Tick Population Exploding In The US This Year – How To Protect Yourself From Lyme Disease




Last year amidst a global pandemic we were made aware of a particularly frightening threat on the West Coast of the US…murder hornets. 

Some feared some took appropriate precautions, and in true internet fashion, some stuck to meme-making in dealing with the potential threat. 

Then, as warmer temps approached this year, specific parts of the country geared up for another (less lethal) insect invasion, the 17-year brood X cicadas. 

And, as if we hadn’t met our creepy-crawly quota yet with those two contenders over the last few years, there’s yet another concern crawling out of the insect world (arachnid, actually) threatening potential harm to all those who love the outdoors. 

Yes, the tick population, as our title foretells, has been rapidly growing in the US! 

Unfortunately, certain kinds of ticks can transmit disease-causing bacteria to those they bite, pets and humans alike. 

In other words, this is a huge heads-up for pet owners and those who enjoy time spent outdoors in the spring and summer months! 

So, what can you do to prevent tick exposure and bites? 

What should you do if you’ve been bitten by a tick? 

And, what Lyme disease signs and symptoms should you look out for if you have been bitten by a tick? 

We’ll give you the info on each of those topics, but first, why are ticks becoming a greater concern here in the US?  

Growing Tick Population

Did ticks hitch a ride on the backs of the giant murder hornets? 

Have they emerged from a 17-year deep-earth dig similar to the cicadas?

Obviously, no, neither of those are valid answers. So then, what’s with the uptick (pun intended) in the tick population this year in the US? Researchers have a few theories…

First, the cases of Lyme disease are not only increasing in number but in location as well. 

While the northeastern areas of the United States were the traditional areas where Lyme disease was prevalent, states like California and those located in the midwest are also seeing rises in cases of the disease now as well. 

One theory on the rise of Lyme disease in these areas, ultimately meaning an increase in the tick populations of these regions as well, is that this increase can be linked to changes in the climate. 

Researchers believe global warming has contributed to climates in these areas that are more favorable for ticks, though the two-year life cycle of ticks admittedly makes such conclusions difficult to reach firmly.

Another theory is that an increase in construction has led us to venture into wooded, tick-filled environments causing greater instances of Lyme disease. 

Thirdly, some researchers have attributed the spike in cases of Lyme disease to measures put in place by the recent pandemic, citing social distancing measures have led folks “outdoors and caused them to engage in activities that would expose them to tick bites.” 

But, while Lyme disease can be a serious illness if it is caught early on, it is easily treatable. 

And, since we’re certainly not advising anyone to avoid being in nature, let’s look at some things you can do to prevent tick bites and Lyme disease. 

How To Protect Yourself From Lyme Disease

If you plan on spending time outdoors in nature (especially in grassy or wooded areas), there are some key things you can do to protect yourself from Lyme disease. 

1- Location

If possible, avoid those areas with high grass and heavily wooded areas where ticks are most often found. 

Ticks move slowly, and they can’t jump or fly. However, as they rest on the ends of leaves and grass when you walk through those areas, they can then latch onto your skin or clothing as you pass through. 

If you are in an area that has marked trails or paths, stick to the center of the trails to avoid potential contact with ticks. 

2- Check Yourself

As ticks are most active between April and September, when spending any time outdoors in the spring and summer months be sure to check the following areas closely before coming indoors.

  • under your arms
  • near your belly button
  • around your ears
  • the backs of your legs, especially near your knees
  • the inner parts of your legs
  • in your hair
  • around your waist
  • all clothing and/or other items you’ve had outdoors with you

3- Check Your Pets

If you have an indoor/outdoor pet, be sure to check your pet for ticks as well before they come indoors as they can bring them into your home and onto your furniture. 

And, talk with your veterinarian about using products that can repel ticks and other insects from your pet. (While there are over-the-counter products claiming to provide tick prevention, some pets (cats in particular) are extremely sensitive to the chemicals in these products, so speaking with your vet before using any such products is highly advised.)

4- Use Insect Repellents

Before venturing outdoors in areas where ticks are common, use an EPA-registered insect repellent containing DEET. 

It is recommended to find a product that contains 30-35% DEET and apply the product every 4-6 hours. 

