    There are many research projects that have shown the benefits of exercise for people getting older who want to keep their health. It seems it's not just physical fitness that is improved but also mental health - intellectual and mood-oriented.

    For those who like me can't get to a gym and who find running or jogging uncongenial, there is always dancing:

    For those who are interested in health and well-being, one annoying thing is the way that 'experts' change their mind.
    For years they've been saying salt is bad for you & take care - more recently, they've stressed the importance of getting enough salt.

    Here's an interesting article on the subject.

    Everybody learns what suits their constitution best, so this may not work for you, dear reader.

    I suffer from indigestion quite a bit, but I find the following spices - paprika, ground cumin, and ginger - seem to ward off dyspepsia and give me a good night's sleep.
