It took me almost 10 yrs. to write my health cooking book. Some recipes and health tips I received from family and friends and some from the library. The library became a part of my life. So I have donated books on behalf of the town to each and every employee of the library for their dedication and excellent service to us.
Head injury, whether from sports or from other sources, can be dangerous for the brain. According to experts it can lead to memory loss, Dementia and even the permanent brain damage.
According to the “healthy together” magazine, “A concussion is a traumatic brain injury caused by a blow or jolt to the head or body that causes the brain to bounce or twist in the skull. It can result in chemical changes in the brain and damage to brain cells, and can affect brain development. Students with inadequately treated concussions perform significantly worse on measures of attention and concentration. Repeat concussions increase the risk of severe impairment…A recent national survey found that 15 percent of students reported having had at least one concussion related to physical activity in the previous 12 months.”

Random Acts of Kindness
You don’t need money, just a little time to give mental support and be kind to all. Check on the elderly, bring their Newspaper to their door in bad weather, say hello to your neighbors when you see them, wish them happy holidays and birthdays etc. Call your parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles; talk to them to make sure they are not lonely, thank the soldiers when you see them for keeping us safe; thank priests, police officers, teachers, postal workers, newspaper persons, trash collectors for their services. Write notes to a lonely and unknown person and make his or her day. These acts of kindness have a trickle-down effect.
