Sleep, sleep…where forth art thou? Revised

But for others, it is a totally different situation when you have counted 317 sheep and are awake to notice several hundred more are waiting to leap over the fence. This webinar comes packed with tips to improve the chances of getting to sleep and sleeping through the night.
Do you focus on everything and everyone else but you? Let 2020 be your year for self-care. Self-care is deliberate and self-initiated. Don’t settle for merely giving yourself whatever time is left over after helping and caring for others. You deserve more than that! Join us for this webinar where we will look at the importance of self-care and how to pamper yourself for a change.
Loving Our Aging Feet Part I: Understanding Changes & Treatments
Tuesday, March 24, 2020 10:30am-11:00am https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1948772615193889025
Foot pain affects 1 in 4 adults after age 45, and it's at least somewhat disabling in two-thirds of those cases. Even worse, foot pain in older adults is associated with a 62 % increased risk of recurrent falls. As feet get older they lose some of their strength and springiness due to changes in the skin and joints. Feet tend to spread and lose the fatty pads that cushion them. This does not mean that feet should necessarily become painful as they get older. However, it does mean that they are not able to sustain the same levels of activity that they could when you were younger. Make foot health a priority, especially as you get older.
