I encourage what I call “Flossie Fit-ness” (Fitness the Old Fashion way). Exercise is very important to your health. I believe that fitness is less about what you do in the gym for 60 minutes, and more about what you do all day, every day. Most of our grandparents and great-grandparents didn’t suffer from the 80% of preventable diseases that we suffer from today. Maybe it is because they didn’t pay people to mow their lawns, clean their houses, or wash their cars, or pick up their push mower (WWGFD).
Try Flossie Fitness! Clean your own house. Mop your own floor. Vacuum your own carpets. Move your own furniture. Mow your own lawn. Pull your own weeds. Wash your own car. Walk your own dog. Garden. Cook your own food. Walk, Run, Climb, Row, and Lift heavy things. And if it helps you, just ask yourself, What would Grandma Flossie do?
How to get better, healthier, restorative sleep, and are you getting enough shut-eye? Most adults need seven to eight hours of sleep a night, according to most studies, yet many of us are so busy in our everyday lives that something has to give, and we often give up on sleep rather than something else. Even if we “try” to go to sleep. Cool ROOM, comfortable BED, Soft PILLOW, and sweet DREAMS as a good night wish, it just might not be enough to make it happen. We can physically get into bed, and physically close our eyes, but that doesn’t mean we will sleep, or sleep well.
This virus is, in a sense, “taking over” but much of what it “takes” from us will be up to us. Don’t let the virus take over – your mind or your mouth. Don’t let it take your common sense. Don’t let it take your compassion. Don’t let it take your humanity. Don’t let it take your self-respect or your own self-awareness. And by all means, do not let it take your personal responsibility. Take back your personal responsibility. You do you! Own your choices. Own your healthcare. Practice self-care: TODAY’S 12 STEP PROGRAM

Sciatica is one of the most common, yet misunderstood, types of pain. As many as 40% of people will get it during their life, and it becomes more frequent as you age. Sciatica tends to get lumped in with regular back pain, but it is different. The pain originates with the sciatic nerves and often goes away by itself within a few hours or days. However, some attacks can come and go for several weeks or even months. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to prevent sciatica, as well as relieve the pain.
Mentoring Women and Mentoring Young Women. Both are long-term curriculum style resources for groups to use in their churches, small groups, schools or any circle of influence where mentoring is at the heart of the project.
