here is no question about
it: due to growing public
demand, home health
care is the wave of the future. The
reasons for this trend are com-
plex; they have to do with tradi-
tion, with technology and
with cost effectiveness. Here
are the top 10 reasons why:
1. Home care is delivered
at home.
There are such positive
feelings that all of us associate
with being home. Our home is
our castle, our refuge from the
storm. When we are not feel-
ing well, most of us ask to go
home. When we are feeling well,
we enjoy the sanctity of our resi-
dences and the joy of being with
our loved ones.
2. Home care represents the
best tradition in American
health care.
Home health agencies were
started as public agencies to seek
out the poor and the needy who
otherwise would go without care.
No one was turned away. This is
still true for most of America’s
home health agencies.
3. Home care extends life.
The U.S. General Account-
ing Office has established beyond
doubt that those people receiving
home care live longer
and enjoy living.
4. Home care keeps
families together.
There is no more
important social value. It
is particularly impor-
tant in times of illness.
5. Home care prevents or
postpones institution
alization.
None of us wants to be
placed in a nursing home
unless this is the only place
where we can obtain the 24-
hour care that we need.
6. Home care promotes
healing.
There is scientific evidence
that patients heal more quickly at
home.
7. Home care is less expensive
than other forms of care.
The evidence is overwhelm-
ing that home care is less expen-
sive than other forms of care.
Home care costs only one tenth
as much as hospitalization and
only one fourth as much as nurs-
ing home placement to deal with
comparable health problems
8. Home care reduces stress.
Unlike most forms of health
care, which can increase anxiety
and stress, home care has the
opposite effect. There is more of a
sense of safety and ease in your
own home environment.
“Quality care at home
is becoming more
important nowadays,”

Dorson Home Care

THE DRS SYSTEM™
Specializing in
treatment for:
I
t seems that
the one thing
we can always
count on is
change. When it
comes to energy
costs, change is
not usually good
news. Energy costs
go up. The cost of
energy affects the
price of everything
you purchase. Oil
is used to produce all manner of
plastics, chemicals and motor
fuels that find their way into
the costs of goods. Higher util-
ity bills affect the administra-
tive costs of business. All of
these costs are ultimately
passed onto the consumer.
But, you can make a dif-
ference. Obvious answers are
to drive less, turn down your
thermostat, and consume less
energy. We need to look for
alternate energy sources.
Gratefully, there is plenty of
good news.
Did you know that New
Jersey is the top state right now
for renewable energy incen-
tives? We’re second only to
California in the installations
of renewable energy in the
entire country. State rebates
are still strong as more and
more homes and businesses in
New Jersey convert to solar.
Our state’s SREC
program (Solar
Renewable Energy
Certificate) con-
tinues to be a
model for many
states. These cer-
tificates are trad-
able on an open
market and they
represent the gen-
eration of clean
energy from solar
sources. An SREC is generated
every time 1,000 kilowatts of
clean, renewable electricity is
produced from a solar system.
And they allow their owner to
say “this is clean energy and my
system produced it!”
Why is this important?
Because New Jersey requires
utilities to generate a certain
portion of their electricity from
renewable energy sources. If
H
appy New Year, read-
ers! You made it
through another New
Year’s celebration and now, it’s
back to work! Yes, I’m sorry
that the joyous celebration of
the holiday season is behind us
— the lights packed up and
put back in storage, the tree
thrown out or re-boxed and
the Menorah relegated back to
the obscure shelf in the china
hutch! So what season is it
now that January is here? Let
me try to explain, albeit not
as well as Hallmark or an
American Greetings poem, or
a Jackie Lawson electronic
card. No, just the reality of
the post-holiday season as
espoused by me, retirement
and estate planning specialist,
Mark Charnet.
•’Tis the season to refocus
your thoughts toward financial
freedom!
•’Tis the season to bring to the
front burner the necessity of
living below your means to be
able to save and invest more
for your future!
•’Tis the season to start a sys-
tematic biweekly automatic
investment program!
•’Tis the season to conduct a
life insurance policy review!
•’Tis the season to make an
IRA contribution!
•’Tis the season to buy a long-
term care protection plan or
insurance policy!
•’Tis the season to review your
disability insurance program!
•’Tis the season to initiate or
add to a college savings pro-
gram for either your kids or
grandchildren!
•’Tis the season to work
greater hours or start a busi-
ness, to increase revenue to
reduce debt or increase retire-
ment plan contributions!
•’Tis the season to get more
involved in your finances by
taking a free American
Prosperity Group (APG) class,
seminar or workshop!
•’Tis the season to create a
plan of action to become debt-
free, including your mortgage,
in under seven years!
•’Tis the season to plan your
next really big vacation — the
location, and how to amass the
money to get there and enjoy
it — in advance, so there will
be no bills to pay upon your
return!
•’Tis the season of major tax
increases and your responsibil-
ity to seek out better alterna-
tives to paying them in full!
•’Tis the season to spend more
quality time with your family,
as you will not be here forever.
•’Tis the season to review your
legal documents, will, power of
attorney, health proxy, living
will and ILIT (Irrevocable Life
Insurance Trust).
•’Tis the season to get healthy
by exercising more and eating
right, and perhaps losing a lit-
tle weight!
•’Tis the season to recognize
that your favorite charities
need your help more now than
any time before.
•’Tis the season to spend more
quality time with your spouse
or life partner.

