SEE US BEFORE GETTING BMW SERVICE ANYWHERE ELSE!

To Be or not to Be…Healthy!

Often times in fitness, we set out to embark on this grand journey of achievement that will one day have us proclaiming from the mountain tops, “I did it! I made it! I’ve arrived!!” The picture of this happy ending is crystal clear, yet the starting point is where we tend to have a more blurred vision of things. It is hard sometimes to accept our present circumstance and even harder to acknowledge that there is work to be done. It is in that moment though, that the decision must be made to take that all important first step in becoming our ultimate selves. It is not certain if Shakespeare was a Trainer as well as a world-class poet, but what is certain is that he understood the importance of self-awareness. As it pertains to fitness, understanding our true starting point involves consulting with someone that understands the body and can relate to what exercises are needed to address any areas of concern. A Certified Trainer can show you that it isn’t necessarily about where we are, but more importantly, what we need to do to get to where we’re going. Someone once said, “Once you make the decision to do something, the universe will move out of your way.” Well, that individual must not have ever felt the soreness of doing a leg day or had to endure the physical hardships of a three day total body regiment. While, these are some of the obstacles that will inevitably rear their ugly heads along the way on our fitness journeys, they can’t be seen as insurmountable walls that are impossible to climb. Rather, they are merely stepping stones on the way to greatness. Now, not unlike any other grueling task, it is better to go about the journey with a group of like-minded people. Friends or work out buddies that are just as committed to beating those hard days and overcoming those obstacles, are great resources to have. More importantly, actually working together side by side in a group setting, is the best way to stay motivated and on task to reaching that summit.

“To be or not to be…” We are all very familiar with the Shakespearean quote, but what exactly does it mean, and more importantly how does it relate to fitness? Well, what the famous line of prose can be broken down to is the simple yet arduous act of making a decision. In deciding to do something or become a particular version of ourselves, there are a few things that must be taken into consideration. We have to have a clear vision of who we are and where we are and accept that as our starting point, commit to overcoming any obstacles that may stand in the way of achieving our ultimate goal, and finally, believing that we can be exactly who we set out to be!

Clean, crisp, beautiful. Today’s world is filled with noise, blinking lights and distractions. Print advertising utilizes all that technology has to offer to deliver targeted messages that capture the imagination through traditional storytelling and the surrounding silence allows readers to stay engaged without moving on to the next blinking light. This makes them perfect for building brand and product awareness. Magazines also work to build trust; use them to achieve credibility with consumers. Magazine advertising can be used to lead customers to a more conversion-friendly platform like digital.

LEGALLY SPEAKING BY ALAN J. REINDFELD, ESQ

Think about Estate Planning for Your New Year’s Resolution The New Year is a chance to reflect on the past and to make changes to the future. What better way than preparing your family for the inevitable, “Old Age and Death.” These words are feared from among the strongest and or richest person to the poorest and or weakest individual. We all share this common fact, that one day we will age and no longer be here. With this said, why not put on the top of our New Year’s Resolution List, “Get a Will or Trust prepared and make the process easier on your family. What is a will? A will is a written document, signed and witnessed, which sets out instructions for the disposition of your estate only at the time of or after the event of your death. What is a trust? A trust is a set of instructions which come into effect as soon as the trust is created which means that it provides property management during your life and/ or after your death. My best comparison is a trust is almost like a company, one you manage while your alive, and if your become incapacitated or die, it can be managed by your successors according to your instructions.

Differences between a will and a trust Apart from the main difference that a will comes into effect only after death whereas a trust is in effect during lifetime and after death, there are many more things to think about when deciding between the two estate planning tools. Here is a list of some of the more significant differences which a trust attorney can explain in further detail: •

• •

A will and the property in the will is subject to the probate process; a trust and assets in the trust are not subject to the probate process. However, assets in both plans may be subject to federal estate tax. Because a trust does not go through the probate process it may remain a private affair; a will goes through probate and therefore it becomes accessible to the public. A will allows you to assign a guardian for your minor children; a trust allows you to control when and how your minor children, grandchildren and other dependents access your trust assets. Often, the costs to set up and manage a trust can be much higher than setting up a will. The assets in a will do not need to be managed; a trust can only plan for assets which have actively

been transferred into the trust, therefore the assets in a trust need to be actively managed. The actions of a trustee are not usually overseen by a court; the actions of an executor of a will are court supervised through the probate process. Because a will is only effective after death, it does not allow for instances where the person becomes incapacitated through injury or illness or old age; a trust provides a plan for the possibility of incapacity.

