Florida Enters Phase Two!

Florida Enters Phase Two!

On Friday, June 6th, Florida entered Governor Ron DeSantis' “Plan for Florida's Recovery.” Out of 67 counties, 64 were permitted to begin Phase Two. This is excellent news for our economy! For the past few weeks, essential and nonessential businesses have resumed operations. We have seen a rise in the market and a dip in the unemployment rate. Gyms, salons, and even theme parks are allowing guests to enter their doors. This will continue lowering the need for public assistance and will help fluctuate money throughout our community.

While our children and grandchildren have their own lives and families, it’s still our duty to pass down our stories and opinions. We are a wealth of information and experience that younger generations can benefit from. This is the time to speak up!...

Walk this Weigh!

Walk this Weigh!

Seniors, these past few weeks have been rough! We are in the middle of a pandemic, massive protests, and its hurricane season again. Instead of staring blankly at toxic news cycles, step outside and go for a walk. Walking is an excellent way to get a nice kick of endorphins (a chemical released into your body when you exercise). This organic version of morphine helps reduce your perception of pain and triggers an overall positive feeling. Walking 30 minutes every day can also: Increase cardiovascular fitness Make your bones stronger Help you lose weight Increase your muscle strength Elongate endurance. Those are some fantastic benefits! It is almost unbelievable how such a simple task can have such a massive effect on our health. Getting physical activity does not have to be strenuous or expensive. A simple walk outside is free and can be done at any time of the day! If you find the thought of walking 30 minutes every day...
