March 2018 – National Nutrition Month

Happy March! March is National Nutrition Month, so let linkAges help you maintain good eating habits and physical activity. We all know that eating at home not only can help save money but can help us eat healthier too. Try experimenting with healthier ingredients, such as chicken breast, fish, and your favorite vegetables. If you need suggestions for recipes, please post a listing on linkAges since our members have many healthy recipes to share. To kickstart physical activity habits, find an activity such as hiking on linkAges Community that you might enjoy. We look forward to supporting members in participating in National Nutrition Month!nutrition.png

Insights on Isolation by Rochelle Perucca

It’s March, the winds of change are blowing and Spring is coming.

Is your life representative of the upcoming season or are you still in Winter?

What if: Attitude + Energy = Choice. Let’s make a hypothesis: A+E = C

How would you describe your Attitude? Does it feel like a sloth in slow motion? Or is it

like a curious cat, interested in anything that moves?

How is your Energy? Is it like a banana slug slowly traversing the forest floor? Or does it

feel more like a flower ready, waiting and hoping to blossom?

If A+E does equal C, then the Choices we make do depend on how much energy we

have and more importantly, A, our Attitude and how we think.

So, this month, let’s take a look at how our A is impacting our E, and particularly our C.

Are we reaching out or are we choosing to remain in winter? If so, what is stopping us?

My hope is for all of us to find a way to choose Spring.
