Broadcaster Press 5 July 10, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Our Favorite Healthy Habits, Tips, and Goals Written by Bethany Stoutamire under the direction and review of Leacey E. Brown. Summer is officially here. It’s a great time of year to get outside and be physically active and enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables from your garden or local farmer’s market. To mark this time of year, the Food and Families Staff at SDSU Extension has compiled a list of our favorite healthy habits, the tips and tricks we use to stay healthy, and, because even experts have room for improvement, our own wellness goals. See what we had to say below! Curtis Braun, Food Safety Specialist • Favorite Healthy Habit: Weight lifting and a little bit of cardio. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: I know a lot of men don’t like cardio so I try to do my cardio at the end for 10-15 minutes. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I like to work out almost every day so sometimes I need to give my body a rest. Even though I like to be active, I need to listen to my body and take the rest. Leacey E. Brown, Gerontology Field Specialist •Favorite Healthy Habit: Salads are one of my favorite meals, unfortunately salad dressing can add a lot of calories. I ask for the dressing on the side and lightly dip the prongs of my fork in the dressing with each bite. I get to enjoy the yummy flavor of the dressing without the extra calories. •Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: My smartwatch is a great tool. It allows me to effortlessly track my physical activity, weight, and sleep. I use the Pillow App to track my sleep. This app has been extremely helpful to me because I have chronic anxiety and trouble sleeping is often the first symptom that I am experiencing anxiety. This app has taught me what normal sleep looks like for me which has been very powerful for managing my anxiety. •Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: My weight has creeped up over the past couple years so I need to be better about tracking my food to ensure I am not consuming more calories than my body needs. Hope Klein, Health Education Field Specialist • Favorite Healthy Habit: Working out! • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: Putting on Healthy Living Challenges with Family and Friends. • Healthy Habit I’m Trying to Improve: My Cardiovascular Endurance, 10k here I come! Nathania Knight, Family & Community Health Associate • Favorite Healthy Habit: Running in the morning to set the tone for the day. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: Daily Prayer Affirmations. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: Trying to eat more green salads and veggies, less fatty foods, no sugar, and no salt intake. Lauren Pierce, Health Education Field Specialist • Favorite Healthy Habit: Meal prepping helps me eat healthy during the busy weeks. I also find that it cuts down on food waste. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: Deep breathing! I use deep breathing to re-center myself, and to calm anxious thoughts or stressful situations. Even taking three extended deep breaths can be very helpful and rejuvenating. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I want to get out of the habit of mindlessly scrolling through my phone before bed and when I wake up in the morning. I find that this wastes time and interferes with getting quality sleep. So now I am starting to put my phone across the room (so I can still hear my alarm) instead of on my bedside table. Nikki Prosch, Health & Physical Activity Field Specialist • Favorite Healthy Habit: Walking during my breaks at work or while I’m on the phone. • Healthy Trick or Tool: Ordering groceries online (this helps me stick to my list and not buy random things). • Healthy Habit I’m Trying to Improve: Limiting my sugar intake, I tend to have a sweet tooth. Audrey Rider, Early Childhood Field Specialist • Favorite Healthy Habit: Preparing and eating a family supper together each night no matter how many activities and things we have going on we make it a priority. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: Putting away my phone and being present with my kids when I am home from work. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I am trying to get in a more regular exercise routine and pack healthier lunches to bring to work. Ann Schwader, Program Assessment & Reporting Coordinator • Favorite Healthy Habit: Making walking, biking and working out with yard work part of my daily routine. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: On a regular basis, I try to park as far as possible from my destinations. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I’m trying to increase my fruit and vegetable consumption. Suzanne Stluka, Food & Families Program Director • Favorite Healthy Habit: Eating fruits & vegetables • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: I look for fruits and vegetables that are in-season where I live – they are so much more flavorful then! I also track my intake with MyFitnessPal to make sure I am fitting them into my daily meals and snacks. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: To eat healthy 80 percent of the time, which allows for some indulgences so that I don’t feel deprived. Also, I am always looking at new ways to prepare fruits and vegetables to keep them exciting. Bethany Stoutamire, Aging in Place Coordinator AmeriCorps VISTA Member • Favorite Healthy Habit: Working out on a regular basis. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: I use an app called Moment to keep track of how much time I spend on my phone. I’ve noticed I'm in a better mood and sleep better at night, when I use my phone less. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I don't have much upper body strength, so I'm trying to do push-ups and other upper body exercises twice a week to become stronger. Kimberly Wilson-Sweebe, SDSU Extension EFNEP & SNAP-Ed Associate • Favorite Healthy Habit: Walking. • Favorite Healthy Trick or Tool: Smartwatch—it tracks my steps and reminds me to move every hour. • Healthy Habit I'm Trying to Improve: I sit way too much, and trying to keep my body moving more than sitting throughout the day.

Department Of Revenue Publishes Tax Record Number Of Fingerlings Stocked From Blue Dog State Hatchery Increment Financing Annual Report PIERRE, S.D. – According to South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP), consistent warm weather led to the high survival of newly-hatched fish at Blue Dog State Fish Hatchery near Waubay. The successful hatch led to the stocking of over 4.25 million, 1-to-2-inch fingerlings. The previous high for fingerling production was 3.3 million in the 1990s. Nearly 40 lakes throughout South Dakota received walleye, saugeye or yellow perch fingerlings. Lower Lake Oahe received over 2.1 million walleye fingerlings. “The Lake Oahe fingerlings were marked, so they can be distinguished from naturally produced fish,” said hatchery manager Jerry Broughton. “This is part of a study to determine if stocking will contribute to the fishery in the future.” Small fingerlings are used to supplement natural production, maintain fish populations or introduce a species to a new water. Anglers should experience the benefits of the stockings in about three years. PIERRE, S.D., -- The South Dakota Department of Revenue’s inaugural Tax Increment Financing (TIF) annual report is now available online. TIFs are a tool used by municipalities and counties to redevelop areas or grow a local economy by offsetting the cost of public infrastructure improvements. TIFs can be useful in attracting private investments and businesses, which translate into more jobs and a growing tax base. While TIFs have existed in South Dakota for four decades, the 2017 annual report is the first comprehensive report of all TIF districts in the state. The report contains the classifications for TIF districts as authorized by state law, a TIF district summary and a breakdown of each of the 141 active TIF districts throughout South Dakota. The annual report can be found at https://dor.sd.gov/Taxes/Property_Taxes/ PDFs/2017TIFAnnualReport.pdf.
