Start Your Day With Detox Water

To begin your tummy tox plan, fill a 48-ounce pitcher with water and add ginger, mint leaves, cucumber, and lemon. While on the surface this may seem like any other flavored beverage, these ingredients are key in restoring your health and wellness. Lemon helps clean out the digestive system, thanks to the enzyme-stimulating acids. Cucumbers prevent water retention and have anti-inflammatory properties. Mint promotes easy digestion and soothes stomach cramps. Ginger is also anti-inflammatory and provides soothing relief for the digestive tract, which can relieve gassiness and bloat. Try to finish the pitcher by end of day, and feel free to drink it on its own or with your meals.

Exactly How to De-Escalate Aggression From a Stranger

Follow security Expert Bill Staton's important advice to keep yourself safe.

Have you ever had a tense interaction with a stranger in public? Perhaps your shopping carts accidentally knocked into each other or there was a misunderstanding in communication and the other person gets angry. You may wonder how you can de-escalate the aggression and exit the situation safely. So security expert Bill Stanton has your go-to advice for staying alert and protecting yourself in the face of verbal aggression and physical attacks.

THE INITIAL INTERACTION

Bill Stanton: "It always starts with something small, like someone being too close to you, or even more common, you get bumped by a shopping cart. You want to look at their eyes first -it may reveal emotional changes. But you can't rely on just that. Look at what their trunk is doing; a person's torso will reveal their intent. Body language like raising hands, heightened expression, tense shoulders — these are natural responses to a person who is feeling threatened and will escalate. They may begin to zero in on the space between you and them, and their voice will get louder and louder. You want to read this before it gets further and becomes explosive."
