Salud! Drink to Your Health

Salud! Drink to Your Health

The Ancient Mariner may have bemoaned his thirst (”Water, water everywhere, nor any drop to drink”) but we live in an age and area that allows us access to clean water. Yet the fact is that plenty of us take in too little water to keep our minds and bodies going full-tilt. I promise this […]

There’s plenty of notice that the holiday season is approaching. Stores smell like cinnamon, carols fill radio playlists, invitations arrive, and, boom, we’re up to our ears in tinsel, cranberries, and nog! Yet despite the multiple warning signs, December still seems to arrive before I’m ready. I need a little more time to organize and […]

Cold Weather Skin Care   When the air turns frosty and the indoor heat turns on, skin reacts in a negative way. We may become quite itchy or develop flaky patches. However, it’s not just a matter of discomfort or unsightliness. Cold weather changes may be more than skin-deep — vulnerable skin can’t act as […]

I am at my happiest when the temperature is 80 degrees or higher, but as that ship has sailed for 2017, I’m thinking about a new approach to November. I guess I might as well join in the pumpkin buzz and embrace the frostiness as everyone else does. Do you have any advice to share […]

Perhaps you followed the great America’s Cup races in 2013, in which Team USA overcame a massive deficit in points to snatch victory from Team New Zealand. I did as well, but if Team USA captain Jimmy Spithill sat next to me in a launch, I wouldn’t have recognized him, as speed racing on open […]

Take Responsibility for Our Waters

Take Responsibility for Our Waters

As inhabitants of a planet that’s more than 70 percent water, it’s easy to take water for granted. If you do treat our waters carelessly, that’s a choice. However, the shore and sea creatures, aquatic plants, and coastlines don’t have any say in how they are handled. Treat them with disrespect and they’ll die off […]

When we first started this magazine, know-it-alls told us that we’d never survive unless we forgot about boaters and focused exclusively on boats. We didn’t follow that advice — we were certain that having fun on the water didn’t depend on the type or size of a vessel. No one laughs more on a cabin […]

Did you just stifle a yawn? Have you been struggling to stay awake all week and complete your work? You may be suffering from social jet lag, a superficial-sounding occurrence that actually is a gateway for poor health. “Social jet lag is the phenomenon of staying up later and sleeping in later on the weekends, […]

I really didn’t want to write this letter. My fingers simply refused to embrace the month when autumn begins. Nope, I just couldn’t write about September. Having left my toddler days long ago, I soon realized that throwing a tantrum wouldn’t actually prevent the currents from floating the calendar forward. Maybe I’d just start by […]

  We get wet to clean up or cool off, but taking a plunge can transform us both mentally and physically. I’m not talking about some elaborate or exotic hydropathy for our health — everyday swimming is a powerful and positive change agent. Kaitie Brown, aquatics director at the Suffolk Y JCC, praises swimming because […]
