Excited about going on a trip or adventure? Traveling can be exhilarating, but getting to your destination often involves long periods of standing or sitting. All this inactivity can leave you achy or sore.

Here are some exercises you can do while standing in long lines at the airport:  

Calf raises: Stand with feet apart and come up onto balls of feet and slowly lower heels to the floor, keeping your weight centered. Repeat 8 to 15 times.

She began competing in local body building events in 1980, and by 1983, she was second in her weight class in the International Arm Wresting Championships in San Jose, Costa Rica. Sibyl remained active in the body-building scene for more than a decade, while also teaching aerobics and running races. She retired from body building in 1990, but continued running competitively until 2004, when she suffered an ankle injury.

Today, Sibyl works full-time as a personal fitness trainer and is president of her own company, A Personal Touch Fitness. She is a certified Reiki master, a National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF) Certified Trainer, and is currently pursuing a certification in yoga.

Identifying and enrolling providers for our users has been one of the most challenging yet gratifying parts of developing Seniority Matters. Everyday has been an education, and I now know about people and services that I didn't even know existed.  I can’t believe that I could have gone through life without knowing about them.  As an example (and there are many), I never knew what a Daily Money Manager was.

September 23 is National Fall Prevention Day.  Every year over 250,000 people fall, many requiring medical attention. I am going to pay special attention to it on the 23rd, and on other days as well.

Happy Father’s Day to all of you Dads. I was looking forward to having a quiet day celebrating Father’s Day with my kids and husband, and calling my father who lives in California. I will still have a family day complete with a barbecue, but the day started out with a lot of excitement. I woke up to today’s Miami Herald’s story by Ana Veciana-Suarez on the Baby Boomer juggling act, "Caring for Kids---and Parents", and was thrilled to see that she recognized Seniority Matters as an important and valuable resource.
