Heather's Health Connection

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so here is your first reminder to do your October self check.  I know I have a hard time remembering myself... so when I saw this, I downloaded it right away!

The non-profit Keep A Breast teamed up with verynice studio and The Rare Studios  to re-think the role of smart phones in breast cancer awareness and prevention. The FREE app provides a visual step-by-step overview of the breast self-exam and allows you to easily schedule an automatic monthly reminder with a pop-up text reminder.

With 40% of diagnosed breast cancers being self-detected, the iPhone and Android compatible app aims to educate young people about the importance of breast self-examination and its timing. The monthly reminder helps the user perform their breast self-exam at the same time every month, at the recommended time, right after your monthly cycle. Because of the normal hormonal fluctuations in a woman’s body that affect breast tissue, it is important to select the same time every month so you will be able to distinguish between normal change and something that feels different.

This app can be downloaded from the iTunes and Google Play stores. Both verynice and The Rare Studio helped make the app possible by graciously contributing over 150 hours of pro-bono service to the organization, allowing us to offer this life-changing – and perhaps life-saving app- free to the public.

How to be exceptionally likable

by Heather Leigh posted Jul 6 2017 11:27AM
We all want to be liked. Everyone wants to be that woman you know who just draws people in. She's the mom who walks in the room and everyone speaks to her, she's the person in your company who gets more face time with the boss, and who everyone strives to be.
I have friends and relatives, and I have even myself said "why don't I have more friends?"  or "why can't I be like so and so?" Well up until recently, most people believed they couldn't change their situation. It was something you were born with or just had or you didn't. 

Now researchers say that's not true at all. We all have the ability to become more likable. If you feel like you don't have a great group of friends, or people just aren't drawn to you the way you want them to be, there are some really small and easy things you can do to change that. It's connected to your emotional intelligence (EQ.

 In a study conducted at UCLA, subjects rated over 500 adjectives based on their perceived significance to likability. The top-rated adjectives had nothing to do with being gregarious, intelligent, or attractive (innate characteristics). Instead, the top adjectives were sincerity, transparency, and capacity for understanding (another person).

So if you want to be more likable, here are 13 habits of exceptionally likable people you can start working on today!

Pet of the Week 

Tank is sweet and loving both with his human friends and some female dogs.  We don’t  think he would be a good fit in a home with cats. Tank loves attention and going for walks and car rides.  We would love Tank to go to a home that has lots of room for him.  The kennel staff call him “little piggy” because when he gets excited he snorts like a pig. We are looking for a family that has older children because of Tank’s size. Read more about me here.
