The reality is – whether we like it or not – oftentimes you need to have both those parts of the equation on board the yes train if you’re going to continue doing everything that you love to do as you get older.

Yes Wellness Blog - Be Like Gordie: Being Active & Then Some Well Past 60 Some of you may have never heard of Mr. Hockey. Even if that’s true, you’ll almost certainly think similarly that if he was in fact Mr. ‘Hockey’, then he  must  have come from Canada. Well, Gordie Howe most certainly did come from the country that is - and always will be - the world’s premier ice hockey powerhouse. He hailed from the hockey hotbed of Saskatchewan, and what made him especially noteworthy in addition to his immense skill was the fact that he played his final game of professional hockey in 1980 at the age of 52.

Yes Wellness Blog - Standing Tall: Maintaining Bone Strength As You Age You’re likely all aware of the process of human evolution, and in particular how we’ve evolved over thousands of years from scooting along on all fours to walking upright the way we do today.

Yes Wellness Blog - Blooming Inevitability: Natural Antihistamines Approaches for Seasonal Allergies

March 21st was the official first day of spring, but generally it takes a few weeks until you can see and feel enough of the changing season to say that spring has ‘sprung.’ The longer hours of daylight, warmer temperatures, and the emergence of flowers are the 3 most identifiable signs that spring has genuinely arrived, and most people will be absolutely thrilled with each of them. A few of us (myself included), however, aren’t entirely thrilled with flowers, freshly-cut grass, and – the worst transgressor of them all if you live in this neck of the woods – that infernal scotch broom!

Most of us will have heard of the ‘fight or flight’ response that’s triggered in the body by the production of adrenaline. This process was a whole lot more integral to our survival thousands of years ago. Conversely, in the modern world it’s an unfortunate fact that your adrenal glands are going into action far more often than they should be, and almost always in situations where there’s really no fighting or fleeing to be done.