While the EPA has approved the use of DEET for people of all ages, this product has been known to cause irritation in some, so if you’re looking for a product to repel ticks without DEET, you can also search for products containing the following repellents: 

  • picaridin
  • para-menthane-diol 
  • 2-undecanone
  • IR3535
  • oil of lemon eucalyptus

Be sure to always follow product instructions when using a repellent, and avoid contact with your hands, eyes, and mouth. When using such products on children, it is best if parents apply the repellent. 

If you’re using sunscreen as well, be sure to apply the sunscreen first, then use the insect repellent.

And, if you’re unsure of which product would be best suited for you and your family, the EPA has an online research tool to help you choose appropriate options for you and/or your loved ones.

You can also use repellents to treat both your clothing and any other items you may be carrying with you in tick-prone areas (such as backpacks, camping gear, or cloth work-related items). 

Products containing .5% permethrin are recommended for treating shirts, boots, socks, pants, and other gear. 

5-  Keep Ticks Out Of Your Yard

There are also some things you can do to ensure your own yard is less likely to become a tick hotspot. 

  • Be sure to trim any tall grassy areas that may border your property. 
  • Use gravel or wood chips to create a barrier (3 ft is recommended) between your yard and any neighboring wooded areas. You can also use these items to create a barrier around playground equipment and patios to keep ticks away from frequently used portions of your property. 
  • Keep your lawn mowed frequently and any leaves raked to avoid ticks. 
  • Keep any wood piles away from your home as these can be a haven for rodents that ticks feed upon. 
  • Keep playground equipment and patios in a sunny location as ticks generally can not survive in sunny areas. 
  • You can also have your yard treated with tick pesticides to avoid them, however, it is important to note that this method isn’t a cure-all and can not guarantee that you won’t be bitten or infected by a tick bite. 

What To Do If You’ve Been Bitten By A Tick

If you find that a tick has attached itself to your body, you should remove it as soon as possible. 

The CDC recommends removing a tick in the following way: 

  • First, using clean, fine-tipped tweezers, grasp the tick. *You want to be sure you are grasping the area of the tick that is closest to your skin for proper removal.*
  • Using steady and even pressure, pull the tick upward. Be sure you do not twist or turn the tick, only pulling upward in an even motion to avoid causing the tick’s mouthparts to break off and remain in your skin. 
  • If the mouthpart does break off, try to remove them with the tweezers. If you can’t remove them with ease, leave them there and allow the skin to heal. 
  • Once you have removed the tick, clean the bite area (and your hands) thoroughly with alcohol, soap, and water. 
  • To dispose of a live tick, you can either flush it down the toilet, wrap it firmly in tape, put it in alcohol, or close it in a sealed bag or container. Do not attempt to crush a tick with your fingers or hands. 

There are a few old wives tales regarding tick removal, such as using heat, nail polish, or petroleum jelly to cause the tick to remove itself from the body. The CDC does not recommend any of these methods, but rather safely and effectively removing the tick as quickly as possible to avoid transmittance of bacteria that may cause Lyme disease. 

Lyme Disease Symptoms 

Lyme disease is an illness caused by bacteria that is transferred to a person via a bite from an infected tick. It is typically transmitted from black-legged ticks, also known as deer ticks. 

If bitten, the longer a tick is attached to your skin, the greater your risk of contracting Lyme disease. 

So, here’s what to look for if you have been bitten…


A bite from a tick usually produces a small, red bump that disappears in a day or two. 

The bite alone does not indicate Lyme disease. In fact, it may take up to a month for symptoms to surface. 

Ultimately, symptoms can vary depending on how a person’s body reacts to the bacteria. And,  individuals can experience these symptoms anywhere from 3 to 30 (or more) days after being bitten. 

The following are common symptoms of Lyme disease: 

  • fatigue
  • pain and/or swelling in joints
  • swollen lymph nodes
  • fever
  • muscle and body aches
  • headache
  • neck stiffness
  • difficulty concentrating
  • difficulty sleeping

But, the most common symptom of Lyme disease is a flat, red, circular (or oval) rash that appears at or near the site of the bite. Generally, the rash feels warm, but it is not painful. 

Nearly 70-80% of people infected with Lyme disease experience this, often-deemed, tell-tale rash.

