d e s i r p r u S ART BY

Written by Emma Jackson and Doris Galvin

That’s what happened for many in the community when portraits popped up on a brick wall in downtown Chelsea. It all started when Tom Osbeck’s Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s, Chelsea Young Adult Program was invited to participate in a community art installation called The Portrait Project. The project was inspired by the #WhyYouMatter campaign at Chelsea High School, a response to recent teen suicides. It was designed to capture the unique and beautiful aspects of each student. The 15 students from Osbeck’s class, along with 25 students from Independence Hall at Chelsea High School, visited Chelsea’s USArtQuest to work on their self-portraits.

26

At USArtQuest, students were given a canvas depicting an outline of their likeness and given the freedom to choose paint colors, fill in their canvas forms, and select phrases from a poem that they composed in class to include on their portraits. Each student was assigned a mentor who provided guidance, if required. Osbeck said the project has been beneficial for his students. “Students gained comfort interacting with different community members and it boosted their confidence,” Osbeck said. “This project is a way to celebrate their differences, their uniqueness, and what our students bring to the table.”

Abby Hurst and her husband Joe Ziolkowski are in the process of purchasing 110 Jackson Street, an abandoned brick structure in downtown Chelsea (known as the “Mack Building”). While the building is undergoing renovations, the couple wanted to convey the message of transition, creatively. “We wanted to do something that would be fun for the community and represent the change that the building is undergoing,” Hurst said. She plans to use the upper building space for apartments and potentially create a ground-level incubator space for food vendors.


And the Winner Is ...

Grass Lake! Written by 5 Healthy Towns Foundation

In April, the village of Grass Lake and Grass Lake Charter Township won the 2017 Active Community of the Year award from Michigan’s Governor’s Fitness Council. Grass Lake’s journey began with a nomination by Michigan State Senator Mike Shirkey. Senator Shirkey cited Grass Lake’s dedication to being “leaders in creative and collaborative ways of improving their community.” Shirkey specifically called out the more than $1 million in improvements at Grass Lake Sports and Trails Park, free yoga classes next to Grass Lake, the Grass Lake Road Runners running group, and the expanding offerings at Grass Lake Senior Center.

Grass Lake became one of three finalists for the Active Community Award, joining Waterford Charter Township and the City of Ishpeming. As a finalist, Grass Lake was recognized at a legislative breakfast at the Capitol Building in Lansing. Township Supervisor Jim Stormont and Village President Joseph DeBoe represented Grass Lake at the legislative breakfast. All 30 of the finalists had a moment of recognition under the Capitol Rotunda. The finalists then made their way onto the Senate floor. That evening, Jim, Joe, and Grass Lake Road Runners Coordinator Dawn Cuddie made their way to the Governor’s Fittness Awards Gala at Cobo Hall where they were pleased to learn they were awarded the title of Michigan’s Most Active Community for 2017. The award gave the 5 Healthy Towns service area back-to-back Active Community Awards as the foundation itself was honored in 2016. The official write up from the Governor’s Fitness Council stated in part: “Not only is Grass Lake a great place to call home, it is a healthy place to call home . . . . In the last four years, Grass Lake has implemented 27 wellness programs thanks in part to the support and grants from 5 Healthy Towns. Grass Lake is providing programs that serve its audience. The wellness interventions are: inspiring, adhere to a standard of excellence, embrace a culture of wellness, provide proactive leaders, allow innovative and creative options, are well prepared for the future, focused on new sources of revenue, expand public access, and improve efficiency and effectiveness.” “Through the hard work and dedication of Grass Lake community members who are supporting the efforts of the Grass Lake Community Wellness Initiative and the leadership and financial support of the 5 Healthy Towns Foundation staff and Board members, we are so pleased to be recognized as a leader in the State of Michigan as an Active Community,” commented former Grass Lake Community Wellness Initiative Chairperson Doug Moeckel. “We are very fortunate to have so many creative and energetic individuals in our community who share the vision of our long range plans for improving our climate of wellness and who are willing to develop and implement an action plan for progress.”

Grass Lake does not intend to rest on her laurels. A new sand volleyball court is being installed at Grass Lake Township Hall with new basketball courts scheduled for installation at Sports and Township Park. Both improvements were in response to feedback from Grass Lake residents. Plans are also underway for the expansion of Yoga by the Lake into a Fresh Air Festival. The festival would take advantage of the water by hosting paddleboard and kayaking events.

Healthy Office Space Written by 5 Healthy Towns Foundation

For many of us, work uses a great hunk of our waking hours. What we do at work makes a difference in our quality of life. Why not make the best of it? There are a number of tips and tricks that you can incorporate to improve your mind and body throughout the workday and beyond. Here are just a few. MOVE – It is important to stand up or walk during your workday. Try making a goal to get up and move around for 1-3 minutes every half-hour. Moving more can help you avoid many of the health risks associated with too much sitting (see inset) and can also help improve your productivity and focus while on the job. Consider organizing a lunchtime walking group among co-workers. ADD A PLANT – Plants are great for dressing up your office space and improving air quality! Try adding plants such as Sansevieria or spider plants. For sunny spaces, try chrysanthemum or aloe vera. BREAK A SWEAT – Can’t fit in a full workout during your lunch break? Try adding in mini workout to your day. Keep light dumbbells or resistance bands on or near your desk for strength training, try standing push ups using office furniture, or do chair yoga. STRIKE A POSE – Good posture is important. Hunching is one of the leading causes of back pain. Here’s a quick way to make sure your posture is in check. 1. Sit at the end of your chair and slouch completely. 2. Draw yourself up and accentuate the curve of your back as far as possible. Hold for a few seconds. 3. Release the position slightly (about 10 degrees). This is a good sitting posture. https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/articles/posture-for-a-healthy-back

40

Sitting on an exercise ball also helps improve posture and is excellent for engaging your core muscles.

