NASAL SPRAYS Have a story to share? Need a question answered? contactus@essexmedia.group When heading to the pharmacy to pick up a nasal spray to treat congestion, it’s important to know the difference between non-medicated nasal saline sprays and medicated nasal decongestant sprays. Saline nasal sprays, which can be used up to six times a day and are not addictive, create added moisture that reduces thick nasal secretions to help remove infection-causing agents. On the other hand, as their name indicates, medicated nasal decongestant sprays decongest swollen nasal membranes and clear nasal passages almost immediately after they are used. They are useful for treating the early stages of a common cold or viral infection. However, they should only be used for 3-5 days in succession. Prolonged use can cause “rebound” congestion and dependency. Find our Pets of the week and others at neas.org Medications like nasal sprays do not lose their potential to cause complications when they move from prescription to OTC, even if the commercials do not mention the side effects. To be a smart consumer, check with the pharmacist about possible adverse reactions to any drug before you use it. For more information, please call or visit VILLAGE PHARMACY in the Colonial Shopping Center (781-334-3133). For your convenience, we offer free prescription delivery five days a week and scheduled weekend deliveries upon request. HINT: Saline nasal sprays are a good first step for allergy sufferers because they have no side effects. Colonial Shopping Center • 590 Main St. Lynnfield, MA 01940 • 781-334-3133

FEBRUARY 15, 2018 WEEKLYNEWS.NET - 978-532-5880 7 KIDS YOGA The eight paths of yoga Pet of the week When many hear the word “yoga” they think of a physical practice that includes a lot of bendy poses. While this can be true there are more advantages to yoga that helps us with our everyday lives. Have you heard the phrase “Living yoga off the mat?” Well, that is what I teach to my yoga kids. The practice of yoga is over 5,000 years old and while it includes a physical practice, there is a philosophy of yoga known as The Eight Limbed Path. These written yoga principles were established over 2,000 years ago and are a guide to live a healthy, moral and ethical life. The eight limbs are: the yamas, niyamas, asanas, pranayama, pratyahara, dharana, dyana Samadhi. Yamas are moral restraints. Non-violence-being kind and considerate to yourself and all living things, avoiding mean thoughts and actions. Honesty-living truthfully in words and actions, no lying or holding grudges. Non-stealing-do not take what does not belong to you, be generous (which includes sharing). Moderation-avoid over indulgence, everything good in moderation, knowing your needs vs. wants. Non-grasping-be grateful for what you have. Niyamas are rules. Purity-be clean with yourself inside and out, clean your room, respect your belongings, say nice things. Contentment-be appreciative, see the good in situations and things, be positive. Self-discipline-work hard and finish what you start, have self-control and practice will power. Self-reflection- learn from your mistakes, study hard. Asanas are postures and poses. Downward facing dog, warrior, and tree. They teach us to be flexible with our bodies, minds and hearts! Pranayama is the breath control and awareness. Prana means vitality or energy, this is where we unite the body and mind to create mental focus and increase energy. Breath work helps us to respond vs. react. Pratyahara is the inward focus of awareness. It is the practice of mindfulness or what we call being present in each moment and paying attention to our surroundings Dharana is the practice of meditation. By focusing on an object we rest our minds. Samadhi is a state of balance. This is achieved by observing the first seven steps; we can obtain a balanced state of being, better focus and control in our daily lives off the mat. Sharon Marrama, owner of Here Comes the Sun Yoga for Kids is a children’s yoga instructor at several local schools and studios including Solstice Power at Market Street in Lynnfield. She holds a certificate in Teen Coaching and writes children’s books spreading sunshine along the way. One-year old Dante is a local kitty and he is looking forward to an active home. Dante enjoys climbing up cat trees, looking out windows and batting soft toys around. Dante can be choosy about which cats or kittens he would like to be friends with. He can also be quite independent at times, often deciding if he wants attention or if he wants to be left alone. When he enjoys attention, he really enjoys it, allowing himself to be petted while rubbing against legs. He is up-todate with vaccines and has been neutered. Dante is available at the Northeast Animal Shelter located in Salem, MA. If you are interested in meeting him, visiting hours are Monday-Friday 10-8 and weekends 10-6.
