The Warm Springs Holistic Health Center reminds you to make sure you get your 8 hours of sleep.  Sleep has a strong relationship to the way that our brains work. It affects our ability to learn and create memories. Research has shown that sleeping less than 5 hours for 5 nights in a row, or not sleeping for one single 24-hour span causes on average a 20% deficit in brain function. Holistic Health is located on campus next to the courthouse, offers physical therapy and acupuncture services.   You can call 541-777-2663 to learn more.

If you haven’t already completed your 2020 Census – please do it today – online at MY 2020 CENSUS DOT GOV.  If you don’t have access to the internet you can participate in the drive thru resource fair this Wednesday at the Pi-Ume-Sha grounds behind the Community Center.  There will be helpers to assist you in completing your census.  The deadline for census completion has been moved up to September 30th and Warm Springs needs about 600 more households to take part.
