May 2018: Tips, ENews & More!

 

With spring finally making its way to stay in Canada, we are more than ready for some bright sunshine! There are plenty of outdoor activities to get excited about, so it is essential to restart great habits like using sunscreen and drinking plenty of water to help prevent heat-related illnesses. As we get even more active, keep these precautions in mind for outdoor safety:

  • Tune up your bike before your first ride and remember to always wear a helmet when you go cycling.
  • Wear the appropriate footwear and protective gear for all sporting activities.
  • Always be aware of your surroundings.

The Canada Safety Council educates the public about potential health concerns during Summer Safety Week (May 1-7). For more tips to help you and your loved ones, visit Canada Safety Council.

We hope you enjoyed Mother's Day and are looking forward to Victoria Day on May 21st. Its good to have occasions to get together with family and friends and enjoy the warm weather.

Have a cheerful month!

Mental Health and Dental Health
 

Are they actually related?

The connection between mental health and overall physical health has been extensively studied, but not much focus has been placed on how mental health and dental health can affect each other.

Mental and dental health are related, as poor mental health often results in the neglect of oral care, which in turn can result in oral disease, social anxieties and self-esteem issues. One of the most obvious mental health issues that directly affects oral health is severe dental anxiety.

Zesty Quinoa Salad

 

This bright and colorful salad is a great summertime recipe (or anytime you want to feel like its summertime). Light and citrusy, it's a whole new way to enjoy quinoa. Lime juice and cilantro give it a refreshing kick, while quinoa and black beans serve as tasty vegan protein. If you're not vegan, add even more protein by adding chunks of chicken or turkey. Yum!
