Breath-Taking: High Altitude Vacationing

You’ll have more energy, feel better and enjoy your trip when you condition your body first to increase oxygenation and endurance. Do the same preparation that elite athletes do with this at home, 4-week, self-paced course, even if you live at sea level. This is a self-paced on-demand course.

Trying to Quit Tobacco or Vaping?
with Julie Daigle Healthy Acadia
One of the hardest things to do is to quit using tobacco products. Many harmful chemicals found in tobacco and vaping liquids, including nicotine and menthol, are highly, physically addictive or serve to boost the addictiveness of tobacco. The habit of use itself can become emotionally and behaviorally addictive. As well as the stresses of addiction, other factors such as fear of withdrawal, overall life stress, living with smokers and nicotine users, social norms that minimize the harms of nicotine addiction, weight gain, and fear of failure can make it challenging to quit using tobacco products. Many times it takes more than one try. If you are ready to quit tobacco for good and you'd like to find out about local and statewide support available to you, sign up confidentially for this interest list and you’ll receive information about tools and resources to assist you in taking this important step for your health.
