written by Marsha Seidelman, M.D.
on Sunday, 27th October, 2019

There are always things that need to be done.  But, sometimes peace and quiet in nature is just what the doctor ordered.   Our [LINK: /article/-is-the-key-to-healthy-aging/#sthash.FJGY8uoq.dpbs] last exercise post was about the benefits of exercise - 150 minutes of mild to moderate exercise each week.  Prior posts touted the importance of walking for [LINK: /article/exercises-for-osteopenia-and-osteoporosis-prevention--part-3/#sthash.iAlESQOj.dpbs] osteoporosis ...