Left untreated, Lyme disease symptoms can worsen resulting in: 

  • severe joint pain
  • a rash that develops on other areas of the body (similar to the classic Lyme disease rash described above)
  • weakness or numbness in limbs
  • inflammation in the brain 
  • temporary facial paralysis 

Less common symptoms that could potentially develop even weeks after infection include eye and liver inflammation, heart palpitations, and severe fatigue. 

It is important to note that the disappearance of symptoms does not always mean that the disease is gone. As untreated Lyme disease can cause greater harm to your body, always contact a physician if you have been bitten by a tick and are experiencing any symptoms of Lyme disease.

10 Morning Rituals That Help Shed Pounds




Let’s start here by going out on a limb…

I’m going to guess that the first thing you think about when you awake in the morning, alarm blaring or not, is not weight loss. 

Sure, if you have extra pounds to shed, it’s on your mind, but I doubt you wake up thinking about it. 

But, did you know that how you begin your morning can have a lot to do with your success when it comes to shedding those excess pounds?

Yep, that’s right…something as simple as your morning routine, the things you do so often that you don’t even have to think about them, can help you lose weight! 

So often weight loss can be a dreadful thing. Lots of to-don’ts, right? 

Well, here we’re going to show you ten powerful to-do’s that you can easily incorporate into your morning routine to set you up for weight loss success!! 

1- Hydration Station

What’s easier than drinking water, right? 

Starting your day with a glass or two of room-temperature water (preferably with a bit of freshly squeezed lemon for optimal health benefits) can actually help you shrink your waistline. 

Hydrating first thing in the morning can boost weight loss by increasing the number of calories your body burns for the next 60 minutes (it does this by increasing your metabolism). And, it can reduce the overall amount of calories you consume, due to making you feel full. 

Staying hydrated also helps your body flush out toxins, giving another helpful boost to your metabolism and aiding you in your weight loss efforts. 

2- Protein Packed

Some folks skip breakfast, and some folks can’t erase what their kindergarten (and first, second, and third grade) teachers told them: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

Now, of course, there is conflicting evidence debating the truth of that matter, but what isn’t debatable is the power of protein! 

Eating a breakfast high in protein has been proven to reduce cravings and promote weight loss. 

Protein can also reduce levels of ghrelin, a hormone known to control hunger, thereby reducing your appetite, keeping you feeling full for longer periods of time. 

Studies have also shown a link between those eating protein-packed breakfasts and a reduction in body fat (possibly due to the fact that protein is harder for your body to store as fat).

Reach for protein-rich foods like eggs, greek yogurt, nuts, and chia seeds for a healthy, protein-packed breakfast.  

3- Mindfulness Matters

Most of us are familiar with Rene Descartes saying, “I think, therefore I am.” But, do we truly act on this notion? 

Studies have proven the truth of this sentiment for centuries. What you think about matters!

Mindfulness involves intentionality. 

Rather than spending your mornings mindlessly scrolling through social media or sitting in front of the television, focus on the present moment, being aware of each of your thoughts and feelings. 

This time spent mindfully, first thing in the morning, can set you up for success throughout the rest of your day. 

And, studies have found the practice to significantly impact weight loss (successfully), reducing behaviors contributing to obesity specifically. 

Spending just 5 minutes in the morning, choosing a comfortable spot to sit and connect with your senses, training your body to focus on intentionality, can increase your likelihood of success in losing weight. 

Mindfulness has even been shown to indirectly boost weight loss by reducing mood swings (often a contributing factor to weight gain through mood-related binge eating). 

4- Brown Bag It

I’m sure you’ve heard the classic Ben Franklin quote, “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” And yes, this applies to packing your lunch…in multiple ways. 

Taking the time to pack a nutritious lunch in the morning:

  • ensures you have a lunch full of foods that are consistent with helping you achieve your weight loss goals
  • keeps you from succumbing to in-the-moment temptations (think drive-thrus and vending machines) when hunger calls 
  • ensures you have healthy options midmorning and midafternoon when hunger is known to strike (when you pack healthy snacks to consume throughout the day as well)
  • as opposed to eating out, you can control exactly what goes into your meal, measuring accurately your calorie intake (crucial for weight loss) and other dietary needs

And, studies have shown that people who prepare their meals ahead of time have better-quality diets overall and are less likely to be obese. 

