Summer Sights, Sounds

and Celebrations

NO HIDDEN FEES

Summertime. It seems like it

arrives and then is gone all too soon. The long

days, the warm air, the outdoor activities and

celebrations that abound all throughout town;

these are the days when families and friends,

young and old, come together to enjoy each

other’s company and cherish the time spent

together, at a slower pace, while taking in the

beautiful Northwest.

Picnics in the park, a day out on the water,

hiking the local trails, shopping the local

farmers markets and attending much-loved

community events … the summer months are

meant for making memories.

As the kids are out of school enjoying the

freedom of no schedules, a break from sports

and extracurriculars, this is an exciting time

for our youth, while us parents still find

ourselves trying to juggle our careers and

spend more time with our families. Too bad

there’s no summer break for the adults—

and for those who do have time off in the

summer to enjoy what’s most important, you

are blessed.

See the summer through the eyes of a

child, and make the time to explore and get

dirty. Splash in the water. Take a nap. Eat

watermelon. Build a sandcastle or mud pie.

Get messy. Ignore the laundry and the dishes.

Skip making the beds. Family is forever. Make

this summer one where family comes first.

HERE’S WHAT ARTIFICIAL TURF CAN

DO FOR YOUR LAWN

is the grass

greener?

18

18 SANDPOINT LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


y JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

SANDPOINT LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022

Over the years, since the

inception of Astroturf in

1965, man has struggled

to come to grips with the

ultimate question: Is the grass

“greener” when it’s artificial? Let’s dive into the pros

and cons of going with synthetic grass versus

genuine grass to answer this question.

Artificial grass was first used in

Major League Baseball in the

Houston Astrodome in 1966,

replacing the grass field

used when the stadium

first opened a year earlier.

Artificial grass stands

up to heavy use, thus

the reason it’s used on

many sports fields. It

requires no irrigation

or trimming. Domed,

covered and partially

covered stadiums may

require artificial grass

or turf because of the

difficulty of getting

grass enough sunlight to

stay healthy.

As for the pros of installing

artificial grass for your front

and backyard spaces, most

people use artificial grass because it

requires little to no maintenance. It also

requires no irrigation, trimming or gaspowered

lawn equipment, and with growing

concerns about water conservation and healthrelated

issues surrounding fertilizers and pesticides, artificial

grass is increasingly becoming the first choice for homeowners.

Dog owners can rejoice that synthetic turf is great at preventing even

the most persistent puppies from digging, while being exceptionally

stain and fade resistant. Not only does it stand up to pet abuse,

but your lawn edges can stay crisp and look sharp over the years.

Synthetic grasses come in different varieties of colors, lengths,

densities and finishes, improving the aesthetics of your home while

simultaneously upping your home’s curb appeal.

Another key advantage of artificial turf is the longevity and durability

of modern synthetic grasses. Until recent years, the warranty offered

on most turf products only covered a few years. However, with the

recent developments in the artificial grass industry, warranties for

the longevity of some lawns can reach up to 25 years.

come to the

artificial side

With the longevity and reliability of artificial grass, this home-use lawn

product can come with a high-priced barrier of entry. On average, a

homeowner will spend between $6 to $12 per square foot, versus 40 cents

per square foot for traditional sod. You will also need to add infill to

ensure that individual grasses stay upright and do not get matted down.

There are wide varieties of infills available including rubber, sand, Zeofill,

Durafill, Envirofill and TCool Infill. The most widely used type of infill

would be crumb rubber for most stadiums and sports arenas. Made from

recycled tires, it provides good shock absorption qualities.

The second most widely used infill is silica sand. Sand is the least

expensive infill and tends to be cooler in direct sunlight while absorbing

moisture and eliminating some odors naturally. Silica sand infill is easy

to come by and spread, while like any day at the beach the silica sand can

be jagged and painful to roll around on. It may also just hitch a ride to the

bottom of your shoes and make its way into your home.

Another popular infill that people use for their artificial turf is ZeoFill or

ZeoLite Infill. This infill tends to be the least popular for its lightweight

properties but most popular for eliminating pet waste smells. Zeolite is

also very porous, which helps keep your turf cooler in direct sunlight

when compared to most rubber and sand infill options. Regardless of

which one you go with, they all have their pros and cons. If you have pets

or children, you will most likely want to get an

infill that keeps your grass cool, orderly and

odorless to help keep your artificial lawn

pristine.

While you may be conserving

resources like water with an

artificial lawn, synthetic grass

will heat up exponentially

in direct exposure to

sunlight. While artificial

grass is non-flammable,

you don’t want it to be

extremely hot to the

touch. One solution to

the problem is to use

an infill designed to

cool off your grass and

make sure that it’s fine to

walk on with your bare

feet. Some infills (like

the TCool Infill) are also

designed with technology

that captures water from

THE GRASS MIGHT JUST BE GREENER

ON THE ARTIFICIAL SIDE.

rainfall, dew, or irrigation and stores it for later use. As the sun’s radiation heats the turf,

an infill can help release moisture, keeping the surface cool for up to four days from a

single moisture event.

While infill is a great way to keep your lawn looking its best, it needs to be replaced a

few times throughout the life of the turf. The most infill can cost between $8 to $12 per

bag, and one bag typically covers about 30 square feet. Replacing your infill can be done

yourself, or you can use a service from a professional installer if time is more of an issue

than money.

When considering the cost versus time and convenience of an artificial lawn, it can be

a great investment that will outlast a traditional (organic) lawn. The amount of time

it takes to take care of the soil, plant seed, or install a traditional lawn will be saved.

Though the initial cost of installation may be higher than anything else you’ll find on

the market, the pros of low maintenance and longevity of your lawn make the pros of

purchasing an artificial turf lawn far outweigh the negatives of purchasing and installing

your lawn.

With the onset of new and improved technologies, including processes to increase

the clarity and vibrance of one’s artificial lawn, the grass might just be greener on the

artificial side. Of course, you are free to make that judgment for yourself.

making

old new

again

Seeing the beauty

in antique pieces

by RACHEL KELLY

Just because it’s old doesn’t mean it’s done. If anything,

it means that it’s stood the test of time. As styles

have gone in and out, there are some pieces that

stand out as being classic. It could be the lines of the

piece that never go out of style, or its lasting practical

use. Perhaps it’s that the object seems to carry with it a

memory, a story. Maybe that table used to center in your

grandmother’s kitchen, bearing the responsibility of

feeding 20 farmhands for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Maybe that jewelry box once held your mother’s wedding

ring. Perhaps that hat stand was bought for your great

grandfather by his childhood friend. Maybe those boots

were made for walking, and there’s still plenty of journey

left in them. Whatever the reason, whatever the story,

here are six ways to give a new look to your favorite

old pieces.

