As the summer season and promise of fair-weather fun approaches, so does the risk of dehydration and heatstroke. And although it’s American Stroke Awareness Month, who’s to say that heatstroke can’t be included in that? Summer Health: 3 Tips to Avoid Heatstroke and Dehydration According to Healthline, seniors are at a higher risk of dehydration for a multitude of reasons. One of which is a lowered thirst response. https://lifestylesafter50.com/2022/05/11/summer-tips-avoid-dehydration/
We’ve finally made it to 2021! After a hellish year behind us, it feels as though we’re prepared to take on whatever we may face in this new year. The fresh start of New Year’s is often associated with a new and improved diet, exercise regimen and maybe even a new hobby to occupy our extra time. While more leafy greens and painting are certainly great resolutions to implement and keep, integrating more philanthropy into your life may be the change you need.
And just like that, 2021 is nearly over. Some of us may be rejoicing, and others may just be in awe that another year has flown by. However, December is one of my favorite months regardless of its year-ending significance.
Each year when March rolls around, it marks the official start of spring about midway through the month. This year may feel a bit different than last given the pandemic that continues to stretch forward and all of the changes we’ve experienced with its presence. What better way to ward off the COVID and winter blues than by enjoying the fresh air of the season?

As more people get the COVID-19 vaccine, there’s hope for an end to the pandemic that has put a halt on travel plans around the world for the last year-plus. However, many seniors must cancel their yearly summer travel plans once again to keep themselves safe as the pandemic continues. If you’re itching to get out there and explore this summer but find yourself stuck at home, visit some of the amazing places in our virtual summer travel guide for 2021 to quench your thirst for life.
With autumn well under way, October promises cooler temperatures for Floridians and the hope for less rain than September gave us. Not only does the weather begin to make its seasonal pivot, but this month means the start of the rich, cozy holiday season—starting with Halloween, or Día de Muertos for those practicing Mexican culture, moving to Thanksgiving and finally December’s family-oriented holiday celebrations.
November has always been a favorite month of mine. Growing up in the Midwest, it always meant that the weather was officially set for cozy holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and the new year. The cold November rain that Axl Rose so passionately described is in full affect, making it perfect weather to curl into a plush throw blanket and pick up that psycho-thriller novel you’ve been working on for, well, too long.
My most comforting memories involve family, specifically time spent with my grandparents. When I was younger, I would spend a weekend here and there at their house. My grandma would pick me up on a Friday from my parents’ house and we would go to our local Meijer. I would “help” her do the grocery shopping for the week.
Once September makes an appearance, it has a way of making us feel as though fall has arrived. The temperatures may still be balmy, but the promise of the coziest time of year can’t be beaten. And although most of us aren’t quite ready for pumpkin spice-drenched treats, the end of summer is joyous enough to celebrate.
