Senior's mental and physical health
Since I have met and faced middle age, I have come to terms with a lot of issues.

I realize the importance of meditation, relaxation, socialization, getting Vitamin D (10 - 15 minutes outdoors per day), good nutrition, sleep hygiene, exercising both my body and my mind, and balancing mind, body & spirit.