A
s the story goes: A
man was arrested for
an offense and
brought before a judge for
arraignment. When advised of
the charge against him, the
man replied: “I didn’t know it
was illegal to do that.” When
the judge replied, “Ignorance
of the law is no excuse,” the
man exclaimed, “I didn’t know
that, either!”
That story illustrates what
many fail to fully understand
and appreciate: the law is bro-
ken when a person intends and
acts to accomplish an object
that is illegal. For example, a
person going over the speed
limit cannot defend the charge
by saying he was traveling at
the same rate of speed as all of
the surrounding cars.
Many people, and many
attorneys — who have not
spent their careers representing
criminal defendants — are like
that man in the story and
understandably may have
many misconceptions about
the criminal justice system.
At the outset of any crim-
inal prosecution, every person
who is the target of a criminal
investigation or charged with a
crime should seek legal counsel
at once, but not just any legal
counsel. At such a time, any-
one suspected of, or charged
with, a crime must obtain a
lawyer who is ready, willing
and able to clarify the criminal
justice system’s uncertainties.
To insure that all of this
accomplished requires the
counsel and assistance of a
mature, experienced and
respected criminal attorney
who knows the criminal justice
system.
Should you or anyone you
know ever be in need of such
counsel and assistance, Azrak
& Associates can help. Our
staff of attorneys possesses that
degree of maturity and experi-
ence, and has earned that level
of respect, so that anyone fac-
ing criminal charges will be
retaining a mature and experi-
enced attorney who can navi-
gate the uncertain journey
ahead to the best possible con-
clusion and give you the best
defense.

Dining Days are coming
I
am a very fortunate den-
tist. Everyday I enhance
people’s smiles, change
people’s smiles, and am
rewarded with smiles by a
thankful, satisfied patient. It
makes me feel good! We all
know the effect we feel when
a baby, a loved one, or even a
stranger, greets us this way.
Did you know that there are
at least 10 health advantages
to smiling?
1. Smiling makes us attrac-
tive.We are drawn to people
and draw them in with a
smile.
2. It changes our mood.Try it
when you’re sad.
3. Smiling is contagious. It
affects others and makes
them happier.
4. Smiling relieves stress. It
prevents us from looking
tired, worn down, and over-
whelmed.
5. It boosts our immune sys-
tem. It can prevent colds and
the flu.
6. Smiling lowers your blood
pressure. Scientific tests have
proven this.
7. Smiling releases endor-
phans, natural painkillers,
and serotonin.These are feel-
good and natural healing
drugs in our body.
8. It lifts your face and makes
and makes you look younger.
It works muscles for a natural
face lift.
9. Smiling makes you seem
successful and confident.
10. Smiling makes you more
positive. Try this test: Smile.
Now try to think of
something negative without
losing your smile. It’s hard!
Stay healthy, get
healthy, enhance, and show
that smile!

