I hope you are all settling into the new year and new decade with fond memories from your holiday season. I thought I’d keep it simple this month with three offerings: two great articles and a video which will improve both your vision and balance.
Whether or not you subscribe to the “an apple a day keeps the doctor away theory”, you’ll enjoy knowing about the apple that changed the world.
Concerned about the environment and the effects of plastic? This article has so much great information and even more so, educates us as to what we can do about it.
There are so many simple and easy things we can do to improve our health and movement world. Improving vision and balance, with simple drills like this one, offers such a huge payoff for so little time and effort.
A huge thanks to everyone who sends me feedback about the monthly Joyinmovement newsletters. I always appreciate questions, too. The feedback and questions help shape my future newsletters as well as create next-step plans for Joyinmovement. So keep your feedback coming. I’ve been very glad to hear readers are getting as much value out of reading them as I am writing them.
As you know, I personally answer each and every email 🙂
Joyinmovement newsletters will continue on a monthly schedule. Remember that if you want a twice-monthly Monday Motivational Minute Tip, you can subscribe to that here.
If you’re keen to check out what’s already been published during the 10+ years of newsletters:
Newsletters are all archived here. They cover health, fitness, philosophy, living a good life, healthy aging, and so much more.
And should you care to learn more about traveling, and especially about using miles and points to travel more for less, here’s where to start. Make sure to check out my hotel reviews before you choose your hotel. And if you’re a coffee drinker, here’s where to find the best coffee in cities around the world.
I spent the holidays in Taiwan and Vietnam. First time in Taipei and second visit to Vietnam. Great trip! One thing remains abundantly clear. Walking around cities (I average 8-9 miles a day) and travel in general, requires stamina, strength, good vision and balance for negotiating sidewalks, curbs and crossing traffic, and a digestive system that’s working well. It’s a blessing that all my years of following a health and fitness oriented lifestyle pays off.
I don’t make New Year’s resolutions, per se, though I do write and reflect on my past year. I also look ahead and choose one or two aspects of how I spend my time and energy that might need some tweaking. For 2020, I’ve chosen the motto “move with more variety.” By this I mean that my movement map needs to grow because I tend to do the same fitness routines day in and day out. I’ve already started to add Tai Chi back into my movement choices and it feels great. Free form dancing around the living room? Yes…….movement with no prescribed steps fits the bill.
Did you make resolutions that focus on your health and fitness? Do you feel your movement map needs to grow? Big plans (or small but meaningful plans) for 2020 travels? Drop me a line and tell me about it.
You can support my work by subscribing to one of my newsletters, reading about my travel adventures, taking a look at some of the products and services I use and recommend, doing your Amazon shopping via this link and/or telling a friend about it. You can also buy me a coffee if that’s more your thing. Thanks so very much!
Happy New Year! Keep finding Joyinmovement wherever and however works for YOU.
