As early as 1926, we began to publish a column each month in The Royal Neighbor called “Health is Wealth”. Excerpts from the pages of the past prove that the more things change, the more they stay the same!
January is upon us, unleashing a desire to slip under the covers and stay there. Tempting as cocooning may be, the best defense against those dark-day blues is to take a page from your pre-holiday playbook and keep yourself engaged.
No matter your goal, creating positive change in your life—big or small—isn’t easy. But there are actions you can take and exercises you can practice that can help give you the strength to persevere through a challenge.
The verdict is in: a daily dose of exercise is your best prescription for better health. Fortunately, you can reap the benefits without purchasing special equipment, joining a gym, or even breaking a sweat; all it takes is a brisk walk.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could improve your sleep, reduce stress, increase your energy levels, lower blood pressure and reduce pain without visiting the doctor, taking medicine or spending money? Turns out you can, and it’s easier than you might think.