Y
ou get an annual check-
up from your physician
to monitor and manage
your personal health. Shouldn’t
you do the same for your busi-
ness? To keep your operation in
top shape, consider an annual
business review. The benefits of
such a review are evaluating
current performance to better
plan and execute future opera-
tions. Here are some things you
should evaluate in an annual
business review:
•Revisit your business strengths,
weaknesses and opportunities. Is
your competitive position improv-
ing or are you losing ground?
•How did you perform relative to
your business plan? Did you meet
or exceed your objectives? Are
sales, profit margins and cash flow
improving?
•Get a pulse on your customers.
An annual customer satisfaction
survey is a great way to assess per-
formance, obtain insight on
potential new products or services
and let your customers know how
much you value their business.
•Evaluate your team. Are you
developing a superior team,
employing their unique talents and
training them to improve perform-
ance? Do you reward on merit or
simply on seniority?
•How effective is your market-
ing? Are your current methods
and channels working well or are
you simply doing what you’ve
always done?
•Meet with your insurance agent.
Is your coverage adequate and
appropriate for changes in your
business activities and acquisi-
tions?
•Review your business tax strate-
gy. Identify opportunities for tax
savings. Are you using the right
form of business entity? Are you
aware of recent changes in the tax
code that might benefit your busi-
ness?
•How is your scorekeeping? Do
your measurements track your
progress or do they measure things
that don’t matter? What are the
key performance measures that
drive your business?
If you are serious about
improving your business, con-
sider a yearly assessment of your
operation. For any assistance
you need, give us a call.

Boy Scout Troop 101 of Wayne is proud to announce that Nicholas
A. Eliades was awarded the coveted rank of Eagle Scout on Novem-
ber 24, 2012. Nicholas is the 55th Eagle Scout in the 76-year his-
tory of Troop 101. He is pictured with his father, Maios, who also
holds the rank of Eagle Scout. Nicholas is a lifelong resident of
Wayne, a 2012 graduate of WVHS and is currently a freshman at
Fordham University. Through his Eagle project, Nicholas found a
way to give back to his church community of St. Nicholas in Wyck-
off by cleaning, painting, finishing and reorganizing the church’s
3,500-square-foot basement. Troop 101 meets every Friday at 7:30
pm in the Wayne United Methodist Church at 99 Parish Drive.

Y
our cat’s teeth and
their care are vital in
terms of keeping your
cat healthy and preventing
disease. Periodontal (gum)
disease is the number one
diagnosed problem in cats; by
the age of three, 70% of cats
have some form of periodon-
tal disease. Lack of healthy
teeth and gums can lead to
heart disease, liver disease
and kidney disease.
Cats start with deciduous
(baby) teeth- similar to peo-
ple. The baby teeth first erupt
between the second to third
weeks. At four months kit-
tens start to lose these baby
teeth, and gain the full num-
ber of 30 adult teeth by the
ages of 6 months. Cat teeth
are different from dogs in that
they have less grinding sur-
faces because cats have
evolved as carnivores.
Most dental problems
happen after the adult teeth
have formed. Plaque, a thin
coat of bacteria, accumulates
on the teeth, then it progress-
es to tartar, leading to gum
inflammation. Bacteria also
grows under the gum-line,
causing gum infection (gin-
givitis) which can lead to
tooth loss if not treated.
Other dental problems
include broken teeth, which
can show as being painful to
chew. Tooth root abscess are
infections which form at the
tooth root; they can cause
swelling under the eye. Cats
are prone to a specific type of
dental problem called a
FORL (Feline Odontoclastic
Resorptive Lesion). This is
equivalent to a cavity where
the tooth decays at the gum
line.
The signs of dental dis-
ease in your cat are similar to
people. These include bad
breath (halitosis), reluctance
to chew, redness at the gum
line and visible tartar on the
teeth. In advanced periodon-
tal disease the teeth are loose,
and may even fall out. Some
cats may be ill and quite sick
if the bacteria from the mouth
has spread to other organs,
such as the heart or liver. Your
veterinarian can assess the
level of dental disease your
cat has as part of a physical
exam and recommend a treat-
ment plan. This eventually
requires a full dental
cleaning to keep your
cat healthy by pre-
venting bacterial
spread in the body
and also prevent
tooth loss.
What can you do to
slow down the pro-
gression of dental dis-
ease?
Dental Diet. If your
cat eats dry food,
some food companies
now produce pre-
scription dental diets
which will lower tar-
tar buildup. They are more
abrasive on the teeth and
some contain an enzyme
which lowers tartar forma-
tion. These foods are avail-
able at your local veterinari-
an.
Brushing. The best way to
keep your pet’s
teeth clean is by
brushing. Ideally
this should be
done daily, but 2-
3 times a week is
a good goal. Be-
gin by rubbing
your finger around
your pet’s mouth.
Flavor it with tuna to make it
enticing for your cat. A finger
toothbrush can be used (it fits
around the end of your fin-
ger). Use pet toothpaste, for if
swallowed it will not upset
your pet’s stomach.
Brushing alternatives. If
brushing is difficult to accom-
plish, there are various other
products such as natural gels
to rub on the gums or water
additives that contain
enzymes and antiseptics to
lower tartar formation.
Now you should be able
to understand the importance
of keeping your cat’s teeth
healthy, and, along with your
veterinarian, recognize the
signs and symptoms of dental
disease in your cat. If you see
red gums, visible tartar, bad
breath, reluctance to chew, or
a localized area of tooth pain
then your cat likely has peri-
odontal disease. There are
many things you can be doing
to prevent and treat your cat’s
teeth problems.

