Daylight Saving Time ends on November 1 and this provides us with a terrific opportunity to make sure the medications that you or your family take are up to date and have not expired. Many pharmacists recommend to examine and clean up any medications that you have stored regularly so why not make it one of your habits when you change your clocks?

Over these past seven months, COVID-19 has upended our daily lives in a very short period of time, leaving a monumental mark on the world’s health and economy. It’s changed the way we work, how we access healthcare services and the way we connect with each other. It has introduced safety precautions that haven’t been implemented in over a century, like social distancing, proper hygiene and wearing a mask in public.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted Canadians’ health in many different ways. Our daily routines have been altered and, with it, habits – good or bad – may have been augmented due to these changes in our routines.
Maintaining the overall health of our body is similar to that of a car; how we treat and care for it now will have a lasting impact on how it performs down the road in the years to come.
While teaching kids proper health and hygiene practices are crucial and help keep germs at bay, as kids across the country get set to resume what is sure to be a unique school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, keeping clean to avoid illness is more important than ever.
