Make the switch! Use glass containers to reduce packaging waste. The U.S. generated almost 14 million tons of plastic containers and plastic packaging in 2010 alone. • Glass is cleaner than plastic. The nonporous surface of glass does not absorb food and germs (and smells) • Glass can be safely washed at high temperatures in your dishwasher • You can use and reuse your glass containers again and again, which ends up saving you money FYI: Glass can be recycled endlessly; it does not wear out after several recyclings, so be sure to always recycle your glass bottles and containers! GYM LAUGHS Q: Why was the farmer arrested at the gym? A: He was destroying his calves. Coach’s Corner “Breath is the link between mind and body!” Breathing is usually automatic; however, conscious breathing can be done anytime and anywhere! Try these two breathing exercises: • Energizing breath (when you are feeling tired) = close your eyes and sit with an upright posture, breath in through your nose for a count of 6 to 8 (filling your belly with oxygen like a balloon), then exhale out of your nose or mouth for a count of 3 to 4 (as you feel your belly deflate) repeat. • Relaxation breath (when you are feeling stressed out) = close your eyes (unless you are driving) inhale through your nose for a count of 3 to 4, then exhale out of your mouth for a count of 6 to 8 (imagine that you are fogging up a piece of glass).