ou have been repeatedly
told that finishing the
basement of your home
is a cost effective way of obtain-
ing additional floor space.
Since the basement is at a dif-
ferent level from your main liv-
ing area you can finish it to
gain a quiet and peaceful place
to use as your home office,
sport’s room, home theater, or
living area. Alternatively, you
can finish your basement to be
used as a children’s play room
or music room and ensure
peace and order in the rest of
your home. While the possibil-
ities are endless, you naturally
want to know how much the
basement finishing project will
cost.
Factors affecting the basement
finishing cost
Like any construction
project the cost of finishing the
basement of your home
depends on various factors.
Some of them are:
Size of the basement
Number of rooms needed
Need for egress windows
Appliances that will be used in the
finished basement
Electrical work needed
Custom carpeting
Number of support pillars that are
present
Amount of trim and molding
desired
Number of windows
Some of these factors can
be decided only after the design
of the basement is finalized.
Many home owners choose to
finish only a part of the base-
ment and retain the rest as stor-
age space. This will require a
door to access the storage space
with ease. You do not want
your guests seeing a pile of stuff,
your stuff, when they are
watching TV or playing some
pool in your basement. It does
not matter how nice you fix up
the basement if half of it is
filled by items collecting dust.
Other factors affecting the
cost
Apart from the costs men-
tioned above, many people
decide to add a bathroom to
their basement to minimize the
number of trips upstairs. A
dehumidifier too might be
essential to keep the finished
basement dry and usable. These
additions naturally will add to
the cost of your basement fin-
ishing project. However, the
extra costs will add to the com-
fort level of the basement room
and increase the value of your
home.
Remodeling costs
Homeowners planning to
remodel the basement of their
home will have to spend less
than those wanting a complete
basement finishing job done.
When undertaking a remodel-
ing project, the contractor will
be able to utilize some of the
existing tiles and other base-
ment finishing products. For
instance the floor and roof tiles
might be retained. Also, if the
existing windows have energy
efficient panes, there is no need
to replace them. This means
that you have to only pay for
the extra light fixtures and the
cost of labor for their installa-
tion. By investing only a small
sum, you will be able to convert
the unused playroom into a
home theater or home office.
Safety of finished basements
When it comes to a base-
ment finishing project your
imagination is the only limiting
factor. The superior specialized
basement finishing products
available can convert even the
most unpromising of basements
- one that is dark and damp and
has many support pillars and
uneven walls into a warm,
cheerful, and inviting room
that can be safely used by all
members of your family.

