One brisk walk a day is enough to cut the risk of early death by as much as 15 per cent, according to Public Health England. I read this in my nightly download of stories of centenarians. Fifteen percent! That’s a pretty good payoff for one brisk walk a day, don’t you think?
‘Tis the season for get-togethers, gift exchanges and goodwill.

After losing my husband and globe-trotting partner of 24 years to cancer, I knew I would travel again someday. At nearly 60, I was still a relatively young woman, and there was a lot of world left to see. But my trips to so-called ‘romantic’ destinations were history as far as I was concerned.

Are we the generation which had it all?
The bra-burning brigade of the 1960s led us to believe we could have everything we wanted – a fabulous job, a happy family, a beautiful home, leisure time by the bucket-load because of all the labour-saving gadgets, good health, cars, holidays – you name it, it was ours for the taking.
I saw this as a little blurb in an AARP article: “When you eat out, do you order lobster or chicken?” I stopped cold. I order the chicken, of course. And now I’m annoyed with myself.
