Let’s Talk Generations
Wednesday, 25 January 2017 17:13
Washington, DC, January 2017—You know what we’re talking about: how the generations, dating from the so-called “Silent Generation” up through the notorious Boomers, to Generation X, the Millennials, and now Generation Z, all differ in their desires, expectations and mode of living.

As it turns out that may not be the case—either that, or since we’ve now almost come full circle (tack on the “Greatest” Generation, those wonderful people who fought in most all our wars from WWI through Vietnam, and we have,) old habits are becoming new again.

Slowing Things Down with Mediterranean-Style Diets
Wednesday, 25 January 2017 17:07
Everywhere, USA, January 2017—Modifiable factors related to healthy aging have been a critical area of research for years, primarily because seniors today comprise the fastest growing age demographic in the United States.

In particular, a new study published by the American Academy of Neurology joins other studies reporting potential beneficial changes in brain activity related to consuming a Mediterranean-style diet. The Med diet, so-called because of where it came from (countries more or less bordering the Mediterranean Sea) , is high in fruits, vegetables, legumes, and plant-based oils, moderate in amounts of fish, low to moderate amounts of wine and dairy, and low in amounts of poultry and meat.

Stressed Millennials Tough it Out
Wednesday, 28 October 2015 19:41
Charlotte, North Carolina, October 2015—A new national poll released recently finds that while 84 percent of millennials are confident in managing their finances, 41 percent are “chronically stressed” about money. Furthermore, money stress tends to permeate all areas of their lives, affecting their emotional well-being, personal relationships, leisure activities, work performance, and overall physical health.

Only one-third (34 percent) of millennials feel “content” about their finances, while many are “anxious” (27 percent) and “overwhelmed” (22 percent). Still, despite these negative emotions, millennials haven’t necessarily lost confidence in their ability to manage money and say they feel confident because they know how to budget and manage their finances—ensuring good spending habits and building on their savings.

Keeping Boomers on Straight and Narrow
Tuesday, 22 December 2015 16:49
Boca Raton, Florida, December 2015—Baby boomers believe in the value of prevention, but many of America’s most influential generation are taking a reactive, and sometimes risky, approach when it comes to managing their health, as revealed by the first MDVIP Boomer Health Survey taken recently. (NOTE: We could not find identification of the acronym. Ed.)

The national survey of 1,049 baby boomers, conducted by the independent market research firm Ipsos Public Affairs on behalf of MDVIP, shows that while 94 percent of boomers believe preventive care is an important part of staying healthy, three of four say they should be doing more to better manage their health (74 percent). Half of boomers (46 percent) say they don’t exercise regularly, and more than a third say they don’t eat healthy (35 percent) or get sufficient sleep (37 percent, 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night).
