MONDAY, AUGUST 26 NATIONAL DOG DAY Keep your pup cool! This heat can be tough on dogs, so we asked veterinarian Judy Morgan, D.V.M., host of the radio show Naturally Healthy Pets, how to cool them down. Her surprisingly easy answer? Apply rubbing alcohol to their paws when they seem hot. “Dogs can’t sweat through most of their body, but the foot pads are one place they can,” she says. “As the alcohol evaporates, it cools them.” Also smart: Whip up an icy treat by pureeing equal amounts of cucumber and melon and freezing in an ice cube tray, says Dr. Morgan. “Then just pull out a cube for your dog.” FRIDAY, AUGUST 30 NATIONAL TOASTED MARSHMALLOW DAY Have s’more! Mimic the gooey goodness of s’mores in seconds with this marshmallow treat created by the…

Dr. Mercola adds, “Hugging has just as much a benefit for the person doing the hugging as the person being hugged!” 2 Rest your hand here for peace When you feel stress, anxiety or hurt, place your hand on your heart and concentrate on the warmth generated beneath your hand. “Gentle touch is a key trigger of compassion, so this gesture can invoke a calming response,” explains University of Texas…