Health Risks of Too Much Sitting: • Obesity

EMBRACE THE COLOR • Cardiovascular Disease GREEN – The color green • Diabetes has been shown to promote • Cancer feelings of tranquility and http://mayocl.in/1HRBRlm creativity. If looking to paint your workspace, choose colors that are not too saturated but relatively bright like a sage or sea foam green. If not able to paint, try adding a green backdrop to your cubicle or try adding some green décor such as a painting, office supplies, or (as referenced above) a plant. STAY HYDRATED – Make sure you are getting enough water throughout the day. Along with improving your overall health, water can help you during your work day by improving your mental alertness, energy, and productivity. Plus, it forces you to get up and walk to the bathroom! Aim for eight, eight-ounce glasses per day. https://lipseywater.com/articles/benefits-of-employees-drinking-water/

GET A HEALTHY SNACK – Studies show that snacking on healthy foods throughout the day can increase focus, curb appetite, control weight gain, and improve overall health. Try keeping non-perishable items such as nuts or dried fruit in your desk or keep washed, cut-up fruits and vegetables in your fridge at work to snack on during the week. http://msue.anr.msu.edu/news/snacking_at_work_how_to_achieve_the_maximum_benefit

Indoor Activities for Kids During the Fall and Winter By Minji Kang

Colder weather makes it harder for everyone in the family to stay active. Children can become listless inside and winter cold discourages outdoor play. Burning energy indoors can be tricky, but there are plenty of ways to keep kids busy, creative, and active during the fall and winter months. Kid Friendly Exercises – There are great videos for children on YouTube that explore yoga, cardio exercises, Pilates, and more! You can play one for hours of fun activity that keeps kids busy, healthy, and active! For parents looking for activities outside the house, check out some of the programs taking place at the wellness centers. A swim and gym family pass is available at the Dexter Wellness Center--a good way for kids to blow off a bit of steam. Chelsea Wellness Center also has Family Swim in which community members are welcome to participate (October 14 and November 11, this fall). Water babies and preschool swim classes are offered at both the Chelsea and Dexter Wellness Centers. For more information on these programs, visit www.chelseawellness. org and www.dexterwellness.org. Arts and Crafts – Do you have extra coffee filters or basic cooking ingredients? Try some art projects to keep little ones busy! Homemade play dough or cutting out snowflakes from paper or coffee filters are great ways to spark some creativity.

How to make playdough!

Materials: 1 cup white flour 1 cup warm water 2 tablespoons salt 2 tablespoons cream of tartar 2 tablespoons cooking oil 1 3oz pack of Jell-O (multiple flavors for different colors) Directions: Mix all of the ingredients together in a small saucepan (mix until the lumps are gone) Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously until you aren’t able to stir (until thick) Place on a floured cut board or surface and wait for it to cool (20-30 minutes) Add more flour as you knead until it is no longer sticky (about ½ cup) Add extra food coloring for brighter colors Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container 44

for repeated use – add more flour if sticky (https://modernparentsmessykids.com/playdough/) Bath fun – Bath time can be a chore, but making it fun is super easy! There are tons of tub-safe paints and crayons that make it a cinch to keep kids busy and clean!

How to make Bathtub Paints!

These homemade paints are cheaper than storebought paints and are safe on tile, the tub, and skin Materials: 1/3 cup mild clear Joy dishwashing soap (you can use liquid baby soap) 1 tablespoon cornstarch Food coloring Ice cube tray – anything that will hold paint Directions: Mix cornstarch and liquid soap in bowl Pour into ice cube tray, filling about ½ full Put 4-8 drops of different food coloring colors into each section and mix (http://www.food.com/recipe/kids-bathtubpaints-66418) Family Fun – Include the entire family for indoor fun by playing board games, building a blanket and pillow fort, making a family scrapbook, or having an indoor picnic! Indoor Sports – Make your home a fun arena of activity! Plenty of sports can be adapted to play inside. They can “ice skate” indoors in a safe carpeted area by wrapping wax paper around their feet with rubber bands.. Baking – Make some warm and healthy treats during the cold winter months! Have the children measure and mix ingredients together to review numbers, measurements, and understand how to follow directions.

Black Bean Brownies with Green Frosting!

Makes 9 brownies using healthy alternatives to the regular brownie recipe Ingredients: Cooking spray 15 ounce black beans, canned 3 large eggs 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened 1/4 teaspoons salt 3 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 cup honey Frosting Ingredients: 1 medium avocado 1 tablespoon butter, unsalted 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/8 teaspoon salt 2 cup un-sifted powdered sugar Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 square baking dish with cooking spray. Combine the rinsed and drained black beans, eggs, oil, cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, baking powder, and sweetener (of your choice - honey, sugar, etc.), in a blender; blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 25- 30 minutes. No-Dye Avocado Frosting: Using the whisk attachment for your mixer, beat avocado and butter until combined and no lumps remain. Beat in vanilla and salt. Add powdered sugar slowly and mix until combined. Add more powdered sugar to reach desired consistency. (http://www.superhealthykids.com/black-beanbrownies-and-dye-free-green-frosting/)
