CPR Certification as Easy as A-B-C
Today I learned all about CPR and what to do if someone is choking. I'd learned some of this stuff in High School but was too chicken to get my certification. This time it was a requirement for work so no chickens allowed! It wasn't as scary as I thought it would be: www.cprdude.com/cpr-adult.shtml
The instructor was laid back (but serious) and my co-workers are a funny bunch. I still hope that I am never put in a position to use it! Doing chest compressions is a lot of work and made me realize that you never know when life will call you out. I don't want to get all tired out trying to save someone's life 2 minutes into the process!
Lesson of the Day: Being healthy and exercising can not only benefit me but someone else too!
