Many people suffer from heartburn. Heartburn is
when the stomach contents flow back into the
esophagus and cause a burning sensation. Majority
of people will suffer from heartburn sometime in
their life. If you suffer from heartburn you should
see your doctor to rule out any other medical
problems. Here are a few things you could try to
reduce heartburn.
1. Avoid spicy, acidic, tomato based foods.
Some foods like chocolate, fruit juices and
citrus foods bother some people and some
don’t. When you find certain foods that
seem to give you more indigestion, try and
avoid them.
2. Limit coffee, tea, alcohol and pop.
Sometimes caffeine will bother some
3. Watch your weight. Being overweight will
increase abdominal pressure and will cause
the stomach content to flow back into the
4. Don’t gorge yourself at mealtime. Just eat
till you are comfortable.
5. Don’t exercise too soon after eating.
6. Wait at least 3-4 hours after a meal before
you lay down.
7. Cut back on your smoking if quitting is not
an option.
8. You can try elevating your head when lying
down; by an extra pillow, blanket under
your mattress or raising the head of your
bed on blocks.

18 Life Lessons

2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone.
4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are
sick, your friends and parents will, keep in touch.
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
6. You don’t have to win every argument, agree to
7. Cry with someone, it’s more healing than crying
8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
9. Save for retirement starting with your first
10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
11. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
12. Don’t compare yourself to others, you have no
idea what their journey is all about.
13. Everything can change in the blink of an eye, but
don’t worry God never blinks.
14. Take a deep breath it calms the mind.
15. Get rid of anything useful, beautiful or joyful.
16. Frame every so called disaster with “In 5 yrs will
this matter”?
17. If we threw all our problems in a pile and saw
everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
18. Growing old beats the alternative-dying young.
We are now using our spring and summer menu and
as such you will notice that there are more cold
plates and light items presented. This is available to
help combat the heat of summer as well to give a
fresh change. I will be using the feedback from
resident request meals to see about incorporating
some of the more positive items into the summer
With the coming of summer we would like to
remind people to keep hydrated by drinking plenty
of liquids. Items such as fresh fruit, juices, and water
are best; but even herbal teas or milk can help.
Drinks like Gatorade will help with maintaining
hydration as well as your potassium and sodium
levels but can have a large number of calories from
sugar so be careful if you use these types of drinks.
Coffee and tea while they are comprised mostly of
water have caffeine and therefore tend to leave you
more dehydrated in the long term.

~ One-third of your life is spent
~ Everybody dreams. EVERYBODY!
Simply because you do not
remember your dream does not
mean that you do not dream. In fact,
you have several dreams during a
normal night of sleep.
~ Dreams are indispensable. A lack
of dream activity may imply some
protein deficiency or a personality
~ On average, you can dream
anywhere from one to two hours
every night. Moreover, you can have
four to seven dreams in one night.
~ Blind people do dream. Whether
visual images appear in their dreams
depend on whether they were blind
at birth or became blind later in life.
~ Studies have shown that your
brain waves are more active when
you are dreaming than when we are
~ People who are in the process of
giving up smoking tend to have longer
and more intense dreams
~ Toddlers do not dream about
themselves. They do not appear in
their own dreams until the age of 3
or 4.
~ If you are snoring, then you
cannot be dreaming.
~ Nightmares are common in
children, typically beginning at
around age 3 and occurring up to
age 7-8.

I would like to remind everyone that
there is no specific time allocated for
cleaning suites. Housekeeping staff
have many other duties to perform
throughout the day, some that may take
precedence over suite cleaning, if they
are emergencies or affect the health and
safety of residents, staff and visitors,
such as cleaning up spills.
