Optimize Your Brain With Phytonutrients

Phytonutrients found in plants and plant-based foods are naturally-occurring chemicals that can help repair and optimize your brain cells. Get the benefits by starting each morning with a phytonutrient-rich tonic of green tea, turmeric, ginger, lemon, and rosemary. Throughout the day, continue adding more phytonutrients to your diet by eating assorted vegetables in a variety of colors. Vegetables with richer, darker colors will contain more phytonutrients, but it’s important to eat vegetables in every color – from red and yellow to green and purple.

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.

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."
