Summer- Time to Evaluate Your Lifestyle 


Summer- Time to evaluate your lifestyle 
Are you taking your nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, or sleep seriously? Are you managing your stress? What about your weight? Physical activity can help. It can decrease depression and anxiety, reduce stress, increase confidence; and help with weight control. Contact me at caroljmichaels@gmail.com to get started.

I am happy to announce my book, Exercises for Cancer Survivors, was highlighted in the summer 2014 issue of the American Institute for Cancer Research. The summer issue of Women magazine contained an excerpt of my book and Morris Essex magazine did a feature on my Recovery Fitness program at Gilda’s Club. As if that was not enough, I was interviewed last week on the radio. Here’s the link http://www.curepanel.carefeed.net/event/rsvp/Exercising-with-Cancer-Why-and-How-it-Helps/41/ The show was hosted by Richard Davis. I was on the panel along with Dr. Donald Abrams and Dr. June Chan. Stay tuned for my upcoming radio interview with Cancer Support Community.

Elderly people who exercise less likely to become disabled

While exercise has long been promoted as the elixir of youth, a large clinical trial conducted partly at Tufts University finally provides strong proof for the claim: It found that elderly people who walked and did basic strengthening exercises on a daily basis were less likely to become physically disabled compared to those who did not exercise regularly.

Researchers recruited sedentary people ages 70 to 89 years who had trouble walking more than a quarter-mile. Half of them were randomly assigned to participate in a daily exercise program, and after nearly three years, they had an 18 percent lower risk of losing their walking abilities compared with the others, who were instructed to take health education classes.

One strength of the study, the authors noted, was that it enrolled typical seniors, with an assortment of chronic illnesses.

“These were people who began the study with health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, and previous heart attacks and strokes,” said coauthor Roger Fielding, a senior scientist at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts, “far from the healthier populations typically enrolled in clinical trials.”
