AVOIDING DIABETES . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life!

AVOIDING DIABETES  . . . and Adding 6 Years to Your Life! Tagged with:

In honor of National Diabetes Month, I would like to share a VERY personal story. My mother was an insulin diabetic for most of her life starting back in the 1950’s until her passing away over two decades ago. Since she was taking insulin several times daily, I’m sure that diabetes was on her mind every waking hour. Point being, I realized if there was any “good news” about my mother’s diabetes, it was that I learned that diabetes should be feared and avoided at all costs.

Mesothelioma is cancer of the mesothelium – a membrane that lines and surrounds the organs. The disease is caused by exposure to asbestos, and it is actually called malignant mesothelioma to differentiate it from the benign version, which is not caused by asbestos.

A Time to say Thanks

A Time to say Thanks Tagged with:

 

Sometimes a week does not good bye in which I am told “thank you for your service.” At first I know the obvious reason that those statements are made to me. I have a physical disability. But the other reason is that I have a key chain lanyard I wear around my neck that promotes the US Navy.

Actively Taking Control Of Your Stress Through Exercise

Actively Taking Control Of Your Stress Through Exercise Tagged with:

Stress isn’t good for anyone, but according to the American Psychological Association, at least 75% of Americans feel stressed out every day. Constant stress affects our daily lives, and can have a negative impact on our health. It can give you headaches, can make your heart beat faster, can lead to high blood pressure, and can make you less resistant to illness. Extended periods of stress can even lead to heart attack and diabetes over time, and can affect how well you think and feel, too. So before it starts to affect your quality of life, it’s important to take control of it.

Beat Hibernation By Working Out

Beat Hibernation By Working Out Tagged with:

With Summer officially over, many of us fall into the trap of being overly active during the sunny weather, to hibernating in fall and winter. Its likely you’ve been doing a lot of exercise, without even realizing you’ve been working out through summer. From hiking or long walks along the beach, to hopping in the pool or playing sports with friends. You’ve probably been a lot more active, and feel better for it. However with the hot weather behind us, and the dark nights approaching, its easy to get stuck in a rut of going to work, going home, and staying warm.
