MHLbannersmallSome Cool Reading for a Hot Summer

Welcome to your June My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter, the online voice of My Healthy Lifestyle, a program designed to bring good information on health and wellness to all Riverside team members. The month of June includes National Men's Health Week and in recognition, we're shining the My Healthy Lifestyle spotlight on the health screenings that men need to have, some reasons why men and women differ when it comes to healthy behaviors and some thoughts on why men's health impacts more than men. You'll also find an employee tip on refreshing and inexpensive ways to stay hydrated during the hot summer days and an interesting story – told in a surprising way – about one woman's journey from "couch to half marathon" including some helpful ideas on how you can make that journey, too. All this plus some good reasons, including a couple you might not have considered, why it makes sense to reduce the processed foods you and your family eat.

Our hope as you receive your My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter each month is that you will not only read it but respond to it. To submit comments and ideas for future issues, please contact Daniel Ballin at And you can also follow Daniel on Twitter @danob71 for more health-related information.
