Stephanie Raffelock from the Coffee Table Wisdom Podcast talks Positive Aging

March 1, 2020

Stephanie Raffelock is a journalist, a blogger and an aspiring novelist. In her Sixty and Me column, she explores aging dynamically, living fully and loving well. You can find her at http://StephanieRaffelock.com or Tweet her @Sraffelock.

 

All around us, older women flourish in industry, entertainment, and politics. Do they know something that we don’t, or are we all just trying to figure it out? For so many of us, our hearts and minds still feel that we are twenty-something young women who can take on the world. But in our bodies, the flexibility and strength that were once taken for granted are far from how we remember them. Every day we have to rise above the creaky joints and achy knees to earn the opportunity of moving through the world with a modicum of grace. Yet we do rise, because it’s a privilege to grow old, and every single day is a gift. Peter Pan’s mantra was “never grow up”; our collective mantra should be “never stop growing.” This collection of user-friendly stories, essays, and philosophies invites readers to celebrate whatever age they are with a sense of joy and purpose and with a spirit of gratitude.

Mastering Diabetes with Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro

Mastering Diabetes with Cyrus Khambatta and Robby Barbaro

February 15, 2020

Robby Barbaro and Cyrus Kambatta present A groundbreaking method to master all types of diabetes by reversing insulin resistance. 

 

Cyrus-Robby-Square-removebg-preview.png

Current medical wisdom advises that anyone suffering from diabetes or prediabetes should eat a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet. But in this revolutionary book, Cyrus Khambatta, Ph.D., and Robby Barbaro, MPH, rely on a century of research to show that advice is misguided. While it may improve short-term blood glucose control, such a diet also increases the long-term risk for chronic diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chronic kidney disease, and fatty liver disease.

The revolutionary solution is to eat a low-fat plant-based whole-food diet, the most powerful way to reverse insulin resistance in all types of diabetes: type 1, type 1.5, type 2, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes.

As the creators of the extraordinary and effective Mastering Diabetes Method, Khambatta and Barbaro lay out a step-by-step plan proven to reverse insulin resistance-the root cause of blood glucose variability- while improving overall health and maximizing life expectancy. Armed with more than 800 scientific references and drawing on more than 36 years of personal experience living with type 1 diabetes themselves, the authors show how to eat large quantities of carbohydrate-rich whole foods like bananas, potatoes, and quinoa while decreasing blood glucose, oral medication, and insulin requirements. They also provide life-changing advice on intermittent fasting and daily exercise and offer tips on eating in tricky situations, such as restaurant meals and family dinners. Perhaps best of all: On the Mastering Diabetes Method, you will never go hungry.

With more than 30 delicious, filling, and nutrient-dense recipes and backed by cutting-edge nutritional science, Mastering Diabetes will help you maximize your insulin sensitivity, attain your ideal body weight, improve your digestive health, gain energy, live an active life, and feel the best you've felt in years.

 

 

The Environmental Learning Center with Sara Piotter and David Yakir

The Environmental Learning Center with Sara Piotter and David Yakir

February 7, 2020

The Environmental Learning Center was founded in 1988 by a group of environmentally conscious pioneers from the Pelican Island Audubon Society, who lived in our community and cherished the nature that thrives in the Indian River Lagoon. Through the support of our community, donors, members, board, staff and volunteers we are able to build our educational nature learning and stewardship programs and evolve our mission to bring nature to all including those with limited means and access to nature. They had a mission to preserve a beautiful, unspoiled 64-acre Indian River Lagoon island and create a place to lead educational programs and EcoAdventures which teach our visitors about the rich biodiversity of our Indian River Lagoon and the importance of its heritage, preservation and continued legacy in our community and in our world.Sara’s relationship with the ELC goes back almost a decade. From 2006-2008 Sara helped teach our school programs as a part-time naturalist. In the spring of 2008 she left the ELC to work as a field biologist. She’s worked for The Nature Conservancy, The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, and the United States Geological Survey on research projects related to restoration ecology, water quality, and foraging and reproduction studies of passerines and waterbirds. Sara grew up exploring green spaces around Indian River County, as she was raised right here in Vero Beach. Although Sara connected with the natural world from a very early age, her passion for conservation and natural resource management was ignited during her studies at the University of Florida. In 2004, she earned her B.S. degree in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from UF. Additionally, Sara’s received training from the National Geographic Society in Watershed Education. Sara originally joined the education team as a full-time Naturalist. She’s thrilled to expand her relationship with the communities ELC serves and strives to promote a life-long, positive, mutually-rewarding relationship with nature. In her free time she enjoys all things nature, cooking, traveling, live music, crafting natural products, aromatherapy, and spending time with her family.

Heather Kramer has been using the out-of-doors as a classroom and a place of inspiration for over ten years, believing there is a firm connection between science and art. Finding relevance in the patterns and cycles that nature presents, she emphasizes these foundations through hands-on, art-based learning opportunities both for herself and students of all ages. She works to create educational pieces that connect the communities to their local ecosystems.

Marc Miller Chat’s about his book “Repurpose Your Career - A practical Guide for Baby Boomers

Marc Miller Chat’s about his book “Repurpose Your Career - A practical Guide for Baby Boomers

October 16, 2019

If Marc Miller could have seen the future when he wrote his first book: Repurpose Your Career, A Practical Guide for Baby Boomers, he might have called it Life As You Know It Is About to Change…A Lot.
Since the 2008 economic downtown left many Baby Boomers unable to retire, Marc decided to use his own experiences to help others pivot to a career that would fulfill them for the next 20 years. In his second book, *Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for the Second Half of Life* he addressed the fact that the people seeking him out weren’t all Baby Boomers. Many in Generation X were also either dissatisfied with their careers or were being displaced by ongoing technological and social disruption.
*Repurpose Your Career third edition* responds to another huge shift in work: In this age of disruption, digitization, and the gig economy, people need a new mindset and strategies to become continual learners, create their own flexible careers, and cope with ageism.
This book helps them do it. Miller’s Career Pivot.com has been listed as a top career site by organizations including Forbes and Career Sherpa, and his strategies for a career transition have been featured on Mashable, Life Hacker, Money, Flexjobs and Sixty & Me. His second book was listed as one of the best career books of all time by Book Authority.
A “recovering engineer,” who spent years working at IBM, Miller’s own career journey started when his bicycle collided with a car, nearly ending his life. The experience changed his perspective on what he was doing with his time and launched him on a search for career fulfillment, leading him to jobs including teaching in the inner city, fundraising for a non-profit, and working for startups. He decided to parlay his experiences—and his engineer’s expertise at breaking big tasks into manageable steps—into helping others find long-lasting career fulfillment.
Today, though unemployment is at record lows for all age groups, employee satisfaction numbers have remained low. Everyone wants a job that’s meaningful and fulfilling to them as individuals, but few know how to evaluate an opportunity for those criteria. Instead, they focus on things like money and location, not realizing that more impactful factors to their happiness might include how much time they interact with others, whether the role requires multitasking or single focus, and what level of emotional support they need.
Complicating matters is the fact that entire industries can virtually disappear overnight and that many people will wind up doing a series of jobs and side gigs rather than having one long-term role with a single employer. Every worker—regardless of age—needs to avail themselves of every opportunity to learn and grow rather than expecting someone to train them. And they to look not for a role to fill but a problem to solve.
Written with professional writer Susan Lahey, Repurpose Your Career, the third edition is not only an easy read but packed with practical information and specific action steps. It’s the guidebook people in their 40 and beyond need to carry them into the next phase of life.

That’s it for us. Stay tuned for the all-new Yak About Today when season 6 begins.
