5 carbon monoxide safety tips
Along with the cold temperatures, snow and ice, winter also brings unpredictable
dangers, including the threat of carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. According to the
Journal of the American Medical Association, CO poisoning is the number one cause
of accidental poisonings in the U.S. Referred to as the "silent killer," CO is a colorless,
odorless and tasteless gas that can only be detected with a CO alarm.
"As temperatures dip and we crank up the heat, it is important to make sure your home
is equipped with the adequate number of working CO alarms," said Tarsila Wey, director
of marketing for First Alert. "Proper placement and maintenance of CO alarms can
potentially save the lives of you and your loved ones."
Every year, CO poisoning takes the lives of over 400 people, while an additional 50,000
people are treated for it, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention -
and half of these deaths occur between November and February.
Here are 5 ways to ensure you are practicing CO safety this winter:
Check your alarms. Be sure to check all carbon monoxide alarms in your home by
testing them regularly and replacing the batteries at least twice each year. Generally,
CO alarms should be replaced every ve to seven years. However, newer CO alarm
models, such as the First Alert 10-Year CO Alarm, now offer a lifespan of 10 years,
allowing you to rest easy without having to worry about changing the batteries every six
months. CO alarms should be installed on every oor, including the basement, and in or
near every sleeping area of the home.
Warm up your car outside. Do not attempt to warm up your car or leave your car running
inside of the garage, even if the garage door is open. Garages are a common source of
carbon monoxide, and in the case of attached garages, these fumes can leak into the
home. Other common sources of CO include, but are not limited to, heaters, replaces,
furnaces, appliances or cooking sources using coal, wood, petroleum products or other
fuels that emit CO as a by-product of combustion.
Ensure proper ventilation. The kitchen stove is among the most frequent sources of
CO poisoning in the home. To help eliminate the danger of overexposure, always run
exhaust fans when cooking and periodically open a nearby window when using the oven
or stove to allow fresh air to circulate. Never use the stove to heat your home.
Maintain fuel-burning appliances. Have a professional inspect any fuel-burning
appliances throughout the home each season. This includes furnaces, water heaters,
ovens and dryers, as carbon monoxide can leak from any fuel-burning device. If using
a replace to heat your home, make sure your ue is open and have your chimney
checked and cleaned each year by a professional.
Know the symptoms of CO poisoning. Because you can't see or smell carbon monoxide,
you might not recognize the symptoms of CO poisoning, as they can be confused with
common cold and u symptoms such as headache, nausea, dizziness, weakness,
chest pain and vomiting. If a CO alarm sounds or symptoms appear, exit the home
immediately and call 911.

Vast majority of Americans
lose sleep to binge-watch TV
A new survey from the American Academy of Sleep Medicine
(AASM) found that 88% of U.S. adults admitted to losing sleep due to
staying up late to watch multiple episodes of a TV show or streaming
series - and this number jumps to 95% when looking at 18- to
44-year-olds.
The same survey shows that Americans rank sleep as their second
most important priority, following family. But actions speak louder
than words, and it's not just TV shows that are taking precedence
over sleep. Two-thirds of adults have lost sleep due to reading, 75%
of men have lost sleep watching sporting events, and 72% of those
aged 18-34 have put video games ahead of bedtime.
"Choosing to binge on entertainment at night instead of sleeping has
serious ramications," said AASM President Dr. Kelly A. Carden.
"Sleep is essential to health, well-being and safety, and chronic
insucient sleep can lead to an increased risk of health problems,
mood disorders and motor vehicle accidents."
Here are a few tips to help binge-watch responsibly:
Set an episode limit. Commit to a specic number of episodes at the
beginning of your watching session. To decide how many episodes
you can t in, determine your bedtime. The AASM recommends
adults get seven or more hours of sleep for optimal health. Use this
bedtime calculator to nd out when you need to go to bed based on
your wake time.
Get out of the "auto-play" loop. Many streaming services will
automatically launch episodes one after another to ensure you
keep watching. This makes it easy to think "OK, one more episode,"
leading to late nights and sleepy mornings. Check settings to turn
o the "auto-play" and ensure you are consciously choosing when to
continue watching, and when to power o for bed.
