Yoga Heals Vet


(This poem is inspired by a true story)

I was a disabled Vet

Doctors told me I'd never walk normally again

Chronic back and knee pain

Made me unable to work out like I used to

For fifteen years, I suffered in this living hell

I ate too much and gained a lot of weight

Then I discovered yoga

Many teachers turned me away

But one believed in me even though he did not

Know me - I fell many times

I just got back up and tried again

By persistance and perseverance, I gained back

My mobility and lost a hundred forty pounds

Best of all, I can now walk as well as run!

Free Don’t Lose Sleep Over Stress Webinar


October 21
12:00 pm – 12:45 pm PST.

Many adults who have sleep problems due to stress and anxiety say that their sleep problems contribute to an increase of stress or anxiety in their daily lives. Sleepless nights can affect your ability to concentrate and stay focused the next day. Health Net is offering a telephone/webinar (using a toll free number) that will identify how stress can affect your body and sleep patterns. The monthly webinar is offered to all Health Net members as well as non-Health Net insured individuals.

During the presentation you will also explore ways to overcome stress, learn relaxation techniques, and tips for a better nights sleep. We will also be offering you the opportunity to enroll in Health Net’s November 20-day Healthy Challenge Series – My Life in Balance, where participants who complete the challenge will be entered into a complimentary raffle drawing for a $25 gift card. Details will be shared the end of the webinar.

Walk to School Day


It's Walk to School Day on 10/7

School Day is a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. It began in 1997 as a one-day event. Over time, this event has become part of a movement for year-round safe routes to school and a celebration – with record breaking participation – each October. Today, thousands of schools across America participate.

Avoid traffic, bike or walk if you live close to your school. I wish I live near my work so I can walk there.
