Never Skip Breakfast

Starting your day off right with a healthy breakfast can help you maintain a healthy weight or even shed pounds. The trick is to eat within the first hour of waking up to prevent your body from going into starvation mode, which slows metabolism. Reach for energy-sustaining foods such as steel cut oats made with low-fat milk and topped with dried plums. Milk adds a boost of protein. Dried plums have potassium and are a good source of fiber which can help curb appetite until it’s time to reach for lunch. Soluble fiber and other compounds in dried plums have also been shown to decrease blood cholesterol levels. Your body will thank you for this morning ritual.

Drowning: How to Respond

It's critical to get the person breathing again as soon as possible.

Drowning can happen quickly. Three children die every day from drowning, and most fatal incidents happen from lack of appropriate supervision. Every minute that passes is critical in saving them or preventing serious injury. Here's what to do if you see someone drowning and you need to help rescue them.

Call 911

You should alert emergency responders as soon as possible. If there are other people around, instruct someone to make the call. If you are alone, help the drowning person until you can give CPR for one minute and then call 911 yourself (then continue life-saving measures).
