As if we didn't already know it, a lot of us are eating too much sugar. According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, Americans eat, on the average, about 20 teaspoons a day, with teens and men consuming the most. That adds up to an average daily calorie count of 335 for men, 230 for women, 362 for boys and 282 for girls.

One of the reasons I study and practice yoga is to maintain my balance during my life after 50. We do poses to improve our balance on two feet with poses such as "Warrior" and on one foot with poses such as "Tree." Being better balanced can help prevent falls as we age.

Lately I find myself wanting to rid myself of a lot of clothing in my closet. Maybe it's because it's a new year. Or maybe because by this time, I've finally embraced the whole quality over quantity thing. Besides, it is altogether true that there is truth to that 80/20 rule: You wear 20 percent of your clothing 80 percent of the time. So, who needs all those shirts/pants/dresses/shoes/boots/sandals/sneakers anyway?

More than 29,000 people attended the 2016 The New York Times Travel Show at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City last weekend, and I was one of them. With 545 exhibits, it was a captivating day.
