“In every walk with nature, one receives far more than he seeks.” – John Muir

April is a special month for considering the natural world and our connection to it. Earth Day happens in April, and it may be the first month of the new year that brings enough sunshine and thawing to begin spending more time outdoors again.Tiki Boardbag Tripper Fish 5.9 Surfboard Bag Surfer Bag

In keeping with this year’s theme of contemplating life’s greater meanings, I’ve been thinking about the many gifts nature presents, and several come to mind. Forget for a moment the idea of going out to exercise, and instead, take a step outside to experience what it feels like to simply stand in a lush green area. Do you hear the sounds of birds and insects? Can you feel the warmth of the sun on your face as you turn it up to the sky with your eyes closed? Even spending a few moments outdoors brings peace.SEAC Women Full Body Wetsuit 3mm Neoprene Jumpsuit Girls Divingsuits Snorkeling

There is joy in taking our cues from nature. Seasons do not change overnight; they transition over time. If you feel your body needs time to catch up with the mind, listen to it. Start increasing your time outdoors and in the benefits of nature by taking a 10-minute walk with a friend or reading a chapter of your book outside. Focus on how nice it is to pause and inhale fresh air rather than rushing to your next destination.

Do not be surprised if you feel compelled to spend more and more time outdoors, and don’t underestimate how doing so strengthens your mind-body connection. Mother Nature is the friend who is always happy to hear your thoughts.

Cramped handwriting

The shift from regular handwriting to small, cramped letters is known as micrographia, a condition that is often linked to neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s.

There is currently no known cure for Parkinson’s disease, but recognizing the warning signs as early as possible and taking action on interventions, such as exercise and therapy, can help slow the disease process. Showing signs of one or more of these symptoms does not necessarily determine a Parkinson’s diagnosis, but it’s always best to speak with your health care provider if you begin to notice a combination of these symptoms.

If you do have a loved one with a known Parkinson’s diagnosis, there are a few precautions you can take to make sure they remain as healthy and happy as possible. It’s important to help them manage their daily medications, assist in making financial decisions regarding medical treatment, and provide daily care as you contemplate in-home care or amove to a residential community. Touchmark’s Gold Standard hospitality, award-winning Full Life Wellness & Life Enrichment Program, certified fitness professionals, and ADIDAS AC Milán Camiseta de Fuera 2016 2017 whiteO are available 24/7 to ensure residents receive the services they need and a full, enriched life.

While more than one million Americans and Canadians will be living with Parkinson’s by next year, it’s important to note that people with Parkinson’s can still live a full and active life, especially if diagnosed early. By familiarizing yourself with the early warning signs, many of which are noticeable up to 10 years before motor functions are severely affected, you can ensure a higher quality of life. We recommend speaking to your doctor if any of these symptoms regularly occur. In addition, our team at Touchmark is always available to Derbystar APS PredEZIONI Zelos Guanto black about the services we provide for families living with this increasing disease.

As one of the hardest-working muscles in your body, it comes as no surprise that the human heart has a significant impact on the functionality of the body’s other organs. Your brain relies on your heart to deliver a continuous blood supply, so the healthier your heart, the lower your risk of developing dementia and heart disease.

With February being American Heart Month, it’s a great time to focus on how you can improve both your heartand your brain with just a few simple changes, including some surprises you canenjoy this season.

The Expresso HD bike is one example .This stationary bike gives users an interactive riding experience that is funand works large muscle groups while stimulating the brain.

Resident and Club member Bill Hines discovered the bike is a good exercise alternative when he doesn’t take his road bicycle out on trails around Edmond. “I don’t want to sit somewhere and stare at the wall,” he says. “This gives me a way to feel like I’m really there. It’s neat. I can shift gears. I can steer. I can watch peoplepass me on the road and try to peddle faster to pass them up.”

We recommend individuals exercise for 30 – 60 minutes a day and include cardio, strength training, flexibility, and balance in their routines.

Sitting is the new smoking, according to Maillot Bayern Munich Klinsmann Munchen Adidas Opel vintage Jersey - XXL performed by the Mayo Clinic. While it may sound like an extreme claim, it holds true. After just 30 minutes of sitting, our body’s metabolism slows down by 90%, good cholesterol drops by 20%, and we become likelier to develop high blood pressure and blood sugar.

There is good news, though. Moving for just five minutes after 30 minutes of sitting can greatly improveyour health over time. This small amount of movement will help protect yourmuscles from deteriorating, increase your energy, and assist you in keeping offunwanted weight.

If you spend hours reading or looking at your computer each day, investing in a standing desk can help you stay on your feet and get your blood flowing. Transitioning to a standing desk can also reduce back and neck pain, according to Start Standing.

