February News:

Dear Friends and Members,

We are in the middle of winter when there are many cold and windy days.  Don’t stay at home, reserve a seat on the Y bus!  The bus will take you door to door. Once at the Y you can spend the day taking health and wellness classes, participate in a discussion group and enjoy a hot lunch.

While the renovation continues we are all thrilled to be back having lunch in the auditorium. Thank you all for working with us while we renovate the kitchen.

This month please join us for our Sweetheart Dance February 8th. On February 15th we will have a General meeting right after lunch. This is your center! Please participate in the meeting with your suggestions and concerns.

Starting February 1, AARP volunteers will be here on Monday’s and Wednesday, by appointment only. Please sign up at the volunteer desk or call 212 569 6200 x 227 or x 231.

We look forward to seeing you at the Center for Adults for Living Well @ the Y

 

 

 

Shalom,

A note from the Health & Wellness Director, Wendy Isaacs

Happy New Year! January has always been a good time to reflect on the changes you want to make in the upcoming year.  Every year over half of the US population sets New Year’s resolutions. The problem is that many New Year’s resolutions simply do not stick.  The main issue is that people tend not to set specific enough or realistic goals.  For example setting a goal of going to all the doctors’ appointments that you have been putting off is not specific enough.  You need to decide which doctor it is you need to go to and set yourself a time limit that you can stick to. For example, setting a resolution to make an appointment to go to the eye doctor before the end of February would be a realistic and specific goal.  Many people set goals to get in better shape by starting to exercise.  If you don’t exercise, making a resolution to exercise every day is not a realistic goal.  Start with once a week.  Set yourself up for success by starting with something very small that you know you can accomplish. As you find success with goals that are attainable you will be motivated to do more.

Shalom
