Everywhere, March 2015—We don’t always do this, but last week we received a blanket e-mail purportedly written by a woman from Cleveland, Ohio, a long-time newspaper columnist for that city’s Plain Dealer. Judy claims to be 90 years old. “To celebrate growing older,” she said, “I once wrote several lessons that life taught me. It is the most requested column I’ve ever written.”

We don’t have space for all 42 of her lessons, but here are a few we thought you’d enjoy. (Even if this is another social networking ruse, these musings are still nice to contemplate…)

Dallas, Texas, February 2015—Omni Hotels & Resorts recently conducted a travel wellness survey of business and leisure travelers nationwide, determining that, when it comes to dining and drinking habits, travelers’ waistbands often expand along with their frequent flyer miles.

According to the results, an overwhelming number of respondents (seven in 10) indicate they routinely gain weight while traveling, despite extra efforts to maintain healthy dietary habits on the road. More than one-third (36%) of business travelers pack snacks from home in an attempt to eat nutritiously while traveling, and almost two-thirds (62%) of travelers also drink more water during their trips. However, these efforts may be offset by other less-diligent routines. For example, 52% of all travelers (52%) admitted to drinking more frequently while traveling. Here are some of the details:

Packing More Than Luggage: Despite more than four in 10 (44%) of all travelers claiming to have the same eating practices while away as at home, 70% of people traveling are packing on the pounds. People traveling for business are the most likely to overeat (38%).