So, which is better for your family? Obviously both have their pros and their cons and if this breakdown of wills and trusts cannot help you decide which plan you should use, a qualified and knowledgeable trust attorney will be able to point you in the right direction and help you put together a comprehensive estate plan.

5 important benefits of family time

W

ith work, school, homework, after school activities, friends and more, there are countless activities that compete for time on the family calendar. Family time, however, can serve as an escape from the demands and deadlines of daily life, and is paramount in building strong relationships. Family time offers many benefits, including building confidence, creating a stronger emotional bond between family members, improving communication skills, better performance in school and reduced behavioral issues, as well as providing an opportunity to make memories built on fun, laughter and togetherness.

Family Bonding Spending time partaking in everyday family leisure activities has been associated with greater emotional bonding within families. Both “core” leisure activities, such as playing a board game, watching television, gardening or playing outdoors and “balance” activities, which require a greater investment of planning, time and money, such as a family vacation or trip to an amusement park or sporting event, can have a big impact on the overall health of a family, according to research published by the National Council on Family Relations. Simply making it a habit to display interest in the well-being of your family members can lead to a willingness to share problems and build mutual respect between parents and children.

Academic Performance

Risky Behavior

Children whose parents spend time with them and take an interest in their education tend to do better in school and complete higher levels of education than those whose parents spent their time at home pursuing their own hobbies, according to a study published on familyfacts.org. Providing essential guidance through studying and assisting with homework, as well as incorporating educa tional games, can provide children a positive influence, lead to emotional well-being and help them strive for higher levels of educational success as they grow.

On average, adolescents who communicate and spend more time with their families tend to exhibit lower levels of aggression and antisocial behavior than peers with less involved parents, according to familyfacts.org. A closer family relationship has also been linked to reductions in acts of violence, delinquent behavior, substance abuse and tobacco use. Communication and spending time together can help relieve feelings of anxiety or anger and reduce urges to participate in risky behaviors.

Communication Skills

One of the most important benefits of spending time together is also one of the simplest: creating memories that will last a lifetime. Whether it’s playing a game together, attending an event, going on vacation or just sitting in the living room or around the table talking and laughing, positive memories are beloved possessions that give family members a sense of belonging and can help reinforce the importance of family.

Children learn how to behave and communicate by watching their parents interact with each other and others. Family bonding time is a way to model expected behaviors, and spending time together as a family can help parents relate more to their children and open the lines of communication. Spending a few minutes together once everyone is home for the day, whether for dinner or a scheduled family “meeting,” can help families learn to listen to, trust and understand one another, and build appropriate behaviors.

Lipo Abdominoplasty for Body Sculpting Impaired intestinal transit, caused by compromised migrating motor complexes which is controlled by parasympathetic modulation, which is responsible for rest, digest, immune system and reproduction, is associated with an increase in microbial colonization (bacterial overgrowth) in the small intestine. A reduced number of giant migrating contractions in the colon has been reported in patients with slowtransit constipation and might contribute to symptoms in some patients with IBS and constipation. Alternatively, accelerated intestinal transit, characterized by an increased number of giant migrating contractions, is observed in some patients with diarrheal disorders such as diarrhea-predominant IBS. The frequency of regular migrating motor complexes is influenced by the frequency of food intake, quality of sleep, and stress. Acute stress is associated with increased parasympathetic output to the small and large intestine and reduced vagal output to the stomach. Even though they have not been studied outside the setting of bacterial overgrowth, these alterations in gut transit are likely to have a major impact on the composition and organizational structure of the gut microbiota in different regions of the GI tract.

So before solid evidence based treatment recommendations become available, what should we do to enhance our odd to benefit from theses ground breaking, game changing disease prevention/ treatment regarding the human microbiome? It all come down to what I have been proposing all along. Following the known beneficial factors by eating “clean” (plenty of vegetable and fruit, i.e. prebiotics), and exercising regularly to enhance the native gut microbiome. In addition, routine practicing of parasympathetic enhancing activities such as establishing a good sleeping hygiene, regular meditation and yoga practice, and occasional acupressure therapy. Also, following the medical guidelines regarding reduce excess antibiotics use. And as an additional safety measure; taking daily probiotics either through diet (my preferenceGreek yogurt, Kefir) or probiotics supplement. To the minimum, you gut will thank you for that by having regular bowel movement. As usual, please consult with your physician before you embark on those healthy gut microbiota quest.