W
ith the hectic
holiday season
now behind us,
our thoughts turn to the new
year. We reflect on the warm
family memories enjoyed dur-
ing the year past, redirect our
energy toward resolutions,
and plan for wellness and
good health in 2013.
Dr. Cheryl Ziemba, geri-
atrician and medical director
of Cedar Crest in Pompton
Plains, was the featured
speaker during a grand open-
ing event and gave a capti-
vating lecture on “The Blue
Zones.” The content was
derived from a book by Dan
Buettner, titled “The Blue
Zones: Lessons for Living
Longer From People Who
Lived the Longest.” The
grand opening was a celebra-
tion of a new outpatient reha-
bilitation and wellness cen-
ter, exclusively for seniors
and open to the public.
Ziemba’s topic was perfect for
drawing a large audience,
which listened attentively
and complimented her with a
standing ovation. We all
want to know the secrets of
healthful longevity!
There were many imme-
diate questions: What are the
“blue zones”? Where are they
located? And what are their
characteristics? How can we
learn from history and
improve our health and well-
being in a natural way? Blue
Zones are the places in the
world where people live the
longest. Here are the secrets
of five Blue Zones:
1. Sardinia, Italy. Sardinia Is
home to the world’s longest
lived men. There are 10 times
the numbers of centenarians
per 1,000 people than in the
U.S. Four characteristics
were identified as having
extended their longevity.
First was their sarcastic or
“sardonic” sense of humor,
which helps to diffuse argu-
ments and shed stress, and
second was their deep sense
of loyalty to family and com-
munity. In regard to diet,
consumption of goat milk and
sheep cheese (pecorino), fava
beans, barley and dark red
wine were staples in their
diet. Exercise was also an
important part of daily life;
up to five miles of walking
each day was not uncommon.
2. Okinawa, Japan. Okinawa
is referred to as the Island of
the Immortals. There is less
prevalence of cancer, heart
disease and dementia here
than in America. Some of the
diet-related commonalities
are that they purposefully
restrict the number of calo-
ries eaten. “Hari hachi bu,”
they say, which means to eat
until you are 80 percent full.
Most grow herbs and veg-
etable gardens and commonly
use ginger, turmeric and soy
in their cooking. Another
important part of societal
belief is that one needs to
have a purpose to wake up in
the morning or that which
makes life worth living.
That’s why they surround
themselves with groups of
lifelong friends, who act as
social, emotional and finan-
cial support networks.
3. Loma Linda, California.
Residents of this city have
the longest life expectancy of
anyplace in the U.S. and
there is also a much lower risk
of diabetes, cancer and heart
disease. The culture is
focused on health, encourag-
ing a vegetarian diet and dis-
couraging alcohol, smoking
and soda. Nuts are a common
daily dietary ingredient used
to reduce the risk of heart dis-

“Trainer Geri McGurk has helped my flexibility,
stamina and shot distance.” – Rod Donnelley
TESTIMONIALS
Lorraine LaShell of Wayne, “Training at High Definition is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself!”
Rick Forlenza of Wayne can testify to the advantages of pre-season training, “I’m stronger, more
flexible, and my golf swing is better than ever.”
Donna Bobrowski of Clifton signed up for the osteoporosis program at her Doctors insistence. “I
just love it here! I walk out smiling and just feeling so good. I stand taller and am so much stronger.”
Karl Graff, CPA/PFS, CFP, “I have been training at HD
for over three years now, originally I thought I’d go for a
brief time, learn some new exercises and do them on my
own. But the variety, attention to detail and ability to
work with my knee issues kept me coming back. I can’t
imagine working out anywhere else.”
ease. An active lifestyle is
also important, where there is
engagement in regular physi-
cal activity and awareness of
the need to maintain a
healthy body mass index
(BMI). Volunteerism is heav-
ily practiced, which may be a
factor in reduced depression
rates and lower reports of
stress, and which may con-
tribute to an overall sense of
purpose. There is also strict
observation of Sabbath,
allowing for a weekly time to
focus on family, friends, God
and nature.
4. Ikaria, Greece. On this
small island in the Aegean
Sea, 35 miles off the coast of
Turkey, a person is three times
more likely to reach age 90
than in the U.S. There is a 20
percent less cancer risk, half
the rate of cardiovascular dis-
ease and almost no dementia.
The population consists pri-
marily of farmers and many
who engage in fishing. Their
varied Mediterranean diet
incorporates olive oil, whole
grains, fruit, a little fish, and
wild greens. Beverages include
goat milk, wine and herbal
tea. A nap is built into the
daily schedule at least five
times a week for half-an-hour,
which reduces chances of car-
diovascular disease by 35 per-
cent. Again, they report that
walking is part of their daily
routine.
5. Nicoya, Costa Rica. A
Costa Rican man at the age of
60 has about twice the chance
of living to 90 as compared to
a man living in the U.S. Their
diet is rich in colorful fruits,
and the water has high
amounts of calcium and mag-
nesium, which are essential
for bone health and muscle
strength. The philosophy
“plan de vida,” or “reason to
live,” gives a sense of purpose,
which centers around family
and contributing to the com-
munity. Faith also plays a
strong role; they support giv-
ing control of their life to
God.
So how do we learn from
history, live longer and
improve our health and well-
being? There are no secrets,
but we can incorporate the
common characteristics of the
world’s longest lived people —
the “Power 9”:
Move Naturally – Gain four
years.
1. Just move! Walk, dance,
exercise, go fishing.
Right Outlook – Gain four
years.
2. Know your purpose.
Contribute to your communi-
ty, volunteer, plan your day to
be productive.
3. Downshift and de-stress.
Take a nap, practice yoga, or
meditate.
Eat Wisely – Gain eight years.
4. Everything in moderation.
Eat until you are only 80 per-
cent full.
5. “Plant Slant.” Eat a variety
of colorful fruits and vegeta-
bles. Add nuts and goat milk
products to your diet.
6. Wine. Have a glass at 5pm.
Connect – Gain four years.
7. Belong. Be an active mem-
ber of your community.
8. Loved ones first. Cherish
and celebrate family.
9. “Right Tribe.” Surround
yourself with people of the
“right tribe” — that is, those
who share your culture and
interests. The key is to create
the right environment for
yourself.
The answer to the ques-
tion “How do we live longer?”
seems to be to embrace a
holistic lifestyle of wellness.
Three components need
attention — exercise the
body, keep the mind active
and purposeful, and surround
the soul with love.
Begin to reflect on
the warm family memories

