Are you worried that Thanksgiving marks the start of an unhealthy month (or two)? Are you determined to make it different this year? We've got some tips. While you might have heard some of these before, a reminder can only serve to help, don't you think?  Sometimes it takes a while before it actually clicks.

Apologies to those of you who like to maintain your childlike naiveté: By now, life has granted us the unique knowledge to know that certain things like Santa Claus, the tooth fairy and magical crystal balls don't exist. Still, if someone told you that if you ate a certain way in midlife, you would be less likely to be without major limitations in both physical and mental health in your old age, what would you do?

by Maggie Borger My COPD diagnosis can only be described as shocking. When I first got sick in December 2004, I thought I just had the flu. But my breathing difficulties worsened until I was diagnosed six months later with emphysema, a form of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease).

Just recently, my husband gave some advice to his 83-year-old mother, who has been growing increasingly distressed over her mental acuity (or loss thereof). She is frequently forgetting things (like where she put her keys) as well as losing the ability to recall words mid-sentence. "Play some games," he told her. "Crossword puzzles, word jumbles … stuff like that. Find something you like and spend a half-hour each morning. Make it like your homework."
