Savvy Seniors: May is Older Americans Month

Fifty years ago, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Older Americans Act into law in July 1965. Since that time, the Act has provided a nationwide aging services network and funding that helps older adults live with dignity in the communities of their choice for as long as possible.  Canton Public Library offers a variety of services to residents over the age of  62 such as  Books by Mail,  a Large Print Collection, large screen computer monitors with user friendly keyboards and mouses, Low Vision Magnifiers, and an Optelic Reader. The Canton Seniors Book Discussion group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from 2:00-3:00pm.

Child Development Lecture: Exercise, Nutrition and Brain Development

Join us on Saturday, May 30, from 1:00-3:00PM, as Banyan Montessori Academy will present Dr. Sean Gregory from Canton Center Chiropractic Clinic to talk with parents about helping their children grow into their full potential.

If nutrition provides the building blocks of the body genes, then exercise provides the blue prints. The consumption of optimal levels of micro-nutrients (minerals, vitamins and plant chemicals) is necessary for both children and adults who desire to operate at their full capacity. This coupled with a proper macro-nutrient (carbs, protein, and fats) is what paves the way to individual optimization. In addition to proper nutrition, exercise grows and reinforces the brain at the same time as it grows and reinforces the body.  Movement tells our bodies how to lay down new bone when we grow, helps aid our digestion through core activity and breathing, and activates and balances our hormones.
Dr. Gregory will be discussing the building blocks of nutrition to grow a healthy, active brain as well as how exercise is integral to fully realizing our potentials.

Savvy Seniors: April, 2015

Using e-readers, tablets in the evening could harm sleep quality according to a recent study from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The convenience of reading a light weight, lit reader in bed may not outweigh the disruption of sleep patterns. The report recommended turning e-readers off at least two hours before bedtime.
