During the long cold winter season, our bodies practically ache with the desire to move around outdoors in nice temperatures, unencumbered by heavy clothing, gloves and boots. But when the dog days of summer arrive, we need to be prepared because exercising in the heat can be risky.
Our bodies regulate heat by releasing sweat which allows us to cool down. And, when the body is sweating, it’s losing fluid. If your body can no longer cool itself down, it starts storing heat inside resulting in a rise to your core temperature, putting your internal organs and central nervous system at risk.

So why let age become a barrier? Despite our aching joints (or maybe because of them), adding a healthy dose of fitness can go a long way to improving the quality of our lives.

It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver. – Mahatma Gandhi
Every June, Americans spend time wracking their brains over what to get their fathers or husbands for Father’s Day … Another tie? A bottle of wine or after-shave? How about a power tool? Fishing rod? CD? Funny t-shirt? Ugh!!!
I don’t know about your father or husband, but neither of mine are interested in more “stuff.” So, this year, why not consider giving a gift that is really valuable – the gift of good health.
According to the World Health Organization, good health is a “state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” A truly meaningful gift can help the men in our lives achieve this state of well-being.
