NOVEMBER DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE:
TRADITION TRANSITIONS
Once again, it’s time to plan for the holidays. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Year’s all bring families together, with the attendant joys and stresses. 

Many of the stresses may come from trying to sustain traditions that have been repeated over the years through several generations. You may also find that these traditions have gradually grown to intimidating proportions through happy events such as the combining of families, or unfortunate events like divorce (with both sides expecting you for dinner). It may also be a sad time as you miss those who have passed away. READ MORE

EVEN A LITTLE ACTIVITY MAY LOWER WOMEN’S DEATH RISK
By , November 16th, 2017
Futurity.org 

Older women who engage in light physical activity, even as light as doing household chores, each day may have a lower risk of death, researchers report.

“Doing something is better than nothing, even when at lower-than-guideline recommended levels of physical activity.”

In the study of more than 6,000 white, African-American, and Hispanic women ages 63 to 99 in the United States, researchers found significantly lower risk of death in those who were active at levels only slightly higher than what defines being sedentary.

Women who engaged in 30 minutes per day of light physical activity—as measured by an accelerometer instead of a questionnaire—had a 12 percent lower risk of death.

Women who were able to do a half-hour each day of moderate to vigorous activity had a 39 percent lower mortality risk, according to the study.

For the age group in this study, light physical activities include regular chores such as folding clothes, sweeping the floor, or washing the windows. Activities like these account for more than 55 percent of how older people spend their daily activity. Moderate to vigorous activities would be brisk walking or bicycling at a leisurely pace.
