Health

dear reader, Welcome to Health, a magazine focusing on nurturing the mind, body and soul in northeast Kansas. We’re excited to release this annual publication that aims to connect readers with resources and improve health in the Douglas County region. Strong, well bodies are important to us all—but particularly to public servants like firefighters who call on their strength and training to rescue people from danger. We thought it was natural, then, to check in with some area firefighters and talk with them about balancing work and fitness. Eating healthy can sometimes be a challenge, especially if your favorite food is wrapped in a tortilla and loaded with a variety of fillings. We spoke with owner of Optimal Living Meals for a more nutritious take on a classic taco. We also know keeping the mind in its best shape can mean giving it a break from continuous thought. New York Times best-selling author Pam Grout helps us with tips for living in the moment through mindful breathing exercises and guided meditation. These pages also feature short updates on area health attractions, such as the new Shaw Park and Sports Pavilion Lawrence, as well as ideas for an active lunch break. Wherever you are on your journey to more healthful living, we’re honored to be a part of it as you read these pages. Sincerely, Nadia and Nathan Co-editors

Sports Pavilion Lawrence The Sports Pavilion Lawrence is the county’s newest showcase for community fitness. Open to all county residents, the Pavilion is part of a larger, 89-acre sports complex along Baldwin Creek in northwest Lawrence. It was built in combination with the University of Kansas, which uses the facility to host competitive events such as the annual Kansas Relays. The “free play” section of the Pavilion—the open basketball and volleyball courts—remains the most popular area since the facility formally opened in October 2014. But the facility also hosts tournaments—including the NCAA-certified Hardwood Classic and is available for rental (both courts and private rooms for parties).

Today, VNA Hospice proudly continues to serve the community through dignity, compassion and comfort care, upholding the tradition of excellence that began with our Home Health program in 1969. Thank you for trusting us to provide hospice care to your loved ones for the last 35 years!

Attendance Numbers Attendance/Use numbers for Sports Pavilion Lawrence in the beginning of 2016 reflect a definite seasonal trend for the facility, with more residents tapping the indoor gym’s resources during the coldweather months. Facility Operations Supervisor Chad Tower says that he and staff are tweaking the Pavilion programs to adjust to the community’s needs. “We’re always trying to increase what we are doing out here,” says Tower. “We’re

continuing to fill dead spots in the year with new programming.” Tower notes that while the facility hosts competitive events, it also has a strong base of personal fitness and recreation users. “We have people of all ages—from little ones doing gymnastics to seniors doing cardio on the track, walking in groups,” says Tower. “For these seniors, it’s not only exercise, but social time as well, to meet people and do the exercises as a group.”

Feel the burn The most efficient and effective way to burn the most calories and get the most benefits with limited time is to use interval-training techniques, Rawls says. Choose several exercises and push yourself as much as you can for short bursts of time. For example, she continues, 30 seconds of squats followed by 15 seconds of slowly marching in place for five to six rounds. Include exercises for all muscle groups so you do not create imbalances in your body that will put you at a higher risk for injury. If you do a horizontal pushing or pressing exercise like a push-up, Rawls says, make sure you also do some sort of horizontal pulling exercise as well, like a row. Finish with a period of rest or low-intensity work.

Midday Crunch Fitting a workout into your full-time work schedule is no easy feat. You can choose an inconveniently early time, hours before you would have to wake up to go into the office. There’s the late-evening option that you continually commit to, but by the time you finish your workday, you are too tired to follow through. You find yourself wondering how anyone maintains a regular workout regimen when, for you, it seems hopeless. One option you may not have considered is the lunchtime workout—and there are many benefits, Shannon Rawls says. “Working out in the middle of the day can give you an endorphin boost to help you power through the rest of your workday,” says the personal trainer at Genesis North. “Breaking up the monotony with a workout can help you focus and avoid that afternoon slump. “Plus, getting your workout done in the middle of the day means your evening is free! More time to spend with friends and family and wind down after work.” Do you have 30 minutes? That’s all the time you need. Fuel first As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But before strapping in for your midday workout, make sure you grab a mid-morning snack with both protein and carbohydrates, Rawls says. “Something like a low-sugar, high-protein yogurt with fruit or a piece of whole grain bread with peanut butter will give you energy,” she says. Don’t eat immediately before you exercise (if you want to keep it inside your stomach), but sometime between breakfast and your lunch break should be fine.