Despite the mounting evidence suggests a deep connection between the gut microbiota and central nervous system, we still have yet to come up with clinical evidence based studies to determine how alterations in these interactions begin and how they are sustained over time. Controlled interventional studies are needed to test the effects of prebiotics, probiotics, antibiotics, dietary modifications, and possibly fecal microbial transplantation (yuk!) in patients with disorders in which altered gut microbiota–to–brain signaling has been implicated. There are small but consistent beneficial effects of probiotic intake have been reported in IBS but it failed to reveal major effects of the transient effects of the gut microbiota on human behavior.

ANS (Autonomic nervous system) which control sympathetic (fight or flight) versus parasympathetic (rest, digest, and immune system) plays an important role in mediating modulation of mucus secretion. ANS is likely to have important effects on the size and quality of the intestinal mucus layer, an important habitat for the biofilm, where most enteric microbiota reside. The ANS also affects epithelial mechanisms involved in activation of the immune system by the gut. This activation can occur directly through modulation of the response of the gut immune cells (white blood cells) to gut bacteria with antimicrobial peptides or indirectly by altering access of alumina bacteria to gut immune cells. Several preclinical studies have demonstrated that stressful stimuli can increase the permeability of the intestinal epithelium, facilitating translocation of gut organisms and inducing an immune response in the intestinal mucosa.

Keep Pets Safe, Healthy During the Holidays The holiday season is synonymous with family gatherings, dinner parties, gift openings and plenty of festive food, all of which can pose challenges for pets. Lisa Darling, DVM, PetSmart’s resident veterinarian and pet care expert, offers this advice for keeping pets safe, healthy and happy this holiday season and throughout the cold winter months. Create a Safe Home This time of year, holiday decor can include seasonal plants, ornaments and candles, which means plenty of intriguing and dangerous new sights and smells for pets. For example, extra electrical cords can be tempting new “chew toys” for pets. Darling recommends taking special care to ensure extra electrical cords for festive indoor lighting are not accessible to pets by taping down or covering to help prevent injuries. Christmas trees can also pique the interest of curious cats and playful pups. Darling urges pet parents to firmly anchor trees so they can take any potential playful swatting and to keep breakable glass ornaments higher up on the tree, out of pets’ reach, along with temptations like tinsel and ribbons. Candles can also be problematic, so it’s best to avoid burning them or put them far out of pets’ reach. Seasonal plants like holly, mistletoe and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs and cats, so if you plan to decorate your home with them, place them in an area your pet cannot reach. Savor the Season The holidays are filled with festive food, treats and candy, and although it can be tempting to share human foods with your beloved pets, resist the urge. “Table scraps such as turkey, gravy and stuffing may look harmless, but even small amounts can lead to serious health issues,” Darling said. Instead, include pets in your festive feasting by offering them pet-friendly treats that look and taste like the real www.CityNewsMagaziNe.CoM

thing. An option like Simply Nourish Merry Meals, in flavors like Turkey, Sweet Potato and Cranberry, are healthy alternatives to the human food on the holiday table. Additionally, PetSmart’s meat and cheese tray, pie slice and turkey leg made of rawhide are fun takes on holiday feasting specifically formulated for pets. Keep Them Calm The holidays can be a hectic time for people and pets. Extra visitors to the house, travel and commotion can leave pets feeling anxious. “Before company arrives, try putting your dog or cat in a Thundershirt, which is designed to provide a calming effect when they experience fear or discomfort,” Darling said. “Many pet parents also find that supplements can work by promoting calmness and behavior which may help stabilize pets’ moods.”

Keep Them Cozy and Warm During especially cold winter days and nights, look to your pet to gauge comfort levels and plan time to dress them accordingly. Generally, if your pet is small and short-haired, it’s likely he or she is sensitive to the cold. The same goes for older pets and those that may be frail or ill. Darling says that sweaters, coats and booties to protect their paws are all smart (and comfortable) solutions. Booties are particularly important for icy areas that may be salted and can help guard paws from the harmful solution.

