Tips Of The Month

Each month we share small bits of practical advice that you can implement to improve your life or that of others.


Garlic butter mushrooms

Garlic butter mushrooms are a fun and easy dish to bake. The simplicity of it makes it a great dish to serve to family, friends, and other company.
  • Gather the ingredients. You will need 1 pound of mushrooms, 2 tablespoons of canola oil, 3 cloves of garlic minced, 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt (optional), 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper (optional) and Parmesan cheese (optional).
  • Preheat the oven. You will need to preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Mix some of the ingredients together. You will need to mix the canola oil, salt, pepper and garlic together. Once you have mixed them together, spread them onto a large baking sheet in a single layer.
  • Cook the mushrooms. You will need to roast the mushrooms for 20-25 minutes. If you want to use Parmesan cheese you can take the mushrooms out 5-10 minutes early and add Parmesan cheese on top.


Trampoline exercises

Trampolines are a source of fun for all ages. When you jump on a trampoline, you are fighting the natural pull of gravity, which makes for a good workout. Exercising on a trampoline can also benefit your heart and muscles. Here are some different exercises to try.
  • Start with a standard jump. Start with your hands at your sides, and your feet close together. Begin jumping and move your arms if you wish. Try to add more force each time you land to go higher. Standard jumps are good for warming up.
  • Move while you're in mid air. When you're in the middle of a jump, try dancing, moving your arms or twisting your legs. You can also bring your knees to your chest in a "cannonball" position and release your knees before you land.
  • Try different landings. If you cross your legs in mid air, you can land pretzel style; it's sometimes called a seat or "butt" bounce. You can also lay your legs straight out and land seated. When you master that, try to reach for your outstretched legs when you land. Sometimes, these landings can help give you momentum for other things, such as front flips.
  • Make your own jump, or research more to try. You can land on your knees with your hands out, in a dog type of position. You can also work on a pike jump, which is when you reach for outstretched legs but land on your feet instead of landing like a seat.


Morning workout motivation

Morning workouts are a great way to wake up and boost your energy for the day. They also allow you to get your workout in early so you don't have to worry about fitting it in your schedule. Working out in the morning can be difficult, however, even if you are a morning person!
  • Workout with a friend or a family member. Working out with someone gives you the opportunity to socialize and it makes you less likely to skip out if you know someone else is depending on your support. Talking to someone while you work out can make the time fly by.
  • Plan ahead. Preparing for a workout when you're tired early in the morning can be off-putting. Try laying out your clothes and shoes before you go to bed. You can also think about what exercises or running routes you'd like to take in the morning.
  • Put your alarm clock further away. Placing your alarm clock in a different part of your bedroom will require you to get out of bed to silence it. Getting out of bed is often the hardest part prior to a workout.
  • Go to bed early. Going to bed at an earlier time can help you feel well rested by the time you need to wake up. Often times, working out helps you get more quality sleep which can be very beneficial.
  • Remind yourself of the positives. There are many positive results from working out in the morning. It is thought that it helps keep you energized throughout the day and helps with sleep among other things. When you're struggling, remind yourself of the positives such as the mood boost you'll get from those endorphins.
