Business travel or a busy lifestyle can interrupt your exercise routine. Jazzercise Founder and CEO Judi Sheppard Missett says that with a little planning, you can keep your exercise goals on track.
Many people wake up refreshed and ready to move, motivated to exercise for the sheer pleasure it brings them. Working out is a mood booster that leaves them feeling energized, and without it, they feel restless and uncomfortable. For these people, exercise is an innate pleasure, important to their sense of well-being.
Celebrate the harvest season and thank your family and friends by serving a bounty of nutritious options this Thanksgiving.

Along with a beautifully roasted turkey, dress your holiday table with an abundance of colorful food. Jazzercise Founder and CEO Judi Sheppard Missett says that eating healthy can be just as filling and satisfying as those high calorie favorites.
Aging gracefully is like a well performed dance; it requires repetition and challenge— both mentally and physically. Loss of motor skills and memory can be avoided with exercise and mental stimulation, the keys to a youthful body and mind.
A flexible body and fluid mind are hallmarks of youth, and Jazzercise Founder and CEO Judi Sheppard Missett says that besides being fun, dance is a mind-body experience that requires focus, coordination, and learning new moves. All of these skills can slow down the aging process.
As the seasons change, so can your mood. For some, the shorter days and longer nights trigger the “winter blues,” a form of depression called seasonal affective disorder (SAD). This usually occurs at the same time every year, and people who live in places with long, cold nights are at greater risk.
Like all forms of depression, it occurs more often in women than men. Symptoms build slowly, and intensify as autumn’s splendor bleaches to winter white. Jazzercise Founder and CEO Judi Sheppard Missett recommends taking steps to keep your mood and motivation steady throughout the year.
