The sun is going down earlier and the days are shorter – that means there’s less time in the day to squeeze in exercise, especially if you usually do it outdoors.
But when it comes to staying fit and active, there really is no excuse! Although experts recommend at least 45 minutes to an hour a day of working out (or 30 minutes if you’re just starting out), there isn’t always that much time available.
Heart disease is the leading killer of women in the U.S. It takes more lives every year than all forms of cancer combined. Many women don’t even realize they are at risk. They still think that heart disease is a “man’s disease.” Meanwhile, our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, nieces, daughters, coworkers, neighbors and all the other important women in our lives need to know this important information.
Congratulations! You’ve survived another holiday season with all its chaos, cookies and candy canes. Did you stress yourself out this year? Did you catch the cold or flu bug that is floating around? Did you eat way too much fudge – again?
It’s easy to get off track with your health and wellness during the long – and temptation filled – holiday season. With plenty of sugar to go around, late nights with friends and family and way too much to do, it’s no wonder that your jogging habit or drawer full of leafy green vegetables have gone by the wayside.
Did you get swept up in the holiday spirit?
The last few months of the year are full of activity – from decorating to shopping to attending holiday parties. It can seem like every day is filled with something new to do, see, and taste. But after weeks of this frantic, exciting pace everything just grinds to a halt. The used wrapping paper is thrown away. Adults reach for the antacid (and vow to lose weight) after so much rich food. Children are busy playing with their new toys.
At the end of January, are you going to be one step closer to living the life that you want to live? Or, are you going to be regretting the resolutions that you made that just didn’t stick?
If you’re like most people, your resolutions are going to start to fade as winter fades into spring. While 45% of Americans make New Year’s Resolutions, only 8% of them actually keep their resolutions. During the first two weeks of each new year, 75% of people who make resolutions are still sticking to them, but by February only 64% are.

It seems like summer was just yesterday and now it’s time to start thinking about the Florida winter.
As much as we were sweltering just a few months ago in the summer sun, it will get downright chilly come January and February. But while you can dig out a jacket or coat, your outdoor plants and foliage can’t. You’ll want to do some planning so that your garden isn’t dead when spring rolls around.
