It’s that time of year when students are back in school again. Where did the summer go? Time does seem to be speeding up. I will not tell you how many shopping days you have until Christmas. Otherwise, you really will be stressed. Instead, stay calm and don’t worry.
Hopefully, you and your family are getting adjusted to the new school schedule. Of course, if you’re single and do not have children you will only have to be concerned with your schedule. If you or a family member has diabetes then you constantly are on a schedule for meals, snacks, medication, exercise, sleep, and controlling stress. Unfortunately, diabetes never takes a break. If you do not understand this, let me explain. First, only you know your body best. No one else lives in your body…but you. Not even your doctor. Diabetes management is 24/7 and you better have the skills to take care of yourself. Otherwise, the outcome can be fatal. Remember, this is a serious disease. Also, by taking full responsibility for your actions, you can never blame anyone else.
Sometimes, diabetes can overwhelm an individual and they just don’t know what to do. Has this ever happened to you? If so, what did you do?
Time management when it comes to diabetes can make a positive difference in your life. In addition, being organized will greatly benefit you. Try to think ahead and become a planner. For an example, do you know what you will be eating for breakfast? How much time do you have to prepare it, before going to work or school? Some breakfast items require that you add cow’s milk; such as smoothies and cereals. Many people are lactose intolerant or cow’s milk is not beneficial for them. However, there is an alternative to cow’s milk. Almond Breeze Almond Milk is an all natural, great tasting and nondairy beverage. As long as you do not have an allergy to nuts this is a healthy alternative.
If you have diabetes, Almond Breeze Almond Milk has a low glycemic index which may improve diabetes control and weight management. Here are 8 more benefits:
1) 50% more calcium than milk

It may be back to school for you but not for the Almond People. Blue Diamond has been producing almonds since 1910. They certainly know their nuts!