9. Home care is the most
effective form of health
care.
There is a very high
consumer satisfaction associ-
ated with care delivered in
the home.
10. Home care improves the
quality of life.
Home care helps not
only add years to life, but life
to years. People receiving
home care function better.
It’s a proven fact.

article, including another 10
reasons why home care is so
important, please go to

Not only do American
families have to address the
above examples, but they
also need to address legal,
financial and health con-
cerns for their loved ones.
For these reasons, Dorson
Home Care created a publi-
cation that is the first of its
kind, “Dorson 2 Your
Health,” which is coming to
Life and Leisure’s website
this year.
“Dorson 2 Your Health”
is a valid resource that pro-
vides information to families
and caregivers. It connects
the leading topics in health
care today, such as financial
solutions, planning strate-
gies, health and wellness
measures, and how they need
to be integrated in order to
reach a family’s long-term
health care needs.
Sonia Scott is the CEO and
Founder of Dorson Home Care,
Inc. (est. 1988), as well as
Dorson Baby Care and Dorson

Sonia also founded Dorson
Community Foundation, a not-
for-profit organization that serv-
ices the youth of its community.

R
epetitive stress injuries
are a major issue
among our population
these days, especially since we
spend most of our days at a
desk. These injuries occur
when abnormal stresses are
repeatedly placed upon normal
joints due to poor posture or
joint positioning. I regularly
see patients in the office with
chronic headaches, neck pains,
shoulder issues and muscular
problems. In many cases, solv-
ing their ergonomic issues,
both at home and in the work-
place, can go a long way
toward helping them realize a
pain-free world.
Quite simply, ergonomics
is “science of fitting workplace
conditions and job demands to
employee capabilities.” By
modifying the work environ-
ment to fit the employee’s
capabilities and needs, they
realize more productivity and
less repetitive stress injury.
This, in turn, leads to less pain
and greater overall satisfaction.
And the best news is that you
don’t need an expert to evalu-
ate your workstation. Using
these helpful tips can get you
started on a path toward reha-
bilitating your chronic pains.
•Desk height is important:
everything should be readily at
hand and height should be set
so that your feet can touch the
floor. Your legs should form
angles of 90 to 110 degrees
from your body.
•Your body should be straight
and your head should be
upright and straight. Avoid
long periods of turning your
head in one place. Don’t
slouch or slump in your chair,
as this can lead to back and
neck pain.
•Adjust your monitor height.
A human being’s gaze is
focused 30 degrees below hori-
zontal and 30 inches from the
eyes. This means the top of
your monitor should be right
around eye level and directly
in front of you. Other positions
put your neck in bad positions
and can lead to headaches and
neck pain.
•When typing, keep your
wrists straight, keep your
shoulders square to the desk
and keep forearms parallel to
the floor. Adjust your keyboard
height if necessary to prevent
carpal tunnel issues.
•While using a mouse, ensure
that you’re not reaching for it.
Move it down next to your
keyboard and ensure that your
arm stays relaxed by the side of
your body and your forearm is
parallel to the floor, just like
when using a keyboard.
•Stand up and stretch or move
around every half hour. This
helps to prevent muscles from
tightening and stiffening up,
and will keep your body looser.
While these suggestions
can go a long way toward
reducing repetitive stress
injuries, they may not elimi-
nate them. If you are in
doubt or have chronic aches
and pains that don’t resolve,
get in to see your healthcare
provider and start addressing
them sooner rather than later.

