The former will help reduce your risk for several major illnesses including cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure and stroke, diabetes, back and hip problems and certain cancers (just to name a few examples). The latter will protect you against mental erosion and self- esteem sabotage.

How to How To Have Harmonious Hormones. Dr. Prudence Hall

Who Asked Your Opinion?

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemail“I think you ladies are too old for us,” said the tall young man with the half-mast eyes as we headed into the Nashville honky tonk.  There were three of them and three of us standing in the short line at the bar’s entrance. We were three gal pals spending the weekend away to celebrate a milestone birthday. They were a trio of dudes probably half our age and most definitely half our mental age in terms of intelligence…and manners.

Slip This Idea on for Size

Share this…FacebookGoogle+TwitterLinkedinemailJust when I was patting myself on the back because my backside now fits into fashionably skinny jeans, I recently read an article in The Wall Street Journal that said skinny jeans are no longer in fashion. I guess my behind is behind the times. The article said there is a current backlash to “skinnies.” The new look is “rigid jeans.” These are jeans with no “give” or stretch.
