healthy minds, healthy bodies, healthy businesses<br />

Dear Readers,<br />

Your health is the driving force behind everything you<br />

do. When you are healthy, you are better able to take care <strong>of</strong><br />

what’s important: Your family, your business, your place in the<br />

community.<br />

To point you in the right direction, the <strong>Chamber</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Commerce</strong><br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>Eastern</strong> <strong>Connecticut</strong>’s Health Care Council has created a<br />

<strong>directory</strong> <strong>of</strong> local wellness programs. This listing will ensure that<br />

access to these valuable resources is right at your fingertips.<br />

The <strong>directory</strong> includes listings <strong>of</strong> fitness centers, walking and<br />

biking trails, farmers' markets and hospitals and health care<br />

programs, among others. We strongly encourage every one <strong>of</strong><br />

you to familiarize yourself with this <strong>directory</strong>.<br />

If you are a business owner, you know that promoting<br />

employee wellness will help your staff stay healthy, which in<br />

turn will improve your bottom line. If you are an employee,<br />

you know that staying healthy makes all the difference in your<br />

performance and ultimately, the way you provide for yourself<br />

and your family.<br />

So please take a moment and browse through the listing.<br />

Visit a natural food store, join a fitness center, try yoga or bring<br />

your bike to a new trail. Your body will love you for it.<br />

As always, please contact the <strong>of</strong>fice <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Chamber</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Commerce</strong><br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>Eastern</strong> <strong>Connecticut</strong> for any assistance you may need.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Tony Sheridan<br />

There is no wisdom<br />

in waiting.<br />

An important message for parents <strong>of</strong><br />

t een-aged children regarding wisdom<br />

t eeth, extraction and recovery.<br />

We understand – it’s hard enough to get your teen to the dinner table, let alone to an oral<br />

surgeon to evaluate their developing wisdom teeth. But this is one time where there is<br />

no wisdom in waiting.<br />

Just because your child’s wisdom teeth are not visible, painful or obviously impacted now, there is<br />

no guarantee that they won’t be in the near future. A future that that might occur at college while<br />

miles away, during SAT exams, while on vacation…or any time you can imagine that will be as<br />

inconvenient as possible.<br />

It’s not just about the timing and convenience, it’s also about the recovery. Early wisdom tooth<br />

removal results in less pain and quicker recovery. Studies show that good oral health may prevent<br />

future medical disorders. Protect your investment if your child has had or currently has orthodontic s.<br />

There is so little we can control about our kids’ future. It’s good to know that we can take one sim ple<br />

step to keep them healthy and smiling.<br />

How many steps do you think you walk each day?<br />

Experts recommend increasing your daily activity<br />

toward reaching the 10,000 steps per day for lifelong<br />

health. If you have an average stride, that means<br />

about 5 miles per day.<br />

If you are sedentary, you may only be averaging 2000<br />

to 3000 steps per day. But, increasing your activity has<br />

many benefits including weight control, improved blood<br />

pressure and cholesterol levels, decrease in the risk <strong>of</strong><br />

cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease.<br />