No time for the gym Don’t want to waste time driving to your gym? No problem. “You can do many exercises with no equipment at all,” Rawls says. Using your own body weight as resistance, you can do squats, lunges, push-ups, hip bridges and planks. To incorporate more dynamic movements, try jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climbers and high knees. Bringing a resistance band to the office could make all the difference. Work many muscle groups by doing shoulder raises, bicep curls, tricep extensions, lateral steps, rows, and pull downs, Rawls lists. For even more resistance, bring your own dumbbells or a kettle ball to the office. “You can even recruit co-workers to join in on the fun or start a fitness club in your office so you can help push each other to work hard and hold each other accountable,” Rawls says, adding a quick walk or jog around the block is another viable idea. No time for a shower But you really don’t want to go to your 3 o’clock meeting smelly. “Sometimes a quick swipe with baby wipes, a change of clothes, and a bit of deodorant is all you need to get along with your day,” Rawls says. “I frequently have to squeeze in a quick workout in between training clients, and baby wipes have saved me time and time again.” Refuel You’ve completed your workout, so you deserve a well-balanced lunch of veggies, whole grains, and plenty of lean protein. “Resist the temptation to indulge in an unhealthy meal knowing you’ve just burned some serious calories,” Rawls says. “It’s very easy to un-do your hard work by overeating.”

Story by Gwendolyn Conover | Photograph by Pitts Photography

Whole Local Foods Co-owner of Optimal Living meal services shares a lettuce taco wrap recipe with locally sourced, nutritious ingredients. Jeremy Rodrock understands how challenging it can be to make healthy eating choices. He and his wife, Amelia, often work long hours, and they have four hungry teenagers at home. “It was getting way too easy to take the easy way out,” he says, recalling turning to processed convenience foods or ordering less-than-healthy take out for a quick meal in the evenings. A chiropractor for the last fifteen years, Jeremy has always been interested in nutrition. “It’s very important what you’re fueling your body with in terms of health,” he says. The more Jeremy read and learned, the more he came to the conclusion that whole, local foods were the healthiest choices. “Even if you are buying organic at the store, if the food is grown in California, it still has to be picked early so it hasn’t reached full nutritional maturity,” he says. “When you buy local, you know where your food comes from, and you know farmers don’t have to pick early to sell their end product, so you get better quality and more nutritious food.” The Rodrocks’ began their shift to whole, local foods several years ago, but the transition was a process, and some changes have proved more difficult than others. “I love Mexican food,” Jeremy says. “That can be hard to eat healthy.” With the help of his wife, he has revamped many recipes, including his favorite tacos. Switching from commercially produced to locally raised meats was an important step. “One of the main nutrients missing from people’s diets is healthy fats, and grass-fed beef and free-range chicken are good sources of those,” he says. Buying close to home means Jeremy knows more about farming practices that influence nutrition. Various chicken products at the grocery store might be labeled

Lettuce Wrap Taco

1 tablespoon olive oil 3/4 cup chopped yellow onion 1 pound lean ground turkey or beef 2 cloves garlic sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 1 tablespoon chili powder 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 cup tomato sauce 1/2 cup chicken broth Romaine lettuce leaves, doubled up, for serving Diced Roma tomatoes, diced red onion, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, for serving Directions Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté 2 minutes. Add turkey/ beef and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and cook, tossing and breaking up turkey/beef occasionally, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, paprika, tomato sauce and chicken broth. Reduce to a simmer and cook about 5 minutes until sauce has reduced. Serve over lettuce leaves with desired toppings.