Investigating ergonomics: Tips to help keep you
pain-free in the workplace By Dr. Robert Manning, Chiropractic Physician
E
very New Year ushers
in a host of new prom-
ises we make to our-
selves. Undoubtedly, every
year many of us fall short of
our highest expectations: we
don’t save enough, we didn’t
get that new body, we don’t
put enough of our time
towards what really matters -
you know those resolutions.
Retro Fitness of Wayne is
teaming up with NJ IRON
Magazine to help you achieve
all three of those goals this
year! We could not be more
excited to announce that we
are hosting our first ever
Weight Loss Challenge at our
Wayne location, 60 Owens
Drive.
Starting January 22 and
lasting 10 weeks, the fitness
experts at Retro Fitness of
Wayne will combine Weekly
Personal Training, Nutrition
Advice, Cardio & Strength
Training and Progress
Monitor-ing to help you lose
weight, get fit, and start feel-
ing better about yourself.
“The program is really about
a lifestyle change. We see
people achieving real results
when they stay committed to
a goal and adjusting their bad
habits. That means eating
right, staying active, and gen-
erally leading a healthier
life,” said Manager Mike Foti.
Participants will start
the program by having their
initial measurements taken –
weight, body fat, and resting
metabolic rate. Pairing you
with your very own personal
program sponsor will help us
understand where your fitness
level is and tailor a program
specifically for you. You will
have 1 session with a person-
al trainer each week that will
also monitor your progress,
and classes will provide car-
dio workouts. Part of your job
will be to track all the food
you consume. We’ll help to
make food recommendations
and personalize your nutri-
tion plan.
We are expecting to gar-
ner real results for our clients
and by the end of it antici-
pate participants to be able to
run in a 5K together with us
(part of the cost). One of the
biggest advantages in our col-
laborating with NJ IRON
Magazine is to be able to pro-
vide expert fitness guidance
for you throughout the pro-
gram. We already have con-
tent planned to educate you
on the importance of journal-
ing, understanding body
chemistry, keeping fitness
commitments and much,
much more. It’s really going
to be an all-inclusive program
and the person who loses the
greatest percentage of body
fat will receive free personal
training sessions, discount off
personal training, gifts, and
be featured as the Cover
Article in the May 2013 issue
of NJ IRON Magazine.
Stop in at Retro Fitness
of Wayne, 60 Owens Drive
for more details and to sign
up. You need not be a mem-
ber to take advantage. This
year, finally make the com-
mitment to yourself and GO
RETRO.

esolutions abound
come the dawn of a
new year. Fitness and
finances tend to dominate
many people’s resolutions,
with the goals of shedding a
few pounds and saving more
money both being popular res-
olutions.
For those whose focus
will be on finances in the
coming year, establishing a
budget for the New Year is a
good place to start. The fol-
lowing are a few tips for men
and women that should help
them plan budgets for the
New Year and reach their
financial goals over the next
12 months.
•Start with your income.
How much money is being
brought into the household
will go a long way toward
determining your budget. The
first month of the year, when
people will receive their earn-
ings statements from the pre-
vious year, should provide a
clear-cut picture of just how
much income the household
is generating. Once you have
that information, you can
begin to establish a budget.
•Make a list of your bills.
Knowing what’s coming in is
important when establishing a
budget, but so is having a firm
grasp of what’s going out.
Make a list of all of your
monthly expenses, from the
big ones like a mortgage pay-
ment to the smaller ones like
how much you spend on a cup
of coffee each day. When
making a list of these expens-
es, make note of the day bills
are due each month. This can
help you determine which
weeks of each month you’ll
be able to save more money
and which weeks you will
need to tighten your belt and
pay existing bills. Such
knowledge will help you
establish a budget.
•Make a list of anticipated
expenses. Some expenses are
there every month. Others are
those you expect, such as
home improvement projects
you plan to finance in the
coming year. Make a list of
these anticipated expenses.
This may involve taking some
inventory of things around
the house, such as any appli-
ances that may be on their last
legs, bigger issues like a roof
that may need to be replaced
or a bathroom you finally plan

