A trip to the movies is a great way to spend quality time with your aging parents. If your folks have mobility issues, these five tips can help make their movie-going experience more enjoyable.

1. Give Yourself Plenty of Time

Rushing to get to the theater and find seating can make the entire experience stressful and frustrating for both you and your parents. Rushing a parent with mobility issues may also lead to an accidental fall or injury.

Give yourself plenty of time by leaving early and finding seating as soon as possible. If you arrive extra-early, bring along a book or a magazine to keep everyone occupied before the previews start.

By arriving early, you can eliminate the stress of having to find seating and getting settled.

2. Make Sure You Have All the Supplies You Need

Going to the movies doesn't have to be a major affair, but it's still important to make sure that you have all the supplies your parents need to enjoy their experience.

The secret is out. Curcumin, the primary ingredient in turmeric, is quickly becoming one of the most popular nutritional supplements around. There are numerous benefits to mind and body that have made this product high on everybody’s health wish list. If you are still in the dark about turmeric or curcumin then it is time to educate yourself and see what all the fuss is about!

1. Bioactive Compounds and Medicinal Properties

Most commonly known as the spice that gives curry its yellow coloring, turmeric has also been used as a medicinal herb in India for centuries. Research today is finally providing proof to what the Indians have been saying for years. Within this spice lives compounds called curcuminoids which have medicinal properties. Curcumin, the most important of these compounds is a powerful anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant.

The problem is that the content of curcumin present in turmeric is actually very low, so it is difficult to get the benefits from simply using it as a spice. It is recommended to take as a supplement, specifically as an extract, in order to realize its full potential. Additionally, since curcumin does not absorb easily, it is ideal to take alongside black pepper which helps increase its absorption rate.

2. Fights Inflammatory-Related Diseases

Our bodies use inflammation as a means of defense against pathogenic invaders. Without this, bacteria could easily take over our system and kill us. The benefits of the inflammatory response are only possible in the short term; more chronic deployment can be dangerous. It is widely thought that chronic inflammation plays a huge role in most of the documented chronic Western diseases including heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other degenerative conditions.

If you were to guess the recipe for success by looking at the ways people handle the financial lives, you might come up with something like “Work hard, play hard”. North Americans have a reputation in parts of the rest of the world for working incredibly long and hard, for no ultimate purpose. Science seems to support this way of thinking.

As many career people have no savings for retirement, this perspective is further vindicated. It begs the question, “If you can only support your lifestyle by working insanely hard, what will you do when you can’t work like that anymore?” It’s an important question; if workers have no method to one day dismount the hard work hamster wheel, this creates great uncertainty for the future.

All of this implies that, perhaps, the solution for having trouble making ends meet is not to work harder, but to cut down on the cost of living.

For a lot of us, flight delays can bring out the worst. You end up feeling tired and frustrated at best, and furious and ready to take revenge on the next person who crosses your path at worst. Flight delays are a huge headache for everyone, and even worse than a delay is a cancellation. Unfortunately, they’re also a part of flying. There’s plenty of upsides to flying the friendly skies, but also an abundance of potential downsides.

So whether it’s a Delta delay, an American delay or any other airline, how can you best deal with the situation?

Know Your Rights

Before you fly make sure you know your rights with that particular airline. A lot of people don’t feel empowered when they face a delay or a cancellation because they don’t know what their rights are as a passenger of that airline, or they may feel more empowered than they should based on what they signed off on.
