Physicians recommend exercise to prevent daily stress and to improve mind thought. Integrative medicine includes healing approaches that treat the whole person: mind, body and spirit. 

Alcohol use can lead to abuse, and continued use can lead to addiction. Helping a friend address an alcohol problem early can help keep it from getting out of control and doing serious harm. If you think your friend needs help, take the first step and say something.

Alcohol support groups are a safe place for people to express fears. The first step is to admit we are powerless over the past and hand things over to God. He is able to rebuild our life and restore us to wholeness.  

The Spiritual well-being of believers is found with the good news of God's forgiveness. We are called to live a joyful life, always prayful and seeking God's will. The Holy Bible reminds us of the gift of the Holy Spirit, God's continual helping presence in our life.

If someone you know wanders away from the truth and is brought back, you can be sure that whoever witnesses to the lost person will help save that person from hardship and help bring about his or her forgiveness.

When should older drivers give up the wheel? We need to be honest with ourselves no matter how much it may hurt. If our sight is failing and our reflexes are slowing, we should give up driving. One could start the discussion, with "Mom or Dad, stop driving. That's the third mailbox I've had to replace. I'll drive," this is an upfront way to help them face reality.

We have many special services for seniors living alone, including Meals on Wheels. Meal deliveries are brought to the home and are offered by a variety of government and private agencies.

Life after driving can be rewarding and enjoyable. Seniors need inexpensive and convenient services so they, too, can enjoy normal lives. For more information go to http://www.flhsmv.org/FloridaGrandDriver/

 

Safety Measures

1. Always wear your seat belts.

2. Avoid using cell phones and texting while driving on the road.

3. Maintain your vehicle properly.

4. Always notice the speed limits. Drive slower at night and on roads that are wet.

5. Never allow children under the age of 12 to sit in the front seat in full range of an air bag. Air bags are lifesavers but can also be deadly.

7. Drive defensively leaving a space between you and other cars.

8. Beware of crossing traffic or driving in someone's blind spot.

9. Be sure the directions to mapped out destinations are accurate before you leave your home.