Change Your Perspective.

Sometimes the best way to bring life to old things is to change what

holds it. Whether this means giving those vintage pictures a new

frame, placing an antique piece on a floating shelf, or placing it in an

unconventional location. A great example would be plates hung on

the wall or door handles used as hooks. There are lots of ways to keep

unused pieces that are no longer needed for everyday use.

Change Its Purpose.

The jug that used to carry water from the outdoor well just might make

a great umbrella stand. The container that used to carry snuff might be

great for pills. The door that used to hang in your family’s 100-year-old

shed might be great as a backdrop for hooks that you can hang your

bags from. The large picture frame might look great as a headboard, or

the ladder might double as a blanket holder.

A Splash of Color.

Don’t be afraid to go bold with your old pieces. An old milking

stool or basket can provide that much-needed pop of color in

an otherwise earth tone (or white) home. Bright colors such as

sun yellow, teal, fire engine red, aqua … whatever you like best.

Everybody needs something that when they look at it, they can’t

help but smile. Sometimes a little color is all you need.

Give It a Wash.

This is not meant to be a literal wash, although a clean slate is always

best to work with. With old things comes a lot of wood color, which

can mean a lot of different shades of wood in one place. Dipping

a damp rag in white paint, and then rubbing the white along the

surface of your old antique can preserve a classic look while allowing

it to be more neutral.

Strip It Down.

Some pieces really do need to retain their wood color to preserve

their authenticity. However, as previously noted, a whole bunch of

wood colors in one space may not be preferable. Stripping your

old pieces down to their bare wood, and then re-staining them in

matching stain brings much-needed congruence to a place filled

with old pieces from different eras. If it’s got to be wood color, it

might as well match.

Re-fit and Polish.

There are some things that are simply not made the

way they used to be. Like those big wing-backed

wooden upholstered sofa chairs, or hundred-yearold

chandeliers. There are some things that are right

just the way they are, however, they may not be quite

perfect as they are. In such a case, the best thing to

do is to reupholster or shine to perfection. Some

things just have good bones but need a little shine to

highlight their original glory.

Nonprofit Celebrates

20 Years

Panhandle Alliance for Education continues its

mission to serve students and teachers

by JILLIAN CHANDLER

“We have countless stories of students

who have been impacted by a grant

or a program funded by PAFE. and

have gone on to pursue their dreams

with either successful careers in the trades or in universities

and then on to professions of their choosing,” affirms Amy

Longanecker, executive director for Panhandle Alliance

for Education.

With a mission to promote excellence in education and

broad-based support for the Lake Pend Oreille School

District, Panhandle Alliance for Education is proud to be

celebrating 20 years.

Founded in 2002 by Bill Berg and Mindy Cameron, PAFE

has been instrumental in education, creating educational

opportunities for students and teachers that would not have

existed without its inception.

The inspiration began when Bill and Mindy came to

Sandpoint back in the late ‘80s. They recognized that schools

lacked needed resources and graduation rates were low.

Having previously been involved in an education foundation

in Seattle, they were called to start something similar here in

Sandpoint that would benefit the schools and the students.

Thus, Panhandle Alliance for Education was born.

“A quality school district (as well as affordable housing) is

a must if we want to attract families and employees for our

local businesses and health-care institutions,” says Mindy.

“I’ve always been interested in education and believe public

schools are the cornerstone of democracy, where children in a

community go to school together regardless of socioeconomic

status. Our goal with PAFE is to get the community and

businesses engaged and care about schools.”

One of PAFE’s first supporters was Georgia Simmons,

former president and CMO of Coldwater Creek. A key

“A thriving community relies

on a high-performing school

district, and education

funding from our federal,

state and local levels can

only do so much.”

player in hosting PAFE’s first fundraiser, she engaged the

community for support, as she understood firsthand the

importance of having a strong school district in order to

attract high-quality candidates to Sandpoint.

“A thriving community relies on a high-performing

school district, and education funding from our federal,

state and local levels can only do so much,” shares Amy.

“We have been told time and again that PAFE extends

that funding by giving teachers and school leadership

resources and tools they wouldn’t otherwise have.”

So how does PAFE promote excellence in education? This

is executed through three key channels:

Strategic initiatives: Each year, these initiatives are

chosen in collaboration with school district leadership—

and with the criteria that they have a long-term impact

on students and district-wide execution with measurable

outcomes. In 2021, these included professional learning

communities for teachers, musical instruments for sixthgraders

in the district to experience playing, and career

connections videos for high school students.

Early childhood literacy programs: Reading programs

that support children from birth through first grade,

these programs include Born to Read, READY! For

Kindergarten and Learning with Lucky.

Teacher grants: These grants allow teachers to expand

learning in their classrooms with innovative programs

(838 teacher grants, totaling more than $2 million, have

been awarded since its inception).

PAFE is proud of what they’ve been able to accomplish

these past 20 years, acknowledging the importance of

collaborating with local businesses, the school district

and supporters. And the accomplishments speak

for themselves:

• PAFE is looked at by Idaho Business for Education, a

group of nearly 250 business leaders across the state of

Idaho, as an example of what can be achieved when local

citizens and businesses work closely with school leaders.

• With the help of many PAFE science grants through the

years, Southside Elementary became the home to Idaho’s

first STEAM SmartLab and is one of six schools in the

state to be STEM Designated Schools.

Sandpoint High School’s post-secondary guidance

counselor was hired in 2008 as a result of a PAFE Teacher

Grant. SHS was one of few schools in the state to offer

these services to students. The district saw immense

value and began funding the position. The impact of this

role has had ripple effects in the 14 years since.

PAFE always welcomes and encourages the community’s

support and involvement to continue, and further,

their mission. To find out more about Panhandle

Alliance for Education, and to make a donation, visit

PanhandleAlliance.org. Be sure to subscribe to their

quarterly newsletter and/or sign up for PAFE’s READY!

For Kindergarten classes.

For the past two decades, Panhandle Alliance for

Education has been changing the lives of students right

here in Sandpoint, and helping to create a brighter future.

And with continued support of our local community,

they will be able to continue their mission for many years

to come.