Make time on the weekend. If you enjoy streaming for longer periods,
set aside part of your weekend to catch up on your favorite shows.
Reserving Saturday or Sunday afternoon will provide more time for
getting immersed in your shows, while still providing adequate time
for sleep.
Filter out blue light at night. If you stream content on a cell phone or
tablet, make sure you have altered the device's blue light setting to
minimize the alerting eects of screens at night. Bright light, such as
that from a mobile device, sends signals to your brain that indicate
you should be awake. This can make it dicult to fall asleep. Adjust
your screen's brightness in the evening and avoid any electronics at
least 30 minutes before bedtime.
Avoid using devices in bed. Streaming from the comfort of bed can
also impede your ability to fall asleep. It's best to keep electronics out
of the bed so that you associate your bed with sleep when you lay
down at night.
If you are experiencing ongoing sleep problems, talk to your medical
provider, who may direct you to the sleep team at an accredited
sleep center for help. For more information and to nd a local
accredited sleep center, visit www.sleepeducation.org. (BPT)

Practice makes perfect:
Easy steps to plan for an
emergency
Fires can occur when you least expect it, leaving little time to plan
your escape, so the time to prepare for an emergency isn't when your
alarm sounds. According to the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA), only 32% of American households have actually developed
and practiced an emergency escape plan. Make time to sit down with
your family to plan and practice what you would do in case of a re or
carbon monoxide (CO) emergency. Consider the following tips when
helping to prepare yourself and your loved ones:
Map it out. Begin thinking about a home re escape plan by rst
drawing a map of your home, making sure to label each window
and door. Identify two ways out of each room and walk through your
home to make sure the doors and windows you've chosen as exits
open easily. If your family's home has a second oor, consider having
escape ladders in each room. You can nd templates online to help
you get started.
Choose a meeting spot. After you have mapped out all of the ways
you can exit, pick an outside meeting spot a safe distance away from
your home, such as across the street, at a mailbox or in front of the
neighbor's home. Be sure that your family knows that once they are
outside, they need to call 911 and stay outside. Additionally, explain it
is important that everyone knows never to re-enter the home for any
reason and to let a reghter know if someone is missing.
Help your loved ones. Assign someone in your family who can assist
infants, seniors or pets during a re. The responsible person should be
in good health and be able to provide the assistance needed.
Check your smoke alarms. Having working smoke alarms on each level
of the home and in every sleeping area is key to having a safe home.
Check that you have alarms properly installed throughout your home
and remember to test all of the alarms regularly and replace them at
least every 10 years. If you have children, consider installing a First Alert
Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm with voice and location technology
throughout your home, and especially in their bedroom. This alarm
will notify your child of an emergency, distinguishing between a re or
carbon monoxide incident, in a human voice as opposed to a regular
alarm. This is especially helpful if a re strikes at night. Studies have
shown children may have an easier time waking up to the sound of a
human voice rather than an alarm.
"Smoke alarms are designed to give early warning in case of re, and
making sure your home has properly installed and maintained alarms is
the best defense against one," said Tarsila Wey, director of marketing
for First Alert. "As far as CO is concerned, the only way to detect this
fatal gas is with a CO alarm, so have one installed on each level of the
home and near every sleeping area."
Plan. Practice. Repeat. Once your escape plan is nalized, your job
is not done. Gather your family together and put your plan in action.
Practice this plan at least twice a year, so if disaster strikes, your family
will feel condent in their ability to exit the home safely. To make the
drills as realistic as possible, conduct them both during the day and at
night.
"Planning ahead can save a life," added Wey. "Talk with your family to
make a plan that ts all of your needs."

Caring for the family caregiver:
Ways to manage your health and
wellbeing while supporting others
Caring for a loved one with a chronic illness is something millions of
Americans do every day. Whether it is a parent, spouse, extended
family member or friend, the stress of caring for another adult can
take a toll.
"I have to do absolutely everything for her," explains Anthony
Cowels, whose 71-year-old wife, Florence, was diagnosed with
multiple sclerosis in 1986. As he watched her disease progress,
his caregiver responsibilities grew. What's more, for some of the
years Cowels also cared for his elderly parents, compounding his
responsibilities.
