  • The holiday season is a time of joy and togetherness, but it can also be stressful for many people. Gratitude is a powerful emotion that can bring happiness into our lives and put us at ease. It's the act of focusing on what you have rather than what you lack—and it has many health benefits.
  • We all know health care-related expenses add up! The good news is that if you’re looking for a way to save money while also enjoying significant tax benefits, then look no further than a Health Savings Account (HSA).
  • Marketplace Open Enrollment for health care insurance coverage is here through January 15, 2024, thus it’s the perfect time to brush up on tips for picking the best health plan to meet your needs for 2024. Whether it’s your first time enrolling, or you’re a seasoned enrollee— we’re here to break down the complex world of health insurance so you don’t have to!
  • It can be challenging to keep track of the differences between the various parts of Medicare. With so many different parts and coverage choices, it's understandable to get confused and overwhelmed.
  • It appears our world is growing older and sooner than later. To that point, the World Health Organization (WHO) projects that between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the world's population over age 60 will nearly double from 12 percent to 22 percent. While aging is inevitable for many, it’s a frightening prospect due in large part to the pervasiveness of ageism, as well as the negative stereotypes linked to aging.
  • Today, we're going to be talking about one of the most important topics for older adults in the United States - Medicare. It's rather surprising that only 22% of people are well-versed with Medicare, as per research conducted by nonprofit Transamerica Institute. This could be because many adults rely on employer-sponsored health insurance most of their lives, so when they retire, they may not be well-versed on Medicare.Welcome to ClearPath – Your Roadmap to Health & Wealth SM. I'm your host, Al Waller. Joining me today is Mihaela Vincze, public health expert, for nonprofit Transamerica Institute® and she’s going to be breaking down Medicare—what it is, why it’s important, how to enroll, and where to turn to if you have any questions.
  • Maintaining health involves taking care of ourselves and having access to health insurance. Yet, research from Transamerica Institute shows that 32% of Americans in their 20s do not have health insurance. Without access to medical care, it can be difficult to maintain our health and prevent unexpected medical expenses.For many young adults, dealing with health insurance can be confusing and burdensome— the good news is that it doesn’t have to be!
  • Air pollution can be caused by a variety of factors, many of which have dire consequences for our health. For instance, the recent series of wildfires across the country has led to unhealthy air quality that can trigger allergies, asthma, and other respiratory problems. Moreover, emissions from factories and cars, as well as the burning of fossil fuels like oil or coal, are also major contributors to air pollution. Even seemingly harmless household activities can release pollutants into the air we breathe.
  • It's no secret that water is vital to good health because every part of the body needs water to function properly specifically all cells, tissues and organs, which has got me wondering are we really getting enough. How do we know? Are some sources of water better for our bodies than others?
  • Did you know that research from nonprofit Transamerica Institute shows more than 1 in 4 (27%) workers work remotely1?With the rising popularity of remote work, many individuals are opting to leave behind the traditional office setting and move to more rural areas. While urban living has its challenges, it also offers many health advantages that often go unnoticed—and we’ll be highlighting some of those today.