As Amy states, “Our work will never be done because our

students will always need support.”

teacher

of the year

by JOSHUA NISHIMOTO

SHERRY MITCHELL

SAGLE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

This year the honor of Teacher of the

Year 2021-2022 has been bestowed

upon Title 1 teacher Sherry

Mitchell of Sagle Elementary

School. Current reading teacher and previous

fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade teacher,

Mitchell has a 32-year history of teaching

(minus an eight-year hiatus she took while

raising her children).

“I originally majored in wildlife biology,”

Sherry said, “but later changed my major to

education after conducting nature walks for

elementary students through the Audubon

Society in Maine, where I started my

teaching career.”

With an extensive career in teaching a

plethora of subjects, Sherry said that she most

enjoys the relationships that she has built

with her students. She enjoys the process of

making those connections and then starting

over again.

“I also challenge myself by trying to learn the

names of every student in the school,” she

said. “So, when I see them in the hallway, I

can greet them.”

Sherry has no one experience that has

made her teaching career memorable, but

a multitude of experiences. In her current

position, she can work with the same students

year after year, which enables her to keep up

with them to ensure that they keep going

strong in their learning.

“It is so rewarding to see them grow,” Sherry

added. “Every child and the school year is

unique, and that is what makes teaching

so interesting.”

During Sherry’s historic career, she has

learned many unique and interesting facts

about her students and teachers, but one fact

may surprise you. “Something that might

surprise parents or the general public about

the teaching profession is that teachers think

of their students as ‘their kids,’” she said. “And

we learn as much from them as they do from

us. To teach is to learn.”

While teaching is Sherry’s passion, in her free

time, she likes to go camping, especially near

the ocean. She is also an avid bird watcher

and thrift shopper. And while learning from

the ocean to the birds, if there’s one life lesson

that she could pass on to her students, Sherry

said, “It’s perseverance.”

“Learning to read is hard work, and becoming

a fluent reader takes time,” she added. “I

love celebrating with students as they see

their progress along the way. If you have

perseverance, you can make it through life’s

challenges.”

ETHAN BUTLER

A DYNAMIC LEADER, PLAYER AND COMPETITOR

Ethan Butler has left his mark on

Sandpoint High School. As a multidisciplined

student-athlete, Ethan

successfully played both baseball and

basketball for the entirety of his Sandpoint

High School career.

He has not only been a starting player at the

varsity level since his freshman year, but he

has also earned multiple All-League honors,

helped lead the baseball team to back-toback

IEL Championships, back-to-back state

tournament appearances, and helped lead the

team to its first state tournament wins in 15

years, while performing other duties as team

captain for both sports his senior year.

“To me, that is one of my best accomplishments,”

Ethan said. “Being a team captain has allowed

me to mentor the underclassmen and help

them grow, which allows me to grow as well.”

With a passion for wildlife that was instilled

and hello to post-secondary education.

“My main career interest is wildlife

management,” he said. “I want to be able

to help preserve and enhance the forests

and bodies of water, so they are around for

future generations.”

Whether it’s his love for wildlife or sports,

Ethan’s passion for both speaks volumes.

Even when he suffered a torn labrum during

his sophomore year and was sidelined for the

entirety of that season from both baseball

and basketball, Butler didn’t give up. He did

everything he could to get back into the game.

are no shortcuts in sports, and if you want to

be the best you can be, it takes time, a lot of

hard work and perseverance.”

Hard work is something that Ethan is

accustomed to. Whether working hard on

recovery from injury or working hard to

accomplish his goals, some of his biggest

lessons have come from the sports he loves.

“Everything you want is on the other side of

hard work,” he said. “In all sports, there is a big

commitment of time from the player and their

family in order to excel and for the athlete to

outstanding teammate,” said Head Coach

Chase Tigert. “He has left his footprint

he has accomplished throughout his high

school career—both in the classroom and on

the field.”

The Festival at Sandpoint returns

with an impressive lineup

42 SANDPOINT LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


Each year as summer kicks into full swing and the busy tourist

season returns to Sandpoint, locals and visitors alike anticipate

one of Sandpoint’s favorite annual traditions: The Festival at

Sandpoint. Celebrating its 39th annual season this year, the

Festival has long been a beloved local event that unites local and regional

audiences in an intimate outdoor setting in small-town Sandpoint.

“The Festival is unique in the sense that as a nonprofit we bring large

acts to a small town in North Idaho, which is rare for a rural area. We

can accomplish this with immense support from our community. There

is a sense of pride and ownership in The Festival at Sandpoint and its

community,” says Executive Director Ali Baranski.

Traditionally, The Festival hosts eight different concerts during its

roughly week-long period, but this year the team is hosting 10 different

concerts from July 28 to August 7, and the lineup promises to impress.

Headliners include The Beach Boys, KALEO, Lindsey Stirling, Gregory

Alan Isakov and Pink Martini, with a host of other impressive artists.

“It has been so exciting to see our community’s excitement for the highcaliber

acts we have lined up for this season. This season’s lineup is like

no other, and we can’t wait for Festival season!” adds Baranski.

The Festival returned last year after a brief hiatus during the COVID

pandemic, and was a big success with a record number of ticket sales—

which The Festival is on track to beat this year, she adds. “Last year

came with some trial and error, however, we received immense support

from our staff, board of directors, donors, volunteers and community

that allowed us to have the time and resources we needed to get The

Festival back on its feet,” explains Baranski, who served her first season

as executive director in 2021.

Since last season, The Festival has added two full-time hires and five

summer interns, allowing them to frontload a lot of the planning, giving

them more time to fine-tune the systems that make for a smooth and

enjoyable Festival season.

Paul Gunter has joined the team as the full-time production and

education manager, making venue planning easier and also creating

new educational programs to share with the community, like the Pre-K

and they will be offering both in-person debit and credit card

ordering and mobile orders through the Noble app. However,

to give everyone a bit more space, the bar will be moving to the

lakeside concessions building this year. This year The Festival

welcomes Adia Burton as the new Festival Street chairperson,

responsible for coordinating all of the food booths.

Throwing such an impressive event takes a lot of work from

both employees and volunteers, and The Festival is always

looking for volunteers for everything from bartending and

checking tickets to selling merchandise and more. “Locals

should consider volunteering and give back to the community

in a fun environment and while enjoying a concert!” encourages

Baranski. A volunteer application is available on the website for

interested volunteers.

