Earthquake Preparedness

Is your home ready for the next big one?

Although earthquakes are unpredictable and years can go by without feeling one, being ready at all times is a must! Everyone knows to take cover and wait it out, but what do you do once the shaking has stopped, will you be ready? A few very important reminders:

  1. Try to maintain close to a full tank of gas in your car at all times (or in portable containers) as gas stations will not operate after a big earthquake.
  2. Share your phone location with family and/or friends so that in the midst of havoc, you can still find each other.
  3. Along with your first aid kit and back up food supply keep a portable charger that can keep your phone alive a little bit longer to call for help.
  4. Check under your sinks for cracks or leakages to make sure you won’t be leaving the house and coming back to a flooded home.
  5. Be ready for aftershocks! Although checking for damages is important, know that aftershocks are more than certain so be prepared to exit or take cover.

Summer Comes to a Close

“…and all at once, summer collapsed into fall.”

– Oscar Wilde

As the summer months come to a close, we reflect back to the long warm evenings, fun times outdoors, and the vacations / staycations had! While technically the fall season does not start until the end of September, Labor Day weekend serves as the “unofficial end of summer” to many. Take time to soak up the remainder of the month and enjoy your long holiday weekend with family and friends!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Fall!

Back to School

It’s time to dust off your backpacks…school is back in session! August marks “National Back to School Month” and has been observed since the 1960s. It is a time to organize your new school supply list, learn your class schedule and prep for the year ahead. In addition to prepping school supplies, it is important to get back in the groove of your school night schedule. Acclimate into your traditional sleep routines, make an after-school plan and anticipate allocating time for homework!

How do you and your family prepare for the school year ahead?

Happiness Happens Month

In every life we have some trouble
But when you worry you make it double
Don’t worry, be happy.

-Bobby McFerrin

 

This August, we celebrate happiness through “Happiness Happens” month! The lyrics above communicate this idea to the fullest! While we all have trials and tribulations in our daily lives, it is important to find joy at any point and any time. Don’t always look to the future wishing to breeze through your life, instead live in the here and now. Like attracts like so when you change your mindset to choose happiness, good things and energy will come your way!

What are your tips for finding happiness in your everyday life?