5- Move It To Lose It

Okay, I know…you can exercise any time of day, right? True…but, studies show those who exercise first thing in the morning reap more rewards from it. 

  • Those who work out in the morning are classically more consistent at getting in exercise each and every day. 
  • Exercising in the morning has been shown to keep your blood sugar at a healthy level all throughout the day. 
  • A reduction in afternoon food cravings is associated with morning exercise. 
  • Morning exercise has been proven to boost weight loss (overall). 
  • Some claim that working out prior to breakfast boosts fat burning. 

So…move it in the morning and reap those benefits all throughout the day. 

Plus, when you workout in the morning, you don’t have to worry about squeezing it in at a later time in your busy day or being too tired to workout at the end of a hectic day. 

6- Change Your Commute

Have you considered that simply switching up your drive to (and from) work can do wonders for your waistline? 

One obvious reason to change routes would be to avoid any temptations on your drive that may cause you to routinely forego your goals for sugary or fatty fast foods on the way to work. 

But, you can also check off your morning exercise goal on your way to work by choosing to walk or bike instead of driving to work. 

As studies have shown that those commuting via car tend to gain more weight than those who get to work on foot or cycle (or rollerblade…nothing wrong with creativity), it’s no wonder that similar studies have proven such choices regarding active methods of commuting contributed to lower body fat percentages and significantly lower body mass indexes. 

7- Step On The Scale

I know…that dreaded ‘s’ word is a rough one. But, hear me out. 

Studies show that daily weight monitoring results in greater weight loss, and there’s truly (and scientifically) no better time to do it than first thing in the morning. 

Before the water, before the exercise, before breakfast, and after you’ve urinated first thing in the morning, step on the scale. This is your most accurate weight reading of the day. 

A healthy mindset regarding the scale involves knowing the causes for fluctuations (eating at a later time the night before, havingn’t had a bowel movement, consuming more sodium) and using the number you see to not reflect on yourself but your overall progress. 

Weighing yourself first thing in the morning shouldn’t be a discouraging factor, but a tool to collect data to motivate you regarding your weight loss goals and provide the information you need to adjust your diet or continue on with what you’re doing that has proven successful. 

Routine morning weigh-ins can build healthy habits, and studies show those who regularly engage in this practice lose more weight on average than those who skip the scale. 

8- Sleep, Sleep, Sleep

Whether it means getting a few extra z’s in the morning or heading to bed a bit earlier in the evening, changing up your routine to allow for some extra sleep may help you lose weight. 

Many studies centered around sleep and weight loss/gain have shown that a lack of sleep or sleep deprivation can wreak havoc on your waistline. 

Not getting enough sleep has been linked to an increase in:

  • calorie intake
  • hunger
  • cravings
  • appetite

Specifically in regards to weight loss efforts, studies have shown that when sleep was lacking, dieters lost up to 55% less fat even though their dieting efforts remained the same. 

Aside from this, lack of sleep in general doesn’t always set you up for the best decisions when it comes to weight loss. 

I’m sure you know the drill: You’re too tired, so you skip your workout. Then once you skip your workout, your other goals seem less important (even if only for that day) and your nutrition isn’t on point, and those decisions seem to snowball from there. 

Getting enough sleep (at least 8 hours nightly is recommended for adults) will help your decision-making, curb those cravings, and regulate your appetite, all keeping you on track to reach your weight loss goals! 

9- Time For Sunshine

Sunlight can help you shed pounds in a few surprising ways, specifically in the morning. 

Studies show those individuals who are exposed to the sun in the earlier hours of the day generally have a lower BMI (body mass index) than those people who don’t get sun exposure until later in the day. 

One study found that even moderate amounts of sun exposure had a direct impact on weight. 

And, animal studies have shown UV exposure to actually suppress weight gain. 

Your hormones also benefit from the vitamin D your body produces when exposed to the sunlight, thereby boosting your energy levels, and aiding in your weight loss efforts. 