Overall this year, concert venues have seen a record number

of sales as concertgoers are eager to get out and return to

doing the things they love, and The Festival at Sandpoint is

no different. Tickets are selling fast—particularly for some of

the most popular performances, so make sure to book your

tickets early. The Festival recommends buying tickets directly

from the website (they use ETix as their ticketing platform), as

many ticket resellers online are selling shows for higher than

market value.

ADVENTURES THAT AWAIT

ACROSS NORTH IDAHO AND

WASHINGTON

by TAYLOR SHILLAM

SANDPOINT LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022


Across the Northwest, endless summer adventure awaits.

The opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy the season

across Washington state and into North Idaho are

what make local summers so unforgettable. Whether you’re

planning for a summer day, a weekend getaway, or just a few

hours, the following highlights of Northwest summers are

available to you all season long.

Lake Coeur d’Alene

A top destination for locals and tourists alike, the beautiful

Lake Coeur d’Alene offers countless ways to truly enjoy

lake life. Surrounded by expansive parks, the City Beach,

numerous lakeside hiking trails across Tubbs Hill, and the

renowned Coeur d’Alene Resort, Lake Coeur d’Alene and its

surrounding resort town is a summer destination not to miss!

Priest Lake

Located just 80 miles northeast of Spokane in the Northern

Idaho panhandle, Priest Lake offers clear blue waters and

beautiful summer scenery that sets the stage for endless

summer fun.

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing lakeside getaway

or an active weekend of boating, hiking and water sports,

Priest Lake has it all, in a prime location surrounded by the

Selkirk Mountains. Visitors can rent or bring a boat to fish,

wakeboard, tube, waterski, and more, or take a hike on one of

the many trails winding through the Selkirks.

Priest Lake lodging includes a long list of cabin rentals and

comfortable accommodations to make a complete getaway

out of your visit.

Western Washington Waterfronts

Surrounding the Puget Sound are countless miles of stunning

shoreline views to explore. Summer adventures on the water

are plentiful in the area, including Tacoma’s 2-mile-long

Ruston Way Waterfront, which offers a selection of park area

boasting views of Commencement Bay and plenty of room

to walk, bike, skate, and kayak. Gig Harbor offers a peaceful

combination of outdoor recreation and heritage, with tours

offered by boat or kayak, plus opportunities to grow your

maritime knowledge at the Gig Harbor History Museum’s

Waterfront History Walk.

Palouse Falls

The result of glacial floods from many years ago, Washington’s

Lake Coeur d’Alene

The Route of the Hiawatha

official state waterfall is a worthy drive from those in Spokane or

Western Washington. Known as a must-see waterfall in the area, the

drive to Palouse Falls can include some of the best scenic driving in

Washington, making the trip a full day’s adventure!

The Route of the Hiawatha

The Route of the Hiawatha is a 15-mile-long family friendly trail,

which can be enjoyed by a wide range of people of all ages and all

experience levels. It begins with a trip through the St. Paul Pass

Tunnel, a highlight of the Hiawatha that follows the crest of the

Bitterroot Mountains near Lookout Pass Ski Area.

The Hiawatha trail is mostly downhill, with shuttle buses available

for transport, making it a low-intensity journey. Open from May

27 through September 18, the season for the Hiawatha trail offers a

wide window of time to enjoy its experience.

Centennial Trail

An easily accessible 40-mile-long paved trail, the Centennial Trail

spans Idaho and Washington, including downtown Spokane,

Kendall Yards, Mirabeau Park, and Nine Mile Falls, with 18 marked

trailheads and diverse terrain. The 23-mile North Idaho portion

extends from the state line to Coeur d’Alene’s Higgens Point.

Visitors can walk, jog, skate or cycle along the paved trail, with each

trailhead leading to a variety of routes and park lands.

Cushman Trail and Sehmel Homestead Park

Gig Harbor’s nearly 6.2-mile Cushman Trail offers paved paths for

walking and biking, numerous trail-side amenities, and access to

various parks, including the Sehmel Homestead Park. The 98-acre

park located northwest of downtown Gig Harbor includes multiple

baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, an artificial turf soccer

field, picnic areas, an outdoor amphitheater, a natural heritage

garden, an accessible Boundless Playground, and countless more

ways to enjoy the summer sun!

Silver Mountain Resort

Kellogg, Idaho’s Silver Mountain Resort offers summer fun well after

ski season! Promising “world-class recreation,” Silver Mountain

Resort offers the Silver Rapids Indoor Waterpark, outdoor hot tubs,

the Galena Ridge Golf Course, over 35 biking trails, and a scenic

gondola ride on North America’s longest (3.1-mile) gondola!

Whether you’re bringing the whole family or a special someone, Silver

Mountain’s seasonal events and packages offer a bit of everything in

one place. Enjoy a summer date night with a highlighted seasonal

event, Ride & Dine held every Friday throughout the summer. The

package includes a gondola ride, live music, and a mountaintop

barbecue meal.

Mt. Rainier National Park

The iconic Mount Rainier is surrounded by picturesque natural

park land, offering opportunities for hiking, mountain climbing,

the boat.”

and scenic drives. With 240

miles of hiking trails and walking

paths to explore, Mt. Rainier offers

an experience for the entire family. It is

visited by thousands every season, inviting

all ages to climb, camp, fish, and more.

Parasailing

The Pacific Northwest offers adventure and views from

above in the form of parasailing! Often described as a

peaceful experience, parasailing involves soaring in a parachute

while being gently towed by boat. Tacoma’s Pacific Parasail is known for taking guests high

above Commencement Bay in an adventure marked with signature bright red parasails.

“Experience the quiet, peaceful beauty of the South Puget Sound at altitudes that rival

the Space Needle,” Pacific Parasail states, offering views of both Seattle towers and marine

wildlife.

Parasailing is also available from Coeur d’Alene Parasail, offering views of lake Coeur

d’Alene from 800 feet in the air. Take off and land right from the boat to experience the lake

from an entirely new perspective!

Pick Summer Produce

Take the family outside to support local growers and take in the season’s best produce.

Highlighted Northwest farms include those in Greenbluff, just north of Spokane, and

Puyallup’s Picha’s Berry Farm, both offering a selection of you-pick berries, freshly picked

produce and more seasonal goodies.

It’s time to venture outside and explore the abundance of outdoor opportunities that await

this summer.

