Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week- Ways to help prevent dehydration
The human body is made up of approximately 60% water. Drinking 6-8 glasses of water per day will help your body function properly, so drink up even if you are not thirsty. If you are feeling the sensation of thirst, your body is already dehydrated. Here are some tips to prevent dehydration:

  • Start the day with a cup of hot water with a good squeeze of fresh lemon. This will give your digestive system a boost.
  • Instead of caffeine and alcohol, drink water. Caffeine and alcohol act as diuretics and cause the body to lose water.
  • Throughout the day have water constantly available; keep a water bottle on your desk so you can top up your glass throughout the day and carry a bottle of water with you when you are on the go.
  • If you are cold, drink warm water instead of coffee or tea which can dehydrate you.
  • If you do drink coffee or tea, have a glass of water to go with it.
  • Drink a glass of water before and during each meal. This will also help with weight control because the water will help fill you up which in turn means you will eat less.
  • Don’t forget to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables as they have high water content and will contribute to your daily water intake. 
  • Have a cold glass of water when you start to feel hungry.

Experience the Cherry Hill Trails
Mayor Cahn recently talked about Cherry Hill's nationally recognized Trails in his Weekly Column. Serving as a source of pride to many of our community members, the trails are intended to help users enjoy a unique chance to experience nature’s sights, sounds, touch and smells. They are designed and cared for in an environmentally sound way, making a minimum impact on wildlife habitat while enabling people to connect with nature.

Weekly Energy Tip: A Bright Idea
Did you know that if every home in the US were to replace just one incandescent bulb with a CFL bulb, it would be the equivalent of taking 800,000 cars off the road today. Have you replaced your bulbs yet? If you tried CFL’s in the past, but didn’t like them, new Energy STAR-rated CFL bulbs are greatly improved over older bulbs. Each CFL bulb will save you $6 a year over an incandescent and will last ten times longer, resulting in savings of up to $60 over the course of the bulb's life. You can buy bulbs at a discount directly from the NJ Office of Clean Energy at http://www.njcleanenergy.com/shopnow. For more energy tips or to sign the It's In Our Power Pledge to increase your energy efficiency, visit www.ourpowercherryhill.org or contact Energy Outreach Coordinator Nancy Axelrod at naxelrod@chtownship.com or 856-432-8741.
