  1. Take Action Against Breast Cancer

    Breast Cancer Awareness Month organizers emphasize the need for more than mere awareness of the disease. “We know that to help those facing breast cancer, awareness alone isn’t enough,” reads the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. website. “This October, get involved.

  2. Success Story: Back from the Brink of ‘Indulgence’

    Nate Wilkins was living the good life. He was traveling a lot for work as a parks and recreation administrator in Florida. He was eating out and indulging in business lunches and happy hours.

  3.  Embrace the Season – and Power – of Change

    September is a time of change, as temperatures get cooler, days get shorter, and leaves start to fall. As the famous words – from the Bible and a 1960s hit song – tell us, “To everything turn, turn, turn… There is a season… and a time to every purpose under heaven.” So, what can we learn about our […]

  4. How Many Steps?

    No one’s sure where we got the idea that 10,000 is the ideal number of steps everybody should take every day. It doesn’t seem to be based on anything scientific or medical.

  8. At 100, This Athlete Says It’s Simple- ‘Keep Moving’

    Roy Englert survived not only World War II in the Navy, but he also survived being part of the historic D-Day invasion. Decades later, he’s also managed to become just one of two competitors to participate in all the National Senior Games, which have been held every two years, essentially, since 1987. “I’ve always had […]

  9. Exercise Keeps You Safer from Flu And Pneumonia

    Most people probably know that physical exercise is good for their health. But now, a new study makes the connection even more powerful. If you’ve been waiting for one more piece of evidence to convince you to exercise, this might be it. Meeting guidelines for aerobic and muscle-strengthening exercise cuts the risk of dying from […]

  10. Study Underscores Importance of Sleep and Exercise

    If you’re among the statistically few older adults who exercise regularly, congratulations! Keep it up.