“free range,” for example, but Rodrock says that label may only mean the chicken’s cage is little bigger—not necessarily that the chicken was raised in a way that produces healthy meat. “What I want is more pasture raised, out there eating insects and bugs.” That environment produces the kind of healthy fat that can help reduce inflammation, Jeremy says, which is important to overall health. Avoiding too much processed flour is also essential to decreasing inflammation, which is the reason the tortillas or shells in Jeremy’s tacos were switched out for lettuce wraps. “The lettuce is crispy, and when you’re eating fresh and local there is a lot more flavor,” he says. If you want to add salt, he advises using sea salt or Himalayan pink salt (never table salt). “There’s no doubt we need salt, but stay totally away from table salt. It’s a processed item and contains chloride.” He would advise buying in-season, local vegetables whenever possible as well. Jeremy says his family has definitely seen health improvements, including higher energy levels and less seasonal illnesses since they started eating fresh, locally sourced meals. The Rodrocks have even turned their passion for whole, local food into a business, creating Optimal Living meals service. A professional chef and small staff produce 200–500 healthy, ready-to-reheat meals a week for customers craving convenience without sacrificing nutrition. And Jeremy now loves his re-invented tacos more than ever. “You really develop your palate,” he says. “If you go back to something more processed, it just doesn’t taste right anymore.” olmeals . com

Fit F irefi g hter

For some, keeping in shape is the key to protecting the crew and saving lives

Story by Toni Dixon | Photography by Brian Goodman

Many jobs require physical fitness, but being a firefighter demands a unique combination of toned, steady strength and the knowledge to create a savvy, personal routine. “Fighting fires is not a wimpy thing,” says Captain Peter Easterwood of Lawrence’s Fire Station No. 3. “It’s pretty stressful. It not only takes brain power, but physical power as well.” Initial requirements to become a firefighter are rigorous. Easterwood, who has served in Lawrence for 32 years, remembers it was tough when he started. His younger crew members confirm that is still the case. But getting through the entrance exam is one thing. Maintaining peak fitness for the job is another story. Let’s start with the fact that a firefighter’s airpack alone weighs approximately 40 pounds. Add the protective coat, pants, boots, hood, gloves and helmet and they’re wearing about 75 to 80 pounds. For a trim, fit paramedic like Reba Cunningham, that is more than half her body weight. And then add the tools they use, the axe, the power saw and the hoses. You have to be in top shape to wear all of that, carry the equipment, and do the work: climb, crawl, drag a fire hose, wield an axe, lift the saw, hoist or drag a person and anything else the situation demands. “For us, being in good shape is pretty much a life,” says Cunningham, who has been a firefighter for three years. “If you’re not in shape, it could be your life or another crew member or someone else.” Brent Luedeke, a four-year veteran, adds that staying fit is also essential to a long career. “We have to make sure we don’t get hurt,” he says. “We’re all here, hopefully, to retire as firefighters, and being in shape is going to help with all of that.” 12

Reba Cunningham

F irefi g hter S tation F acts Lawrence has five fire stations, each staffed 24/7 by three crews. Most of the crews go by “A,” “B” and “C,” but Station No. 3 calls its crews “X,” “Y” and “Z.” The entire department responded to just short of 12,000 calls last year. Station 1, at 746 Kentucky Street, and Station 5, at 1911 Stewart Avenue, responded to the most calls. Station No. 3, at 3708 W. 6th St., was the third-busiest station. “We run an average of six to nine calls a day,” says Reba Cunningham, but she also notes that Station No. 3 might respond to only 2 or to as many as 12 calls depending on the day. Most calls come after 4 p.m. Captain Peter Easterwood explains that, as you might expect, weekends are busier than weekdays, but calls are often more frequent on Sundays perhaps because doctors’ offices are closed. Understandably, the number of calls goes up when the University of Kansas is in session, with more than 27,000 students added to the population. This particularly affects Station No. 3, whose crew backs up the stations that serve KU.

“Back injuries are another huge reason why firefighters have to leave,” Cunningham says. “Our gear is so heavy. That’s why core fitness is so important.” But keeping fit is not easy when you work a cycle of three 24-hour shifts every nine days. Fire Station 3, located on 6th Street, has a small gym with treadmills, deadweights and a rowing machine. When they are at the fire station, crew members have to maintain their workout regimes, but not to the point of a fatigue that could interfere with their ability to respond to an alarm. “A call takes precedence over everything,” explains Talib Muwwakkil, an advanced emergency medical technician (AEMT) who has been a firefighter for three years. “If they were to get worn out doing a workout or running, that means that’s a person I can’t use,” Easterwood says. “We go in as a crew. Your partner has to have confidence that you’re ready and that you can help them if they go down.” “Whenever I’m here, I don’t push myself to the extreme,” Cunningham says of her workouts at the station. “I do that at home.”

