Lifestyle Tips for Those with Diabetes

April 3, 2017 2:39 am

For those with diabetes, every day can be a bit more complicated. Recently, USA Medical released some healthy lifestyle habits for people living with diabetes.

"If you, like more and more people, have been diagnosed with diabetes, it's important to arm yourself with ways you can better manage the disease,” says Jordan Sessler, Co-Founder and President of USA Medical.

Maintain a diet of whole grains, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables.  Dairy should be nonfat and meats should be lean.  Limit high fat and high sugar foods.  Don't overeat.

Keep an active lifestyle to help bring down blood sugar and lower chances of getting heart disease.  Exercise will also help ease stress and shed excess weight.   Aim for at least 30 minutes of daily cardiovascular activity.

Stop smoking. Combined with diabetes, smoking raises the chances of health problems such as eye disease, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke and nerve damage.  Smoking can also make exercise more difficult.

Consume alcohol moderately because excessive amounts will negatively impact blood sugar.  According to The American Diabetes Association, women should not have more than one drink a day while men should not consume more than two.  Those who take diabetes drugs or use insulin should have food when drinking.

3 Tips to Clean up Your Workspace

April 3, 2017 2:39 am

Navigating the work day can be stressful enough. But when you’re trying to work in a messy workspace, it can be even more stressful, not only for you but for those working around you.

More than half of senior managers (54 percent) interviewed by staffing firm OfficeTeam said the most distracting or annoying aspect of employee workspaces is sloppiness or disorganization. Interestingly, one in 10 respondents acknowledged a desk that's too clean or bare raises a red flag.

OfficeTeam offers three tips for creating a workspace that leaves a good impression:

Clean up your act. Spend a few minutes every day clearing out old documents, food wrappers and dirty dishes. Reduce clutter by organizing files or going paperless.

Keep it simple. It's OK to have a few things in your workspace that are inspiring or fun to look at, but covering your desk with too many knickknacks can be an eyesore.   

Don't be offensive. Remember, items in your work area aren't always for your eyes only. Ditch the political posters, risqué photos and anything that might be too controversial.
