2. Easy Steps to Improve Our Health

3. Conscientiousness Connected to Good Health

4. The Use and Abuse of Health Websites and Apps

5. How Helpful is Hypnotherapy?
Many successful studies have shown that hypnotherapy is useful in overcoming smoking, overeating, pain, insomnia, phobias, sleep deprivation, and anxiety. Learn more about this complementary/alternative approach used along with mainstream medicine to help us improve our quality of life.

6. What’s Up with Nutrition Drinks?
As we age, nutrition drinks can be the answer to offering us the extra vitamins and minerals we need. However, there are down sides to the drinks, and we need to know how to use them safely. Learn more about nutritional drinks and how to use them wisely as snacks or meal replacements.

7. Taking the Heat for Eating Meat
Most of us enjoy meat as a regular part of our diet, so it is painful to hear that eating meat is now deemed a health risk. Learn why it is important to cut back, options for making the shift, and which foods are best as replacements.

8. Staying on Top of Our Healthcare
It is crucial as we get older that we empower ourselves and take charge of our health. Read here why it is important and the ways we can enhance our quality of life by taking stock and taking action.

9. Embracing Technology a Positive
Considering older generations did not grow up with computers, we have been more reluctant to embrace new technology,and in fact may be suspicious of it. We continue to lag behind younger Americans in tech adoption. Learn about this phenomenon and why embracing technology is the way to go!

10. Selecting a New Place to Live
It’s really difficult to think about pulling up stakes and moving to a new location, especially when we are older and planning on “downsizing” and retiring. Learn about the most important factors to consider when making a move and how to "do the research."
