Baby Boomer Women: Take Charge of Your Heart Health!

September was National Women's Health Month, and Anti-Aging Month, so this article is filled with tips and techniques to keep us Baby Boomer Women vital and healthy and enjoying life for many years to come!

Heart disease has become the number one killer of women in the US , yet heart disease is preventable; this fact boggles my mind! We are currently the largest demographic in this country and that makes us a force to be reckoned with; it's time for us Baby Boomer women to take charge of our own health care, regardless of what Congress does! You've seen the headlines stating that 60 is the new 40. OK, now let's make 70 the new 45! Here are a few simple, natural ways to prevent heart disease from controlling our lives:

•  Don't underestimate the effect of stress on health. Stress is inevitable in today's fast paced world, but our reaction to it is not. Try laughing your head off. Truly. Laughter releases the tension in many stressful situations. Laughing releases endorphins (feel good hormones) in our bodies and endorphins chase away those harmful stress hormones. Plan some time every day to read some good jokes, watch a comedy sketch, or listen to Robin Williams in your car during rush hour. Your heart will thank you. Read more

Why Golfers are using Pilates to Improve Their Game

Tiger Woods, Annika Sorenstam, and Camilo Villegas all will tell you that Pilates has improved their golf game. Here's why.

Let's face it, most golfers don't train for their sport like runners, or soccer players. In addition, golf stresses one side of the body more than the other, so it's easy to injure our backs or become so uncomfortable that the game isn't fun anymore.

Pilates can prevent this. Pilates exercises are known for improving posture and in the game of golf, maintaining proper posture can reduce the strain on your lower back and... Read more

The 'Stuff' of life and the chaos it creates

I've spent more than twenty years helping people eliminate the 'excess stuff' they've accumulated. But it isn't just 'stuff' that needs to go from the physical environment. From time to time it's also people, places or jobs.

We sometimes hold onto relationships for years after they have ended. We all know one sided friendships or marriages that are dead. We witness destructive relationships that seem to go on forever. What's the old saying? 'The devil you know is better than the one you don't.' I think someone who was frozen with fear must have stated this. After all, what if the devil got his walking papers and a bevy of angels was invited in to stay?

There's a law of physics that states that two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. You won't have more nurturing friends, a better love relationship or a great workplace if you don't create the space. I'm not suggesting you wake up tomorrow and do a wholesale cleaning of your life. I am suggesting you take some time to examine every aspect of your life and see if something needs to be eliminated. You may discover what needs to be done is some serious nurturing of current relationships whether they be personal or professional. Read more

How I Lost 10 Pounds Using My iPhone

A series of small events took place in my life recently that led me to a discovery I felt I had to share with other people – and their cell phones.

We all want to empower ourselves in every aspect of our lives, improving our health and well-being, and ultimately, our overall quality of life. But sometimes, it's difficult to see a starting point, once we've determined to make a new beginning.

For me, a starting point was partially defined when a routine visit to my primary physician revealed a cholesterol count of 219. My physician recommended a statin medication that would be taken for the rest of my life, to bring my cholesterol within a healthy range. I didn't feel a statin medication was the only, and best, resolution and decided to seek a second opinion with a doctor whose approach to health care was more holistic – finding health solutions that brought balance to one's health.

The integrative-internal medicine doctor I visited believed in establishing a baseline for a patient through a thorough physical exam and blood work, and then developing......Read more

Imagine You're Ninety
Several years ago, while teaching English at a community college, I asked a group of students to write their obituaries. Initially, they were shocked by the assignment, but when I explained that its purpose was to inspire them to become bolder in their lives and braver with their dreams, they warmed up to the idea. "Our most important creation is ourselves," I said. "Every moment our life stories are being written whether we write them or not. So why not take up your pen? Why not make your story into the story you want?" To begin, I told them to assume the persona of a journalist or loved one, write in the third person (using "he" or "she," rather than "I"), and stick to the past tense. Then I gave them four ground rules: Read more


Success after 50
With the economy adjusting after a long run of uptime, plants closing and pensions disappearing, it is easy to spend time complaining. But boomers have always had an opportunity to create their own definition of their world, and there has been no better time than now for this to happen.

Instead of looking at early retirement as a measure of having “made it”, let's define our success as having a fulfilling, useful life up until the day we die. If we continue to work, volunteer and be actively involved in our family, community and workplace until we no longer have the ability or the energy, money and pensions become an afterthought rather than a preoccupation.

Mind you, boomers have some pretty high benchmarks to reach. Back in the day when old age meant hitting 40, not 90, there were high achievers that are still well known today. “Colonel” Sanders started his KFC when he was 65, Grandma Moses was 80. Roy Kroc was still in the sales force when he started the Golden Arches at the age of 52. There just isn't an age limit when it comes to doing what you love and taking a chance. Read more

The Basics Of Pilates Exercise
Heather Colman: If you're highly informed or even if you're one of those people that just stay home, no doubt you've heard of the pilates exercise. The purpose of pilates Exercises is to stretch and to strengthen your body. That is why pilates is so popular with most contortionists and ballet dancers.

But just because people are using pilates for physical improvement, and weight loss, it doesn't mean that a pilates exercise is a cardiovascular exercise. Pilates is basically a low intensity exercise. Most instructors recommend pilates with aerobics and other forms of exercise for best effects. Read more

Running is one of the best ways to get into shape and to stay in great condition, because it is a sport you can practice on your own time, at your own pace, and without a lot of fancy equipment. However, making running your primary mode of exercise can prove to be a bit problematic because it puts your fitness at the mercy of the elements. Running on a crisp fall afternoon is a lot different than trying to hit the sidewalks for a great run in the heat of a scorching August day or in the frigid chill of a snowy January. Luckily, dedicated runners have developed ways to keep improving their skill and strength even when Mother Nature is not on their side. Article