Some of the oldest people in the world, with the highest

quality of life, live in the Mediterranean. This could

be in large part to their active lifestyle; the people of

Greece and Italy walk and bike everywhere as well as spend

a lot of time outdoors. This could be because of their deep

connection to family; the people of the Mediterranean

are interconnected to their family and friends and often

live with several generations

under one roof. It is also true

that culturally, the people

within the Mediterranean stick

to rhythms that encourage

them to connect to their

greater community. However,

their rich lifestyle of lifelong

health is believed to be mostly

attributed to their diet. The

Mediterranean is known for its

cultural roots that encourage

high-quality foods, eating

within season, eating locally

according to what’s available,

gardening, and responsibly

caring for the animals

and animal products that

they consume.

The Mediterranean diet is

modeled after this way of

living and encourages a

healthy dietary pattern that

is sustainable as a lifestyle.

This means that diets such

as the Mediterranean diet

are more a way of life, versus

a strict standard that forces

weight loss; weight that once

lost returns once you return

to daily living. Research

shows that the Mediterranean

diet can lower chances for

cardiovascular diseases,

prevent certain types of cancer,

and it can have a positive

impact on mental health. If we

are to assume that the people

of the Mediterranean live a

long life in part because of

their diet, there is also the added benefit of living long. The

goal of such a diet is not to look perfect but to live within

the weight that is healthy for your body type. To help you

to feel good, versus craft a body that is “presentable.” The

goal here is long life, lived well, surrounded by those you

love. In light of that, what is the Mediterranean diet?

The Mediterranean diet is pretty straight forward, crafted

around local Mediterranean cuisine. It emphasizes fruits,

eating within season

vegetables, beans and legumes; things like peas, lentils, all different types

of dried beans, tomatoes, and leafy greens. It includes low or nonfat dairy

products, fish, poultry, non-tropical vegetable oils and nuts. So, palm oil

and coconut oil are out, while peanut oil, avocado oil and olive oil are

acceptable. Olive oil is especially encouraged as a source of healthy fats.

Freshly pressed, olive oil is considered to be more of a condiment than an

oil and has a variety of uses in all types of cuisine. As expected, this diet

limits sugary foods, highly processed foods, and foods high in sodium.

Lightly processed foods, such as quality cheeses, are allowed. Foods that

have a (relatively) ample amount of salt aren’t prohibited in any way, just

foods that contain high levels of sodium. Foods that are high in sodium

are generally preserved and highly processed; sodium becomes easier to

avoid as long as highly processed foods are limited.

The reason that the Mediterranean diet has been proven to work so well

is because it mimics the natural flow of what our bodies derive from

nature and suggests ingredients that have been proven to encourage

healthy habits for generations. It is for this reason that there are other

diets that also work in much the same way that the Mediterranean diet

does. Diets such as the DASH diet are also considered to be healthy for

lifelong use. DASH, or the Dietary Approach to Stop Hypertension, is

a diet that allows for more dairy and meat and doesn’t restrict healthy

fats to ingestion of olive oil. True to its name, the DASH diet helps lower

blood pressure by focusing on foods that are high in potassium, calcium

and magnesium. This means that under the DASH diet one can eat fruits,

vegetables, nuts, grains, beans, lentils, dairy and lean meats all in balance

and moderation.

Diets such as Paleo, Keto, or Whole 30 are surprisingly not on this list.

Not because they don’t yield results! The Keto Diet can be great for

someone who is suffering from diabetes, and the Whole 30 diet can

be great for helping someone overcome bad habitual eating. However,

these diets are not considered heart healthy, nor are they approved for

lifetime adherence. In any diet, the focus should always be on quality over

quantity. Foods high in nutrition are the primary focus, versus foods that

satisfy quickly but ultimately go unused by the body. That being said, our

bodies need all kinds of foods, versus strict restrictions, to get the variety

of nutrients that it needs for overall health. For instance, breads and pastas

are widely eaten in sustainable diets because carbohydrates are good for

quick bursts of energy. Carbohydrates are balanced in moderation by fresh

and cooked fruits and vegetables, as are part of a meal. Eating well isn’t

so much about focusing on eating one thing and not eating another, but

eating everything all together. For instance, pasta is usually eaten with

pasta sauce, which usually incorporates a variety of vegetables with a

moderate amount of meat. Taken all together, a healthy diet focuses on the

whole plate. In turn, from head to toe, the whole body is well fed.

The goal here

is long life,

lived well,

With 40 percent of the population

expected to suffer from sciatica

during their lifetime, it’s

important to know what it is

and what to do … when sciatica strikes.

If you are affected by sciatica, you will already

know how debilitating the pain and discomfort

can be and how unexpectedly it can arrive,

whether you’re sitting, standing, moving—

even when you’re sleeping!

Top Three Causes Why Your Back Pain is

Screaming for Help!

1. Herniated Disc. A herniated disc refers to

a problem with one or more of the rubbery

cushions (discs) between the individual bones

(vertebrae) that make up your spine. This may

result in pain, numbness or weakness in your

arm or leg. Pain may be described as tingling,

numbness, burning sensation down the leg.

2. Arthritis, Degenerative Disc Disease,

Stenosis. This is the narrowing of the open

spaces within your spine to your arms and legs.

Symptoms of spinal stenosis may include pain

with long periods of standing and walking, and

pain that comes on with standing and walking

and relief is brought on from sitting.

3. SI Joint/Pelvic Dysfunction. This is the

inflammation of one or both of your sacroiliac

joints—situated where your lower spine and

pelvis connect. Sacroiliitis can cause pain in

your buttocks or lower back and can extend

down one or both legs. Prolonged standing or

stair climbing can worsen the pain.

How to Stop Your Back from Screaming! A

Few Remedies for Sciatica Pain:

1. The Revolutionary 830 Cold Laser. Cuttingedge

technologies such as cold laser therapy,

electrical stimulation and electromagnetic

pulse eliminate pain, speed up healing and

depolarize painful nerves. Furthermore,

influencing pain modulators (stress, anxiety

and sleep) gives successful pain relief with no

pain medication.

2. Multifunctional Movement Therapy.

This therapy stops pain, increases strength,

confidence and agility through specialized

movements proven to rapidly resolve sciatica

pain and other issues.

3. Dry Needling Therapy. Dry Needling is

a very effective form of manual therapy that

uses very thin needles inserted in your muscle

tissue. Many conditions that were traditionally

hard to treat including sciatica pain are now

treated successfully by Dry Needling.

All of these natural healing options,

including cutting-edge technology, are

provided in one package at Kauai Therapy &

Wellness - Ponderay.

can make.)