Morning sunshine also contains the highest levels of blue light. So, when you develop a habit of getting sun exposure first thing in the morning, even something as simple as letting the sunshine in through your windows, this can greatly influence (in a good way) your circadian rhythm, helping you get better sleep.

Seek to get 20-30 minutes of sunlight exposure between the hours of 8 am and noon to fully benefit from all nature’s light has to offer in regards to your waistline. 

10- Cold Showers

You read that correctly. It’s not a typo. But, don’t skip this one…hear me out…

As awful as a cold shower sounds, first thing in the morning, there truly are many benefits to be had from this practice. 

While a hot shower is no doubt comforting, the heat can actually be pretty harmful, causing unwanted skin conditions and even high blood pressure. 

A cold shower, however, while it certainly boasts benefits to the health of your skin and hair, can also help you lose weight! 

A specific type of fat, known as brown adipose fat, can be activated by a cold shower. The activation of this fat then causes the release of two types of hormones (irisin and FGF21) which can help you lose weight by burning white fat tissue. 

A cold shower in the morning can also boost your metabolism and improve your energy levels. 

But, since the thought of a cold shower first thing in the morning doesn’t sound all too pleasant, let’s detail the best way to reap those benefits: 

  • First, you can begin your shower at a temperature that is comfortable to you, then gradually continue to lower the temperature after the first few minutes. 
  • Once you’ve reached a cold temperature, keep the water at this temperature for at least 3-4 minutes. 
  • Keep in mind that you can also ease yourself into this practice, starting with only a few seconds (of cold temperature), and then working your way up each day until your body is used to the cooler temperatures. 

As your body seeks to warm itself after these cold showers, you’ll automatically be burning more calories, already on your way to shrinking your waistline!

Finding Balance: The Key to a Healthy Work-Life Routine



In today’s fast-paced world, finding balance between work and personal life can be a challenging task. With the constant demands of work and the pressures of personal life, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed. However, finding the right balance between the two is essential for maintaining a healthy work-life routine and ensuring overall well-being.

One of the key aspects of finding balance is setting boundaries. It is important to establish clear boundaries between work and personal life in order to prevent one from encroaching on the other. This means setting aside time for work during designated hours and making sure to prioritize personal time for relaxation, hobbies, and spending time with loved ones.

Another important aspect of finding balance is time management. It is crucial to prioritize tasks and delegate responsibilities in order to effectively manage one’s time and avoid feeling overwhelmed. This may involve setting a schedule, making to-do lists, and setting realistic goals in order to stay on track and maintain a healthy work-life routine.

In addition, it is important to take care of oneself both physically and mentally. This means prioritizing self-care activities such as exercise, eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and taking time for relaxation and stress relief. Engaging in activities that promote well-being and relaxation, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature, can help to recharge and rejuvenate both the body and mind.

It is also important to communicate with others about your needs and boundaries. By being open and honest with colleagues, managers, and loved ones about your priorities and limitations, you can establish a support system that can help you maintain a healthy work-life routine. This may involve setting boundaries with work colleagues, asking for help when needed, or expressing your needs to your family and friends.

Ultimately, finding balance between work and personal life is a continuous journey that requires effort and commitment. By prioritizing self-care, setting boundaries, managing time effectively, and communicating openly with others, you can create a healthy work-life routine that promotes overall well-being and happiness. Remember, finding balance is not about perfection, but about making small, sustainable changes to create a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

Link Between Diabetes And Dementia?




Obesity and sedentary lifestyles are diminishing the health of many across the nation, increasingly affecting children as well, at an alarming rate. 

And, though I’m sure you’ve heard of the ways that these factors can adversely affect your health, putting you at risk for concerns such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes to name a few, they can also affect the health of your brain. 

Instances of diabetes leading to dementia are growing, and this is causing researchers to dig a bit further into this now-commonly-known link.  

So, what is the connection between diabetes and dementia? 

Do age and onset make a difference? 

And, if you have diabetes, or are at risk for diabetes, what can you do to reduce your risk of cognitive decline? 

Diabetes & Dementia

Diabetes is a health condition that changes how your body converts food into energy. 

As you eat, foods are normally broken down into glucose (sugar) which is released into your bloodstream. 

When the amount of sugar in your blood increases, this sends a signal to your pancreas to release insulin, a substance that allows your cells to then use that sugar as energy. 

