2018: The most fit year ever...
Fitness is tricky, even for the most ambitious and energetic. Often it is the first thing to go when life gets "busy." Fitness shouldn't be a chore, but a daily activity sought after for an escape from the wear and tear of everyday life. A daily workout can be an opportunity, not a punishment.

Anxiety affects all breeds of dogs and can lead to serious behavioral problems if left untreated.

Don't chase resolutions, chase habits
The New Year is upon us. It is that time of year again when we feel a surge of inspiration to tackle those resolutions - lose weight, quit smoking, read more books, travel - you know the drill.

Lessons from 2017

The curse of comparison
It is human nature to compare ourselves against others. There has always been a pressure from generation to generation to "keep up with the Joneses." Of course, who the "Joneses" are has changed over time. For instance, you have had to replace those lovely harvest gold and avocado appliances once so chic with white or black and then to stainless-steel, and now somehow smart appliances that can order your milk for you.

New Year's resolutions
Christmas is in the rear-view mirror; soon it will be New Year's.

It's time to partake in the American tradition of retrospection about the past year, and vows to improve in the coming year. We're swearing off the indulgent foods and lack of exercise once the new year begins. 2018 will be a milestone of personal health and fitness.

What holds you back
You know this person.

Sick and tired of their physical condition, they take the opportunity of the new year as a fresh starting point. Full of determination they make their plan; they set their goal. Then the first roadblock, then the second, then the third comes and they're giving up hope and writing off 2018.

Willpower will fail you this holiday season

Many understand that in order to succeed in health and fitness goals, diet needs to be in order, and they're going to need to exercise on a very frequent basis. This needs to be consistent over a period of months. It's a a hard journey, especially this time of year; tempting foods, familial obligations, and celebratory beverages spin a web of inescapable indulgence.

Volunteers host community Thanksgiving feast

The Thanksgiving calories avalanche
Thanksgiving is a holiday to reflect upon the good fortunes, experiences, and lessons throughout the year. Gratitude and respect is laid at the table with a spread of traditional foods. Nostalgia, memories, and the warmth of family create a cozy and comforting setting in which to enjoy some of fall's iconic bounty.

This idealistic setting comes with the tradition of overeating, overstuffing, and indulging ourselves. The American Thanksgiving meal can contain over 2,500 calories - more than the entire day's allotment for most people.

Ward off the 'winter blues'
Preparing for winter means more than blocking your air vents with foam and getting the roof rake and snow shovels out of the shed (see related story, page 3). We also have to prepare ourselves psychologically.

Firefighter returns to work after accident
A local firefighter injured six months ago in a 40-foot fall has returned to work.

Captain Thornton Brown of the Sisters-Camp Sherman RFPD was canyoneering in Hades Canyon in Death Valley with two other firefighters when he fell during a rappel. Captain Brown's injuries prevented him from continuing the hike out and he had to spend the night in the remote canyon. Rescuers with the California Highway Patrol Inland Division Air Operations (H-80) were notified of the accident and conducted an air rescue utilizing a helicopter.

Fleeting sunlight
This past weekend, America underwent its return to standard time, eschewing daylight saving for more light in the morning - and less light in the evenings.

Many of us are going to work in the darkness and returning home without seeing the sun.

Cure tension headaches ... and fix everything else that ails and fails
Generally, tension headaches are caused by the static and prolonged contraction of the muscles in the head, jaw, neck and shoulders. Makes sense! We have statically contracted muscles - tension - in a tension headache.
