Lori Brothers: Be alert to conserve, recover energy
You can conserve and recover your energy by looking at the different facets that produce or drain your body’s energy sources. For example, if you’re feeling tired, eat more fish, just for the halibut!
Lori Brothers: It’s time to say goodbye to summer
The summer holidays of Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day areover. I’m so sorry to have to deliver the sad news. I decided to track down some interesting facts about summer, even though it’s behind us, to cheer us all up.
Lori Brothers: Choose to embrace ‘mindful living’
A recent “graduate” of the six week Spectrum Program said what she values most about healthy choice making is “mindful living.” She reviewed how differently she is living now that she has more awareness about how she is in relationship to eating, thinking and how she decides to exercise and take care of herself.

Lori Brothers: Raise your standards for better health
Setting a standard for yourself equals establishing a good habit. Whenever you don’t make a habit that creates a high standard, the results can lead to decline or decay.

If you don’t brush your hair, you may end up with birds nesting in it.
Lori Brothers: Make sure your tank is properly filled before starting your exercise routine
I’d like to give a big “shout out” to Lugene Hudson, who is working toward getting back up to speed with her interest in running. We did have a great event this year, and I like to make sure it is clear to all the walkers that you, too, are invited to participate in our annual event. A great side note — I had a participant who won a medal in her age group. She wasn’t sure if she should come out, since she had never walked a 5K. She surprised herself. Congratulations, Amy!
Lori Brothers: Laughter is the best medicine after all
Last week, I was moved to tears by a story about a man and his arthritic dog, Schoep. John Unger and his dog Schoep used to float in Lake Superior at least 10 minutes each day, if the water temperature permitted, as a form of comfort and therapy for the aging dog.
