response to a simulated school-based emergency. “This type of training and collaboration is invaluable,” Chief McKinley commented regarding the exercise, “and with the heightened awareness of school-based violence, it is important we engage all the stakeholders to ensure a successful outcome if we are presented with a major emergency.” The scenario focused on three phases of any event; the notification, the response, and the recovery. This fictional event covered the core competencies necessary within the phases, having the attendees practice operational communications, agency coordination, public information, mass care, and situational assessments. Lt. Chris Hanstein, Apopka Police’s SWAT commander, attended as well and discussed the tactical response necessary for such emergencies with the working group. Apopka will have all Orange County public schools within its jurisdiction assigned a School Resource Officer beginning August 13, when students return from summer break. This exercise, along with the dedication of officers to the schools are but a few of the commitments to this community to create a safe and livable environment for the citizens of Apopka.  You have entered an incorrect email address!

It seems that they don’t even wait until they get into the new school season, to start the violence, as I was reading the news today, on the local channels, and there was a shooting at a park, in Titusville, at a back to school event, which was full of young kids there to get free back to school backpacks filled with school supplies, and a guy that had been in a fistfight left, came back, and there were shots fired into the park, and a private citizen with a gun, and weapon permit opened fire and shot the guy to keep the kids from getting killed. Also another back to school giveaway of school supplies, a gunman opened fire, at the event and chaos ensued. This one in Atlanta. Pretty horrible when kids face danger of getting shot, going to back to school give away events! Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replylast_img read more

Home Buyers Move South For More Space In A Warmer Climate

first_img Photo by Francesca Tosolini on Unsplash Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 TAGSFlexibilityHome ConstructionHousing MarketIndoor SpaceOutdoor SpaceReal Estatesales Previous articleWe Must Stop Trying To Preserve The Current System For Doing BusinessNext articleFlorida advocates rally to raise money, pay legal obligations, register felons to vote Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear By Cindy CummingsAs the housing market has picked up over the summer, 950 people are relocating to Florida every day. Throughout the US, there is a general trend of moving away from the north and midwest to southern states such as Texas and Florida, where homebuyers are attracted by larger, luxurious properties in warmer climates. Towns like Apopka, one of Florida’s emerging residential development hotspots, are appealing to buyers from northern states looking to move away from congested cities to find a house with the potential for a home office, luxurious gym, and greater recreational outdoor space in which to enjoy the sunnier weather.Developing Substantial Outdoor SpaceAcross the country, sales of large homes are up 21% as people seek out properties with more substantial footprints. One in five purchasers are looking in particular for more outdoor space, and these trends have also caused a surge in new construction sales to meet the needs of demanding home buyers. In southern states, home builders create ranch style homes that are built to accommodate these requirements.  Whether remodeled or constructed from scratch, airy homes with wrap-around porches accommodate the warmer climate while blending indoor and outdoor living. Set on more substantial plots, these properties offer the opportunity to develop larger outdoor spaces by creating areas for comfortable entertaining and al fresco cooking, pools and ponds, and even enclosures for animals.Creating Flexible Indoor SpaceOnce only seen as luxury additions to a property, sumptuous gyms and spacious home offices are now being prioritized by home buyers. Developers are meeting the needs of their clients by including flexible and spacious open-plan layouts. Purchasers can reconfigure areas to suit their requirements, creating private offices for working from home or a separate entertainment area where families can relax together without having to leave the house. Whether designed from scratch or set up in an existing room, more homeowners are also looking at installing luxurious home gyms as an investment in their home as well as their health.As home buyers seek out space in warmer climates, builders are responding by constructing larger homes with open play layouts that allow for a wide range of uses. This flexibility is extended to the surrounding lot that can be developed to provide the luxurious outdoor living areas that homeowners are so craving.