"It has been a long journey of caregiving," says Cowels, 70. "I try not
to let it overwhelm me. I always look for ways to do better." Cowels
learned to care for both himself and his wife better through useful
tools, education and friendship and by joining a caregiver support
group. He says he can "interact with others who identify with my
situation."
Family caregiving: A growing trend
Cowels represents a growing number of Americans who care for
older or aging loved ones. About 41 million family caregivers in the
United States provided an estimated 34 billion hours of care to an
adult with limitations in daily activities in 2017, notes the AARP report
Valuing the Invaluable: 2019 Update. What's more, as the population
ages, caregiving demands are increasing while the pool of potential
caregivers is decreasing.
As the Valuing report states, "Americans will have more older
relatives or close friends to potentially care for than children in about
15 years. The U.S. Census Bureau projects that, by the year 2035,
adults ages 65 and older will outnumber children under the age of 18
for the rst time in U.S. history. This fundamental demographic shift
is the result of the aging of the U.S. population, increasing longevity,
and a declining birth rate. "
Caring for yourself
In addition to helping with self-care activities like bathing, dressing
and going to the bathroom, family caregivers today often perform
complex medical tasks, including wound care, giving injections and
handling medical equipment. The tasks that were once provided in
hospitals and health care clinics are increasingly the responsibility of
family and friends, who are often given little training or support.
While many family caregivers often report positive feelings in their
role such as a sense of purpose or connection with their loved one, it
often comes with feelings of being overwhelmed. Exhaustion, worry,
loneliness and nancial stress are common challenges caregivers
face. If you also work a full-time job, it can be even more dicult to
balance your needs and responsibilities.
While you may not achieve perfect balance, it is important to
prioritize your physical and mental wellbeing, so you can be there
for the person you care for. These rst steps can help you nd some
balance as you navigate your caregiver journey:
* Join a support group. Ask your health care provider about local
options. Community centers are another good resource. If you live in
a remote area or have diculties commuting, online support groups
are another useful way to connect with others in similar situations.
* Make time for yourself. When you care for another person and have
your own life demands, it can feel as though there is little time left in the
day for yourself. Even if it is just 15 minutes, make time to do something
you enjoy, such as walking or reading.
* Don't be afraid to ask for help. No one person can do it all. It takes
a team to care for someone, especially those with complex medical
conditions. You can start by asking your provider about local health
care resources and reach out to family and friends for assistance.
It is important for family caregivers to stay mentally and physically
healthy so they can provide the best care possible to the growing
number of people who need support. For helpful tips and caregiver
resources, visit www.aarp.org/caregiving.

Common causes and
treatments for sensitive teeth
Sponsored by Crest
If you've ever noticed sharp pain in your teeth when enjoying ice cream
or a cold or hot beverage, you probably experience some degree of
tooth sensitivity. When the temperature gets colder outside, even just
breathing in frosty air can trigger that pain. According to research, 1 in
every 2 adult Americans suers from some kind of tooth sensitivity.
What are the most common causes of tooth sensitivity, and how can you
help protect your teeth from discomfort?
Gum recession
There are several factors that can lead to gum recession - with one
of the contributors being gingivitis. This can lead to gingival recession
which, along with the loss of cementum, leads to exposure of dentin -
which leads to dental sensitivity.
Products like Crest Gum and Sensitivity Toothpaste can also help treat
gingivitis, which can ultimately lead to gum recession. Often when
people experience tooth sensitivity they reduce or stop brushing their
teeth regularly, which can just make the problem worse. Continue to
practice good oral care and consult your dentist if pain around the gum
line persists, since that could mean additional treatment for your gums
is warranted.
Crest and Oral-B Smile Council member Kareen Wilson, RDH, says,
"Even as a dental professional I have teeth sensitivity, so Crest Gum
and Sensitivity is the product I use and recommend for fast and eective
relief.
Enamel wear
The outer covering or shield of the tooth, known as enamel, can wear
down over time as well as from acidic food and drinks. Weakened
enamel and dentin can also mean exposing the microscopic tubules that
lead to dental nerves, so that anything touching that area causes pain.
