If you have hypertension or know someone who does, take a few minutes and watch this video for some practical and fun information on how to address this issue. You may even find out you don't even have hypertension in the first place.
With menopause, which marks the end of fertility for women, I think that along with hot flashes, women may expect other common side effects such as weight gain, sleep disturbances and hair loss. Depression, although common, may come as a shock.
I know it may feel overwhelming to take on an extra activity right now, but doing so can be extremely beneficial to both your physical and mental health, especially if you are a boomer.
With the threat of COVID-19, one of my favorite social distancing activities has been playing golf. It gives me the opportunity to get fresh air and sunlight (which is necessary for getting vitamin D, a very important nutrient that we all need to stay healthy).

And as you can probably imagine, Formula One mogul Bernie Ecclestone has received a lot of flak for having a child when he is nearly 90.
As I take one of my cloth face masks out of my dryer yet again, I wonder if I’m wearing the most protective cloth that I can. You might be wondering the same, especially if you made your own mask from an old t-shirt or bandana. And what about masks made from synthetic materials?
What’s particularly concerning right now is that with COVID-19, people appear to be more depressed and anxious than ever. Isolation, job loss, money issues and caring for elderly family members are just a few of the things that so many people are struggling with right now that may lead to very depressive states.
