Chat With Joyce Hanna Who At 87 Exemplifies The Importance Of Staying Fit and Active
By Larry Hayes

Joyce is an exercise physiologist, nutritionist, health educator, health promotion specialist and former competitive marathon runner. She was ranked #26 in the nation when she was 45.

Q: How do you stay fit and active at 87?

I started running before the fitness boom in the 1960s and that became a big part of my life for many decades--running or hiking in the mountains-- Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Everest, Pikes Peak and many marathons."

Ageism Sucks!
Bad For People.
Bad For Business

--Ken Dychtwald, CEO Age Wave

Due to America’s obsession with youth – ironically formulated and solidified when Boomers were young – most product and service developers and marketers direct most of their attention to Millennials and Gen Zers.

But those cohorts are predominantly broke, time-constrained and only marginally loyal to products and services.

Focusing on the historically “sought-after youth market” is a costly mistake when today’s older men and women now have considerable wealth, time and interests to satisfy.

Favorite Vacation
Like Visiting Another Country
By Bill Moniz, World Traveler

 My wife and I have been to Southeastern Alaska, so we decided to see the roads less traveled.

Alaska is big featuring midnight sun, vast open spaces, snow capped mountains, dirt highways, grizzly bears, swarms of mosquitos and
flies, fjords and glaciers.

Other highlights include the Alaska pipeline, the Yukon River and old gold mining towns,
wild animals roaming freely,
the Arctic circle and Denali Park with the highest mountain in North America at 20,343 feet.

Tips For Focusing
On Your Health

• Be pos­i­tive in your con­ver­sa­tions and your actions every day.

• Surround yourself with upbeat, active people.

• Walk like a vibrant, healthy per­son. Take the time to enjoy conversations along the way.

• Find your inner artist. Try out that new hobby you’ve always been thinking about.

• Make this month the time to set up your annual phys­i­cal and other health screen­ings.

• Get your flu shot! They’re available now and it’s a great way to care for your health.
