    The Stones Experience – A Tribute to Mick Jagger and Youthful Aging

    in Health

    Welcome to the Healthy Baby Boomers Network Blog Talk Radio Show.  I am your host, Dr. Erica Goodstone, Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Spiritual Relationship Healer and Somatic Body Psychotherapist, Helping Men and Women Heal Their Bodies and Their Relationships Through Love, author of the book: Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me and the romantic novel, Love in the Blizzard of Life, and creator of Healing Through Love Seminars, Love Me, Touch Me, Heal Me Relationship System and the upcoming 30 Day Love Challenge.


    Today I am speaking with John vanZyl, an entertainer whose work I have observed through my blogging tribe.  At 6yrs of age his family emigrated to Australia from Holland.  His father, a bricklayer, was seeking a new life for his family, away from war torn Europe.  From an early age John was hooked on music, listening to such music greats as The Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis. to name a few. And then his dream of becoming another famous musician blossomed when he was 12 and his family moved to the big smoke, the big city of Adelaide.  From age 16 until now, at the age of 68, John’s life has revolved around music playing all sorts of roles and gigs.  Starting as a drummer, he switched to vocals, later back to drums for about five years.  He played piano for 5 years and classical guitar and even taught guitar for about 6 years.  No matter what he tried, look out into a big audience and see all the people out there with big smiles on their faces having a great time.  Now he performs the role of Mic

    in Health

    Good morning and welcome to Get Healthy Now with Denise Thomson, founder of Miclknight, where health and wellness are one. I am an educator, speaker, author, fitness trainer and passionate about healthy living.


    Gift: at the end


    Topic: Sleep


    What exactly is sleep? What is it's definition? (Wikipedia)


    How much sleep do we need to feel good the next morning?


    Rule of thumb:


    Newborns (0-3months)  14-17 hours


    Infants (4-11 months)   12 - 15 hours


    Toddlers (1-2 years)     11 - 14 hours


    Preschoolers (3-5 years)  10 - 13 hours


    School-age children (6-13 years)   9 - 11 hours


    Teenagers (14-17 years)      8 - 10 hours


    Young Adults (18-25 years) & Adults (26-64 years)   7 - 9 hours


    Older Adults (65 and over)    7 - 8 hours.


    Why is sleep so important in our lives?


    ~60% of waste products produced during sleep, body recovers, skin restores, 


    Lack of sleep: slows down healing process, motor skills are slower, tremors from lack of sleep or too much caffeine....


    Why does good sleep improve our health?


    Where do you sleep the best, your own bed or anywhere? Why? Mattress, pillow, blanket, different bed, unfamiliar room, ...


    Who decides on whether or not we sleep well?


    For children it's the parents......


    For adults..... they decide.....


    Good, deep, and solid sleeps makes you feel so good that you can say upon waking up in the morning:


    "Today is the best day of my life again!!!"


    Conclusion:


    Answer the above questions for yourself and see where you can improve.

    Aging at Home, or Accommodating our Limitations

    in Health

    Robert Kaplan of "OK 2 Age at Home" speaks with Robin and Joyce about modifications that can be made to one's home to make it safer for yourself, for an aging parent, or for anyone with a disability.


    Our abilities change as we get older.  Sometimes it is difficult to accept that our capabilities have changed, and to accept and face the "new normal."  The most important thing it to avoid falling.  The older we are, the more serious an injury a fall can create -- falling out of bed, falling on the steps, or in the bathroom.  There are a number of modifications that can be made -- in ways that can enhance the value of the home -- that can make it safer and more realistic to remain at home.


    We need first to consider: is this the place where I want to be?  Is it accessible to grocery store and services? to social activities? or would it in fact be better to move?


    If it's the right place to be, then is it possible to live on one floor? or to add a stair lift?  Is it safe to get into the home? Should we add railings or a ramp?


    Is the bathroom safe?  Would it be wise to add grab bars, a shower seat, or a bathtub seat where you can sit first and swing your legs into the tub?  Is the floor too slippery?


    We discuss these issues and more on the Powerful Patient
