Exercises For Longer Life

It's common wisdom that regular exercise is good for our health, but what constitutes "regular?" And what kind of exercise is most beneficial? Experts often recommend at least 150 minutes of moderately intense activity each week, which they also say is best broken up into shorter sessions you can do daily. Exercising for just 20 minutes per day, can help improve your physical and mental health as well as help you live longer. Recent studies, however, indicate that longevity is even more closely linked to higher-intensity workouts and between 150-270 minutes per week, which translates to 20-40 minutes per day. There is also evidence that team sports are even better than solo activities.

But it's crucial to not turn potential roadblocks into a reason not to exercise at all—even if you don't have a gym membership or you don't like team sports, there are plenty of ways to work out at home that you'll enjoy enough to keep up with. Here are a few ideas to get your body moving daily:

  • Walk: A ten-minute brisk walk is a great way to increase your heart rate, and it's short enough that you'll probably be able to squeeze in a walk on most days.
  • Try a HIIT routine: High-intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions are designed to be short (typically under 20 minutes) and, as the name suggests, intense. They're an efficient way to get your heart rate up quickly while building strength and flexibility.
  • Use a standing desk: Shift from sitting to standing throughout the workday with an adjustable desk and, for an added bonus, put a small treadmill under the desk so you can walk while you work.

I'ts important to remember that doing something is always better than doing nothing, so even if you aren't up for a 20-minute HIIT routine every day that doesn't mean you should throw in the towel. There's ample evidence that even a little bit of exercising on a regular basis can increase longevity. And if you don't have on already, consider getting a steps tracker. You might be surprised how much activity you do already, like mowing the lawn, vacuuming the house, shopping for groceries, and walking from meeting to meeting. Seeing the numbers go up is a great motivator.

Do You Need a Money Coach?

When it comes to money, most people can benefit greatly from a little bit of guidance. You probably know what a financial advisor or financial planner does. But there’s another professional you may want to add to your finance team: a money coach.

Whereas financial advisors help clients manage and invest their money wisely, money coaches look at a client’s overall financial situation and help set financial goals—like creating a family budget, figuring out a debt payment schedule, or building a nest egg.

Unlike financial advisors, financial coaches don’t need any official certification—many are social media influencers. Still, they can be helpful for people who want to have a better understanding of personal finance but don’t necessarily learn best by reading. Money coaches can turn the theoretical into practical advice focused on your specific situation. A money coach may be a good option for you if:

  • Thinking about money overwhelms you or gives you anxiety.
  • You’re going through a finance-changing life event.
  • You’re worried you won’t achieve goals (like buying a house).

Find out the value of your home by answering a few simple questions. By providing your address and home description, the system will produce a complete market analysis through a search for similar homes sold and listed in your area.

Choosing Pet Insurance

As the cost of healthcare for pets continues to go up, having pet insurance might seem more necessity than luxury. Choosing the right pet insurance can be tricky, though, given the usual insurance fine print. Here are three of the main things to keep in mind when shopping around:

  • Pet insurance typically doesnotcover preventative medicine. It’s designed to help offset the costs of treating a serious injury and/or illness, not your pet’s annual wellness exams. Some plans do cover routine care, but they’re more expensive.
  • Pet insurance doesnotcover pre-existing conditions. You can still get insurance for a pet with a pre-existing condition, it will just be stipulated in your policy that it isn’t covered. Insurance companies get records from your vet to check on this.
  • Pet insurance is a reimbursement system. You’ll need to pay the full veterinary bill at the time of service and get reimbursed from the insurance company based on your plan.

Ask your vet’s office for insurance recommendations. They don’t work directly with pet insurance providers, but they’ve no doubt heard positive (and negative) reviews from other customers about different providers.

How to Enjoy Your Own Company

Although the idea of “me time” has become more popular, there are people who equate being alone with loneliness—and no one wants that. Solitude can seem hard to find if you live in a busy city or a crowded house, but intentionally carving out time for yourself can have positive mental and physical health benefits. If, that is, you embrace being alone.

Experts say that if being alone is your choice, you’re much more likely to enjoy the solitude and less likely to succumb to loneliness. But this doesn’t mean you have to become a hermit to be happy alone. It means you’re able to find happiness in solo pursuits of your choosing— exercising, birdwatching, creating art, or even working.

If you struggle to do something you love when you’re alone, you may want to try an activity that boosts endorphin levels. After all, if you’re getting a happiness high from the activity, you’re more apt to do it again. Physical activity like gardening or beachcombing can work here (you don’t have to go to the gym to be physical), but you can also do volunteer work. Studies show volunteering makes people feel more fulfilled, and solo volunteer work may even be something you can do from home—think preparing meals for houseless people or making hats for preemie babies.

The Japanese practice of “forest bathing” is a poetic term for something research has shown time and again: Spending time in nature is very good for us. Taking a solo hike in the woods is great, but movement isn’t necessary. You could knit in the park on your lunch break or watch flickers dig for ants in the backyard. It can also be a meditative experience, immersing yourself in the natural environment to allow you to take it in with all of your senses.

Treat yourself to something special that you usually need company to justify, like dinner at a fancy restaurant or a ticket to the opera. And this doesn’t need to be expensive or even outside the home. You could cook a favorite meal, for instance, served on your good dishes. You don’t have to skimp on things you’d enjoy just because you’re flying solo.

Studies have shown your income and wealth are directly related to the size and depth of your vocabulary. Here is this month's word.

Meaning: beginning, start

Q: What key steps should I take to make my home show like a model?

Look at your home through a potential buyer’s eyes. Here are three essential steps:

  1. Clean and repair.Your buyer’s first impression is from the street. Clean up the yard, the landscaping and check your exterior paint job. On the inside, shampoo the carpets, scrub the floors and clear off all the counters. Remove old wallpaper and paint the walls a neutral color. Fix things that need fixing, like squeaky doors, broken tiles etc.
  2. De-Clutter.Get rid of all that “stuff” you’ve accumulated in the garage, the backyard and the basement. And don’t forget the closets!
  3. “Stage” it to look like a model home.Put away your personal items and remove large pieces of furniture. Ask your REALTOR®for ways to “dress up” your home (candles, new linens etc.) to maximize your selling potential.
