I have just published “Wellness Wisdom 2014 Newsletter.” The goal is to share with you information and tips regarding wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul, all play a pivotal role in our overall wellness and well-being.
In this 2014, many of us have made our different resolutions to change ourselves so that we may have a better year than the previous one. Wellness is indeed a blessing from above, especially as you continue to age or you are already advanced in years. Make your golden years “golden” and not tarnished golden. To do just that you need wellness—holistic wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul.
This “Wellness Wisdom 2014 Newsletter” will be regularly updated with news, comments on news, and tips regarding health and wellness of the body, the mind, and the soul. In addition, if you subscribe to the newsletter, you will also be sent an email (on the 1st and 15th of each month) with information to boost your health.
Remember, health is often not valued until it has deteriorated. To turn back the clock is a bit harder, but it could still be done—provided it is not too late. So, take matters into your own hands, and do what you can with what you have, and do your very best at that. Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D., bestselling author, and founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, once said: “If you don’t take care of your health today, you will be forced to take care of your illness tomorrow.”

Stretches are important to health and wellness because they not only eliminate muscle pain but also promote muscle flexibility, which goes a long way to preventing falls, which are common among the elderly. Use stretches to "wake up" your senses and vitalize your body for wellness.
Dr. Robert Oexman, director of the Sleep to Live Institute, said that stretching your back prevents slipped discs, which often occur within an hour after waking up, because people get out of bed too soon and too quickly without giving the rested body time to adjust.
