Keys to wellness

On C-Span, Washington Journal, Feb. 8, Libby Casey was interviewing Dr. Steven Woolf of Virginia Common Wealth and encouraging professionals to call on a special line to comment on Keys to Wellness.

I called in the following comment to C-Span:

I am an 89-year-old Minnesota health-care researcher and author. I’ve learned there are always better ways to do anything. Eliminate bad habits and develop new habits.

Crosslake Community Center has a Silver Sneakers program conducted by a qualified instructor. As many as 30 seniors are having fun exercising to music. Also available is a completely equipped exercise workout room.

The key to wellness is staying active and learning from others.