LEGALLYYour SPEAKING IGnItE PowEr BYLINE HERE BY TRacY, LIfE & LEadERsHIp coacH

Creating Resolutions that Stick! The new year is upon us. The gift and energy of a fresh slate…a chance for growth, for change, for creation, for resolution of what we want to be different from the year before. Maybe it’s a resolution for improved health and weight loss, a resolution for a new career, a new business or enhanced relationship. Perhaps you’re resolving to manage your emotions, such as being less angry. Or you may simply resolve to cultivate more happiness and joy into your life every day. The challenge is not in what resolutions we set, the challenge is in how to achieve and sustain what we are after. I am sure we can all admit to the experience of setting a resolution, feeling ready and pumped, only to lose steam and commitment after a month or two. Yup, you’re not alone! There are a few key elements to creating sustainable, long-lasting change. And I am grateful to share them with you. 1.It’s all YOU - Before you can act on the resolutions you have chosen, you MUST start by accepting 100% personal responsibility for where you are in your life right now. Like, outrageous, full, entire responsibility. Period. Once you are able to say, yes, it is me that is the control center of my life, then you can go to key element #2.

www.CityNewsMagaziNe.CoM

2. Get Clear – What is your resolution? Why do you want? How will life be different once you get there? Who do you get to become on your way? What does it feel like? What will not getting there cost you? These are some great questions to ask yourself as you get clear and create that vision. It is with that clarity and vision that you will be able to make choices that align with that vision. That align with that big WHY behind what you want. When any obstacles arise, which they will, you can call on that vision – picture it, feel it, believe it – and that carries you through, inspiring you to continue going for it! 3. Say it Loud, Say it Proud – Share your resolution. Tell people. Write it with dry erase on your bathroom mirror. When you speak and see your intentions and goals, they become more real. The universe hears it too. Sharing it also creates accountability. Bonus tip – Write and speak your resolutions as if there are already happening. 4. One Bite at a Time – When you see your resolution, chunk it down. Create an action plan that allows you to take small, little shifts. When we start off sprinting, it leaves very little energy for the long haul, so see it as a marathon. Slow and steady. Small step by small step.

5. Practice Gratitude – When you are in a state of gratitude, you are reprogramming your brain into an abundance mindset. Abundance attracts abundance. Commit to a daily practice journal and write down 5 things you were grateful for in each day. The super bonus here is that it also instantly creates more joy and fulfillment in your life. You have everything inside you, to create everything you want…a life that you love! Go get it!

Boca Helping Hands Enriches Lives With Resources That Offer A Hand Up

COMMUNITY NEWS

Rosemary Krieger, Lifetime Achiever

BY Y LouIsE PEtRaItIs

By Dale King

“together, together, we can make a difference.” t

Financial Aid for Emergencies

this philosophy has guided Boca Helping Hands (BHH), BYLINE HEREa non-profit organization that assists neighbors in need, for nearly 20 years.

For people facing financial crises, BHH steps in with immediate aid. Dollars devoted to this program help prevent eviction, utility shut-offs and other emergency situations.

Founded in 1998, BHH started as a soup kitchen in a local church. t today, it’s a thriving, $2 million operation that provides a wealth of food, financial, medical and jobrelated resources for individuals and families throughout the community.

Like food services, the financial assistance program is designed “to supplement, not sustain,” swedenborg explains. Boca Raton residents who apply must document their needs and usually receive a onetime payment, reinforcing BHH goal to lend a hand up, rather than a hand out. “we don’t enable,” says swedenborg. “Our mission is to instill dignity and foster independence.”

Feeding the Hungry BHH welcomes up to 200 guests a day for hot meals, which are served at the Remillard Family Resource center, BHH spacious home at 1500 Nw 1st court. Lunch is offered Mondays through Fridays, and family dinners are scheduled thursday evenings. Patrons include people of all ages, from all walks of life--the elderly, single moms with kids, veterans, the unemployed and the working poor. the program is unique among community meal programs. guests can choose from a wide selection of healthy, upscale fare, and enjoy their meals in the comfort and comradery of a pleasant, wood-trimmed dining room that resembles a small café. Menu items are lovingly prepared, and beautifully presented, by a caring team of volunteers. Even special occasions, from st. Patrick’s Day to the Kentucky Derby, are celebrated with specially themed dishes, dining room décor, and staff dress. “Everything, from the food to the atmosphere, reflects our passion for our work and respect for those we serve,” says Development Manager Karen swedenborg. through the program, hot meals are delivered to the homebound as well. Over 5,000 pantry bags, filled with a variety of groceries, are also distributed monthly to qualified, low-income residents of Palm Beach County. Additionally, the program’s backpack service, which benefits 1,400 boys and girls from ten schools, ensures that children are well fed on the weekends. Keeping BHH warehouse and kitchen shelves fully stocked is a huge undertaking. Canned, frozen, and fresh goods—1.8 million pounds annually--are donated by individuals and foundations, corporate and community food drives, and food recovery partners. at present, these partners include 100-plus stores and restaurants, from Publix, winn-Dixie, t target and walmart, to whole Foods, trader Joe’s and the capital grille.