Many people who experience tooth sensitivity nd themselves avoiding
foods and drinks that trigger their pain, like acidic citrus fruits and juices
or ice cold soda and hot coee. People shouldn't have to avoid their
favorite foods and drinks in fear of the tooth sensitivity that can come
with them.
You can help to safeguard your teeth from sensitivity by using a product
like new Crest Gum and Sensitivity Toothpaste, which wraps teeth in a
shield of protection, blocking tubules to provide all day protection. Most
people notice a dierence within three days, with twice daily brushing,
and are able to get back to enjoying their favorite treats - with reduced
sensitivity pain.
Tooth decay
If you are experiencing tooth decay, or cavities, those areas can
be overly sensitive. Sometimes the areas around old llings can
accumulate bacteria, which leads to further tooth problems and
sensitivity.
If tooth pain persists for more than a couple of days, especially when
you are not eating or drinking hot or cold items, you should visit your
dentist to be sure that you don't have a cavity that needs attention, or
an old lling that might need to be replaced. Or you may even have a
cracked tooth that needs to be seen by a dentist.
Dental procedures
For anyone who has undergone a recent dental procedure, whether a
simple lling, crown placement or something more involved like a root
canal, your teeth may experience sensitivity for some time afterward.
Ask your dentist what an expected time frame might be to expect
sensitivity after a procedure, and what to watch for if that sensitivity
doesn't go away. Persistent pain after a dental procedure could be a
sign of infection.
Tooth grinding
Your dentist can examine your teeth for signs that you may be grinding
them, as it can happen while you are asleep or otherwise unaware of
what you're doing.
A mouth guard or other strategy may help resolve this issue.
Brushing too hard
Sometimes using a hard-bristled brush, or simply using too much force
while brushing, can contribute to worn enamel, making tooth sensitivity
worse.
It's best to continue to brush your teeth regularly, but consider using a
soft-bristled toothbrush or electric toothbrush, and/or simply brush a little
more gently. Your dentist may be able to recommend a better toothbrush
for you to use.
While there can be many causes for your tooth sensitivity, there's no
reason you can't enjoy cold or hot foods and beverages without those
twinges of pain. With proper oral care practices, you should be able to
reduce or resolve tooth sensitivity for good.

sensitivity, visit lifeminute.tv/health/video/tooth-sensitivity-solutions.

After a while, bodies can grow accustomed to the
same exercise routine, often leading to stalled
results. If you nd yourself breezing through a
workout, it's time to switch it up and push your
limits. Varying your exercises can challenge your
mind and body, help burn more calories and
prevent boredom. If you like to run long distances,
try implementing sprint intervals. At the gym? Try
out new equipment or vary your reps. Challenge
your body and you may be surprised by the
results.
5) Take a break
The last way to maximize your tness routine
has nothing to do with the gym at all. In fact, it
requires you to skip the gym. Exercise provides
many health benets, but too many high-intensity
workouts can backre, potentially causing injury
from overuse and hindering your results. Allow
your body enough time to heal before hitting the
gym again and try to work active rest days into
your schedule, such as going for a light walk or
bike ride.
Keeping these tips in mind can help you make
the most of your tness routine and magnify your
eorts in the gym, on the track, in the pool or
wherever you choose to exercise. Above all, don't
hesitate to ask fellow gym-goers for help or to
make modications when something feels o.

5 ways to keep
your fitness
routine on track
AWhether you're hitting the gym to get
healthy, tone up or improve your overall
well-being, seeing results can be one
of the most satisfying feelings. Noticing
even the smallest change in the way you
feel or look is reason enough to lace up
your sneakers for another sweat session.
When results seem to plateau or
schedules get busy, don't give up! Keep
the below tips in mind to help maximize
your tness routine and stay on track.
1) Find a workout buddy
Instead of ying solo, bring a friend so
you can encourage each other during
your workouts. Exercising with a buddy
can breed healthy competition, but also
hold you accountable. To help maximize
the impact, try to pick a partner that is
on the same tness level as you and
shares similar goals - you will want to be
able to increase your intensity level and
challenge each other as a team.
