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.

The new trend for sleep issues....the weighted blanket

by Heather Leigh posted Jan 3 2018 6:42AM
I've shared before my issues with getting a good night's sleep and my experience with anxiety and panic attacks. The struggle is real and there is a new trend I'm excited to jump on board with.....the weighted blanket. This magical blanket was created to be heavier than your average bedding. Most of them have pellets sewn into pockets of the lining to give them some bulk. The weight ranges from 10-25 lbs. The pressure is evenly distributed across your body, which some research suggests can provide anxiety & stress relief for those with sleep issues. 

Sounds like a dream come true, right? The problem is a lot of these blankets can really put a strain on your bank account. Here are 11 choices that won't break the bank if you want to try one!

Pet of the Week 

Hey folks, my name is Dexter and I'm a two year old long hair cat with fur coloration they call tick. I guess it has speckles of white, black and brown that gives me a cool look. I also have these long white whiskers that mean I have smarts, of course that could be an old wive's tale, but it sure sounds good to me. Some say I may even have Maine Coon in my bloodlines, but nothing has been proven. No matter; because to me the most important thing is that I'm a nice guy, and I sure hope you'll think so too once you meet me. Read more about him here.
