Enjoy Everyday Experiences
Over the years, I’ve closed my broadcasts with the words “Please don’t be afraid to be happy.” And these are words mean a lot to me because life has led me to realize that happiness is rooted in the small things that life brings us.
Be a Good Sports Fan
Fans are the lifeline of a team. Every team needs them as much as the fans need a team. And just as teams have a responsibility to the sport and to play according to an established set of rules, fans also need to follow a code of ethics and behavior.
Staying Healthy at the Game
So you’re going out to a game and are ready to share in the passion and excitement. Why not take a few simple precautions that will help you stay healthy?
While watching a good game, a good, tasty selection of snacks can really enhance the experience. Just make sure to select nutritious options like veggies, fruits, and nuts.
Staying Competitive, Staying Young
Whether you compete in a team, or compete against yourself, the fact of being competitive will keep you on your toes.
The Importance of a Hobby
Hobbies—an activity you feel passionate about—can make a big difference in your quality of life, releasing stress and channeling your creativity.
Caring for the Caregiver
Caring for a loved one often means physical, emotional and financial strain. It is important that we know what resources are available.
Sports Across Generations
Have you ever found yourself at a loss on how to engage a younger person? Sports talk can bridge this generational gap. But this approach doesn’t need to be limited to talking.
Body and Mind Fitness Tips
People often forget that being in shape is far more than having a strong body, but equally key in achieving this goal is the mental attitude.
Reducing Your Risk of Diabetes
If you don’t suffer from diabetes, it’s very likely that you know someone who does. But there is encouraging news: There are many things you can do to stave off this disease.
To the degree that we make the extra effort and learn new things, to that degree we live healthier, fuller lives.
How to Live a Healthy Life After 50
The whole idea of not just living, but living better, is based on family, and on our larger family, la comunidad.
