In my latest post, I explore the profound connection between depression and suicide, highlighting that untreated or severe depression significantly increases the risk for suicidal thoughts and actions. I delve into the warning signs of suicide, such as changes in behavior, feelings of hopelessness, and talk of death or suicide. I also discuss the importance of prevention strategies, such as seeking mental health support, creating a safe environment, and encouraging open communication about feelings. It's a heavy topic, but one that we must address to help save lives. Remember, it's absolutely okay to reach out if you or someone you know is struggling.
During long flights, the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can increase due to prolonged inactivity. To reduce this risk, it's important to keep our legs and feet moving as much as possible. Simple exercises like flexing our ankles, rotating our feet, and walking around the cabin can help maintain proper blood flow. Additionally, staying hydrated and wearing compression stockings can also aid in preventing DVT. Lastly, avoid crossing our legs and try to elevate them whenever possible to further promote circulation.
