by Megan McDonough I can’t stand New Year’s resolutions. They have abysmal rates of success, according to the research and in the lab of my own life. Around the holidays, chaos reigns, with more food and family and less normalcy. New habits are launched with fiery determination and then wither into nothingness by February. It’s more stable (albeit less dramatic) to weave positive habits into the fabric of everyday life....

Posted on Jan 5, 2017 in blog, Emotional, Guest Bloggers, Inspiring Change, Physical, Relational, Spiritual

by Amy Alpert How many times have you said or heard the following: “You look great! Have you lost weight?” Over my 45 years, I have said and heard that phrase way more times than I can count.

Old vs. Older: What Makes the Difference?

Posted on Dec 14, 2016 in blog, Emotional, Guest Bloggers, Physical, Relational

by Elaine O’Brien At a professional fitness conference in the 1980s, I attended a talk by Ken Dychtwald, PhD, author of Age Wave. He warned us that there would soon be a burgeoning wave of people turning 65, and implored the audience to create programs for older people “because THEY would become US.” He lit a fire under me, and this became my life’s work, my meaningful, harmonious passion, a blessing. I recently addressed the audience at...
