"Not something I need to worry about." That was my reaction to the threat of osteoporosis. My grandmother has it, but she's old. I have a long way to go before I need to worry. But now my mother has it and she's not quite so old. In fact, she's only 20 years older than my sister. The thing that really began to wake me up me was when I considered how different my grandmother and mother's lives were from mine.
Healthcare costs hurt. In about five years, these costs are going to hurt twice as much. Costs for health insurance are rising astronomically. In 1973, United States healthcare costs were less than 5 percent of the gross national product (GNP). In 1993, medical costs rose to 14 percent of the GNP. In order to avoid asking employees to help shoulder rising healthcare costs, many employers are seeking alternative methods. The most popular formula is prevention.
Studies have shown that Americans have one thing in common at the beginning of every new year: most of us include some type of fitness goal in our list of resolutions. When you enjoy your fitness routine, you are more likely to stick to it, and that increases your chance of success. From pole dancing to karate, Santa Clarita is full of opportunities to lose weight, tone up, build muscle and stay healthy. Whether you're a fitness traditionalist or are looking for something new, Inside SCV connects you to the professionals that will get you on track to a better life!
Take advantage of the great weather - exercise outside and do good for your body and your mind. Cheryl Broughton of Fitness Edge Boot Camp shows you how with bench dips, incline pushups, decline lunge and a nature jog.
What do you think of when "spring" comes to mind? Spring cleaning, perhaps? Puh-leeze. That's so old-fashioned. Wouldn't it be great if instead of thinking about the best ways to clean a baseboard, we pondered about the ways we were going to slough off dead skin cells? What if we switched from worrying about rubbing down Grandma's silver to getting a good rub-down ourselves? Spring is a time of renewal, of rebirth. Treating our bodies is like polishing wood - the more attention we give it, the better it feels and the more it glows from within. Make an appointment or two for your own well-being this season. It will change your idea of "spring cleaning" forever.
