The holiday season is here, which can result in additional stress and anxiety for many due to time crunches, obligations and demanding schedules. Stress and anxiety interfere with immune function so stress in check is important especially since this time of year also tends to also be cold and flu season. Three immune suppressors that we have direct control over include dehydration, stress and sugar intake.
‘Tis the season! Over the next few weeks, schedules are filled with shopping, holiday parties, relatives, financial pressures, obligations, and plenty of food and spirits. Socializing during the holidays can be stressful and challenging, especially if your friends and family are not as health-conscious as you. The abundance of holiday treats and homemade goodies can be hard to resist. Fortunately, there’s plenty you can do to avoid holiday weight gain, manage your blood sugars, stay healthy, happy and fit, and enjoy celebrating the holidays.

I’ve been very active my entire life and believe that keeping active into your 40s, 50s and beyond is critically important to ensure a happy and healthy life. As a working mom on the move, in addition to eating right, I go to the gym several times a week for strength-training and cardio workouts. I’m never far from a tennis court. Golf has also become a passion.”
The unnamed woman with the weathered face stands on the corner of the street with her cardboard sign. The sign, like so many others around town reads, “Homeless and hungry. Anything helps. God bless.” Short and to the point the staccato sentences lay out the problem, tell us we have no excuse for not sharing something, and digs into our deepest held values. She doesn’t smile, but periodically salutes the oncoming traffic in a confident parody of Nixon’s classic V sign for victory, and of course, peace. Her gaze is largely fixed on the distance, as if mesmerized by the strip of shimmering pavement, interspersed by the bright shots of color as the vehicles flow by. Discretely hidden somewhere close by is her bicycle, and a few bags with her belongings. She’s not alone. Across the street is the man in whose company she’s often seen riding. They seem to trade off on corners, begging for relief, and preaching the gospel in silence.

The one thing I’ve learned in my 40 years of living, is that effective problem solving, whether it be personal or business, will ultimately come from you. The more you are prepared from your own research and detective work the better off you will be to diagnose or determine where your paths in life will lead you. I say this based on the unfortunate diagnosis of Valley Fever (VF) of my 4-year-old male Aussie Shepherd, Kugel, last year. He is doing great now and I am very fortunate that we caught it when we did.
