9 ways to eat better now


Doctors, fitness professionals and nutritionists all have ideas on what men and women should and should not eat. Choosing the right foods can help save waistlines and lives.

The country is growing larger, and that has nothing to do with the population. Individuals are heavier than ever before. About one-third of Americans are considered obese. No state in the U.S. has an obesity level less than 20 percent. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that 36 states had a prevalence of 25 percent or more; 12 of these states (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and West Virginia) had a prevalence of 30 percent or more.


Prepping the fireplace for the season

People looking to embrace the cold-weather season often find snuggling up in front of a roaring fire is both relaxing and warming. Fireplaces are popular components of homes across the country. Ensuring fireplaces are prepared for a season of use is important from a safety standpoint and for personal comfort as well.


How to pray the rosary

Religious milestones can be fun and memorable and are commonly celebrated with family and friends. Children typically receive gifts upon fulfilling the sacraments, such as First Holy Communion or the sacrament of confirmation.
Rosaries are popular religious gifts, and some churches or religious education departments give rosaries as part of their own commemorations of these significant events.