HEALTHY

Adventure Outside for

Your Health and Happiness

The summer months give us a reason to get outside, no matter the time of day. As the

sun makes its presence known early in the morning and well into the evening, take that

as an invitation to take in all that sunshine, fresh air, and all the outdoors that surround

you have to offer.

A run before work, a walk to your neighborhood restaurant or coffee shop during your

lunch break, an after-dinner walk with family; these are the simple ways during a busy

work week to unwind, refresh, and squeeze in a little exercise.

Come the weekend, plan a hike on your favorite trail; dust off your bicycle and join

a riding group; take a swim in your favorite outdoor community pool, river, lake or

ocean; or hit the water for some kayaking, canoeing or paddleboarding. If you have

an entire weekend to escape the everyday, a camping trip to a nearby campground will

keep you outdoors and active all day long.

There’s plenty of time to get outside and enjoy the outdoors this summer. No excuses.

So, what are you waiting for? Start small and think big!

Another Adventure-Packed

EXPLORE SAFELY WITH TIPS FROM THE BGH EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT

by KRISTIN CARLSON, MARKETING SPECIALIST, BONNER GENERAL HEALTH

Another summer equals endless adventures on that

summer in Sandpoint to-do list. Hiking, biking,

swimming, boating, camping, rock-climbing, outdoor

gatherings, and enjoying the spectacular views. Being

mindful of our surroundings and taking extra steps of caution can

reduce the risks of an unexpected injury.

“Some of the most common preventable injuries we see in the

Emergency Department are head injuries, ranging from minor

injury to major trauma, from a bicycle, motorcycle or ATV/UTV

accidents. So wearing a helmet could make a big difference,” said

BGH Emergency Department Nurse Rob McGregor.

“My best advice for preventing injury, in addition to wearing a

helmet, is to be aware of your surroundings when participating in

activities; quickly scan the area for any major hazards that could be

avoided. Also, wear proper footwear. We see a lot of injuries from

trip and fall due to very poor footwear. Even in the heat of summer,

wear sandals with straps rather than flip-flops. Lastly, drink less

alcohol and more water during activities. Dehydration can lead to

weakness and falls.”

Additional Summer Safety Tips:

• Water Safety: Drowning is the number one cause of death in

children 1 to 4 years old. Wear a life jacket, swim with a buddy,

supervise children around the water and limit your distractions. All

swimmers should remember to follow the rules at the pool or beach,

and always check the weather before swimming or boating.

• Buckle Up: “Motor vehicle crashes are the highest mechanism of

traumatic injury we see at our ED in the summer months,” according

to Marian Martin, Emergency Department manager. So whether it’s

a road trip or driving around town, ensure all occupants of your

vehicle are wearing a seat belt properly, including those in car seats.

• SPF: Protect your skin with sunscreen daily, often reapplying when

outdoors. Protective clothing, hats and sunglasses will also help

prevent sunburn.

• First Aid: Bringing a first aid kit on your outdoor adventures can

reduce the risk of infection and the severity of an injury. If you are

inexperienced, try an introductory first aid course.

• Pedestrian/Bike Safety: Use sidewalks and crosswalks where

available, map out your destination and take the safest route, wait

for pedestrian signals at traffic lights, and use hand signals and bike

lights when necessary.

Where to Go?

In the event of injury or illness, knowing where to go can make all

the difference. The Emergency Department is the right choice if

you or a family member is experiencing a life-threatening illness

or injury.

You will want to go to the Emergency Department to treat:

• Difficulty breathing

• Any symptoms of stroke: face drooping, slurred speech, arm

weakness, sudden vision trouble, or sudden trouble understanding

simple statements.

• A major burn

• Persistent chest pain that radiates to your arm and may also include

sweating, vomiting or shortness of breath

• Severe head injury

• Coughing or vomiting blood

• Severe pain in your chest or upper abdominal pain, or pressure

• If you are more than 20 weeks along, pregnancy complications

include contractions/labor with bleeding, leaking fluid or decreased

fetal movement.

Children should be brought to the Emergency Department if

they are experiencing:

• Head injury

• Significant bone or soft-tissue injuries

• High, persistent fever (38.5°C or 100.4°F)

• Persistent vomiting or diarrhea

• Considerable lack of fluid intake (especially in a younger child)

• Substantial changes in the child’s activity level

If an injury is not life-threatening, an Immediate Care Clinic visit

may be appropriate. Immediate Care Clinics can treat:

• Cuts, bruises and minor lacerations

• Earache, sore throat and fever

• Minor burns and skin infections

• Sprains, strains and simple fractures

• Upper respiratory infections, bronchitis and sinusitis

Have fun and stay safe! We hope you won’t need us, but we are here

if you do.

FINANCIAL FOCUS

New limits expand 401(k), IRA opportunities

This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local

Edward Jones Financial Advisor Ken Wood

You could spend two, or even three,

decades in retirement. So, to pay

for all those years, you’ll probably

need to take full advantage of

your retirement accounts. And in 2022, you

may have expanded opportunities to deduct

retirement plan contributions on your

tax return.

Before looking at what’s changed this year, let’s

review the key benefits of these accounts:

• Traditional IRA - You typically contribute

pretax (deductible) dollars to a traditional

IRA, and your earnings can grow tax-deferred.

• Roth IRA - You invest after-tax dollars in a

Roth IRA, so your contributions won’t lower

your taxable income, but your earnings can

grow tax free, provided you’ve had your

account at least five years and you’re 59 ½ or

older when you begin taking withdrawals.

• 401(k) - A 401(k) or similar plan (such

as a 457(b) for state and local government

employees or a 403(b) for employees of public

schools or nonprofit groups) is generally

funded with pretax dollars and provides

tax-deferred earnings. Some employers

offer a Roth 401(k), in which employees

contribute after-tax dollars and can take taxfree

withdrawals if they meet the same age

and length-of-ownership requirements as the

Roth IRA.

So, what’s different about these plans in 2022?

First, consider the traditional IRA. If you—

and your spouse, if you’re married—don’t have

a 401(k) or similar plan, you can always deduct

the full amount of your contribution on your

tax return, no matter what you earn. But if one

or both of you are covered by an employersponsored

plan, then your deductions could be

reduced or eliminated based on your income.

Single taxpayers can claim the full deduction if

your modified adjusted gross income (MAGI)

is $68,000 or less ($109,000 for married filing

jointly), with deductibility decreasing at

higher income levels and phasing out entirely

at $78,000 ($129,000 for married filing jointly).

