This portal is a place to find informational research and tips on health, exercise, fitness, hiking, jogging, and other health tips to keep you young and healthy.
As I travel and talk to people everyday, they all echo one key thing. To stay young, we need to continue to be active. Most of us choose to stay working and engaged. Some of us choose to travel and see the world. Others help the people around them, such as family, their children, grandchildren. Others volunteer for a worthy cause and pay back to the community.
But whatever you choose, the key word is… Be Active… Be engaged
We are committed to the pursuit of being young and healthy as we grow older. My generation believes in being active and working as long as we are able to. I hear stories of people working and being active well beyond their nineties. We believe in the people and the communities we serve. We aim to deliver the highest standards of integrity, fair-dealing and quality in the services we provide.

- Fitness Files: Diary notes on a troublesome heel – ….This time, the heel pain jabbed, stabbed, persisted. In April, I resolved to go on a course of Ibuprofen. Started with two pills at breakfast, but forgot follow-up doses. Heel pain lingered….
- A reminder: Staying safe on the hike-and-bike trail – In Austin, more than 100 miles of trails, including the 10 most-loved miles that encircle Lady Bird Lake, twist through the city. In recent years, those trails have grown increasingly congested. Runners and cyclists, tourists and nature walkers, sometimes two or three abreast, share a trail also populated by strollers, dogs, a serenading musician or two and the occasional squirrel that darts across the path.
- Could walking barefoot on grass improve your health? Some research suggests it can. It is not a secret that spending time in nature is good for you. For years, researchers have been detailing how people who live near green spaces — parks, greenbelts, tree-lined streets, rural landscapes — have better physical and mental health, and practices such as Japanese forest bathing and Nordic hygge, which has a strong outdoorsy component, are being embraced here in the United States. Could grounding be next?
Let me count the ways that hiking (and other forms of exercise) help you physically and mentally ensuring it:
- Improves your overall health
- Lifts your mood
- Helps control diseases such as diabetes & cardiovascular disease
- Helps you sleep better
- Increases energy level
- Burns calories and helps you lose weight
- Lowers risk of getting other diseases
