NATIONAL DRESS UP YOUR PET DAY
National Dress Up Your Pet Day on January 14th provides a special day to celebrate with your pet and show off their fashion style. Pets do become part of one’s family. Whether you take a visit to the groomer or take it a step further and dress up in matching outfits, be sure your pet companion is safe and comfortable.
Please remember to keep your pets safe and comfortable in the pet clothing and costumes that you choose.
Tips for dressing up your pet:
• If your pet just doesn’t like dressing up, let them sit this holiday out.
• Be sure it fits. Restricting movement or ability to breathe can cause injury or illness.
• Many pets like to chew. Avoid loose or dangling pieces which can cause choking hazards.
HOW TO OBSERVE
The name of the day tells you how to celebrate it; dress your pets up! Keep your pet’s comfort first and foremost. A visit to the groomer for a bit of polish and trim always improves our pet companion’s appearance. Get a snazzy bandana, bow, or collar to show off the fresh do. How about a sweater for chilly, long walks? If the tutu is too, too much, your pooch will let you know. Be sure to share your favorite pet poses with us. We love to see how you . Use to post on social media.

Try as we might … we can’t stop time. But “aging” does not need to be a curse word either and with the right type and amount of physical activity, we can help stave off many age-related health problems and yes improve strength and physical function in our 60s, 70s and 80s.
In honor of National Grandparents Day, we wanted to share 3 tips to help you age well:
1. Stay fit. Whether you participate in a sport (i.e. golf or tennis) or just want to stay fit for daily activities (i.e. gardening, housework or playing with the kids), regular exercise is necessary. Exercise is proven to help improve balance, strengthen bones, and prevent heart and brain conditions. A prescribed strength training and aerobic exercise program will help you keep and strengthen critical muscle groups and improve your quality of life.
2. Stay balanced. Maintaining balance and avoiding falls are vital to maintaining a quality of life and living independently. We can assess your risk factors, design a personalized plan with exercises and balance training and address underlying medical conditions so you can remain physically active, independent and upright.
3. Stay engaged. Successful aging is not only impacted by one’s environment, but also how one interacts with their environment. Fear and social isolation are major factors that increase fall risk and jeopardize independence. To ensure active and successful aging, continue to engage with friends, family, and the community. Social experiences with friends and family help diminish fear and improve physical and mental abilities.
“Aging” can have a bad reputation but there is no reason that growing older can’t be a journey full of adventure and opportunities and of living life to the fullest. All you need is proper guidance, proactive steps, and a positive attitude.
Chiron remembers the fallen, salutes those who have served and continue to serve and thanks those who will choose to serve in the future. We are most grateful and will never forget all you do and the sacrifices you make.
Today we celebrate the men and women who work outside paving our roads, delivering our goods, collecting our garbage and making America the great Country she is.
To the therapist who makes us all feel so good!! Happy Birthday Amber! We hope you have a great day!
Almost everything a child needs at school can be found in one place—their back. From books and notepads to pens and a laptop, a child’s backpack includes all the supplies they need to succeed. But did you know that these backpacks could be the underlying cause for spinal pain in your child? That there is a right way and a wrong way to wear the backpack to reduce pain or strain in the back, shoulder or neck area?
In recognition of the start of the school year, your friends at Chiron offer the following safety tips to make this school year pain free and help stop the emerging trend that sees our young people suffering from back pain sooner than generations before them.
TIP #1: Go high, not low
When the backpack sits on your child’s back, the bottom of the bag should not go past your child’s waist. There’s a tendency for some children to let the backpack slump all the way to their knees, which can cause unnecessary tension on their shoulder and lower back. This problem can be easily remedied by adjusting the backpack’s straps. By tightening the straps, the backpack will stay close to the body and rest in the middle of the back, not at the buttocks.
TIP #2: Reduce the load
Doctors and physical therapists strongly recommend children carry bags that are no more than 10-15% of their body weight. This means that if your child weighs 100 lbs., the backpack should weigh no more than 15 lbs. to avoid injury. However, less is always better. Encourage your child to get into the habit of cleaning out their bag daily, leaving things that aren’t needed at home or in their locker.
TIP #3: Pay attention to the straps
Does your child head out the door with just one backpack strap slung over their shoulder? Stop that habit and reduce the inevitable strain and pain that will result. Teach your child to wear both straps, not just one. This helps to distribute the weight evenly, reducing strain on one side of the upper body. In addition, place the heavier books closer to the back as they require the most body support.
We wish all of our Dulles South students a healthy, successful school year.