Florida school districts, parents seek sustained funding for online learning programs

first_img The Anatomy of Fear “We will have full parental choice,” Corcoran told the State Board of Education (BOE). “The governor will take nothing less than full parental choice.”Corcoran wouldn’t guarantee Wednesday whether full parental choice includes full funding for school districts’ virtual leaning programs, noting the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) is analyzing funding models “right now and working with the districts.”Corcoran’s order from July that mandated all schools reopen in August with “the full panoply” of in-person services expires next month.A revised order will be a “collaborative effort” and reflect “significant improvement based on our first 90, 100 days in school,” Corcoran told the BOE, suggesting it may be ready before Thanksgiving.Under the July order, the state fully funded online students at the same rate it does for those attending in-person classes, a temporary pandemic-induced policy change that some parents, educators and doctors feared would not be extended in Corcoran’s revised rules.Parents of about 40% of the state’s 2.8 million K-12 students have opted not to send their children into school, instead enrolling them in district-run online options in greater numbers than the FDOE’s Virtual School program.Nearly 22,000 COVID-19 cases related to Florida K-12 schools, colleges and universities since Sept. 6 were reported Saturday by the Florida Department of Health (FDOH).The FDOH’s update from Nov. 8-14 reported 3,146 new COVID-19 cases in Florida schools – 2,397 K-12 students, 209 teachers, 109 staff and 314 “other” cases; and 749 cases among students, teachers and staff at colleges and universities.The growing caseload in schools reflects the pandemic’s statewide intensification, with FDOH reporting 7,925 new COVID-19 cases Thursday, topping 905,000 cases in Florida since March.The FDOH also reported 88 deaths Thursday, bringing the number of fatalities attributed to the disease in Florida since March to 17,949.Corcoran told the Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) in October his revised order would give parents online options while offering incentives for districts that enroll more students in face-to-face classes.“We’ve got to get those kids in the classrooms,” Corcoran said, calling online lessons “a tier-two education.”During Wednesday’s BOE meeting, board member Michael Olenick pressed Corcoran to assure families they’ll not be expected to send their children to brick-and-mortar classrooms in January.“I know people who have died from COVID. I know people who are sick from COVID,” Olenick said. “I think there is a fear with many students, faculty, parents. That fear is warranted.”Olenick agreed “the brick-and-mortar experience” is ideally best, but amid a pandemic and in a state where “school choice is the mantra,” parents should have educational options for their children.“That decision should be a parent’s decision,” he said.Families will have “full parental choice,” Corcoran said. “I can assure you, Mike, from the top down, that absolutely will happen.”The FADSS, Florida PTA and Florida Education Association (FEA), the state’s largest teachers union, have appealed to Corcoran and Gov. Ron DeSantis to extend full funding for online programs.“School districts need to know they’ll have the funds to operate without severe cuts. Parents who want their children to learn at home need to know that they’ll still have that option after Jan. 8 – in their own districts, with teachers they know and trust,” FEA President Andrew Spar said in a written statement.

Friday Funnies – George Gregan clearing up who the ref is

first_imgFriday Jul 18, 2008 Friday Funnies – George Gregan clearing up who the ref is As the Wallabies and the Springboks prepare to face off against each other in Perth on Saturday, weve pulled out a funny clip from their meeting at the same stadium, Subiaco, four years ago.Cheeky George Gregan was playing his 100th test and felt on top of the world. After Schalk Burger gets clobbered by George Smith, who turns the ball over briliantly, he ends up on the wrong side of the ruck and gets a bit of shoe pie from Georgie.Bok captain John Smit takes exception to this, pointing it out to ref Chris White, but White is having none of it, which further encourages Gregan as he kindly points out to Smit exactly who the referee on the day is.Are you the ref mate?

Rugby World Cup Daily – France to wear white as Craig Joubert gets final

first_imgMonday Oct 17, 2011 Rugby World Cup Daily – France to wear white as Craig Joubert gets final After another weekend of controversy, the referee for the World Cup final between New Zealand and France has been named as South African Craig Joubert. In other news, France will wear white in the final, so New Zealand can wear their traditional black. In 2007 France famously beat New Zealand in Cardiff with the All Blacks forced to wear their alternate grey strip that clearly didn’t work out too well for them. This year France won the coin toss to determine the home side, but allowed New Zealand to have the choice of wearing their famous black kit.“We decided to allow the All Blacks the choice to play in black. For us it is a sign of respect and a way for our team to thank New Zealanders for a remarkable World Cup,” said French team manager Jo Maso.“It is an honour to play the All Blacks when they play in their black jerseys and it is logical with the World Cup final being held at Eden Park,” he added.The gesture seemed a little lost of Graham Henry though. “We’re the All Blacks, we’re playing at home and we wear black, so it’s an obvious one. But I do thank him,” he said.The other big news of the day is that France are now ranked third in the world, having moved into that position following their win over Wales on the weekend. Wales drop to sixth but can make up ground with a third place play off win.
