The holiday season is upon us and there's a lot to do. Sometimes there's too much to do and cards get done at the last minute, gifts wrapped at midnight (or minutes before they're to be opened), and before you know it, the holidays are gone.
My family and I went down to the Outer Banks in North Carolina for our family vacation, but there was a twist. Our teenage son invited his friend and our daughter invited a friend along as well. Four kids and two adults for a week at the beach. You might think that it was a crazy idea, but all turned out well.
When dealing with health issues, it’s not always easy to have a plan to deal with injury or sickness. What I’ve learned over time is to follow the Golden mean philosophy. Aristotle might have lived a long time ago, but I think he hit the nail on the head. Simply put, the Golden mean, is to live a tempered life and not one to extremes. And when I apply this philosophy toward my health, I need to remember to have balance in my life: What I eat, drink and when to (and not to) exercise.
