Unfortunately, hearing loss carries a stigma. Across America, there are approximately 48 million Americans (20%!) that report some degree of hearing loss.
With hearing loss being so prevalent, we should all be champions of the hard of hearing, making sure to be inclusive and inviting in all situations.
Happy Full Moon Monday 🌕✨ I’ve become fascinated with astrology + the lunar cycle in recent years, but I certainly don’t claim to be an expert. So, I want to share some words from one of my favorite accounts to follow - @spiritdaughter - that really spoke to me + the place I am in life right now. I feel like we could all use the reminder to TRUST ourselves + our instincts a little better 💫
“Sagittarius is one of the most optimistic and expansive signs of the zodiac. This energy reminds us to trust the bigger picture of our life, even if we can’t see the whole thing right now. The Full Moon is asking you to stop analyzing every intricate piece of the puzzle and remember there’s a larger vision to your life. You’re on a journey and that journey requires faith and trust. Let go of any needs for guarantees or certainties. Take a leap, not from your logical mind but from your intuition. Trust any downloads or inspirational hits that pop into your mind. If it feels right, it probably is - then align with Sagittarius and ask yourself “what’s the best that can happen?””

Why do I always default to strength being the “exit lane” for return to training post injury ?
Part of returning to function post injury is ensuring that someone is adequately prepared to deal with whatever they are returning to. That can be sport, work or just generally life
The training characteristic that best prepares people for life is strength. Strength will have a positive effect on all physical characteristics and is central to the long term physical health of, well, everyone 🤷♂️ ...
About 90% of poison exposures happen at home, making it the second leading cause of accidental death in the home.
Home safety tips to prevent child poisoning are: ●Know your poisons. Bottles that contained poison should be marked with a skull and crossbones, as they are in cartoons. Poisons come in many forms:cosmetics, insecticides, garden products such as fertilizer, furniture polish, dishwasher detergent, and carbon monoxide from burning fuel.
●Buy wisely. Purchase products with child safety lids, whenever you can. ●Store safely. Put any product with a warning label up high and in a locked cabinet. Don’t keep medicines in your purse, pockets, or drawers. Keep products in their original containers. Do not use food containers for storage. ●Watch your children. Most child poisonings occur when parents are cooking dinner or not watching their children closely for other reasons. ●Follow directions on chemical products. Open a window when you are using them. Never mix household cleaning products together. ●Keep carbon monoxide outside. Have heaters, stoves, and fireplaces checked by a professional every year. ●Stay on top of medicines. Follow directions and measure carefully, keep track of when medicines are taken, put them away right after use and get rid of expired medicine
In 2004, acute poisoning caused more than 45 000 deaths in children and youth under 20 years of age – 13% of all fatal accidental poisonings worldwide. (WHO)
