Have HEART with Connecticut Visiting Nurse Services

As we go about our daily lives, we often put the focus of our health on the back burner. As someone who tries his best to live a healthy lifestyle by focusing on healthy eating habits as well as putting a great deal of time into my health club membership, I try my best not to put my health on the back burner. After all, taking care of ourselves today is essentiality helping to take care of ourselves for our future, which is looking brighter for me already considering that, on average, I spend about 3 hours a day at the gym. Yes, 3 hours. I know! That sounds like an exhausting amount of time for the majority of you, it even sounds exhausting for myself at times. However, I much rather spend 3 hours at the gym focusing on my health, rather than spending years in and out of doctor offices. My gym membership practically pays for itself in more ways than one.

Recently, I learned of a great initiative from The Visiting Nurse Services of Connecticut where they are kicking off training for the Couch to 5K Hartford Marathon on October 15th, 2011. I’m certainly no marathon runner by any means of the imagination, but I am one who supports those that want to make a difference in the lives of others.Their known for caring nature for those who otherwise may be at nursing homes and away from their comfortable home environment. These are the folks who work hard day in and day out for people other themselves and I for one, not only acknowledge their hard work, but thank them for the services that they have to offer.

The kick off of the training will be on Wednesday April 6th at 5PM at the Visiting Nurse Services of Connecticut located at 65 Commercial Boulevard here in Torrington. VNS’s bring HEART to home care. Heart stands for Humor, Excellence, Attitude, Respect, and Teamwork, which is more than just a slogan, it is the essence of their caring philosophy and organizational culture.

No matter what your daily routine consists of, it is never too late to focus on your health, especially your heart which is one of the most vital elements of your body. Maintaining a healthy heart is something that is a huge focus for me. A few years back, I almost lost my father not once, but twice from two major heart attacks. This was perhaps one of the most alarming moments of my adult life. I knew I had to change directions in my life and fight to live a healthy lifestyle. After all, we all have lives that we want to live out and focusing on a healthy lifestyle is one way to ensure that happens successfully.

Get Groomed at the Best Barber Shop in Torrington

They say when you look good, your whole body feels good. As someone who focuses a lot on maintaining a healthy lifestyle by both eating right and engaging in a healthy session at the health club, looking great is essential to that formula, and in Torrington, there is only one place that I trust to help me with that piece of the puzzle; Groom Barber Shop. Groom has been my business of choice since I moved to Torrington. It is there where I met Dale & Mike, the experts in town who know how to give a guy the style he needs, and wants! A little off the top is a mere understatement. There is no rushed feeling here. Feel free to shoot the breeze while watching some news or sports on two of their flat screen televisions.

Since I’ll be on vacation this week, and I’ll be heading down south to see my father who moved to Virginia a little more than six months ago, I knew I had to look my very best. After all, wouldn’t you want to look great for your parents? I know I do! IĀ paid my favorite pair of barbers a visit today and got a fresh style with Dale Becker, who I have gotten to know very well since moving to town. This kid knows his stuff and is incredibly talented, even when he’s not cutting hair. Dale is also in the midst of getting into the music business by creating new beats at his studio. I’m impressed with this guy. He has an undeniable amount of optimistic energy that keeps him doing great things, like being a great barber for example.

A visit to Groom usually lasts anywhere from 10-15 minutes, or an hour. They know, however, that slow and steady gets it right every time. Today’s visit lasted approximately 45 minutes. They pay close attention to detail and they finish off the deal with something that’s a little unusual for the Torrington area; hot lather with a straight blade cut. This is by far the best part of the cut. I look forward to it every time, not only does it feel great, but it also really helps when you want the correct style.

Groom has been in town for well over five years. They are known to offer the best service possible every time, but not only do they offer the best service, they also do a lot to give back to the community. This past summer, they gave back to the Torrington community by giving away free haircuts to school age children, just in time before they returned to classes in the fall. This was the third time they gave away free haircuts. They also gave away free cuts when they moved from their former location on Main Street, as well as when they celebrated their 5th anniversary in town.

So, the next time you’re looking to look great for that hot date, or even a night out on the town, be sure pay Groom a visit. Mark my words, you will never go wrong and you’ll get the best service guaranteed. You’ll soon be asking yourself why you have never been here before. Well, now is surely a great time to discover what you have been missing!