“I’ve gotten flowers, emails and calls,” said Rosemary in a recent interview, her smiling face still beaming with excitement. “i didn’t expect to get the award. i am still in shock.”

Excellent job skills are key to gaining independence. To help clients build these skills, and better compete in the marketplace, BHH offers both mentoring and training. The mentoring program develops job readiness by coaching clients, one-on-one, on writing resumes, submitting online applications, conducting job searches, and practicing proper workplace etiquette. classes to improve English and computer literacy are available as well.

many in the audience were themselves in tears as they stood and applauded Rosemary, whose beneficence has helped dozens of nonprofits, from AVDA (Aid to Victims of Domestic Abuse), the YmcA, march of Dimes, george snow scholarship Fund, wayne barton center, st. Jude church, boca Helping Hands and Florence Fuller child Development center, to name a few.

#IAmStigmaFree

Job training centers on jump starting clients’ careers, through fast-track courses for lucrative positions as hospitality workers, home-health aides, commercial drivers, call center representatives and help-desk technicians. the program is highly successful, both in completion and job placement rates, says Swedenborg. “Students enrolled to become home health aides, for example, rarely drop out, and 85 to 90 percent find work after graduation.”

Health Care Services Added this year, BHH expanded its spectrum of services with medical and dental care. Joining forces with another non-profit, Genesis Community Health, BHH established a clinic at 30 sE 6th street in downtown Boca, where people from across the county receive physical exams, lab tests, and other primary care procedures. the ultimate goal is to treat 3,000 patients a year.

Join the NAMI Broward County mental health walk to raise funds and awareness to help change perceptions about mental illness.

Among those at her table was AVDA executive Director Pam o’brien, who nominated Rosemary for the award. “she is a true giver who thinks of others before herself,” said O’Brien. “She wants to make sure that women and children in need have a safe place to go.”

coincidentally, barely a month after receiving the honor, Rosemary has jumped back into an AVDA cause. she is on the committee planning the Feb. 21 “Heart of a Woman” luncheon fundraiser at the Boca Resort. The speaker will be Michelle Knight, one of the three women abducted, imprisoned and repeatedly raped by Ariel castro at his home in cleveland. Nabbed by the suspect between 2002 and 2004 were Knight (who has changed her name legally to Lilly Rose Lee), Georgina DeJesus and Amanda Berry. They finally escaped in 2013 when Castro was captured, tried and sentenced to life plus 1,000 years in prison. He committed suicide behind bars.

when a shaky, stunned and teary-eyed Rosemary reached the podium, she thanked the nearly 1,000 people in the audience at the 29thAnnual woman Volunteer of the Year Luncheon & Fashion show at the boca Raton Resort & club. she had particularly kind words for her husband, ben, longtime partner in giving, and her three children who flew in from around the country: sons Kenneth, from New York and gregory, from Delaware, and daughter, catherine Krieger-Nelson, from Dallas.

Preparation for the Workforce

Funding for BHH many operations spans individual donations (40 percent), to dollars garnered through foundations and fundraising. The organization hosts two signature fundraising events a year, Bowling for Bread, part of the Boca chamber Festival Days calendar, and Monopoly & casino Night, highlighted by a Monopoly competition. grant monies, which totaled $665,000 in 2015, also contribute a fair amount to BHH revenues.

ven as 2017 begins, Rosemary Krieger of boca Raton is still in shock, she admits, from an event that took place in late 2016.

in November, the woman who has supported a score of local and area charities and nonprofits with financial donations, leadership for fundraising events and sustenance for facilities in their networks received the Junior League of boca Raton’s Lifetime Achievement Award.
