Continuing with the series on "The Great Cascade" of decline.  This week we'll visit the effects that Exercise and Enviornment have on ones ability to stay independent. 

This is an overview of how these two components factor in and contribute to the "Great Cascade" of decline. 

We hear daily how important exercise is for shedding excess pounds and keeping our body functioning at it's best, but what about the body thats past it's prime? Isn't it inevitable that we get weaker, have decreased balance and stiffer joints, less muscle and more fat as we age? What if this wasn't the total story?  Is there anything we can do to combat and even reverse these things?

We'll talk about several things in the enviornment that need to be addressed as soon as possible and which ones can be put off until later if funds are an issue.

Tune in and bring your questions comments or dilemmas and lets strategize on how to decrease the speed and actually reverse some of these risks.
