Do you want to be stronger or build up the stamina to walk around or clean the house for longer time? Goals like these keep us moving when motivation does not exist. Sometimes, the desire to lose weight or eat healthier to live longer is not enough. We all like our favorite foods and should not have to give them up. That is why we recommend changing your mindset. Instead of focusing on discouraging goals, how about an easy goal like going for a 15 to 30 minute walk every day? Find something easy to remember and simple enough to see the difference over time. You do not have to have fancy gym equipment to get yourself moving and benefit in the long run.

Focus on cardio

Getting your heartrate up every day is important for cardiovascular health. We have heard this many times but it is hard to know what works. What works for one person may not work for another, so finding the right form of cardio for you should be a priority and then sticking to it. Some people love to walk while others love to bike. Swimming is a favorite as well. It depends on your joints and your interests.

Add in some strength training

If walking is your favorite form of cardio, but it is raining outside, it may be easy to just leave it for the next day. We encourage you to have a backup plan for days like this and even do something for strength. While cardio helps refine certain muscles, strength training helps those muscles that do not get used. You do not need a set of weights or any equipment at all to do strength training. There are simple workouts you can do from the comfort of your couch that can help with strengthening muscles like leg extensions, pillow chest press, ankle circles and much more. You can watch those specific exercises here!

Think about nutrition

While we encourage to enjoy the meals you like, it is also important to evaluate what you put into your body every day. There are a few things you can do to be healthier such as including more leafy greens into your diet, adding more vegetables to your plate, having fruit to satisfy sugar cravings and cutting down on sugary drinks or snacks. What we are saying is, you can still enjoy your steak and wine for dinner (as long as your doctor agrees) as long as you also add healthier foods into your daily intake.

Social DistancingHip Hip Hooray! The sunshine state is open and ready for business. The plan for Florida’s economic recovery, Phase One, is fully operational. The reopening of Florida is excellent news, but is the risk worth it? According to Nobel Prize-winning economist and professor at Columbia University, Joseph Stiglitz, “we are in a deep, deep downturn” that is expected to last six months or longer depending on how long the pandemic lasts! Governor Ron DeSantis is methodically opening the state to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 crisis and a full-scale depression. As of Monday, May 18th, the types of businesses listed below will be allowed to reopen at a 50% capacity with limited seating and six feet of social distancing:

  • Gyms and fitness centers
  • State parks
  • Beaches
  • Restaurants can now offer indoor/outdoor seating
  • Libraries and museums limited capacity
  • Retail stores
  • Movie theaters, amusement parks, short-term rentals, and bars, will remain closed

Though there is uncertainty about how these new orders will impact our citizens’ safety and health, we must stay positive. Thanks to this regulation, pharmacists can now administer COVID-19 tests, and theme parks may submit reopening plans to the state! We are living through uncertain times, but we must all stay positive, everyone is doing the best they can. Seniors continue practicing excellent hygiene, wearing masks, and social distancing. Sunny days are ahead of us. We will get through this together.

Readers, if you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, call your nearest medical facility and seek care immediately. If you have an underlying condition like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or respiratory conditions, shelter in place and stay away from others or crowded areas, for the most up-to-date information about the coronavirus, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

OurSeniors.net would like to take a moment to thank each one of you who practiced social distancing. Thanks to your efforts, our nation was able to slow down the spread of COVID-19. Now that the future appears bright, why not plan a trip somewhere new? After weeks of being cooped up at home, give yourself the gift of travel by renting or buying a recreational vehicle (RV)! RV’s are all the rage right now and have gained immense popularity these past few years. Thanks to the development of new technology onboard RVs and a vast wave of newly retired Baby Boomers, these American treasures have made their comeback. RVs are the perfect ride for cross-country trips with your family or weekend getaways. If buying an RV seems like a hefty commitment, try renting one.

Rentals are great for:

  • Daytona & Sebring Races
  • Football Games
  • Bike Week
  • Air shows
  • Fairs
  • Festivals
  • Concerts
  • Family reunions
  • Disney’s Fort Wilderness
  • Exploring the US and Canada

The best part about them is their incredibly low price! By renting an RV, you can save $100’s on hotel stays, airplane tickets, and car rentals. If you would like to make this summer the best one yet, give Giant Recreation World a call! They have an enormous selection of RV’s and are trusted members of the OurSeniors.net community.

A One Family PracticeWith Florida already in phase one of the reopening process, businesses are putting up their “open” signs, doctors are seeing patients again and we are thinking of the ways to return to our normal schedules. It may seem overwhelming. Should we go shopping for home goods? Go get our hair trimmed? See family members and friends? Is any of this even safe to do right now?

It’s important to know what to prioritize and what should be left for the future. Even though we were able to do telemedicine while in quarantine, there are things we were unable to do like get our bloodwork done. This is a great opportunity to do that and see a general practitioner about any concerns we have had these past two months. Many doctors have waiting lists, so now is the time to call them and see when they have the next time available. If you are looking for a new general practitioner or do not have one yet, we recommend visiting A One Family Practice.

A One Family Practice, is run by Dr. Kashyap Patel, MD and Dr. Savitha B. Kasturi, DO, who are both certified in Family Medicine and have been serving the Volusia County area for more than 15 years.

A One Family Practice has three locations listed below:

  • 312 W New York Ave
    Deland, Florida 32720
  • 325 Clyde Morris Blvd, Suite 340
    Ormond Beach, FL
  • 322 Big Tree Road
    South Daytona, FL

They accept Medicare and most HMO and PPO insurances in the area such as Humana, Florida Hospital, Florida Healthcare, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Welmed, Cigna and Aetna.

To make an appointment, call 386-200-4982 and tell them OurSeniors.net sent you!
