If you read my last post, Closet Cleaning 101, then chances are—maybe?—you've attacked your closet and gotten rid of what you don't need or no longer wear. I have semi-attacked mine, stopping short when the difficulty of parting with certain so-called "important" items became too distressing.

Does it seem like everyone you know is doing yoga? Well, not everyone, but the numbers are rapidly rising—and with good reason.Yoga is a form of exercise that nearly anyone can do, with very little equipment, and it improves strength, balance, flexibility and overall physical and mental well-being.

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.
