  • Healthy Resolutions for 2015

    by Margery Gass | Dec 31, 2014

    A new year is upon us. It is a great time to think about where we are and where we want to be. What are your personal priorities for 2015? If you're still trying to come up with a resolution or a new direction, here are a few options to consider:

    • Harmonizing your relationships
    • Improving your personal health and fitness
    • Focusing on your physical, emotional, and/or spiritual life
    • Learning a new skill or pursuing a new interest
    • Setting a new career or social goal
    • Completing a specific project that has been on the back burner for a while
    • Choosing a new, healthy habit to replace an unhealthy habit
    • Supporting a worthy cause by volunteering/donating

    At midlife, we generally have lot to reflect upon looking backwards and a lot to envision looking forward.  The move from 2014 to 2015 provides yet another opportunity to be intentional about out life choices. Be sure to give yourself credit for all the good things you accomplished in 2014. Happy New Year!

  • Women reap big benefits from healthy lifestyle changes

    by Margery Gass | Jun 12, 2014

    Diet and exercise can keep prediabetes from turning into diabetes, but it also does much more for women. It also prevents heart disease and reduces deaths. These were findings of a very long (23 years!) study in Da Qing, China, of people who had prediabetes. A group of them went through a 6-year program of diet and exercise. For those who were overweight or obese, the diet was designed for weight loss, and those who were normal weight just reduced their simple carb and alcohol consumption. In the group that went through the program, only 73% had diabetes develop compared with 90% of those who just had standard medical care. The rates of diabetic eye disease were also significantly lower in those who participated in the intensive lifestyle change program. In addition, the number of deaths from heart disease and deaths overall were also lower—for women. After menopause, women with prediabetes are more prone to developing type 2 diabetes, but this study shows that women can stave it off and reap huge benefits as a result. Not only will they stave off diabetes but also heart disease, eye disease, and other killers. Women around the world can take advantage of this good news!
