*|MC_PREVIEW_TEXT|* https://preservewm.com We've been keeping up with the latest headlines... here are two of our favorites worth sharing. ** Your Money ------------------------------------------------------------ Last week, I wrote about the wave of baby boomers and their ability to keep spending through this inflationary period because many are debt-free and downsizing. But beware: even healthy balance sheets can still get carried away and bite off more than they can chew. Lifestyle creep -- the tendency to upgrade your lifestyle when things are going well -- is an ever-present risk. But some big-ticket, bucket list purchases can be a grenade to a well-thought-out retirement plan. A second home and a boat are two examples because of all the unseen and unplanned expenses after the original purchase. This big-ticket purchase may be a grenade in your otherwise well-planned retirement (https://www.cnbc.com/2023/09/25/this-purchase-may-be-a-grenade-to-a-well-planned-retirement-expert.html?__source=iosappshare%7Ccom.apple.UIKit.activity.Mail) by Lorie Konish ** Your Life ------------------------------------------------------------ HIIT, or high-intensity interval training, is the latest exercise rage and is considered functional fitness. Functional fitness combines the best components of aerobic and resistance training, leading to a workout regimen that improves overall quality of life. It aims for holistic improvement, including better exercise techniques in a functional movement over a period of time, better proprioception (the sense of where your body is in space), improved mobility, cardiovascular endurance, and strength. Over time, this work translates to simply feeling more at home in your body as it moves throughout the day — hence the term "functional." While this may seem like a small benefit at first glance, research shows that functional fitness training benefits muscle strength, balance, and mobility — all of which help guard against disability within activities of daily living (ADL) at an older age. Falls and vehicle crashes are the leading causes of injury and mortality in older adults, per the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Mobility plays a major role in preventing both types of accidents, so it follows that functional training isn't just an investment in your health today but also in feeling safe, mobile, and well later in life. Moreover, other research has shown that functional fitness workouts may help you stay motivated since you'll start feeling the difference in your movements quickly. Of course, it's always a good idea to check in with your doctor before beginning any new fitness regimen. 10 Functional Fitness Exercises to Keep You Injury-Free for Life (https://www.shape.com/fitness/workouts/functional-fitness-workout) by Kells McPhillips https://www.linkedin.com/in/danheth/ https://www.linkedin.com/in/rosalynn-harvey-heth-mpa-ceps-3a3aa3191/ ** Complexity Simplified ------------------------------------------------------------ According to Johns Hopkins researchers, if you lie on your right side after taking a pill, you may absorb the medicine 13 minutes faster than sitting upright. Leaning to the left could slow absorption by more than 60 minutes. As always, be forewarned that this doesn’t work for all medications. You should still check with your doctor or pharmacist to ensure your medicine is taken appropriately. How and when you take medications can improve their effectiveness (https://www.nwitimes.com/niche/get-healthy/health-care/how-and-when-you-take-medications-can-improve-their-effectiveness/article_99aa4553-7b22-56d3-9cce-994a5e378261.html?utm_medium=social&utm_source=email&utm_campaign=user-share) by Christine Bryant ** Trivia ------------------------------------------------------------ A: Honeybee Q: Europe is separated from Africa by which sea? https://youtu.be/bv0Ga_i7O6M?feature=shared ** Back in 1956, this song reached #1 ------------------------------------------------------------ ============================================================ ** Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/preservewm) ** Twitter (https://twitter.com/preservewm) ** LinkedIn (https://www.linkedin.com/company/preservewm/about/) Copyright © *|CURRENT_YEAR|* *|LIST:COMPANY|*, All rights reserved.