Next time a friend or family member suggests you get together, say yes. Studies show that routinely interacting with friends and loved ones can improve your physical health by strengthening your immune system and fighting off common sicknesses.

While all social interactions can improve your health, face-to-face interactions are best. After all, humans are social creatures and have always done best when interacting within a community and social setting.

Having a healthy heart and brain starts by committing to these changes daily. To learn more about the different health and wellness programs offered at Touchmark, visit our website, MIZUNO Soccer Futsal shoes MONARCIDA SALA SELECT IN WIDE White US8.5(26.5cm). Happy Heart Month!

If you are a pet lover, you’ll most likely be one all of your life. Those who have owned pets know just how rewarding having a furry friend can be, and how pets quickly become members of our families.

People derive many emotional benefits from owning a pet, even more so as older adults. In this post, we’ll examine some of the best reasons why you should consider having a cat or dog (or other pet) around in retirement.

Even if you’re an introvert, everyone needs socialization in their lives, lest we feel lonely and isolated. Though your cat or dog can’t “talk,” they are more than capable of providing friendship and loyalty. Maglia Inter Finale Champions League 2010 Triplete Zanetti Milito Icardi calcioJust like humans, domestic pets have unique personalities, skills, and habits that you can treasure and enjoy.

For most of us, the most enjoyable form of exercise is the one that doesn’t actually feel like exercise. Going on a leisurely stroll outside with your dog each day is a great way to get moving and feels completely different mentally than tracking your time on the treadmill. It’s fantastic for your dog’s health, and yours! You can exercise with a cat as well by engaging in high-energy play throughout the day.

Being a caretaker is a big responsibility that can provide a meaningful significance in our lives. Knowing your pet depends on you for their well-being, happiness, and health is a great motivator to keep active and positive. Everyone deserves to feel needed and appreciated.

Did you know that scientific research tells us that holding or petting an animal is an effective form of stress relief? Specifically, it lowers blood pressure and reduces cortisol levels. Cortisol production is the leading cause of physiological stress and anxiety. What better way to achieve serenity than to snuggle with a soft and cuddly companion?

If you’ve grown accustomed to living with a spouse or partner, it can be challenging to maintain that sense of security after they’re gone. Though having a pet cannot replace your loved one, it can help you feel safer at night or when you’re alone. Dogs also serve as excellent deterrents for burglars if home safety is a concern for you when you’re out.Maillot jersey maglia shirt trikot Borussia dortmund blaszczykowski XL poland Even tiny dogs sound intimidating when barking behind a closed door!

Having some things to do each day provides stability and structure from which nearly everyone benefits. Incidentally, pets best behave when they have a routine and boundaries, too. Keeping even a loose daily regimen with your pet will provide the foundation you both need to find comfort in your home life and free up your brain for more exciting activities.

Having a pet is a hobby that you can share with others if you choose to view it as such. You may see the same people walking their pets each day, or run into familiar faces at the dog park or groomer. These days, there are groups that exist solely to participate in pet-centric activities and excursions.Maglia Nazionale FRANCIA senza numero So if you feel like you’d like to expand your friendship circle, hop online and see if others are nearby who want to plan a pug playdate or a mastiff meetup.

In summary, life is better with friends. If you feel something is missing in your life, or you’d like it to be sweeter, consider adopting a pet today. You’ll be doing yourself and your companion a world of good!

Image of Earl, demonstrating Tai chi

My tai chi journey started about four years before my major medical event. Tai chi was initially a way to stay at least peripherally connected with my martial arts background as I aged, but classes then became a big part of my recovery from sudden onset paralysis due to a brain mass and rare infection. One morning in late October 2012, I simply could not get up out of bed. A head CT at the emergency room revealed a two-centimeter benign tumor in my right frontal lobe. Fortunately, my vitals stabilized, and a surgeon removed the mass several days later. Despite the tumor removal, I spent nine long days completely paralyzed on my left side due to inflammation from the infection. It was unclear how much mobility I would regain.

The gentle slow-moving art of tai chi focuses on balance and body awareness. It is incredibly beneficial to anyone suffering from mobility or balance issues, and can even be learned and practiced while seated. Shifting weight from one leg to the other and stepping forces both sides of the body to work. Simply learning the form also helps with memory, as the 108-move Yang-style (long) form consists of three distinct sections. While tai chi is fundamentally a martial art, it can be practiced by anyone and is not at all aggressive. The best description is “a moving meditation.”

I am thankful I was able to call upon my tai chi skills which helped in physical therapy. Balance, awareness of my center, and being able to funnel chi (energy) into my paralyzed left side helped tremendously. I recovered my ability to walk, work, and play guitar and ukulele. At Touchmark Meridian, we are very lucky to have Jeffrey Vik—one of the best instructors that I’ve ever encountered anywhere. Join us for the next class and feel the stress melt away!
