March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb – we hope. The long winter months can provide challenges as we try to stay active. But spring is upon us and it is time to think about how we can get moving. When I give tours of the Center I try to emphasize the many exercise classes from which to choose –there really is something for everyone. But, for many, exercise is simply not their thing. As a participant at the Center, the number of steps you get just coming in and making your way around the Center compared to a small apartment or a modest sized home is tremendous. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries. Believe it or not 50 – 60 year olds fall more than older people and falls are the leading cause of traumatic brain injury. For many, simply the fear of falling limits physical activity. But, probably the most important thing you can do is to exercise in an appropriate environment. The exercise opportunities at the NSC focus on balance, strength, flexibility and endurance. There also are specific balance classes that focus on activities of daily living that help to prolong independence. My dad was a man of few words but immeasurable common sense. I can still hear him saying, “watch where you’re walking.” All too often, our mind is elsewhere and we are not really paying attention to what we are doing and “where we are walking”. Being more present and making an effort to maintain our mobility can go a long way to improving our quality of life. As the weather warms and before we are in the heat of the summer, there are many safe and wonderful places to explore in the greater Newark area. We will be highlighting some of these areas in upcoming newsletters - be sure to look for them! Enjoy spring!
STATE OF DELAWARE GRANT IN AID As you know, the state of Delaware reduced the Grant in Aid to all non-profits last year by 20%. For the Newark Senior Center, this resulted in a $90,000 reduction in funding. Senator Bushweller from the 17th District recently wrote a piece for the Modern Maturity Newsletter. I am reprinting his summary paragraph here. “If you agree with me that senior centers like the Modern Maturity Center provide important services that greatly help sustain the quality of life of Delaware seniors, I suggest you pay attention to the budget process and make your opinions known to your Senators and Representatives. They really do want to know what you think.”
POSTAGE RATE INCREASE The USPS recently increased the postage rates. As a result, the cost of mailing this newsletter to your home went up 7 cents. This is a significant change when we mail nearly 2500 newsletters each month. You can help by picking your newsletter up in the lobby each month. Pick up dates are listed on the cover of the newsletter. Thank you.

Member cost: $5, Non-Members: $15 About the Instructor: Bruce began painting with watercolors soon after graduating college. In part it was a way to balance against the "left brain" demands of the occupation he had chosen, but more than that, he was attracted by the lumenosity the medium could impact, particularly to the sky & water. Retirement has offered the opportunity to persue watercolorwith a renewed passion. His objective is to continue developing abilities both to see and to render, while also sharing what he has learned with others.

MARCH FITNESS CORNER Your diet is a very important part of your health, and plays a key role in things such as your blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, weight, etc. Giving your body the right nutrients and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help to keep you active and independent. One of the best ways to make sure you are eating a healthy diet is to track your food! Tracking your food intake will give you insight into many aspects of your eating habits. You may begin to see you are missing an entire food group (i.e. veggies), or that you are overeating. Tracking your food and beverage intake can be as simple as writing it down in a notebook, or recording it on an online site such as www.supertracker.usda. gov. Whichever way you choose to track your food, be accurate and detailed to help get yourself eating a healthy diet! ~ Contributed by Kristin Weiher, Fitness Center Site Manager, CardioKinetics
