Can You Have a Sweet Purim?

So, as the festive holiday of Purim approaches, I think about the same thing as I do when Halloween comes and goes... candy!

Is it just me? Or does anyone else wonder who thought of these holidays that became synonymous with candy/sweets overload?

One might think it was a dentist! However, it seems that we are the only ones creating an awareness and caution to its challenge. I found that the suggestion of giving out apple slices for trick or treat or in Purim baskets was voted down by my family unanimously year after year.

I recently attended an interactive workshop on senior fitness to better serve this important, unique and growing population.

Google it.” I thought wow, I just learned the entire field of senior fitness—the longer you can stand on one foot, the better!

Confession: I’ve taken a few liberties here. This isn’t an exact quote from the Hillel of fitness professionals. But my instructor did let me in on one of the best-kept secrets in the health and wellness field. A secret I am happy to share with you today.  The key to long life is in your hands...
