The millions of middle-aged and older adults who suffer from insomnia have a new drug-free prescription for a more restful night's sleep. Regular aerobic exercise improves the quality of sleep, mood and vitality, according to a small but significant new study from Northwestern Medicine.


 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble:The only thing I can say about this video is it's got to be watched to be believed. More and more we are shown that aging does not mean infirmary.

Johanna Quass is 86 years-old and is still an incredible gymnast. Watch her amazing bar and floor routine--such incredible strength and precision.

You probably have a friend who spends hours on elliptical machines reading People Weekly and talking with her on-again/off-again boyfriend. She also swears by her gym’s Tuesday night aerobics class as an excuse to hit the new fro-yo place around the corner, since (according to her) she burns 500 calories in this class...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Different than circuit-training or plyometrics, burst-training uses short 30-60 second high-intensity exercise with a slightly lengthier recovery period, usually one-to-two minutes. It’s not easy at first, and not recommended for beginners, but the results are fast and studies are showing that the health benefits are more substantial than just doing regular cardio workouts.

There are so many different character types it is difficult to always have the right answer for every person's problem. Analysts have lengthy explanations, lists of possible disorders, and all sorts of theories as to why every individual develops into the person he or she becomes. These mental designations explain to the educated mind why a person is good, bad, overweight, skinny, or has any number of other flaws or strengths...

As many of my clients know, if they "poop out" on me during a workout, my first question is to ask them 'What did you eat yesterday?"  As all of them know, it was usually not the most healthiest choice...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This week’s Fit Tip is from Lisa Kelleman-McClain, CPT, co-owner of Build a Body Personal Training, LLC, in Akron OH.

Physical fitness means different things to different people. Your physical fitness success will be determined by your definition of the type of fitness you are wanting to achieve, so take some time to make sure you have a clear fitness definition. If you ask yourself this question, "Fit for what?" then you are asking the right question.

The Medford gynecologist and primary care physician for women says he's actually de-aging. That's based on a review of critical health markers that he says show "chronologically, if I go back a year on my numbers, I'm younger than a year ago...

 

Editor's Note: What's the best anti-aging drug? Exercise. A must have for your exercise library is the book SPARK: The New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Dr. John Ratey delivers proof that exercise improves the condition of virtually every subpopulation, from adolescents to post-menopausal women, addicts to those suffering from ADHD. Troy Heie wrote this article for Oregon Healthy Living back in 2008 and it was re-published in Dr. Ratey's website archives.

They live well into their nineties and often times up break the hundred year mark. Their existence is healthy but the underlying reasons are often cultural. In fact, it’s not just that individuals take care of themselves; it’s a country-wide phenomenon that’s based on lifestyle choices...

Before the advent of cars, walking was a staple in the lives of most people throughout the United States. As common as breathing — and more common than bathing — walking was a primary mode of transportation whose benefits were taken for granted in the simple course of getting from point A to point B. Of course, time and technology have progressed to where walking is less a necessity and more a lifestyle, but the benefits of walking are just as helpful now as they were 100 years ago. If you regularly take part in the most popular physical activity in America, or if you need a good reason or two to start, here are seven surprising benefits that you can gain just by taking a walk...

by Mariel Hemingway

When I think of climbing I think of silence, peace and challenge. I have not climbed for long… a little over a year, but I have been hiking and loving nature all of my life. My love of the outdoors never ceases to grow in intensity. Nature gives me what people cannot… truth, honesty and unconditional love. It guides with the power of temperature, smell, tastes and sensations that thrill me in and out...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Mountain climbing is an exciting activity to many people because of its physical and psychological benefits. For many climbers, it also becomes a social activity or a meditative experience. Mariel shares how climbing has inspired her and enhanced how she relates to the world around her.

by Mariel Hemingway

For me to be alive and happy I have had to organize my life differently. I had to find time where I would otherwise have been stressing over plans undone or future desires unmet. I have moved into a space where how I wake up becomes the template for a day well lived. I awaken with the sun most days if I have gone to bed early enough the night before...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: It is so easy to get up in the morning and just start on our to-do list without taking notice of the gift of just being able to wake up in the first place. I love Mariel’s way of being in the moment of waking up, and being present in those first moments of the day, aware that what she does sets the tone for the rest of the day.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
