Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-All about summertime travel.

Summertime is travel time for most Americans. Whether you travel abroad, across the country, or plan a staycation to enjoy more local sites, staying healthy is a top priority.

One of the benefits of taking a vacation is breaking free from the daily grind of everyday life. Exploring new locales lets us discover new sights, sounds, tastes and smells. These stimulate the senses and open the mind to new experiences. Meeting new people from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, hearing new languages and dialects, experiencing new customs and lifestyles all provide experiences that are invaluable for personal growth.

To make the most of all the benefits of travel, it is important to stay healthy and alert. The simple things can make all the difference between a dream vacation and a travel nightmare.

Start each day with a healthful breakfast. This supports the physical and mental vitality needed to enjoy every moment. Carry healthy snacks like nuts and dried fruits to avoid hunger and keep your energy up.

Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-All about peaches.

Back on June 15, 1982, President Ronald Reagan declared August National Peach Month.

The United States was the greatest producer of the world’s supply of peaches at the time of the proclamation, producing 250 million pounds each year–benefiting the economy by generating revenue of approximately $325 million annually, according to U.S. Presidential Proclamation 4947.

What is not commonly known is that the peach originated in China in approximately 1,000 B.C. The peach tree was considered by the Chinese to be the Tree of Life and a symbol of immortality.

Peach trees were brought to the United States in a variety of ways: by Columbus during his voyage, by the French who brought them to Louisiana from South America and by the English settlers who came to America and brought them to Jamestown.

California produces 50 percent of the total American supply of peaches.

Peaches are a popular summer fruit and become available in the markets from approximately June through the end of August.

Bringing you the heart of the matter in LifeCycles by Laurie Edwards-Tate-All about skin cancer.

August is Sun Safety Month. With longer days and warmer temperatures, most Americans delight in the abundance of outdoor activities they have access to. However, with all that sun, comes some serious risks.

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, with more people having skin cancer than all other forms of cancer combined, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.

But fear not, it is entirely possible to enjoy the great outdoors while also practicing sun safety. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that up to 9,500 Americans are diagnosed each day with skin cancer meaning that practicing sun safety is a necessity.