TOP THREE NON-INVASIVE

Aesthetic Treatments

You don’t have to have cosmetic surgery to

age gracefully

As the world of aesthetic medicine

continues to grow, the demand for

non-invasive procedures rises. In

the early 1990s, cosmetic surgery

was all the rage among celebrities and noncelebrities

alike, but women and men are

looking for more affordable treatments that

deliver quick results with less downtime and

recovery. The new trend is to make small

changes in troubled areas to slow down the

signs of aging while still looking like yourself—

just refreshed. The International Association

for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine have

determined the top three non-invasive

aesthetic treatments that have the biggest

impact on an individual’s self-confidence and

esteem, and below we break them down.

Botulinum (Botox®). It is no wonder that

Botox® came in at number one. This treatment

takes just a few minutes, is painless, and

temporarily inhibits muscle contraction in

the areas it is placed, resulting in a softer

appearance between the eyebrows, forehead,

and around the eyes. Years of muscle-use in our

faces—from smiling, squinting, stressing—

create what begin as fine lines and deepen

over time. Botox® can heal the dermal cracking

or can be used preventatively to help deter

their deepening.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP can be

used to treat acne scarring, hair loss and facial

rejuvenation by utilizing the natural growth

factors in your blood to promote new collagen

growth and heal the signs of scarring and aging

from within. The PRP is injected into specific

areas to regenerate tissue, smooth and tighten

skin, soften wrinkles, brighten your skin’s

tone and enhance elasticity. It can specifically

soften dark hollows around the eyes, plump

drawn cheeks, soften lines and pores, and give

your skin tone, tightness and texture a boost

from within.

Photofacials. Photofacials, also known as

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, uses a

broad spectrum of light to treat conditions

related to sun-induced skin damage. The

light therapy is absorbed by the melanin

and oxyhemoglobin in the skin to reduce

the appearance of sunspots (brown spots/

age spots) and small capillaries (spider veins)

with minimal downtime or discomfort. The

treatment takes less than 30 minutes and,

in the few days following treatment, clients

will begin to see the brown spots lift to the

surface and exfoliate off, revealing a more even

skin complexion.

Talk with your aesthetic provider to determine

if non-invasive aesthetic treatments can help

you achieve your skin-care goals.

make your

eyes pop

Ready to make

your eyes (and

eyebrows) pop

this summer?

These highlighting facial features can make all the difference

in enhancing your face shape and facial expressions. Wellplanned

eye makeup can refresh your look instantly, and

whether your makeup style is detailed or low-key, this

summer’s trends are all about glowing up, starting with

those eyes!

Don’t overlook the eyebrows when it comes to accentuating

those eyes. Through all the trends eyebrows have seen and

endured over the years, one thing has been consistently clear:

Paying attention to the eyebrows is important! Makeup artists

often describe how eyebrows can change the entire look of

the face.

Eyebrows can reframe the shape of the face and allow you

to express yourself without saying a word. Fortunately, there

are more ways than ever before to enhance the look of your

eyebrows, and many of this season’s most popular methods

are nearly effortless.

Draw the attention to your eyes this summer with the

following tips and trends:

Eyebrow Lamination. One of the most popular eyebrow

trends of 2022, brow lamination is a non-invasive, semipermanent

treatment designed to produce perfectly balanced,

brushed-up brows that last for weeks or months.

The treatment involves restructuring the brows using a

product that helps straighten curled hairs, increase symmetry,

and balance gaps in the brow hairs. The brows are set into

ultra-glam,

adorned

features are in

a more desirable, brushed-up shape using a long-lasting fixing

product, leaving a well-set final result: the appearance of fullerlooking

brows. Ask your esthetician about eyebrow lamination.

Full, Minimalist Brows. Embracing your natural brow this year?

You’re already on trend! Celebrities, influencers and makeup artists

alike are keeping their looks simple by embracing their eyebrows’

natural shape for a more relaxed appearance. The all-natural brow

embraces length, fullness, longer tails, and fluffy, soft edges. No

need for harsh tweezing or over-maintenance. Minimalist is in!

Minimalist brows can still be bold—it’s all about embracing the

fullness and personality of your natural brows. To accentuate

your brows, use a tinted brow gel or pomade, starting with a light

application. Work up to find the right amount for your desired

look, using makeup brushes to balance the look and achieve your

desired shape.

Under-Eyeliner. The eyes can be accentuated with just a subtle

change, like the placement of your eyeliner or the color you use.

The “reverse wing” trend has emerged for 2022, calling for lines

placed under the eye in a bold, flattering look. Under-eyeliner

tends to lift the outer corners of the eyes, helping the eyes appear a

bit bigger and brighter.

Smudged Eyeliner. Expressive “moody” makeup is in for 2022,

and you can bring the look of a smoky eye into the summer with

this season’s revived smudged eyeliner trend. All you’ll need is your

everyday black eyeliner (for ease, opt for a pencil or crayon over

liquid eyeliner) and a short eyeshadow brush. The unstructured,

messy-chic look is easy to create—simply apply your eyeliner

and use your brush to softly blur the lines right away. The best

part? Leaning in to the unstructured, rule-free aspect of this look.

Release the focus on flawlessness and embrace a little freedom with

this trend.

Make a Statement with Metallics and Eye Shadows. The summer’s

eye makeup trends celebrate color pops with bright, summery

tones, and all things glitter. From the runways to mainstream

media, the eyes are making more of a statement than ever this

year. It’s all about the eyes this season, and ultra-glam, adorned

features are in, from metallic eye shadows to carefully placed gems

and rhinestones. Adding a gem to the inner corners of the eyes

has become a popular look—just use a drop of latex-free lash glue

Lean into a summery glow

and sun-kissed tones.

before carefully pressing on your gem of choice! If

you want the glam without the accessories, start

with a metallic glitter, or a bold, shimmering shade

of eyeshadow, to incorporate the statement-making

trend into your everyday eye-makeup routine.

Colorful eyeshadows in pastels and bright hues are

in—choose your shade and place it on top of an

eyeshadow primer to ensure a strong hold. Pair your

bright eyes with neutral lip colors and a clear brow

wax to keep the color pop in focus!

Color Pops with Eyeliner. Not sure if you’re ready

to step into the bright-colored eyeshadow trends

this summer? If you want to try something new

without going for a full-colored eyeshadow, a colored

eyeliner applied along your lower lashes is the perfect

compromise. It might feel like an adventurous step

from your normal look (especially if that look is

based in ultra-natural or neutral tones), but it’s a

subtle enough step out of your comfort zone that you

just might love it! A swipe of color under your bottom

lashes can quickly add impact and significantly

brighten the eyes with little effort.

