New Fit Kits Available

JMRL has added two more “fit kits” to the health library collection!

lighttherapylamp

Kit 7 consists of a light therapy lamp and the book The Short Circuit: Depression and Anxiety Exposed for What It Really Is: A Brand New and Inspiring Way of Looking at Depression and Anxiety by Dr Shammy Noor. Light therapy is one of the treatments for seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which is a type of seasonal depression that usually strikes during the winter months. Studies have suggested that exposure to bright light from a special lamp can help make up for the sunlight you’re not getting naturally when the days are shorter. 

resistancebandsKit 8 has 5 resistance bands, the book Fitness Sutra by Dr. Monika Chopra, guide sheets, and 10 exercise cards. Resistance bands can be used to perform exercises for every major muscle group or to challenge your existing routine. You can also use resistance bands to increase your range of motion, flexibility, and muscular endurance. 

 

 

Place a hold for either of these kits here. You can also call the Central Reference Department at 434.979.7151 ext. 4 with any questions, or send them an email.