The “Y” Crew of LawrenceDouglas County Fire Medical Station No. 3.

Lieutenant Tyler Tuckness, a 12-year veteran firefighter, says, “I run and on my off days I do some boxing workouts and cross-training workouts. I try to vary it.” When at work, the seven members of Captain Easterwood’s crew of AEMTs and paramedics each have different approaches to fitness, but they all add running to the routine. Muwwakkil concentrates on the rowing machine when at work and then runs on his off days. On the other hand, Jack Angell, a firefighter of 22 years and the engineer who ensures all the equipment is good to go, is a marathon runner. During the heat of the summer, Angell receives special permission to run early in the morning to avoid the worst of the heat. The team also gets exercise doing “the circuit,” a series of exercises that mimic the kind of work required on the job—slamming a sledgehammer against a huge tire, lifting heavy things, doing step-ups, pulling from heights and moving the hoses. “Leg strength is important, and respiratory fitness is a big thing,” Easterwood says. “The main thing we work on is conserving our air,” An airpack or SCBA (self-contained breathing apparatus) has about 45 minutes of air. When the air in the tank drops to a specific psi, usually after about 30 minutes, an alarm goes off and the firefighter must start to leave the structure. Aerobics are critical; if they use up their air too fast, they are unable to fight flames. And putting out fires, saving residents from flames and protecting one another are what being fit enables them to do. “We go home safe,” Easterwood says. “That’s the main priority. That is ultimately my responsibility as captain. If we don’t do our job effectively, we don’t help the community.”

Nutrition plays a big role in staying fit, something firefighters know well. “Eating habits are important,” says Talib Muwwakkil. “It helps when you’re around a crew that eats healthy.” “Can you tell who is the vegetarian?” asks Captain Pete Easterwood, smiling at Muwwakkil. While crew members bring and prepare their own food for their 24hour shifts, they also eat shared meals. “Sometimes we all go together to the grocery store and then cook a meal together,” Tyler Tuckness says. This often happens on holidays, but also about once a shift. According to Fire Station 3’s Y crew, there is no shortage of temptation. “The community is really good to us,” Easterwood says. Individuals and families bring food; the pizza places send pizza; restaurants deliver meals. And there are sweets. Lots of sweets. The crew loves the treats, but just like for the rest of us, they can be a temptation when you’re trying to make healthy choices. Here’s a tip: if you want to show appreciation to local firefighters, bring something they can devour without guilt—a veggie tray. They’ll love it. Really.

There are many ways to explore one of Lawrence’s newest attractions, the Sandra J. Shaw Community Health Park.

Photography by Michael Snell

The nearly 8-acre green space of nature trail and fishing pond was built with a combination of donated land, funds and materials from VFW Post 852, the Sunflower Foundation, Outside for a Better Inside and Westar Green Team. Located on the northern edge of the Pinckney neighborhood, it is a pocket of natural landscape in one of the city’s oldest residential regions. Given that location and its connection to Bert Nash Community Health Center (Sandra J. Shaw was the longtime director of the community nonprofit), the park is a showcase of nature. “I think it will always be a nice, relaxing area where people can go. It would be nice to have some more seating, and I think that might come, but part of our mission was to make it a place to go, sit, watch the birds and the geese and be in a natural area,” says Outside for a Better Inside representative Mary Jones. Crowds do gather here, particularly for the youth fishing derbies hosted by Outside for a Better Inside. But mostly this is a low-key, hidden gem that is intentionally understated and open for anyone to enjoy. 16

Live H ow to

in the moment

Living a happier and more peaceful life by practicing mindfulness.