In the case of diabetes, however, the body doesn’t produce adequate amounts of insulin, causing too much sugar to remain in the bloodstream.  

This can then lead to further health concerns such as kidney disease, problems with vision, heart disease, stroke, and dementia. 

And, it’s the last threat on that list that is garnering much attention as of late. 

Diabetics actually have a 73% greater risk of developing dementia than non-diabetics, with type 1 diabetics being 93% more likely to develop dementia. 

And, while dementia can be caused by a number of illnesses or even injuries, specifically speaking of its link to diabetes, it is thought that high levels of blood sugar and insulin can also cause harm or damage to the brain. 

So then, what is the connection between these two health conditions? 

First, we know that diabetes most often leads to a slow and subtle decline in brain function, but in patients who are already experiencing cognitive decline, the likelihood of this decline progressing to full-blown dementia increases greatly. 

But, aside from those already experiencing cognitive decline, diabetes knowingly causes damage to blood vessels, and it is also a known risk factor for vascular dementia, a type of cognitive decline often associated with brain damage due to problems with a lack of blood supply to the brain. 

In fact, the risk of developing vascular dementia increases by 100% in diabetes patients. 

And, as diabetes can lead to heart damage or stroke, blood vessels within the brain can become damaged in such instances. 

Diabetes can also cause chronic inflammation throughout the body which is known to damage brain cells. And, some studies have shown diabetes to cause an increase in the production of a toxic protein which causes damage here as well. 

And, type 2 diabetes, in particular, is linked to a greater risk of Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, and even mild cognitive impairments including difficulty concentrating, problems with memory, learning new things, and making decisions. 

The link here is usually seen in patients with type 2 diabetes and those with Alzheimer’s disease, both suffering from oxidative stress and diminished insulin signaling. Here, insulin resistance in the body leads to diabetes, and insulin resistance in the brain leads to Alzheimer’s disease. 

But, as recent research has given us greater knowledge regarding this connection, a finding that is particularly troubling surrounds the age of onset, given the fact that the age of diabetes diagnoses seems to be getting younger and younger.

Age Of Onset Could Make All The Difference

While the link between diabetes and dementia has been well established, this connection has led scientists to search for even more answers. 

And, the results of this ongoing research have led scientists to believe that the earlier one is diagnosed with diabetes, the greater their risk is for developing dementia. 

Over time, the effects diabetes can have on blood pressure and heart health are thought to be one of the largest contributors to dementia as heart and brain health are closely linked. 

Another risk associated with an early life diagnosis of diabetes is that the longer you are faced with controlling your body’s blood sugars, the more likely you are to have had instances or episodes of low blood sugar as well. 

Instances of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) over time can cause damage to the hippocampus (the brain’s memory center), leading to memory loss and dementia. 

Thankfully, not only are there some things you can do to reduce your risk of developing diabetes in the first place, there are also things you can do to reduce your risk of dementia as well, even if you already have diabetes. 

Decreasing Your Risk Of Dementia When Living With Diabetes

So, now we’ve learned that diabetics also have to be concerned with cognitive decline as they manage an already troublesome disease. 

But, thankfully there are some ways to manage that risk! 

Maintaining a healthy weight, or losing weight if you are overweight or obese can reduce your risk of developing diabetes and can prevent complications (like dementia) from the disease if you are a diabetic. 

Losing weight can…

  • keep your blood sugar levels healthy and in turn reduce your risk of developing high blood pressure or the buildup of arterial plaque which can both lead to heart disease or stroke, thus potentially damaging your brain
  • make your body more sensitive to insulin, causing insulin resistance to decrease and allowing diabetes to be better managed
  • reduce the risk of vascular damage, a common link to dementia

Exercise and a healthy diet are often mentioned in conjunction with weight management, and these certainly are crucial in keeping or reaching a healthy weight, but these can also help you to manage diabetes and decrease the risk of the disease progressing to dementia as well. 

To effectively manage diabetes, aside from controlling blood sugars, be sure to 

  • exercise at least 30 minutes per day 
  • eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins 

These practices can prevent diabetes, keep the disease from progressing, and may potentially reduce the risk of diabetes progressing to dementia.
