Don’t Let Tax Filing Season Get the Best of You

  • The April 15 deadline to file your 2018 tax returns will be here before you know it. If you’re like many Americans, hearing the phrase “tax season” can induce stress—and for good reason. Filing your taxes can be confusing, but, with the help of a tax professional, it doesn’t have to be. In addition to contacting a certified tax professional, review these tips.

Air Pollution Affects More than Your Overall Health

  • According to a study conducted by the International Food Policy Research Institute, breathing polluted air is attributed to “significantly reduced” verbal and math scores, and cognitive impairment that can lead to an increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Learn what you can do.

3 Reasons Why Your Stomach Always Hurts

  • If you’re having chronic stomach problems, you should contact your doctor, but also evaluate if these three things may be to blame:

    • Your diet is one-note—adding variety to your diet will introduce more good bacteria to your stomach, helping get rid of the bad, discomfort-causing bacteria.

    • You’re eating too many nuts or raw veggies—these fibrous foods can cause serious discomfort since they’re harder to digest.

    • You’re overly stressed—when you’re feeling the pressure, your stomach is likely to be upset in one way or another.