Story by Pam Grout

We all have it. That little voice in our head that likes to judge, analyze and keep tabs. The voice stays so busy thinking, planning, mulling over our options that we barely notice the mother fox and her twin kits parading beside the road, the ants marching crumbs of a sandwich to the crack in the sidewalk, the cardinals and tree frogs trilling their advertisements for mates. Heck, we barely notice the color of our own shoes. A study in Science magazine reported that the average human spends 46.9 percent of their waking hours thinking about something other than what they’re actually doing. That’s nearly half of our lives spent somewhere other than where we are. Mind-wandering is a human cognitive achievement, no doubt, but when the non-present pervades our mental lives, our happiness levels go way down. According to the Harvard psychologists who conducted the study, “where our minds are is the number one predictor of happiness, better even than what we’re actually doing.” So it’s no wonder the practice of mindfulness is being touted and offered everywhere from the locker room to the boardroom, from the bedroom to the classroom. At Cordley Elementary School, for example, before they so much as get out their first red crayon, kindergartners start their morning by breathing, listening to their own bodies and doing what teacher Kelly Rettig calls “grounding.” “Being mindful and living in the moment is just so important,” says Rettig, explaining why she and Kathy Dasta, her-co-creator of the Inner Essence Project, began offering the morning mindfulness ritual eight years ago. “Young children are innately mindful. They don’t lose themselves in thought until they get older, when the throwaway society tells them how they should look, how they should dress, how they should think,” Dasta says. By gathering in a circle each morning, breathing and using guided imagery, the kindergartners learn to stay fully present with others and with themselves. Rettig says it improved classroom behavior and morale so much that nearly all teachers at Cordley now use the ritual that also encourages students to ask themselves, “Is it true? Is it necessary? Is it kind?” before blurting out any thought. 18

The Deep Listening Sangha, based on the work of Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh, meets every Friday at 1:30 p.m. at the Unity Church of Lawrence. On September 24, the Sangha is celebrating A Day of Mindfulness in Lawrence, meeting at Unity from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The KU Psychological Clinic offers a four-week training in mindfulness each semester. It’s open to the community, meets at Fraser Hall and costs a measly $10. Call (785) 864-4121 or email psycl@ku.edu for more information. “We’ve had people from all walks of life—from cooks to attorneys to teachers,” says Sarah Kirk, director of the program. “We’ve gotten lots of positive feedback. Participants tell us the weekly mindfulness training enhances their happiness and helps them relax and better cope with life.” Kansas Zen Center is a longtime Lawrence center, formed in 1978, that offers silent meditation practice five days a week at 1423 New York, as well as half-day to five-day retreats six times a year. Beginners are invited to orientation Sundays at 9 a.m. According to Zen Master Stan Lombardo, one of two authorized teachers, “Our practice is aimed at understanding who we really are as individuals and to use that understanding to help the world. Whenever the mind gets bored and wanders off in search of entertainment and or distraction, we bring it back to the task at hand.” kansaszencenter.org


“Their parents love it,” says Rettig, who in the coming school year is taking the program to an early education program at Kennedy Elementary School. “Some of them even sit in on the morning circle.” Rhonda Burgess, owner of White Orchid Feng Shui, says the practice of mindfulness changed her life. “I used to be a worrier,” she says. “I spent a lot of time in my head, worrying about the kids, about day-to-day life.” A few years ago, in a yoga class, the instructor led a five-minute meditation. “It felt really great,” she says. “I thought to myself, this is what I need to be doing all the time.” Although she didn’t dive into daily meditation immediately, she began paying more attention to her thoughts, noticing what she calls, “the roommate in my head.” It’s that little voice that constantly yammers, that constantly makes lists of everything that’s wrong. Today, Burgess meditates 15 minutes every morning and attends a Deep Listening Sangha every Friday afternoon. “Meditation and mindfulness have been really powerful for me,” she says. “I have so much more clarity. I’m better able to listen. And I worry much less than I used to.” Nomi Redding, who has been meditating since 1993, started the weekly Deep Listening Sangha meditation practice group in September 2012. “There is a reason mindfulness has become such a watchword over the past couple of decades,” Redding says. “Using this ability to focus on the present moment in a kind and compassionate way allows us to live happier, freer and more peaceful lives. We can all benefit from living life fully, engaging the world without become engulfed by it.”

A moment of mindf u lness Here’s a handy dandy, super easy tool to practice mindfulness anywhere, anytime. 1.

Draw a deep breath through your nose taking a full three seconds to fill your lungs. Exhale very slowly through your mouth until you have completely emptied your lungs.

2.

Repeat, slowly drawing breath in through your nose. Hold for two seconds and blow the air out your mouth slowly.

3.

One more time. Try closing your eyes this time.

4.

Feel a little clearer? If not, try two more.

This breathing calms vital functions like respiration and heartbeat. It also sends signals to your amygdala that you are calm, and that it can be too. Taking three to five calming breaths can be done anywhere, anytime.
