by Joe Lawrence November 16th, 2018 | Aging Well, Health Observance
Imagine hearing that you have Alzheimer's. The fear of losing memories, the fear of forgetting those around you, and the fear of losing the ability to do everyday things you have come to enjoy. There are a few things that can be done to prolong these precious moments.

The one thing that people fear losing the most (after a love one, of course) is the family photos. This is because they are the precious memories of children eating birthday cake or wedding photos or even that loved one whom meant the world to you. If you think about what is

Breast Cancer Awareness: A Man’s Perspective

by Joe Lawrence October 5th, 2018 | Health Observance, Women's Health
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and an important reminder for all woman, but this article is aimed towards men. Bringing to light the merits of self examinations and prevention is paramount; however, another aspect of this month that amazes me are the heroes and their courage in the battle against a fierce enemy.

Remember how falling for someone changes everything? Although seemingly cliche, it's a fact that while falling love, colors seem brighter, life seems easier, and food tastes better (or one doesn't need food at all).

Building Meaningful Relationships

by Lori Sciame June 15th, 2018 | Health Observance
My relationship post this week is in honor of National Men's Health Month. This is because building meaningful relationships with peers has a direct correspondence with a man's mental health.  In essence, although many men tend to not like talking about emotions, they still benefit from the company of male friends.  In tough times, male friends may not discuss issues non stop like the majority of females do, but they still offer support and reassurance; therefore, men need to be cognizant of the fact that having male friends can be key to a happy and healthy life.
