Romancing the Dance
OUR COVER STORY – Faith and Benny Agbayani celebrated their 49th wedding anniversary this year, and both agree that the success of their partnership is doing things together. Maintaining a close relationship is more than saying, “I love you;” it’s taking on challenges as a team, mastering new skills and learning together. Overcoming obstacles in life requires commitment, sacrifice and a willingness to cooperate. The Agbayanis do all these things well, but simply call it “sticking together.”
Are you ready for emergencies?
The wrath of natural disasters has been on full display in recent weeks as hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires and floods have ravaged large swaths of the world. While our first thoughts go to the victims of these tragic events and the challenges ahead for recovery, it may also cause you to step back and think about your own preparedness for a natural disaster. If you’re feeling under prepared, from a financial standpoint, for the possibility of an unwelcome weather event, consider creating an emergency plan.
What is the Blue Zones Project?
Children who attend Seagull Schools in Kapolei have a special bond with seniors at Seagulls Adult Day Center, located next door. Not only do the kūpuna and keiki regularly meet to play bingo, exercise on the lawn and do arts and crafts, but they also dine together on lunches that include whole grains, lean proteins and plenty of fruits and vegetables. Promoting good health is a top priority for Seagull Schools, which has been approved by the Blue Zones Project — a nationwide wellness program to enhance communities through proper nutrition, natural exercise, social interaction, spirituality and other healthy habits.
Age Bias in the Workplace
Bias is everywhere, including the presumption that you might be too old to work even when lengthening lifetimes allow you to do more for much longer. Nobody says it is easy for those of us in our 50s, 60s, or beyond, to overcome what others may think. Age bias is not just a myth but a fact to deal with in this new time of longer life spans. It is our task to learn to deal with common biases and meet the harsh realities of change.