2) Fuel up
An active lifestyle requires proper
nutrition. When regularly exercising, your
body needs fuel for optimal performance
and proper recovery. Before a workout,
opt for healthy and easily digestible
carbohydrates like brown rice, quinoa,
whole-grain bread and pasta, fruits
and vegetables to give you energy.
Afterward, try a protein-packed snack like
Emergen-C Protein Fuel and Superfoods.
With 15 grams of organic plant-based
protein and two full servings of 14
superfoods, the protein and superfood
powder blend can help you make the
most of your active time by providing the
wholesome nourishment you need, along
with supporting your natural defenses
with a high potency serving of vitamin C.
3) Head to the weights
If your tness goals include improving
body composition and losing weight, you
may want to introduce strength training
into your regimen. While exercises such
as walking, running and cycling can do
wonders for your cardiovascular health
and help burn calories, strength training
with weights can elevate your metabolism
for a longer period - meaning your body
will continue burning calories even after a
workout. Plus, strength training can target
and tone hard-to-reach muscles, improve
balance and help protect your bones.

Tips and tricks for serving wine
with holiday meals
The holidays are fast approaching, as are lots of festive meals to plan, prepare
and serve. How can you reduce your own stress, and guarantee that you'll
have happy guests throughout the holidays? A few simple tips for choosing
versatile wines - and how to serve them - will not only please everyone,
but will make everything about your get-togethers easier and more fun.
Pairing delicious wines to serve along with your meals does not have to be
complicated.
Here are a few tips to help you choose and serve wine for a successful holiday
party or dinner.
Keep it simple
Choose just one good red wine and one good white wine varietal to serve
during your cocktail or dinner party, if you want to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
You could choose another varietal or two for guests to sample, if you're
feeling adventurous, but having two contrasting options is a great start, and
sometimes all you need.
Since holiday meals can be heavy (or at least plentiful!), choose wines that are
not overly rich or full-bodied. Instead, look for lighter wines that are fruity and
bright, with soft tannins, that provide a nice complement to a big, rich meal.
For example, Sanford Winery oers popular options in both chardonnay and
pinot noir that can be a perfect duo to serve your guests.
Oering a refreshing fruit and cheese plate after dinner gives guests the
chance to savor the last sips of wine before dessert and coee are served.
Don't let the "rules" of pairing wine and food throw you o - keep both a red
wine and a white wine on the table and let guests experiment for themselves
and decide what they prefer!
Wine serving tricks
Since the temperature of the room and your guests' hands will warm the wine
glasses throughout the meal, it's a good idea to chill both red and white wines
for a while before serving.
Create fun, holiday-themed DIY wine charms for each guest, especially if
you're serving buet-style or enjoying a cocktail hour before dinner. Check
your local craft store or websites like Pinterest for fun ideas.
Each 750 ML bottle contains approximately 5 glasses of wine, so plan your
wine supply accordingly.
Only ll each guest's glass one-half to two-thirds full, to give the wine room to
breathe.
Wine left in the bottle? Freeze leftover wine in ice cube trays, then you'll
have ready-to-use "wine ice cubes" for recipes that require cooking with wine
another day or a avorful option to chill down your next glass of wine without
diluting it.
Let wine do double duty
Optimize and harmonize avors by cooking a dish that
incorporates the same varietal of wine your guests will be
drinking.
For example, a recipe for Citrus and Garlic Roasted Turkey uses
pinot noir to create a sweet and tangy sauce along with fresh
cranberries, rhubarb and tangerines. Visit sanfordwinery.com/
recipe/citrus-and-garlic-roasted-turkey for the full recipe.
Whether you're using a red wine or white wine in your cooking,
don't opt for an inferior "cooking wine," but use the same quality
wine you plan to serve during the meal. Because the alcohol
cooks out of the food you're preparing, what's left is the avor of
the wine - and that will make a big dierence to the avor of your
nished dish.
Holiday entertaining does not have to be overly complicated.
Going for avors you enjoy and oering your guests a few options
in terms of food and wine will result in a successful meal or party,
every time. What really counts is relaxing and enjoying the meal
and the wine together. (BPT)
