Dear Brain Brawn & Body Subscriber:

 

Letter from the Editor - Eric Von

 

It was an interesting and encouraging month for us at Brain Brawn & Body. Interesting because we saw an uptick in subscriptions and we can’t say why. There were no special marketing efforts, just our usual, tell folks as we move along, approach we’ve used since we launched the site three years ago.

That’s encouraging. We’re encouraged because we can say that people are catching on, joining the movement to try to achieve better health outcomes for themselves and their families. That’s been our objective from day one and we’re thankful that, maybe, our website has played a small part in changing attitudes around health and wellness.

Thank you to all of you who encouraged people you know to go to brainbrawnbody.com. Thanks to those of you who inspired others to take stock of their lives, consider what their lives could be with a little effort to live better by doing some pretty simple things – read articles, become enlightened, decide which of those things found on the pages of Brain Brawn & Body were right for you and apply them to your life.

We come to you this month, a new set of 30 days where you can improve on what you’ve began. Thirty days for you to help us help others by telling a friend about the website and the riches it holds.

Tell them about A Healthy Body Can Often Equal a Healthy Brain, that’s one of several new articles that can be found on our Health page. And you can learn the answer to one of today’s burning questions, Why Cook With Cannabis (Nutrition).

On our Finance page, you’ll find a helpful article about costs you might incur if you’re renting an apartment or house and you own a pet. Pet Rent Puts the Bite on Empty Nesters is an enlightening piece about a trend that seems to be setting in around the country.

And for those of you who are wine drinkers, and yes, (a little of the good stuff, every now and then, can be good for you), Here’s to 4 Under-the-Radar Wine Regions, a Leisure page article that introduces you to places you might consider visiting if you’re a wine lover, is a must read.

Those are but a few of the articles you’ll find in the latest edition of Brain Brawn & Body. Read them and please, tell a friend. And in this time of Thanksgiving and preparation for other holidays, we thank you for giving pause to your health and wellness and sharing the knowledge with others you know and love.

Read, learn, enjoy!

The 5 Exercises You Should Do Everyday

5exercisesBalance and mobility training can benefit us at any age, but it becomes more important as you reach and pass the age of 50.

Maintaining joint range of motion allows you to move naturally and helps to combat the postural problems that cause neck, back, shoulder and hip pain.

Far from only preventing stumbles and falls, balance training is extremely important for everyone because it makes us better at every physical thing we do. Having a keen sense of proprioception (the sense of where your body is in space) makes all movement more efficient. When combined with fluid joints that allow for a full range of motion, this puts you at your functional best.

10 Things Over-Thinkers Are Tired Of Over-Thinking

 

overthinkersWhile writing this intro, I deleted the first paragraph approximately six times. My thoughts ranged from "Just get to the point already" to "That sentence makes no sense." Truthfully, I probably was getting to the point and my sentences most likely did make sense.

Hi, I'm a chronic over-thinker. Nice to meet you.

snapIn 2013, 49.1 million Americans lived in households struggling with hunger, a stark number which includes 15.8 million children and 4.8 million seniors. Food insecurity is a daily reality for about one in seven households. So why do we only seem to talk passionately about it when a celebrity is involved?

Supreme Court Rejects Obamacare Lawsuit

obamacaredecisionThe latest and possibly the last serious effort to cripple Obamacare through the courts has failed.

For the second time in three years, the Supreme Court rejected a major lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act -- thereby preserving the largest expansion in health coverage since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid half a century ago.

The stakes of the case, King v. Burwell, were enormous. Had the plaintiffs prevailed, millions of people who depend upon the Affordable Care Act for insurance would have lost financial assistance from the federal government.

Land or by sea, these ideas make long trips more affordable

Vacations of any length can be expensive, especially the long trips we want to take as our work and caregiving responsibilities taper off. Yet, retirees and those approaching retirement can’t risk exhausting their savings to indulge their wanderlust.

The Low-Risk Way to Start a Business in Retirement

retirementrevenueHow to bring in part-time income without tapping your savings

The pull of entrepreneurship for boomers looking for extra income in their Unretirement is its flexibility and the prospect of tailoring a venture to their desires. But many fear that starting a business in your 60s is too risky and that they’ll need to tap their retirement savings to do it.

To this, I have two responses: It doesn’t have to be risky and there’s no reason to touch your 401(k) or IRA for start-up capital (in fact, you absolutely shouldn’t).