•’Tis the season to get a phys-
ical exam from your doctor!
•’Tis the season to stop mak-
ing excuses, broken promises
and false resolutions!
•’Tis the season to ask yourself
“Do I really need that” before
you buy it!
•’Tis the season to forgive
someone who might have
wronged you, as living with
negative energy leads to
sickness.
•’Tis the season to ask others
for help if you need it!
•’Tis the season to ask God to
intervene and grant you super
human talent, motivation and
qualities to achieve your
dreams and aspirations.
•’Tis the season to make an
investment into you for self-
enrichment, like a great audio
book program for the car, a new
wardrobe so you can look
smashing at your job and in the
eyes of the public, but, most
importantly, in the mirror!
•’Tis the season to put pro-
crastination behind you once
and for all!
•’Tis the season to set goals,
big and small, short-term and
long-term, and to achieve
them!
•’Tis the season to shed anger,
resentment and negativity,
replacing them with drive,
ambition and promise!

not, they are subject to fines
from the state. The utility
companies can’t meet these
requirements, so they are
allowed to purchase enough
clean energy certificates
(SRECs) to meet the required
standards. Since it is very cost-
ly to build clean energy facili-
ties, utilities purchase SRECs
from home and business owners
who are solar system owners.
This makes them a valuable
resource in the payback of solar
investments.
But SRECs are only one
part of the payback on a solar
system purchase. The federal
government also gives 30% of
your system cost back to you in
the form of a tax credit when
you purchase a solar system.
Combine that with the savings
on your monthly utility bill and
you have a purchase that
should show a payback of 5 - 8
years and a return on invest-
ment in excess of 10%. With
most solar companies offering
“No Money Down” lease and
purchase options, all you need
is decent credit and you can get
solar. And your home goes up
in value too! $1,000 for every
dollar saved on your annual
electric bill. That’s $20,000 on
an average home and no real
estate taxes.
And finally, the effect on
the environment is huge. A
typical solar system is equiva-
lent to planting acres of trees.
This effect will benefit you and
your children.
Visit your local solar store
for more details!

to remodel. Once you have
compiled this list, research
how much each project figures
to cost you. This should give
you an idea of how realistic
each project is for you, and
whether or not you will be
able to tackle multiple proj-
ects in the coming year.
•Don’t forget about debts.
Many people plan a budget
more to get out of debt than to
save for a rainy day. When
establishing a budget for the
year ahead, calculate how
much debt you’re currently
carrying. Though you can do
so if you prefer, it’s best to
exclude existing installment
loans like a mortgage or a car
note from your list of debts.
Though those can be consid-
ered money you owe, they are
more in line with the monthly
expenses you need to live than
credit card debts you simply
need to get rid of. If your debt
is considerable or even small,
see if there is anything you
can remove from your list of
monthly expenses (i.e., cable
television or streaming video
subscription) so you can
devote that money to elimi-
nating your debt. In addition,
those with considerable debt
should prioritize ending that
debt over projects you want to
tackle that aren’t exactly
necessities. For example, if
your kitchen is outdated but
still safe and functional, post-
pone the kitchen remodel
until you have eliminated
your debt.
•Decide where you can cut
costs. Chances are you’re
establishing a budget because
you have a specific financial
goal in mind or because you
examined last year’s financial
statements and realized you
fell short of your savings goals.
So you likely know you need
to cut some costs, and part of
establishing a budget is decid-
ing which costs you can cut.
Some of the more common
ways people cut costs at the
dawn of a new year include
deciding to dine out less, can-
celing a cable television sub-
scription or removing premi-
um channels from their pack-
age, driving less to save money
on fuel and forgoing store-
bought coffee for java they
make at home. Each of these
budget cuts can lead to sub-
stantial savings over a full year,
and none of them are life-
altering to the point of lower-
ing a person’s quality of life.
•Include savings into your
budget. Living on a budget is
not always easy, especially for
those people who are not used
to doing so. When establishing
your budget, include weekly,
bi-weekly and monthly savings
goals into the budget. If you
stick to this plan, you will
have something to show for
your financial discipline at the
end of each month, and light
at the end of the tunnel can be
a motivating factor as you
adapt to living on a budget.
The New Year is a great
time to turn over a new finan-
cial leaf, and establishing a
budget is a great way to get
started on a path to a brighter
financial future.