Warm Blushes and Tanned Tones. Lean into a

summery glow and sun-kissed tones with your

makeup this season, including your eye makeup! An

all-over facial glow is a definite summer look, and all

it takes is some bronzer, lipstick in a warm, neutral

shade, and a shimmering copper-toned eyeshadow

to achieve the appearance of being sun-kissed

throughout your face.

With blushes back in style this season, use that to

accentuate this trend. When you’re using blushes

or bronzers to accentuate your facial shape (on the

bridge of the nose and low on the cheeks), use the

remaining product to brighten your eyelids for an allover

brightening!

RHINE

RIVER CRUISE

84 SANDPOINT LIVING LOCAL july/august 2022

I was recently invited on a Press Trip to experience the Viking Egdir, one of the company’s newest longships launched

earlier this year, on the Rhine Getaway itinerary. The eight-day cruise began in Basel, Switzerland, with stops in

France, Germany and The Netherlands along the Rhine River. Each day brought exciting new discoveries as the ship

passed charming villages plucked right from a storybook, vineyards crawling up hillsides, Gothic cathedrals, and

even Dutch windmills. The highlight of the trip was the 40-mile stretch of the Rhine River between Koblenz and

Bingen, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Egdir cruised past more than 20 medieval castles dating back

to 966 and the delightful small towns surrounding them. It was such a magical experience.

Pro Tip: Book your airfare through Viking and pay the extra $100 to $150 for Viking Air Plus, which allows you

more options in selecting your flights and seats. With the current pilot shortage and frequent airline delays, you

will have peace of mind as Viking provides a 24-hour hotline to use during your journey. The representatives work

with the airlines and Viking to get you to your cruise. On my trip they even delayed our departure so a guest could

make the cruise.

EAT

Restaurant, the main dining venue, or the Aquavit

I truly enjoyed the culinary experiences on board the

Viking Egdir. You have the option of dining in the

Terrace that offers both indoor and outdoor seating

depending on the weather. The same menu is offered

at both locations. Each day there are classics that are

always available, specials of the day and at dinner a

regional menu based on where the ship is. Ingredients

are locally sourced, and the chef accents meals from

the onboard herb garden. I lost count of how many

croissants I ate.

Make sure to read the Viking Daily each day. The

four-page newsletter has a detailed section of culinary

information about the food specialties for your next

destination. Viking provides so many opportunities to

experience local favorites. I was able to enjoy a slice of

Black Forest Cake at a restaurant in the Black Forest

region. In the evenings there are optional excursions

to local restaurants, pubs or wineries. I took a culinary

walking tour of Strasbourg, France, and had the

opportunity to eat and drink from local vendors and

restaurants across the city. Onboard the ship, some

of the cultural enrichment events were culinary with

a food demonstration and the opportunity to taste a

local delicacy.

STAY

My accommodation on the Viking Egdir was their

Veranda Stateroom. One of the things I like about

Viking is the brand consistency. Each Viking Longship

is the same, so you know what to expect. I recommend

the Veranda Stateroom, as it gives you extra space with

the private veranda. The views are spectacular with a

floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door, versus one that pulls

open, so you can enjoy fresh air in your cabin if you

like. A nice feature is all the 110/220-volt outlets and

USB ports. The Scandinavian design is thoughtfully

engineered with plenty of storage space and a very

comfortable bed with luxury linens.

River cruising provides a more intimate experience

with only 190 guests and 50 crew. You won’t find the

spas and multiple dining options that are on ocean

cruise ships, but I didn’t miss it. I enjoyed spending

time on the sun deck with its 360-degree views of the

Rhine River and a beautiful organic herb garden. There

is plenty of comfortable seating in the lounge, which

serves as the main common area as well as tucked

around the ship.

DO

Viking provides one complimentary shore excursion for every

port of call except for departure day. On arrival day there was

an opportunity to take a Welcome Walk with a local guide

through Basel. Each day the included excursion is either a bus

tour or a walking tour. I was very impressed with the quality of

the tours and the guides. Most days you can take the included

tour in the morning and an optional one in the afternoon or

evening. Guest services and the program director were flexible

and able to arrange seats for a sold-out pub crawl when more

guests wanted to go.

Take advantage of the fact your ship docks right next to town. I

was able to walk right off the ship and into Cologne, Germany,

and a few other towns to explore. In Koblenz, Germany, I was

able to enjoy a currywurst at a local imbiss (fast food hut)

right next to the ship before walking over to catch the gondola

high up a hill to the mighty fortress of Ehrenbreitstein. Make

sure to pack comfortable walking shoes. This was truly a

memorable trip.

Hydration is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and nothing quenches your thirst like a tall

glass of water. Whether you prefer cold or room temperature, it’s up to you. But … sometimes water

needs a little kick to make it a bit more exciting.

A CLEAN

COMPLEXION

What you put into your body directly affects

your outward appearance. And there’s

no exception when it comes to water. A

hydrated body means hydrated skin, and the

most noticeable is your face. Water intake

plus a good diet and beauty regimen will

ensure your face, and the rest of your skin,

look their best.

HUNGER

CONTROL

Water is known to aid in weight control.

Dehydration is all too common among

Americans, often resulting in hunger pains

when in fact the body is in need of water.

Make it a habit to start your morning off

with a fresh glass of water, making sure to

drink several ounces every hour or so, and

more an hour or two before a meal, to help

curb your appetite.

BRAIN

POWER

The human brain relies on proper hydration

in order to function optimally. Research

shows that dehydration can affect one’s focus

and impair short-term memory function

and the recall of long-term memory. Our

bodies are constantly losing water. So when

you feel like your brain power is struggling,

water should be your first go-to solution.

grapefruit

Consuming grapefruit not only is

hydrating but increases energy levels,

aids in skin rejuvenation, improves

eyesight and metabolism, helps build

stronger nails and better hair, and is

beneficial in many additional ways.

orange

Oranges are rich with water (a medium

orange provides 4 ounces of water).

They are high in vitamin C and supply

nutrients such as potassium and folate;

a great antioxidant and source of fiber,

and helps in collagen production,

boosts the immune system and aids in

iron absorption.

lime

Loaded with nutrients, limes are

known to help boost immunity, aid

in iron absorption and promote

healthy skin, among others. This sour

yet fresh fruit is a great addition to a

variety of drinks, especially water.
