I am bummed to say the least. Usually the retirement community has a great interest in learning about hypertension and diabetes! Maybe that interest is not the same on the weekends. Maybe they are busy and will stop by in the next hour. Maybe the folks here are super healthy octogenarians and don’t need to learn anything else about improving their health. Maybe the residents just didn’t get the memo, or maybe, there just isn’t as much interest in the self management and prevention of the most common diseases in the US today, (sigh).
Enough moping! I will not be deterred! I now have the motivation I need to begin the blog that has been swirling around in my head for the past year!
I titled this blog, “Did you know?” because when my 5 and 7 year old daughters want to share something they just learned, they always began the conversation with this phrase. I actually refer to their practice as “dropping knowledge” because my girls share what they have learned with such authority, I picture them dropping the mic at the end of their session! So, whenever I get some great health information that catches my attention and can influence our lifestyle choices for the better, I will post a “Did you know?” update! Please read and share this information because knowledge is power!
