About the Author


Helga Hayse

Helga Hayse educates people on the role that money plays in family relationships. Her latest book Money, Love & Legacy: Conversations That Matter Between Generations is about the urgency for adult children and their parents to open the intergenerational dialogue they need to have about financial, legal, emotional, medical and end-of-life issues before it’s too late. She recounts her personal experience with transforming the pain of her own unfinished business into regenerative legacy between herself and her parents.

Her previous book “Don’t Worry about a Thing, Dear” - Why Women Need Financial Intimacy helps women understand why education about marital finances is vital for their protection if marriage ends.

Rededicate Yourself to Health

Back in March of this year I found out that I am now a type II diabetic... isn't that great? Yippie! Shortly after that revelation, my doctor scheduled surgery to relieve a prostate/urinary problem that wasn't going to go away. In the meantime, I stopped working out to heal my body.

These things happen to all of us at various times in our lives. Once the problem is out of the way, it's time to get back in the saddle. I knew I had to start my routine again as soon as possible. My health is just too important. The doctors and health professionals told me that with diabetes I had to watch the food I eat and I had to exercise.

So, I made a new decision. My routine was going to change. Instead of using my Total Gym and then walking or using the treadmill three or four times a week, I promised myself I would do my routine five times a week (Monday through Friday) and then relax on the weekends. I have been faithful to this schedule now for several months and I have reached the point that I look forward to it. How about them apples?

I feel good and I feel like I am certainly back on track. Do you need to re-dedicate yourself to your health? Hey, do it for a month and make it a good habit. I use the Total Gym for 15 minutes and I walk/use the treadmill for 30 minutes each day. This 45 minute routine, Monday through Friday, will get you healthy and it will help you lose weight. What more can you ask for?

We Boomers are now in the "Fall Season" of our lives. Health is a challenge for all of us but we can do something about it. We are not as young as we once were but we can still look good and feel good.

It's time to get started... re-dedicate yourself.
