Employee Health & Wellness
Make November "Stre......tch" month! It is very important to stretch every day. Even stretching for just 5 minutes a day, if you work out or not, has many healthy benefits. Stretching can help reduce or manage stress, improves posture, promotes circulation, reduces muscular tension and enhances muscular relaxation. Try stretching for 5 minutes in the morning to help start the day and the 5 minutes at night to relax and sleep better! Remember to follow us on Facebook and Twitter, #LUSDRevitalize. Check out below for this month’s special deals and events.
The health theme for the month of November is “Healthy tips to help prevent diabetes". Most cases of type 2 diabetes are preventable - healthy lifestyle changes can help you avoid, control or even reverse the disease. 3 ways to help are: keep your weight in check - excess weight is the primary cause of type 2 diabetes, Be carb smart - limit sugar and refined carbs, and Stay active!

*Health Quote for November -
“A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools."
*Simon Says! - Every night when you go to bed do one "downward dog" stretch and one "child's pose" stretch. Hold each for one minute. It will relax you and help sleep come easier.

* City of Roseville Mike Shellito Swimming Pool. Since Loomis Union School District has a corporate membership the cost is $199 for a year membership. That is equal to less than $20 a month but it must be paid up front all at once. With this membership you can attend any of the swimming classes, adult lap classes, or open swims. There are lap classes early in the morning, mid-day and evening. It gives you a good work out and is easy on the joints. They have nice showers and dressing rooms, too. To join, take a copy of a pay stub to the pool and fill out an application. Tell the girls at the front to give the app and pay stub to Scott. Pay your fee and you are in. The membership is offered for everyone in the district as well as immediate family members at the same price. This is an outstanding deal! http://roseville.ca.us/parks/parks_n_facilities/facilities/pools/central_park/default.asp
