Changing Seasons

I know it’s a cliché, but where did the time go? It seemed like just a moment ago it was summer fun and school time — and now we’re talking about the holidays? Of course, with all the tough financial news, it’s nice to focus on something positive. It is a time of year that should be less about what we spend and more about spending time with those we love. So for a good stress reliever, pop in a favorite movie and gather the family. Cook a healthy meal. You can find great heart-healthy recipes in the Sacred Heart cookbook called Heart Smart Living. Call Sacred Heart Medical Center Public Relations for a free copy (474-3081).

Nothing is better for our health or souls than meals cooked at home. With sports, school events, work — well, you get the idea — it’s a treat just to enjoy time together. But make it less of a treat and more of a habit. Studies show parents who eat with their kids have stronger relationships, and the kids do better in school, too. And let’s face it — one less fast-food hamburger or pizza to go has got to be better on the waistline.

And, of course, while thinking of meals, don’t forget Tom’s Turkey Drive! It’s Nov. 21-22 at all Spokane and Deer Park Rosauers locations.

Enjoy the holidays, enjoy each other, and above all — enjoy good health.

    Where does the time go? It seems like we were just dusting off the lake sand from our toes, and now we’re buying school clothes and looking at winter boots.

  • Embracing Spring

    Spring is such a great time of year. Everything is in bloom, the sun warms the land (and quite frankly our spirits), and the kids can finally break free and head outside. It’s also a time of change and organization. We clean our homes, wash our cars, and plan an out-of-school getaway with the family.

    I don’t know if it gets any better than summer in the Inland Northwest. The nights are cool, while the days are long and hot. There’s an explosion of activities — swimming to softball — fueled by fresh seasonal produce and barbecues with friends.
